Anubius, what society do you know of that adheres to free market principals?

I completely agree, and think this is a great idea! However, Norway stops way too short. Norway should disband Statoil, and ban any production of oil of gas from their country. Also, Norway should realize the EVIL of their 325+ billion dollar oil pension fund. It needs to help those third world countries who are suffering the worst from climate change caused by the sale of Norway’s filthy oil. They have become the worlds wealthiest country (per GDP) by greed at the expense of others!Norway is the worlds THIRD largest exporter of oil, Norway COULD take a real leadership position here.

Great lets, buy a Prius. Oh yes that’s right over the operational lifetime they are more polluting than a new generation small diesel. But that’s OK she’s in politics and only needs to worry about headlines until the next election not actually doing something good in the long term. By the way you tube or Google giwizz crash test (the car in the background of the picture in the article) buy one of these cars and you won’t need to worry about the Earth dieing… You will first.

Manufacturers of fuel and machinery require a kick in the pants if we expect anything to get done. The hour is late brothers and sisters.

If the media and its celebrities take up the mantel and start promoting “boring” cars, they may have a chance.

With electric and hydrogen cars just around the corner, something like this would give a needed shove to the automakers to accelerate their R&D for the aforementioned cars. This legislation would work far more easily in a country like Norway, which has a small population and very good mass transit infrastructure, than in a larger country.Perhaps if this legislation were enacted, other countries would follow suit, eventually prompting a dialogue in this country for similar laws.
