Myron says small cars kill

Listen to him on PBS Newshour 2001-08-01

"Higher fuel efficiency standards costs lives... in 1993 alone higher [Corporate Average Fuel Economy] cost 1300 to 2600 lives. Multiply that by 20 years (sic) and you've got a lot of people who've died because of fuel efficiency standards... because consumers have not had the choice to buy safer cars that they want."


Is he saying it's safer to drive hefty SUVs that the public craves like a fix of cocaine that makes them feel good? Or does he think we're not burning enough diesel per mile for our own good?

Next I'll find Myron speaking against Antibiotic pills because thousands of people have choked to death on them.
