Summary

ROBERT REDFORD,IF YOU’RE GOING TO PUT OUR LIVES AT RISKFOR THE SAKE OF CONSERVING OIL,AT LEAST BE HONEST ABOUT IT

You’ve done some great acting in your career, Mr. Redford, but we think your most incredible performance may have been the radio ads you narrated last week — the ones in which you said that higher government fuel economy standards would give us cars that were "safer".

Why was that such a great performance? Because claiming that more stringent fuel economy standards will increase vehicle safety is absolute nonsense.

The government’s existing fuel economy standards already kill people by restricting the production of larger, more crashworthy cars.
