    Government Lab Shifts Focus From Electric to Natural Gas Cars

    • The EPA matters. It's what's pushing hybrid and duel tank technology...Cleaner, cheaper and better mileage can ONLY help WPRT..Politics have blinded you or your just plain ignorant. Go ahead and vote against your own interests...

    • "Canada, which has the tar sands are NOT piping it through their country and getting a higher price from Japan and China...Why??"

      Canada doesn't even have a natural gas export facility up and running yet. You don't have a clue what you are talking about.

      "And Canada makes sure that their deep water rigs has 2 pipes/pumps on each rig, so if one fails, like in the gulf, the other can be turned on to pump."

      That's in case of mechanical failure, not a rupture, that wouldn't have made any difference in the Gulf. The redundancy is to keep the oil flowing at all times, it won't stop a spill. In fact Obama needlessly shut down drilling in the gulf which is the exact opposite.

      "Canada is expanding their oil and nat gas safely and became a major exporter."

      As demonstrated above you don't have a clue about safety.

      "Explain this to me like ima 4 year old , please.."

      No obviously that would be over your head..........

    • Obama's EPA will lift nat gas companies, not Romney who would roll back standards...,.
      DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

      BAF Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (CLNE), today announced the acquisition of Belleville, Michigan-based ServoTech Engineering, Inc., an auto emissions solutions provider. BAF, the leading U.S. provider of natural gas vehicle systems and conversions, recently produced its 20,000th compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle conversion. BAF is the first CNG converter to be recognized as a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) for gaseous fuels.

      BAF President John Bacon said, “ServoTech’s long-term relationship with Ford will support BAF in developing calibrations more efficiently going forward. We expect this will enable BAF to have CARB-and EPA-approved vehicles on the road faster than ever.”

    • "obama wants to make sure fracking is done safely

      not sure how any reasonable person would oppose this

      ah...reasonable....."

      The EPA is stacked with activists who falsely accuse, shut down, and then try to contort their "science" to meet their agenda. Get a clue...........

    • Canada, which has the tar sands are NOT piping it through their country and getting a higher price from Japan and China...Why??
      And Canada makes sure that their deep water rigs has 2 pipes/pumps on each rig, so if one fails, like in the gulf, the other can be turned on to pump. Canada is expanding their oil and nat gas safely and became a major exporter. Why can't we do that????
      I don't see the major oil companies running away from Canada because of higher taxes and oversight..Explain this to me like ima 4 year old , please..

    • But Baby Bush said the BANKS do not need regulations. Ha

    • Oboma wants to make America a third world country we need to send his butt back to africa.

    • Oil sand spills occur and are clean much easier than
      The water base spills. In NA ground oil occur naturally as well as the depper water in the ocean.
      Nature has a natural way of taking care of this.
      If u doubt it what happen to the oil in the gulf. An it was not all cleaned by man not even 50%. Mother earth is truly efficient an has micro organisms that do eat carbon/digest not my opinion a fact

    • obama wants to make sure fracking is done safely

      not sure how any reasonable person would oppose this

      ah...reasonable.....

    • "These large companies set aside money for lawsuits. already knowing that they are not regulated enough,"

      What ?
