I like how that we are laser focused on 1 specific kind of pollution as a percentage (that has been very good vehicle emissions wise for over a decade)
while ignoring others altogether and not caring about grams per mile
all the while ignoring massive sources of that type of pollution from industrial sources.

Then also forgetting that supply side pollution
groundwater, heavy metals and outright spills dwarf the associated vehicle pollution .

At some point you would think we would look at the other sources along with combating a recent trend on lax maintenance and inspection of industrial systems sometimes close to 70 years old.
