The exhaust is exhausting

Wowie-howey, let’s finally admit that the time has come to tax gasoline- and diesel-burning vehicles to the max. My office in Aspen is at the corner of West Main Street and Third Street. I can’t open my windows without coughing at the toxic fumes spewing from the vehicles speeding by, or depending on the time of day, belching in their stop-and-go morass.

Despite the leaderless bumbling and fumbling from our Biden administration, let’s march on as quickly as we can to a green future. It’s a must. And let’s make it easier for the moms and pops and for the grannies and grandpas to go green for free, if we can possibly afford it.
