CARB seeks to ban black as a car paint color

Really, you couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

The California Air Resources Board has authored an impressively detailed study [1]that shows how cars with black and dark paint colors absorb more heat and therefore have to use more air conditioning and therefore contribute more to pollution and global warming. The next step, naturally, is to ban black as a car paint color [2]. What’s a gansta to do?

Thanks goodness Henry Ford [3]didn’t live to see this day.
