Court Gives ‘Green Light’ to Green Cars in Vermont, Clean Air in NH

September 13, 2007

A court order clearing the air in Vermont should also lead to a healthier New Hampshire. Granite State environmentalists are hailing yesterday's federal court decision that allows Vermont and other states to require that new cars being sold meet the same tough emissions standards as California uses, to reduce global warming pollution.

Catherine Corkery of the Sierra Club's New Hampshire office says the ruling is an opportunity for American carmakers to get back on the road to success.

"People have shown again and again that they want cars that go farther on a gallon of gas, and this is a real opportunity for Detroit to make these cars that people expect."

Corkery says the Vermont decision gives New Hampshire an opportunity to enact its own, stricter vehicle emission standards -- and the sooner the better. The combination of pollutants from local roadways and wafting in from out-of-state has left New Hampshire with one of the highest asthma rates in the country.

"The emissions that come out of the Ohio River Valley and the Atlantic seaboard all come up and bring all that pollution right here to New Hampshire."
