CFACT’s Marc Morano, editor of Climate Depot, appeared on Fox News yesterday to discuss why trucks, SUVs, and other “gas guzzlers” are responsible for last month’s surge in auto sales.

“Americans want cars that are practical, big, safe. They don’t want to make anemic political statements driving around in these small electric cars,” Morano said. He highlighted the continued failure of electric vehicles despite massive government subsidies, mandates, and regulations. However, he also warned that the federal government’s new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards are going to squeeze SUVs in the coming years and put them on the chopping block.
