Cash for Clunkers Program Hurt the Environment

leave a comment »

I always thought that the CARS program back in 2009, also known as Cash for Clunkers was one of the dumbest things ever.  

Well, according to the Automotive Recyclers Association, because shredded cars were not properly recycled, all the seat foam, glass, plastics, and whatnot were interred to landfills, rather than recycled.  This means the CARS program’s efforts of taking those less fuel efficient cars off the road was more of an environmental bane than if there were no CARS program.

This is another shining example of what happens when the government gets involved in business.  Imposing arbitrary standards based on junk science only created a bigger problem – and another Obama failure.
