U.S.: California’s cars could be blacked out … of black paint jobs

  • It’d be a pretty good joke if it wasn’t true. The California Air Resources Board thinks that dark-colored cars have to work harder to stay cool, which means higher emissions. They’re looking to set a standard for 20% solar reflectivity by 2016, which black cars can’t pull off. So, if you’re in California, you may not be able to car that’s the same color as your soul in a few years. Sorry about that. source
