That’s just crazy talk (update)

From Jim Manzi at the Corner, this illustration of just how useful the stupid and counterproductive new CAFE standards actually are:

Keith Hennessey points to Department of Transportation analysis that projects (using the same climate model as I referenced in my Waxman-Markey post) that the impact of moving to these new mileage regulations should be that in the year 2100 temperatures should be 0.007C less than they otherwise would be, and sea levels should be 0.06 centimeters less than they otherwise would be. In other words, these standards will have no conceivably appreciable effect on global-warming impacts.

Ahh, but they sure did taste good going down, didn’t they Mr. President?
