None of this matters. If you are going through the border, they can refuse you entry if you don't comply.
Why put up with extra NOx
Why indeed. NOx limits were crafted to kill off high performance engines (high efficiency, high power output per liter of fuel, less HC, CO2) by the car haters. Why worry at all about NOx when the automobile sources are down in the noise level compared to background NOx levels?
Capitalism -- it works, as long as government is prepared to stand behind the capitalists with a big enough stick.
In this country, capitalists stand behind government. Very close. And that thing isn't a stick.
Yeah. Milk gives me gas too.
I take it you have never worked in tech for any branch or part of the government.
I have. And it's OK until consultants and private contractors smell a profit opportunity. They undermine the gov't agency until it can neither do the work itself or properly oversee the contractors. Look at NASA (to a certain degree) and the FAA (completely pwned by industry).
It is the worse possible solution for the government to own and operate a communications network.
Often stated but never proven.
I have FiOS broadband only (not from Verizon). All I have is a 100Base-T cable from the ONT (Optical Network Terminal) on the outside of my house**. What that cable goes to is none of my provider's* business.
*Frontier. Actually a pretty decent company to work with. When I upgraded my defunct wireless broadband to their system, they 'stuck' me with a maintenance contract (couple of bucks a month added) but said I could cancel it once the system was up and running and I wouldn't be calling for support. So when I called to cancel it, the account sales person tried reading me all the reasons I should keep the add-on, like anti-virus, O/S support, etc. I just said, "I run Linux" and she said, "Never mind. You won't be needing all that support." Charge removed, no arguments.
**When the installer showed up and put in the ONT, he was getting ready to crawl up in my attic with their MOCA coax. I just handed him the Cat 5 cable (pulled right to the ONT location) and told him that would be all I'd be needing. He just plugged it in and left with a big grin (no crawling through the attic insulation that day).
Been around for a few decades.
Google has the advantage over office buildings, schools, etc. in that the amount of energy consumed by data centers is so large that the cost of additional sensors can be justified. And the more inputs you have, the 'smarter' your controllers can be.
Yes and no. ASN.1 predates his term in office. But his grant of retroactive immunity to the telecoms just perpetuates this sort of dirty dealing. A standards-making body might try to demand that participants declare their interests in patents or government espionage units. But if they have a 'get out of jail free' card from him, they can say or hide anything they want.
choose between God and damnation
But which god? There are so many choices I feel like I'm stuck in an existential cereal aisle.
The British seem to have a somewhat more relaxed view of secutity.
European roads have bends in them.
It's spelled 'Benz'.
Car manufacturers were forced to open up their diagnostic codes for car owners
So I'll buy a John Deere and use it as my daily driver.
The clash of ideas is the sound of freedom.
