Here is what it takes to make an absurd number game -- cunning rules, crafty calculations and clueless regulators. Or how else do we describe the new proposal from the Steering Committee of Emissions Regulations (scoe) of the Union Ministry of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways on carbon dioxide (co2) emissions standards to improve fuel economy of cars and two-wheelers! It is shocking the way they have applied convoluted principles to define and justify the proposed roadmap. They simply want official sanction for more time to increase co2 emissions and oil guzzling; legitimize status quo until 2015, and, consider real improvement only in 2020.
