A sweeping proposal by President George W. Bush to dramatically cut U.S. gasoline consumption over the next decade–and perhaps change U.S. car culture– was greeted with widespread skepticism from automakers, environmentalists and political experts yesterday. Greenpeace called the plan, unveiled in Mr. Bush’s State of the Union address to Congress Tuesday evening, “delusional,” while the automobile industry insisted it was already going down the environmental green road and did not need new legislation to reduce fuel consumption.
