Thanks for the nice show today - a timely topic.
I want to comment on one caller's point about the return to the 55 mph speed limit if we are serious about reducing gasoline consumption. Reinstating that limit can be done in a very short time period compared to modifying the nation's auto fleet to be more efficient or electric (both worthy long-term goals). We did it before as a nation, and it had the side benefit of saving many lives.
I think you made a mistake by ignoring this caller and immediately taking the next call, from someone who was driving no less. (You should never take calls from people who are driving, in my opinion.) None of the expert guests commented on the old idea of a reduced speed limit. What does that say about our country if we can't speak of possible sacrifice to achieve higher goals?
