Say goodbye to Jet Black

California is going to ban Jet Black because it requires more energy to cool than any other color; This is what the American people willingly voted for last Nov so get ready for more of the same. I know this is political but I'm not trying to be partisan, this is the path we've chosen.

It was a proposed measure. Not definite. There's a "discussion" going on over in the general forum at the moment.

Secondly, CARB has announced that they're backing off the idea for now.

Thanks. Was going to "Snopes" it but figured it would be too new. I'd just seen it for the first time last night.
