Senator Barbara Boxer, chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, is holding a hearing Wednesday, October 10, 2007 titled "Air Pollution Challenges for California's Inland Empire." The hearing, which will be webcast live 9 AM PDT, will discuss the problem of pollution from diesel trucks and trains. The witness list does not include anyone from VW or BMW, so I would not expect much talk of clean diesel. When Inhofe was head of the senate environment committee, he was supportive of weak diesel regulations. If Inhofe tries to defend diesel in this hearing, I expect Boxer will react very much like she did in the video above.
