Hysteria over global warming is turning Americans into a bunch of Henny-Pennys, rushing about screaming for someone to do something before we boil to death in the oceans' waters.

And though cleverly crafted to minimize the harm, the proposal affirms the popular sentiment that automakers own the responsibility for stopping global warming.
