Maine's Environment - What good is an environmental law that doesn't protect the environment? Not much, if you look at Maine's emissions law. A man from Cape Porpoise showed Maine's Board of Environmental Protection that his diesel car runs clean, but was denied an exemption to the rules. This episode shows, once again, the dangers of using a particular scientific theory to formulate broad-based public policy. Technology changes much faster than rules.
