That’s the story of Washington this past week. Case in point: top automakers, represented by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, have asked President-elect Trump to review standards for cars’ fuel economy and emissions regulations, which were center points of President Barack Obama’s policies.

Environmentalists want the standards left intact, saying they are cutting pollution and reducing our dependence on oil.
