Driving the Future, Margo Oge’s Upcoming Book

Margo-Oge2Ken Kimmell, President of the Union of Concerned Scientists, recently wrote a great review of Margo Oge’s upcoming book, Driving the Future.  Margo Oge is the mother of my friend, Nicole Oge, and both of them are powerful women who don’t take no for an answer.  Margo served with the Environmental Protection Agency for 32 years and recently retired as the Director for the Office of Transportation and Air Quality, a role she served in for 18 years.  During her time with the EPA, she made changes that were previously deemed impossible by auto industry executives.  Through an alliance with select members of the auto industry, politicians, and regulators, Oge’s leadership led to changes in policy that resulted in greater fuel efficiency, cleaner cars, lighter trucks, and electric vehicles.  The book is a preview into the cars of the future as well as a look into how the regulatory process really works in Washington.  President Obama commended her achievements in a letter stating, “Under your tireless leadership, we have realized significant environmental achievements in the transportation sector, from making diesel fuels cleaner to finalizing the most aggressive fuel economy standards for cars and trucks out to model year 2025.”  She is truly a force to be reckoned with.  Pre-order the book on Amazon today and read other reviews of Driving the Future on Margo Oge’s website here.
