O/T - California\'s new tougher emissions rules

I was reading a story about California's state assembly passing legislation for tougher emissions.

"The legislation, AB1493, would force automakers to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from their light trucks and cars beginning in 2009."

My questions are: Are they trying to kill gasoline/diesel engines? Aren't the only by products of a theoretically 100% effecient combustion carbon dioxide and water?

My guess is that there are a lot of greenies who would like nothing better than to get rid of internal combustion engines. At least until they suffered the consequences of their stupidity. And there is a pretty good concentration of them in Granola Land.
