VW is merely the first casualty in a war that’s about to go full hot. - And you can’t control C02 without controlling people.

VW – and soon, everyone else, inevitably – is under the gun over “emissions” that aren’t even pollutants.
Carbon dioxide.
This inert gas (look it up if you missed it in high school chemistry) doesn’t contribute to smog, cause acid rain, deplete the the ozone layer, irritate the lungs, or harm babies. Plants breathe it and by breathing it, produce the oxygen we need to breathe. If C02 is a “pollutant” then according to the same logic, so is water vapor (oy, don’t give them ideas).
