Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Greg asks: Hey Eric, check this out! Not that I think CO2 is bad at all (ridiculous) but look at this article….
My reply: I did. I also watched a very interesting video investigation which revealed the fatuity of assertions about diesel “emissions” – assertions about their enormity when in fact the actual emissions are almost undetectable by instruments and substantially less than (for example) those “emitted” by a home gas range used for cooking. Watch it now:
The whole thing is a gigantic con – but a necessary one (from a certain point of view) because diesels posed a huge threat to the EV Agenda. If people were able to buy a 60-plus MPG diesel-powered car for $22k that had a range of 700 miles and took 5 minutes to refuel and was “clean” by any reasonable standard – why on earth would anyone spend $35,000-up to buy an EV that goes a fourth the distance, takes hours to recharge and isn’t any better “for the environment.”?
To ask this question is to answer it – and the answer isn’t one the powers that be like.
Hence, the PR campaign against diesels and the vicious persecution of VW’s “cheating” on government certification tests.
