The Truth Will Set You Free .....
Is it right to assign blame to Volkswagen for not meeting unrealistic emissions goals on its diesel engines, after-all what goes in must come out whatever one does, perhaps they should not have deceived the authorities and their customers, but just who is too blame is debatable.
I was once an automotive engine tuner and one can only tune an engine to specifications without causing damage to the engine components at variable speeds without losing power.
What government official put the exhaust analyzer into the VW tailpipe and gave the all clear?
I also worked 17-years in the coal export industry as a plant operator driving bulldozers, ship-loaders, en-loaders, bobcats, gantry cranes, forklifts, mobile cranes, backhoes etc.
The coal company was very good to me and I can tell people that coal-fired power stations and steel-mill will be around for a longtime to come, because nothing can replace it, not even solar panels that deteriorate after 10-years rendering them worthless on rooftops.
