Some people in Europe are seeing reason for optimism in the revelations of the cheating Volkswagen scandal, as mentioned on Green Comet a month ago.
VW emissions scandal could end up being a boon if it pushes governments and industry to reassess diesel’s impact honestly and move away from it altogether.
People living in London, Paris and Barcelona know firsthand how smelly and polluted their cities have become because of the number of diesel vehicles driving around.
Volkswagen is not the only culprit here. Most diesel cars from other manufacturers, such as Ford, Renault, Nissan, Citroën, Mercedes Benz, and Fiat also fail thorough emission tests.
Some smart cars are diesel too, aren’t they?
