Climate change propaganda is a blueprint for many phony, unscientific campaigns for change.
The mission to get rid of the most efficient engine ever built begins where diesel began, in Germany. Diesel use is high in Europe, not so much in North America.
This report interviews doctors who say that the relationship between diesel particulate NO2 emissions and premature death is correlative, not causal. Correlation is not causation.
None of this matters, of course, because the misinformation is psychic driven and the fraud well backed by media, all in an effort to switch to electric cars.
While I am not against the switch to electric, the way it’s done is deceptive and fraudulent.
Lying is the only way to effect change, quickly.
Is this that much different than handing over billions every few years for little return?

Old story but good one on what a junk mortgage bond is.
In January 2010, reporters from Planet Money bought a toxic asset—you know, the things that blew up wall street banks, sank the economy and brought the global financial system to a halt—one of those. And “Toxie” turned out to be an encyclopedia of the financial crisis.

BOOK A NIGHT at LAX’s Residence Inn and you may be fortunate enough to meet an employee named Wally. His gig is relatively pedestrian—bring you room service, navigate around the hotel’s clientele in the lobby and halls—but Wally’s life is far more difficult than it seems. If you put a tray out in front of your door, for instance, he can’t get to you. If a cart is blocking the hall, he can’t push it out of the way. But fortunately for Wally, whenever he gets into a spot of trouble, he can call out for help.
