Apparently VW has opposed regulation requiring stricter emissions, so they are now starting a smear campaign against VW.


Greepeace ad^

Ironic that GP decided to rail against one of the greenest automakers out there, but if they started doing things that made sense, they wouldn't be activsts, now would they?

:p :lol:

Already on page 3 or so ... ;)

btw. here is an interesting thing to know about Greenpiss:

"After six years as one of five directors of Greenpeace International, I observed that none of my fellow directors had any formal science education. They were either political activists or environmental entrepreneurs. Ultimately, a trend toward abandoning scientific objectivity in favor of political agendas forced me to leave Greenpeace in 1986. The breaking point was a Greenpeace decision to support a world-wide ban on chlorine. Science shows that adding chlorine to drinking water was the biggest advance in the history of public health, virtually eradicating water-borne diseases such as cholera. And the majority of our pharmaceuticals are based on chlorine chemistry. Simply put, chlorine is essential for our health. My former colleagues ignored science and supported the ban, forcing my departure. Despite science concluding no known health risks – and ample benefits – from chlorine in drinking water, Greenpeace and other environmental groups have opposed its use for more than 20 years."
-- Patrick Moore.

edit: Anyone else noticed that this is probably just some Brits (Greenpeace UK) hating on German cars?

Tons of companies oppose government-mandated emissions standards...but most of them favor efficiency gains, usually as dictated by the free market and customer choice. With fuel at $6-$10/USG in Europe, I don't think they need much more incentive to choose reasonably efficient cars. They've been doing it for decades.

(if anything, VW is among the leaders in pioneering direct injection, diesel tech, and now hybrids. STFU, Greenpeace.)
