Automakers Secretly Seek 70% Increase in Pollutant

Think Volkswagen is the only car company whose products create more pollution than advertised? Think again. 

With actual road tests of car emissions coming, the largest car companies are privately lobbying for dramatic "leeway" in emissions of nitrogen oxide, one of the more dangerous pollutants. 

"The automakers, which include Volkswagen, General Motors, Daimler, BMW, Toyota, Renault, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Ford and Hyundai, are essentially conceding what outside groups have said for some time — that the industry cannot meet pollution regulations when cars are taken out of testing laboratories." 

And: “The industry shouldn’t be in a position to request anything, but still they are,” said François Cuenot, an air-quality officer at Transport and Environment. “It means they didn’t learn from the Volkswagen case.”
Under the new plan, cars in Europe would for the first time be tested on the road, using portable equipment, instead of in laboratories.

Great, more pollution in the air. Hopefully one day we'll be able to use hybrid or all electric cars (with better battery life that is) that plug into the grid and use CLEAN energy (nuclear preferably, not dirty coal and oil).
