There is No Safe Level of exposure to the air pollution. Now we have the Lithium Technology to address this problem. All we need is a political will to do it. All we need is that you vote for it with your wallets and credit cards; and stop buying all that cancer hazard polluting rubbish.
One Atmosphere is a film by Simon Birkett, Founder and Director of Clean Air London, about the most important lessons learned from 10 years of campaigning. Nothing is lost before we lose it. His facts and numbers are mind boggling and he is the must follow for all concerned.
BBC has produced the great documentary presenting very graphically the depth of deception by auto-makers. Volkswagen DieselGate fallout has very far reaching complications: it is not only NOx, but CO2 as well; and it is not only Volkswagen. And do you know that EU has just doubled the limits for cancer hazard diesel emissions and has postponed their implementation? They do not like you to know it, so you can find everything on the links below to make you own judgement. Sales of Electric Cars has sky rocketed in Germany in October. It is quite stupid in the end to pay yourself to poison your kids with cancer hazard pollution every day. All we have to do is just stop paying for all those lies and stop buying all that rubbish. Now we have the solution - Lithium Technology is already here.

DieselGate: Germany Investigates Diesel Emissions Manipulation Beyond Volkswagen In More Than 50 Models.
"As we have discussed it here before, this DieselGate is only the tip of an iceberg and we have a full blown AutoGate. The ugly truth is that all costs accounted ICE cars are already more expensive than Electric Cars. And how will you account for human lives? Just stop buying that rubbish, it is quite stupid to pay yourself to poison your kids with cancer hazard pollution after all. Read more."
AutoGate: It's Not Only NOx, But CO2 As Well. It's Not Only Diesel, But Petrol As Well And It Is Not Only Volkswagen.
I have been discussing this subject for quite a while here and was even censored by Twitter, which I take personally as a compliment. A lot of information is already available on the web about all these touchy subjects and just waiting for mass media to pick it up. It is impossible to swipe it under the rug any more.
In 2012 WHO has reported about the Diesel Pollution As Cancer Risk, last week EU governments have pushed to DOUBLE toxic cancer hazard diesel emissions limits and postpone their implementation. All North American readers should watch Europe closely now. Which shoe will drop next? It is all there on the links below with names.
Latest news from Volkswagen has just moved us from DieselGate to a full blown AutoGate: It is not only NOx cancer hazard diesel emissions, but CO2 as well, it is not only Diesel, but Petrol as well and it is not only Volkswagen … Just wait for the new revelations to come and watch how Electric Cars are taking over in the largest auto market in the world in China first and then spread like a wild fire all over the world. Who will benefit and who will fade into oblivion? You can make your own decisions with the facts on the links below.
Volkswagen DieselGate Fallout: VW Emissions Scandal - US Regulators Find More Cars With Cheat Tests.
There is no surprise here, unfortunately. I guess, that nobody can really comply with emissions standards under the real test drive conditions. As we have discussed before:
"Joe Lowry shares with us today another brilliant article about the state of Lithium Supply and Demand in the days when, finally ALL Auto-makers know that they cannot meet standards limiting toxic cancer hazard emissions. The ICE based technology just has reached its thermodynamic limits. Auto-makers not only know it, but they have admitted it in Europe this week in the most disgusting fashion by lobbying their dirty friends among politicians to DOUBLE toxic cancer hazard emissions from Diesel Cars and to delay their implementation.
Electric Cars have reached The Point Of No Return. How many people will we save before The Silicon Valley economics will make all cars electric is up to all of us now. We need cheaper and better electric cars, we need mass market for EVs. We need volume. Where the lithium will be coming from to make it possible? Joe Lowry has his insider knowledge about it. We are just making it happen at International Lithium with our strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium $1.7 Billion market cap giant from China.
The future is electric and if you would like to know more this weekend, you can find links below and Joe will be your guide in his "Opaque Kingdom of Lithium". Joe Lowry estimates 88% increase in lithium demand in 5 years and "The Industry is approaching a full blown shortage situation" - according to him. Stay tuned as I will cut out a few tracks this weekend and maybe even some serious staff will be on our AC/DC digital waves soon. Read more." BBC article is here.

"Exhaust from diesel engines contributes to air pollution and is a cancer hazard to humans," said Dr. Kurt Straif. Forbes.
EU governments have demonstrated today one more time that corruption is without borders and party limits. It is the very bad decision and totally diminish our politicians, who has lost today any credibility, to the status of corporate puppets on payroll. The only good news is that this act of treason on part of politicians against the public health just demonstrates that ICE technology just can't deliver any more, it has reached its limitations. Fossils are not only among fuels. Now you all will be sold even more polluting rubbish and our streets will be even more dangerous filled with cancer hazard toxic emissions. Your hard earned money will go to support those dirty politicians killing your kids. Just stop buying it and spread the word. Donate your RT.
"London smog: 'We spend billions per year on tests in a lab. Useless … We want to clean up the environment, not the labs' (Photo: stu mayhem)" - euobserver.
No surprises, here for me unfortunately. Peter Teffer reports straight from the heart of "EU Capital" in Brussels:
"Volkswagen is not the only car company that used illegal devices to cheat emissions tests, said Axel Friedrich, a German emissions testing expert who is a co-founder of the NGO that notified US authorities something was wrong with VW's test results."You will see tomorrow night on German television the next case", Friedrich said on Wednesday (21 October) in the European Parliament."It's not only diesel, it's also gasoline. The whole system is corrupt", he added."
WHO: DieselGate Is A Cancer Problem - Auto Industry Calls "Not To Jeopardise Diesel As One Of Its Key Pillars."
Dear Mr Erik Jonnaert, Secretary General of UN, sorry … of ACEA (European Automobile Manufacturers' Association), please be careful, couple of NRs like this one and those "pillars" can hit you on the head very hard! "Clean Diesel" Dream is dead, unfortunately with thousands of people killed by it. It is time to move on, not just to pretend that autos are changing, but embrace that change for real. I love all those articles now how Volkswagen moves so fast into electric cars space. I would like to believe it, but why are they signing this NR asking for delay in emissions standards implementation and lobbying in EU for The Toxic Emissions Limits to be INCREASED? On behalf of all what is left of the brain-healthy population, I tell you that we will not buy all that killing us last century oil thirsty rubbish any more. My dear girls and boys, please, do not let me down here and stay for a bit to find out why I am breaking into this smoking party here.
I can understand Auto-makers very well: they have invested Billions in the "Clean Diesel" scam and related technology. Can you imaging for them to admit now that all those plants, equipment, all that already produced cancer hazard spitting rubbish is a total waste? They do not care about you or your kids for real: just read the News Release from ACEA below. But shareholders are the different story: they will tear them apart. This is where the real worry comes and this is where is your power. All that rubbish has to be sold to somebody. I do hope that not to you any more. Just do this one thing: do not buy it - the rest we will do for you and your kids, there is the solution.
Mass media is very slow to react to this scandal, but how could they? Auto sector must be one of the largest advertisers for the mass media. There are reports that the first thing Volkswagen did was, no not EV announcements there ones came later, but their Ad Agency has threatened to pull out all advertisement from the papers reporting on Volkswagen scandal. Advertisement is going on-line now where "They" are censoring you once you start talking about the real things. By the way, I cannot really read that article on the link above on Forbes, I found it in another place and the WHO report is below for your kind attention.
So girls and boys it is all up to us. Will you allow "Them" just to take over your iPhoneor Twitter account or can they mess up with all your life? That report from WHO "Diesel Engine Exhaust Carcinogenic" is … from 2012! All we have to do now is just not to allow this BS happen around us any more, technology is here to help us. Educate yourself and help to educate others. Donate your RT, do not suffer in silence. Everybody who is still talking about more pollution coming from Electric Cars, please, do not bother - enjoy the fumes, apparently brain damage from the air pollution is the very serious issue as well now.

DieselGate: Auto Industry Calls For More Time To Properly Poison Our Kids With Increased Deadly Emissions.
After all sorry, apologies and our dreams about Good Uncles all come together and push for clean air for all of us we have the answer from European Automobile Manufacturers' Association to all my questions yesterday. It begins, European Auto Industry is lobbying not for electric cars, but for more time to poison us all properly with increased levels of toxic emissions. Have you heard about ENRON? Yes, these guys are even smarter: they are auditing their emissions themselves and paying money to EU in order not to have a proper limits on toxic emissions which are carcinogenic and your kids are breathing it. Can somebody tell ACEA about Electric Cars, please? Will we blow our chance to push them to come Clean again?
“We are fully aligned with the need to better measure the emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from diesel cars and vans under normal driving conditions,” stated Erik Jonnaert, ACEA Secretary General. “However, it is important to proceed in a way which allows manufacturers to plan and implement the necessary changes, without jeopardising the role of diesel as one of the key pillars for fulfilling future CO2 targets.”
Translation: "Nobody In Auto Industry Can Meet The Toxic Emissions Standards Even After We Have Spent Millions To Lobby All Possible Politicians In Order Not To Make It."
ACEA represents the 15 Europe-based car, van, truck and bus manufacturers: BMW Group, DAF Trucks, Daimler, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Ford of Europe, Hyundai Motor Europe, IVECO, Jaguar Land Rover, Opel Group, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Renault Group, Toyota Motor Europe, Volkswagen Group, Volvo Cars, Volvo Group.
Few links for Mr Erik Jonnaert and other Good Uncles in the boardrooms. RT, please, maybe they do not know it, maybe some of them can still read and will think about their own grandchildren.
