Volkswagen DieselGate Fallout: EU Commission Proposes To Bring Carmakers Into Line After Diesel Gate.



Let's see now how our "servants of the people" in EU will withstand the pressure of millions being spent on lobbying by Auto Industry.



Volkswagen DieselGate Fallout: 95% Of Diesel Cars Pump Out Illegal Levels Of Killer Toxins.



Mail Online.



   "Daily Mail is putting the ducks in the row with deadly truth about DieselGate and Volkswagen Fallout: 95% of "Clean Diesel" cars pump out illegal levels of killer toxin. Yes, it is the huge scandal and Daily Mail is positioned greatly to bring this ugly deadly truth finally to the masses breathing all this cancer hazard pollution. The solution is here, some people just prefer you not to think about it.
    IsideEv reports about undeniable trend with sales of Electric Cars. We are going exponentially from very small base and already have "Lithium Market Upheaval" in China. Slowly but surely we are getting there. Recent news about police raids at Renault are not helping ICE Age crowd to spin its "Clean Diesel" any more. Volkswagen, hopefully, made it very apparent: it is quite stupid after all to pay yourself to poison you very own kids with cancer hazard polluting "Clean Diesel" ICE Age rubbish. All we need now is better and cheaper electric cars and they are finally coming with GM Bolt and Tesla Model 3.

Lithium Race: Tesla Model S Leads Top Selling Electric Cars in U.S. 2015.




Market Watch.

  
  "Market Watch has provided us with this brilliant illustration of the trend in Electric cars in 2015 in U.S. Despite being the most expensive one, Tesla Model S is outselling with a very big margin Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt by 49% and 67% respectively. It proves my personal observations: we have seen nothing yet in this Energy rEVolution: electric cars share is 0.7% in U.S. of total car sales! People are buying quality, Tesla Model S is providing such quality in the luxury sector and outselling BMW 7 and Audi 8 in Europe already and is taking on Mercedes S! Now we need quality electric cars for the mass market and GM Bolt is a great electric car to start it. Tesla Model 3 will make this market to happen for real and First EV Price Wars will drive the EV prices down, hopefully, for all of us to benefit. Despite total insignificance of electric cars in market terms now, lithium battery consumption of lithium is already around 40%. Once we will start buying all electric cars, which will be better than "Clean Diesel" or 'Not-So-Dirty" Petrol and with the same or even cheaper price, we will have the Lithium Market Upheaval Joe Lowry is writing about in China all over the world. We are making the dramatic shift from the remote control with two batteries, to mobile devices with 4-10 equivalent and now we are moving to over 7,000 lithium batteries equivalent like in Tesla Model S. Below you can find my chronicles of the Energy rEVolution and Joe Lowry latest information from "Opaque Lithium Kingdom."  Read more."


Volkswagen DieselGate Fallout: The Dirty Truth About ‘Clean Diesel’.



New York Times.


  "I do hope that you have recharged your batteries and even managed to start detoxing after the festivities. 2016 is knocking impatiently on the door with the global sell-off in the markets: China has the worse ever duties trading start with circuit breakers applied today and Saudi Arabia is ready to blow out in the developing crisis of epic proportions. 
  Time is to remind ourselves that all "Democracy Wars" are based on our dependence on Oil and now we have the Solution: Lithium Technology is here and Electric Cars are already better than the one-hundred-years-old ICE cancer hazard polluting rubbish. We just need to make them cheaper and better. While we are working on it, please, find links below for your own research. Saudi Arabia, Russia, Ukraine, China can be perceived as something quite afar and not an immediate danger, more information on how your own car is slowly killing your own kids, maybe, can do the trick. New York Times article will put you research into the right direction today. All the links are still there, as, very unfortunately, all "Clean Diesel" cars on our streets and "Not-So-Dirty Petrol" ones. Read more."


DieselGate Volkswagen Fallout: Car Pollution Scandal - EU Parliament To Set Up Enquiry On Green Initiative.


  



   "There is some faith left in the humanity after all. People are smart and the best of us can even sustain intensive GMO and Reality TV brain damaging attacks. The best are moving forward very fast now into the future into the post carbon economy. You are all invited to join. Lithium Technology is here to make it all happen. No fighting or even confrontation is required, just vote with your wallet and credit cards: stop buying 100 years old ICE Diesel and Petrol powered technology which is literally poisoning to death with cancer hazard emissions your very own children. Please, spread the world and links below are for your own research. Read more."


BBC Video: How Volkswagen Fooled The World With A Scam To Rig Pollution Tests And They Do It Again.

       


    


  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:



  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.


DieselGate And Corruption: EU Governments Double And Delay Air Pollution Limits For Diesel Cars.


    

Erik Jonnaert, ACEA Secretary General


"Exhaust from diesel engines contributes to air pollution and is a cancer hazard to humans," said DrKurt 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.



Volkswagen, DieselGate And Now AutoGate: Car Emissions Testing - "The Whole System Is Corrupt"




"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. Read more."




The Statistics About Diesel Are Crystal Clear. It’s Deadly … Automakers Asking About 70% Emissions Increase.

Transport and Environment:

Commission proposes to bring carmakers into line after diesel gate.

"The European Commission today published a proposal to improve the system for national authorities approving cars to be sold in all 28 EU member states. Sustainable transport group Transport & Environment (T&E) welcomes the Commission’s constructive and timely attempt to bring into line carmakers who, for decades, have actively undermined the approval system circumventing regulation and damaging public health, safety and the climate.
While the proposal is effective in ensuring testing services operate independently (with penalties for misconduct), its proposals to ensure National Type Approval Authorities are robust and independent are inadequate. These authorities failed to catch Volkswagen cheating, allowed tests to be systematically manipulated, and issued approvals for cars in breach of the rules. The absence of sanctions on compromised national authorities and the ability of carmakers to continue “shopping” around authorities for the best deal are clear omissions from the proposal.

Greg Archer, clean vehicles director of T&E, said: “This good proposal addresses many flaws in the current car testing system but lacks teeth. The principal reason why Volkswagen managed to get away with cheating in Europe was the lack of independence of national authorities, which were compromised by their cosy relationship with carmakers. Without the threat of future EU sanctions, it will be mission impossible to break the strong bond between national regulators and their carmakers that has protected the industry but at the cost of higher emissions.”

T&E welcomes steps to strengthen market surveillance by EU countries such as re-tests of cars already on the road and the Commission’s ability to do spot-checks, recall cars and fine carmakers for selling cars that do not meet standards on the road. However, we stress the need to set a clear target for the number of cars on the road that have to be checked (for example, one in three new models), thus removing the current reluctance of national authorities to test cars once they leave the showroom. Real-world driving emissions tests, recently introduced, must be used for future checks.


On 28 October, Italy, the UK, Germany, France and Spain, which all have large car manufacturing industries, successfully lobbied in favour of weaker NOx limits for diesel cars. Similar opposition is to be expected with this proposal."
