Clearly the EPA and the other zealots know basically f*ck all about physics.


You can add nearly every politician, worldwide, to that list.

Dieselgate: an analysis of VW's cheating firmware
Daniel Lange and Felix "tmbinc" Domke bought some of Volkswagen's cheating Engine Control Units on Ebay and extracted and decompiled the software in them to learn exactly how the cheating took place.

Their presentation at the thirty-second Chaos Communications Congress presents their findings, which include a detailed analysis of the software trickery used to detect when the car was being tested by a regulator to change the car's emissions characteristics.

They also reveal that they've discovered other cars that use VW's techniques to cheat on tests.

65 minutes
Daniel (first half) has entertaining comments on the car markets and the inner workings of auto companies.

This cheating crap is too much to take. Only in America and by default in poodle Canada are diesel engines subject to such draconian NOx regulations. In the EU, Australia, Japan and the rest of the freaking world diesel models are available from basically all the main manufacturers (Ford, GM, Mazda, etc.). The lawyer riff raff at the EPA must be closet global warming deniers, since they clearly support more CO2 emissions just to reduce NOx emissions. BTW, the EPA does not apply the same NOx standards to truck diesels so all of its air quality effort is utter BS.

Without the diesel option, VW is an also ran company. There is nothing special about their cars.
