Volkswagen Cheats the World
Every time I think I’m beyond surprise at what complete jerks large corporations can be, something comes along like the latest from Volkswagen. In case you’ve been on a camping trip and haven’t heard the news, the CEO of Volkswagen has admitted that VW has for years been installing software on their diesel-powered cars designed specifically to cheat emissions testing. Customers who bought cars thinking they were buying the latest in safety for the environment and fuel efficiency were getting neither.
This short video from the Washington Post sums the whole thing up in stunning detail.
Update: The CEO of VW has resigned. Who knew I wielded such power?
