Re: “AG Rutledge says Arkansas will join multistate investigation into VW emission software scandal

I was initially not keen on the idea of people receiving compensation for a problem that doesn't actually sound like it affects their car's performance. Was reading some actual data on what VW did though and its the environmental impact that is shocking. The NOx gases you might have heard about actually have a terrible effect on people's health, read about it here at the ICCT.

When I realised we weren't talking about people getting less miles out of their tank, but about premature deaths across our communities, my perspective changed. When you add to that JUST HOW BADLY they understated their vehicles NOx emissions (see graphic here), I think VW deserve everything they get.

Interested to hear what you guys think about this.
