Dieselgate Researchers Target BMW and Mercedes

http://motherboard.vice.com/read/res...tm_source=mbfb

"A team of scientists led by chemist Axel Friedrich presented the results of a new emissions analysis earlier this week in Berlin. The data apparently demonstrates that Mercedes and BMW also manipulated vehicle emissions values in order to meet legal limits, just as Volkswagen admitted doing."

The article is light on details as to what BMW may have been doing to manipulate test results, but I'm sure we'll learn more as time goes on. It would appear that the plot thickens.

A liberal buddy felt the fudging on emissions was pretty close to murder. Imagine fooling with an arbitrary standard set by a bureaucrat....that's just outrageous!

Somebody said that he said and then they printed it in the paper. Researchers.

The whole thing had been debunked previously.

Well, we ARE killing the planet you know. I mean all the liberals (and Hollywood elite each with 6 houses all over the world) fly around on private jets telling us so....
