"Ten Monkeys and a Beetle: Inside VW’s Campaign for ‘Clean Diesel’"

Read the New York Times story by Jack Ewing that exposed the new “monkeygate” scandal at VW HERE.

“Images of humans being exposed to gas in airtight chambers raised uncomfortable associations with Germany’s Nazi past.”  

- New York Times, January 30th, 2018

The New York Times has a follow up story on monkeygate in which they reveal that the same VW-funded group that tested diesel exposure on monkeys also tested Nitrogen Dioxide exposure on humans.

“VW was convicted, first, of participating in a conspiracy to defraud the United States and its U.S. customers and to violate the Clean Air Act by lying and misleading the EPA and U.S. customers about whether certain VW, Audi and Porsche branded diesel vehicles complied with U.S. emissions standards. Moreover, the company used cheating software to circumvent the U.S. testing process, and concealed material facts about its cheating from U.S. regulators. Second, VW was convicted of obstruction of justice for destroying documents related to the scheme. And third, VW was convicted of importing these cars into the United States by means of false statements about the vehicles’ compliance with emissions limits.”
