recent conversation with 4 Germans one of whom was a parts manufacturer went along those lines and they stated the dirty diesel problem had tarnished the German name. They were not happy bunnies :(

The Suit:What would you consider to be your greatest weakness?

Me: Honesty.

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Me: I don't give a f**k what you think.

I think per head of capita Australia is by far the most polluting country - open cast mines etc.....

When you go there they're all green environmental hippies - which is a nice way to be if you can afford it, which of course they can because they're all making a fortune driving trucks in the mines :?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Midgley_Jr.

In the world of environmental vandals, Dr Thomas Midgley has more to answer for than most, he was responsible for Lead in petrol and CFCs.
He contracted polio and died when a pulley system he invented for lifting himself out of bed failed and strangled him.
