Elon Musk: Volkswagen’s Diesel Scandal Is “Obviously Bad,” But Bigger Issue Is Carbon Dioxide Emissions
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has chimed in on the Volkswagen diesel scandal.
While in Berlin, Musk spoke to an audience at a seminar organized by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
According to Automotive News, Musk stated that VW cheating on diesel emissions tests is “obviously bad,” but he suggested that there are other more pressing issues that we should be focused on:
“It’s very important that we take action today to recognize that we are making a very significant change to the chemical constituency of the atmosphere and the oceans. It’s very important that we do something.”
According to Musk, Germany does “really great” with sustainable power generation, but isn’t so good with sustainable power consumption.
“Transport is still very much petrol and diesel. So hopefully that’s something that will change.”
Obvciously, Musk is implying that transport should change to electric.
