VW really screwed up. 11 million vehicles spewing up to 40 times the allowable limit of pollutants into the air. This is air that we share: you, me our parents and our kids. VW intentionally deceived us in the name of profits and I believe it could easily happen again. We have 15 days to tell our candidates that we want a federal policy to promote the transition to clean, sustainable vehicles. If you agree, please copy and paste the letter below to your MP candidate and party leader of choice. I also encourage you to share with your friends and family so they may do the same. Social media is encouraged. This is a serious issue and right now, we have the power to influence policy, get leaders debating the issue, and protect our country from a similar catastrophe in the future. Thanks so much.
