Diesels have always been green, just look at the color of the pump handle!

Media is also green, like in that article.

They have been pushing electric cars for years. Journalists running on emotion with little or no common sense can't seem to grasp that a battery just doesn't store energy as easily and compact like a tank of petroleum does.

It takes a quart of diesel weighing 2 pounds to run 10 miles to the store and back to haul 100 pounds of groceries home in the TDI. Now take 300 pounds of batteries plus running the electric meter half the night to do the same job.

The green emotional crowd will never be happy no matter how clean the diesels are.
