The net result is European cities polluted with (if you believe the UN WHO’s Cancer Research Institute) provenly carcinogenic diesel fuel residues, a loss-making European refining industry, and massive numbers of recently-built, recently-purchased diesel cars in national car fleets of most major EU states. Telling the public they are breathing and swallowing carcinogens “to save the climate”, and-or “reduce their dependence on Putin’s oil exports”, is unlikely to be voter-friendly, but we can count on our ruling elite to try this number ­ as they did in France, in late March 2014.
