Lawyers are bad for the environment

They're saying that Volkswagen's gaming of the system will cost more than the British Petroleum oil-spill in the Gulf.

Volkswagen let off a few more chemicals than they should have; but those chemicals have been linked to - very little environmental damage, over what a rival vehicle might have let off. BP's oil-spill on the other hand was a horrific disaster.

If Volkswagen's corner-cutting results in more economic Fail than BP's did: that is the result of bad law, not of bad environmental practice. It strikes me that our real pollutant here is American law. I suggest mulching lawyers.
