Corporate wrongdoing comes in many forms. What Volkswagen did by cheating on smog-pollution tests is a crime against us all -- those who rely on clean air to breathe today and future generations who deserve a livable planet.
Volkswagen's deception allowed the greenhouse gas equivalent of at least 32.2 million tons of extra carbon pollution to be released into the atmosphere, roughly the same as the emissions of 6.8 million cars.
Volkswagen knew what it was doing and did it anyway. The punishment for this kind of violation of public trust has to match the magnitude the impacts will have on people, the environment and our climate.
