This Saturday, there will be over 4,000 demonstrations asking for CO2 to be rolled back to 350 PPM, where the glaciers might survive. It might be the biggest mass event in history. Pictures will be posted. You can find a local group via 350.org

I hope this doesn't bring a egr car weirdness again. EGR creates something other than carbon..even more dangerous. but it makes car makers look good, and silences idiots. The world is small, and it is emissions for the problems rate. I believe in their efforts..but not the way they do it. Even god starts smoky fires, and it burns once.
Look back to the 70s, most of that group was probably not even born. I know what drops emissions..they better let engines burn the fuel. no more games with cheap stuff, no more EGR, no more phony turbos and injections and lack of firing saving cheap engines..no more.
That is my ask..."Where is real engineering, not of the panic capitalist kind"?

Don't worry, bgd. Electric cars are the future, and they don't have fuel injection, EGR, or inline fours. With direct-drive hub motors, you could have an AWD driveline with four moving parts. What could be simpler?
