I think that VW is good at mass market vehicles, bringing costs down and profits up. If I were a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately shareholder, I'd say that VW should not create an electric revolution - it will lose money for a bit. As a long-term-hold-stock shareholder, I'd say 'VW - GET TO IT ALREADY!'

But I'll believe it when I see it.

In THEORY there is no difference between Theory and Practice

I installed the extension to briefly test it out. Cleantechnica isn't in the DB, maybe because it isn't considered a news source. I submitted the site anyhow.

It shows Fox News, Media Matters, and The Daily Wire as "green", meaning it passes their criteria for responsible news reporting and commentary. I wonder which sites get ratings other than green?

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. -H.L Mencken.
