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 submitted cleantechnica.com but I just got "Thanks for submitting a site!" in response. I think you have to install a browser plug-in or something.
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?
