It didn’t take long for this BS to come out

A true scientist has estimated the US deaths (16-94) from the VW cheating. Seth Borenstein, AP Science Writer reports: AP analysis: Dozens of deaths likely from VW pollution dodge

Volkswagen‘s pollution-control chicanery has not just been victimless tinkering, killing between five and 20 people in the United States annually in recent years, according to an Associated Press statistical and computer analysis.

The software that the company admitted using to get around government emissions limits allowed VWs to spew enough pollution to cause somewhere between 16 and 94 deaths over seven years, with the annual count increasing more recently as more of the diesels were on the road. The total cost has been well over $100 million.

The analysis, based on an analysis by Carnegie Mellon professor Peter Adams, uses EPA estimates to come up with the number of deaths.  Did they count any of the deaths?  Of course not.  Why should they when they have this method of picking out the cause of death of 0.000004% of the population each year.  You might think you’d be embarrassed to write or be associated with such scientific BS as this, but apparently Borenstein and Adams are not.

My analysis says that there have been 0 deaths associated with this cheating because there have been that number of deaths with diagnosed cause of excess NOx emissions.

This one is definitely organic plant food.

  1. I saw this article on the Yahoo!newsfeed yesterday. I had to call BS and direct them to the unethical EPA human testing that disproves the concept. It was interesting in that most of the commentary was in that same vein. It seems the public is not so gullible after all.

  2. ” The total cost has been well over $100 million.”

    $100 million is also a number without foundation.

  3. I googled ‘NOx hazard exaggerated’ and came up with an excellent article from your site.I tried it again and it had completely vanished. Are there spies at Google?!!
