SIR – The ‘car-emissions’ furore which is sweeping across the media world in such a manner as to convince us the planet, as we know it, is doomed is sure to hang about like smog for at least another while.

The tree-hugging planet-savers are in their element currently, because for reasons best known to themselves, they feel they are big winners because car companies have fiddled the amounts of the gunky stuff coming out of our car exhausts. I wonder have those holier-than-the-Pope clean motorists checked their own smoky pipes lately. 

Of course not. Because this carry-on is only about paying less tax on exhaust fumes, and nothing else.

But this tiny issue keeps the heroes of the universe and their man-made global- warming nonsense in the news for another while as they try to convince us all that we are bad people for not giving a rat’s arse about their personal lazy life’s devotion to a fantasy of global destruction, caused by we simply being alive.

So bloody what about cars spewing X amount of gunk into the atmosphere,when seven million cattle in one year are farting far more dodgy stuff over Ireland, all at the same time? Life will go on and not one of us, motorist or humanitarian cyclist, will suffer because a car firm has broken a rule.
