“Dirty Money.” No, not Dirty, Sexy Money”; the ABC prime time drama that ran from 2006-2009. Ain’t nothin’ sexy about these polluted profits!
Netflix has a new series, Dirty Money, and its first episode, “Hard NOx” from Director Alex Gibney, is disturbing. Surely you’ve heard something about Volkswagen, the world’s biggest automaker, embroiled in an ever-expanding Dieselgate crisis. But, as bad as it is, it’s actually far worse than many suspected.
There is a silver lining in the clouds. Countries and cities across the world are planning to ban diesel (and gas) cars. And just recently, according to CNN, “Germany’s top court has paved the way for [its] major cities to ban diesel vehicles. … The decision could fuel efforts to implement similar restrictions across Europe.” Sure enough, following that news, reports surfaced that “Rome, one of Europe’s most traffic-clogged cities… plans to ban diesel cars from the centre by 2024.”
