This whole "scandal" thing is really screwing with my worldview/life plans.
However, even if climate change isn't real, I'm going to continue to live as if it was. Why? Because I believe that people should either have a positive impact on the environment or none at all... whenever possible.
Just because our cars' CO2 emissions may or may not be causing the Earth's temperature to rise is not the only reasons we should be concerned about the environment. [That sentence makes a lot more sense in my head than it does when read outloud.]
We still have lots of things to worry about environmentally/economically/socio-politically speaking, e.g. peak oil, peak water, mass extinction, and the violent global robot revolution (fyi, robots are the new zombies).
