Applaud Strict Standards for Diesel Car Emissions

Target: Giovanni La Via, European Parliament

Goal: Applaud the European Parliament for rejecting loose regulations of car emission testing.

The European Parliament’s environment committee has rejected newly drafted rules that would allow cars to release diesel emissions that are twice the legal limit. The decision is an important step towards environmental progress for European countries.

Issues with car emission testing have recently been publicized and debated. Car companies have been found to evade emission requirements in order to gain profit. It is beneficial for some countries to support these companies because it can help establish a strong car industry and increase the national economy. The proposal to allow increased diesel emissions has been presented and supported by countries that wish to preserve their economy through less-regulated car industries. This would increase air pollution levels and further the current controversy surrounding car emissions. Fortunately, the European Parliament’s environment committee has opposed the proposal. The committee is urging for tougher regulation and fighting for changes to the current draft.

There are many alternative and accurate emission testing technologies available throughout the world. This technology must be used to ensure that the car industry is well-regulated and held to proper environmental standards. By rejecting loose regulations, the European Parliament is following through on plans to preserve the environment and raise awareness about car pollutions.

Applaud the European Parliament for rejecting the proposal and urging proper regulation of diesel emissions.


Dear Mr. La Via,

The decision to reject loose regulations of car diesel emissions is an important step for environmental progress. We applaud the European Parliament for making this public statement against compromising environmental standards.

Countries with strong car industries are likely to push for fewer regulations on emission testing in order to preserve their market. However, the environment should currently be the highest priority for all countries. Preservation and health concerns are not the only reasons that environmental protection is crucial. The diminishing environment will also have harmful consequences for economics and business. Companies must start acknowledging environmental issues as a problem that must be solved rather than simply frustrating regulations to avoid.

The ever-increasing risks of environmental harm must be considered collectively and from multiple perspectives, whether economic, natural, or political. We applaud the European Parliament for taking a stand against countries that wish to promote their economy over the preservation of the global environment.
