"Dieselgate" is the term being used to describe the most recent news from the automotive sector of the business world these days.  As KSFR’s been reporting, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has accused Volkswagen of installing software on certain diesel fuel engine cars to circumvent federal emission standards.   The EPA says as a result, almost half a million U.S. autos may have emitted thousand tons of nitrogen oxides as a result of the devices. The emissions can have serious health effects, especially for children, the elderly and those who suffer from respiratory problems.
