The 40 times figure applies to a single model year of a single Volkswagen under certain driving conditions. Another vehicle under different conditions was just nine times higher.
And both figures relate to a standard that the EPA just happened to pick.
And the EPA is far from a disinterested party.
Like any health agency, it routinely justifies its budget by exaggerating health problems.
You know, like that Centers for Disease Control and Prevention prediction last year of as many as 1.5 million Ebola cases, when ultimately 13,000 existed.
So the EPA, the notorious California Air Resources Board and a cottage industry of grant-hungry scientists keep teasing data in a desperate effort to find some sort of statistically significant adverse health effect from ever-lower levels of any man-made pollutant.
