Sabine Hossenfelder takes on "the recent Toyota emissions scandal," which she refers to as the "tip of the iceberg."

She begins with some observations on "the tension between words -- 'lip confessions'"-- and the "confessions that get written into law." 

Hossenfelder explores three examples from Japan, the EU, and the USA." Japan "manipulated the results of emissions tests, again while "in Europe, lawmakers (learned) that their regulations on car emissions have had absolutely no effect." And here, in the United States, "scientists urge the Biden administration to reconsider the export of liquified natural gas."
