German car company Audi has announced that it has successfully created a carbon-neutral diesel fuel using water, air and energy from the sun – and to prove it they asked a German government official to fill her car up with the stuff and drive to work.

It has led them to look to wind and solar at scales that environmentalists in America can only dream of. And guess what? It hasn’t killed jobs. The results have been just the opposite.
