This unprecedented court decision has diesel motorists in other parts of the EU eyeing their vehicles askance. In fact, the diesel-car market share in Britain alone has dropped from 45% to 33% in just these few short months.

Our metaphorical ark, in this case, is a bright blue Hyundai Tucson, touring the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in early July of this year.
