- Almost 67,000 polluting VW and Audi diesels returned so far
By Kathleen Pender - Wednesday Jan 18, 2017
Almost 67,000 of the roughly 470,000 Volkswagen and Audi 2-liter diesel models sold in the United States with emissions-cheating software have been returned to dealers for buybacks or lease terminations, an attorney for the automaker said at a hearing in federal court in San Francisco Wednesday.Under a consumer class-action settlement that will cost VW up to $10 billion, people who own or lease one of the 2-liter TDI models with a so-called defeat device can sell the car back to the manufacturer at the vehicle’s September 2015 trade-in value or terminate their lease without penalty and receive a cash restitution payment ranging from $2,634 to $9,852.U.S. District Court Judge Charles Breyer approved the consumer class action settlement, the largest in U.S. automotive history, on Oct. 25.At a status conference on the settlement Wednesday, Robert Giuffra, an attorney with Sullivan & Cromwell who represents VW, said that about 451,000 cars have been “registered” for the settlement, 383,000 claims have been filed and 160,000 buy-back appointments have been scheduled with dealers.Earlier this month, federal and state environmental regulators approved the first repair, but it only covers about 70,000 so-called generation 3 vehicles from model year 2015.

The friendly farmer from Babe is facing jail time — for a cause.
James Cromwell, a climate activist, was sentenced to one week in jail for his arrest during a protest at a New York power plant in 2015. Two other environmental activists, Pramilla Malick and Madeline Shaw, were also sentenced by a judge in Wawayanda, N.Y.
Cromwell helped stage a sit-in at a natural gas site run by Competitive Power Ventures. He and his fellow activists were charged with obstruction of traffic. Cromwell was sentenced to a jail sentence after he didn't pay an assigned fine — another form of protest.
“If we don’t stay together, nothing will change,” Cromwell told the Times-Herald Record. “Power to the people.” Read more...More about Climate Activism, World, and Climate Environment
