VW on Wednesday agreed to plead guilty to three criminal charges and pay US$4.3 billion in civil and criminal fines for conspiracy and fraud in its emissions scandal.
That was in addition to US$17.5 billion paid to consumers...

But the US need more cash to finance certain war regions...
Chrysler was saved by Fiat and now they are on the Chopping block

When will people learn to stay out of the USA.

Good,

“We found 30 billion tonnes of carbon that nobody knew was there,” said Simon Lewis, co-lead author of the study and a professor at the University of Leeds. That is equivalent to three years of global CO2 emissions, or 20 years of US emissions.

Most peat - dense, dark-brown muck composed of decaying plants - is located in Canada, Scandinavia and Siberia, but the tropics hold large stores as well.

U.S. alleges Fiat Chrysler cheated on diesel engine emissions
'We have done nothing that is illegal … this is absolute nonsense,' CEO Sergio Marchionne says
CBC Posted: Jan 12, 2017 11:07 AM ET
The U.S. government is accusing Fiat Chrysler of violating the Clean Air Act on some of its diesel engines installed in about 104,000 vehicles.

The Environmental Protection Agency accused the company of installing and failing to disclose engine management software in 2014, 2015 and 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Ram 1500 trucks with 3.0-litre diesel engines sold in the United States.

Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne denied that the company was cheating.

"We have done nothing that is illegal," he said. "There was never any intent of creating conditions that were designed to defeat the testing process. This is absolute nonsense."

In a release, Fiat Chrysler responded by saying it is "disappointed" that the EPA issued the notice of violation. The automaker said it intends to work with the incoming administration to present its case "and resolve this matter fairly and equitably" and to prove to the regulator and its customers that its trucks meet environmental requirements.

"FCA US believes that its emission control systems meet the applicable requirements," the company said.

Fiat Chrysler also said it has no plans to discontinue selling 2016 U.S. diesel models.
