    “How VW Paid $25 Billion for ‘Dieselgate’ — and Got Off Easy” (Fortune) http://fortune.com/2018/02/06/volkswagen-vw-emissions-scandal-penalties/
    “U.S. authorities have extracted $25 billion in fines, penalties and restitution from VW for the 580,000 tainted diesels it sold in the U.S. In Europe, where the company sold 8 million tainted diesels, VW has not paid a single Euro in government penalties.”
    …how much energy and resources were squandered manufacturing and selling all these vehicles – and what happens to them next?

    On Thursday, a federal grand jury in Detroit, Michigan, indicted four Audi executives for playing a role in the diesel cheating scandals that rocked parent company Volkswagen Group in 2015 and 2016. The four executives—Richard Bauder, Axel Eiser, Stefan Knirsch, and Carsten Nagel—all worked for Audi in Germany, and they have not been arrested. https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2019/01/need-for-a-large-trunk-and-a-high-end-sound-system-pushed-audi-to-cheat/ The four men have been charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States, commit wire fraud, and violate the Clean Air Act. The indictment provides some new details on how emissions cheating unfolded at Audi and VW Group, especially with respect to emissions control system cheats on Audi’s 3.0L diesel vehicles.
