“Today’s action is influenced by a NHTSA investigation into six reports of air bag inflator ruptures, all of which occurred in Florida and Puerto Rico.
“Based on the limited data available at this time, NHTSA supports efforts by automakers to address the immediate risk in areasthat have consistently hot, humid conditions over extended periods of time.
Consumers impacted by the recalls should have their vehicles serviced promptly once they receive notification from their vehicle manufacturer. NHTSA remains in close communication with the supplier and automakers to gather additional data and will take appropriate action based on our findings.”

Chevron is once again lashing out against anyone who dares to hold it accountable for its actions in Ecuador. Found guilty in 2011 for deliberately dumping over 18 billion gallons of toxic waste into the Ecuadorian Amazon and causing an environmental and public health crisis that has been called “Chernobyl in the Amazon,” the company was ordered to pay $9.5 billion to try to repair the damage. Instead it has spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to evade justice.
Recently Amazon Watch released videos provided to us by a Chevron whistleblower – videos that have now been viewed millions of times – showing Chevron finding and hiding toxic contamination during the trial. This “smoking gun” evidence infuriated Chevron’s leadership and in response, the company has once again targeted Amazon Watch.
Chevron’s strategy is to harass organizations critical of its operations not just in Ecuador but elsewhere. After the whistleblower videos were released, a “reporter” emailed false and misleading information about Amazon Watch to many of our largest funders in an apparent attempt to pressure them to withdraw their support. This is not the first time Chevron has tried to intimidate us, and it’s not likely to be the last. Previous attempts backfired as supporters responded with statements like, “such bullying was meant to shake our partnership with Amazon Watch, when in fact, it only reinforced it.”
Help us stand up to Chevron’s bullying. We are a small non-profit confronting one of the largest corporations in the world. I want to ask you each to make your own statement that you will not be intimidated. You can turn Chevron’s attack into a win for justice and the environment by donating to the campaign to Clean Up Ecuador today.
Next week Chevron must open its doors for its annual shareholder meeting. Amazon Watch will be there accompanying Humberto Piaguaje who will travel from the Ecuadorian Amazon to represent the 30,000 indigenous and campesino residents still living in the midst of Chevron’s toxic mess. Standing with us will be representatives from a growing alliance of organizations and individuals we have helped organize into the True Cost of Chevron Network. This network represents people from around the world including Nigeria, the Philippines and California standing strong to demand that Chevron stop harming our families, communities and environment.
Let’s end Chevron’s corporate culture of deception, corruption and destruction. Please donate today.
