Can You Say Green Jobs

Obama The Liar-in-ChiefCan you say green jobs? It’s easy; just say, “gōngzuņ de” which is Chinese for “green jobs.” and it looks like China will be where those “green jobs” that Obama promised will be.

It seems that back in September 2011, the Obama-appointed heads of General Motors signed an agreement with the Chinese government to effectively move all future electric vehicle (EV) development to China. Primary production of such vehicles will also likely move to China.

America’s Liar-in-Chief, Obama strikes again.

But then almost all of these “green jobs” that Obama has touted and attacked traditional American jobs and practices over have gone to foreigners so GM’s moving their electric powertrain development to China shouldn’t come as a surprise despite Obama giving them a massive handout from the taxpayers’ coffers.

    Jonolan,

    When I grow up I want to drive an electric car and become one of the 1%.

    The one new thing I got from this article was the 500 lbs of lithium batteries that need to be disposed of per electric car. I will have to research that more.

    Yep, they’re not economically viable and there’s a real environmental hazard caused by the batteries, both from the mining and refining of the rare earths and from the disposal of the batteries.

    As for disposal – there’s currently only company, Toxco, that can handle them and they’re supported by government subsidies and grants – $9.5 million most recently as part of Porkulus.

    Jonolan,

    Electric cars and all green BS should be judged by the same standards that oil and coal are judged by. They should have to be perfect. Since they are not, they should pay pollution fees equivalent to the carbon taxes, the green idiots want the rest of us to pay.

  4. jonolan Says:

    Pretty much, Alan. The Warmists are too caught up in CO2 to even think about that though, and the Liberals…they really just want personal transport limited so that they can control people more easily.

    There’s also the fact that we off-shore a lot of the pollution for these things to China, where the rare earth and, for florescent bulbs, mercury is mined and refined.
