Green battery manufacturer closed by Obama's even-greener EPA.
Going Green: EPA Puts Brakes on Chevy Volt's Battery Manufacturer.
After getting scolded by the Department of Energy for paying employees (with taxpayer dollars) to play cards and volunteer at local charities, the manufacturer of the Lithium-ion batteries for Chevy Volts finally got their assembly lines moving. . . Only to shut them down again because of “environmental concerns.” It’s kinda cute to watch liberals stumble through their own web of regulatory obstacles.
The LG Chem battery plant in Holland, Michigan was finally scheduled to manufacture a battery or two after years of endless delays. After receiving over $150 million in federal funds, and roughly $175 million in green-energy tax credits, the company decided that it should actually produce a product.
According to the original press reports, the company was supposed to hire over 400 workers, and start producing Lithium-ion batteries for the combustible Chevy Volt as early as 2012 – two years after they scrapped together some environmental fools willing to invest taxpayer dollars in their project. Serving as living proof that Liberals misunderstand the concept of business, the company then paid their workers. . . .well, to do nothing.
that is not crimnal. When big Jim ask Barbie what was wrong with him. How about that answer? Big Jim had shot half a dozen in cold blood but Barbies answer was, No not crimnal, what wrong with you is... you are a politian. I think they set up that whole dome thing, weeks of hourly programing, just to highlight that one truth.
