CONGRESSMAN DAN MAFFEI LIES ABOUT EXPORTING GREEN JOBS. GOOD LUCK. Posted on October 1, 2009 at 12:51:57 PM by GASOLINE JOE
The US will be importing green technology and not exporting it as my liberal democratic friends pontificate.
2 examples of 28. The democrats won't tell you because they don't know very much about energy issues. Yet they talk as if they do. Ask Our Congressman Dan Maffei. Does he or Jim, our local democratic leader, know that it takes approx 4 pounds of Neoglmium, a toxic slurry that makes magnets more efficient, in every fuel efficient Prius. Did you know, China controls 99% of this... Does the Post Standard report this?
Also A Korean co. is buying a Czech turbine maker so as to compete with GE and France's Alstom Co.
China is controlling its rare earth minerals exports to other countries. Approx. 17 elements minerals, minerals that the USA is losing control of, are used in advanced green applicatings. Over the last two months there have been many artcles about China's aggressive move into mining. Due to environmental extremists, look at the Desert Rock case, green jobs will not be exported. WE DON'T WANT TO MINE AND WE DON'T WANT TO MANUFACTURE OR ASSEMBLE THINGS ANYMORE. So good luck with your green jobs rhetoric. But we can still increase domesctic oil production to stabilize the economy and create jobs, create oil for all those luxury SUVs and cars liberals will still be driving ten years from today, stabilize the dollar, reduce trade deficit, national security. As a liberal I hate to say it but there will be only a small amount of Green jobs to be exported. Sorry Dan Maffei.
Sorry to tell the truth. China and Japan are the leaders in electric cars.
