Fourteen tech firms have banded together to form a new industry alliance and cooperatively seek $1 billion to $2 billion in federal funding to create a center for the development and manufacture of domestic lithium ion batteries for transportation applications in the United States. The National Alliance for Advanced Transportation Battery Cell Manufacture is currently being advised by the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, a national research lab and a leading developer of new battery technologies.
More greedy slime lining up at the public trough ! Why don't these parasites simply fund their own consortium and do what they wish. $1,000,000,000.00 to $2,000.000.000.00 of our dollars to assure their profitability is the usual ripoff. This amount of funding could be given to the taxpayers at the rate of $200 each worker (based of 100,000,000 workers) and we could all buy a bicycle and pedal past the offices of these battery makers with our index fingers raised in salute.
