Is more than double the amount when.
Making -- gas powered car.
And depending on how many miles to green cars driven it may never make up the difference in Jonathan this comes as the president.
Calling for another -- billion dollars in green investments is he kidding.
More spending -- -- -- and meanwhile these reports are demonstrating once again the inherent.
-- eruption there.
Of the green movement of the environmental movement -- SharePoint electric car actually creates more -- -- we don't we saw the same thing.
That would add that all that was the previous a technology -- to pushing that created more CO2 even -- gasoline or even solar panels of course with we spent billions of dollars subsidizing creates very harmful emissions and chemicals except for a but it goes to what degree movement is about it's not just.
Necessarily helping a man or.
It's hurting -- it's not -- protecting nature it hurts nature and just the audacity of government forcing you to use technology.
-- -- -- -- -- -- That doesn't work and that is of no help -- you nor I mean if that's not suicidal I don't know what and Julie we found out this week that mister Fister of Fister -- who took.
Million dollars of of our money decided stepped down from Fister today well what's going on here we're just throwing money at the.
-- -- -- what's -- -- sister but look I I fully to -- like Jonathan said about the need for clean energy we needed because I you know I frankly think global warming is an issue meaning not.
But if we don't do it China is doing as you think -- -- -- -- well as long as -- and about 99% of all noble prize by scientists think is an issue but you know the united decide debate that later at a different time -- I'm not assigned to -- you but they -- -- they agree with -- I will say this you know China is kicking our butts when it comes to green energy production of.
Don't do it if you want that Atlanta I -- -- argue they are what they are my reviews saying look there that's me everything except I am producing an -- if we don't do it.
They're gonna do it and -- create clean energy.
Yeah -- hold on guys hey wait hey Wayne do we care if China's that produces a solar power.
Panel that produces electricity get two or three times even four times the cost -- -- all the fossil fuel lot megawatt.
The big god -- them -- go ahead and I didn't think that is -- economic the federal government tends to do.
They -- what business did they have to be in the automobile business on God's sake and why why should the federal government -- in any business they can't run anything right they can't do anything but lose our money it's costing you the taxpayer.
Bundles of money down the federal government get into anything it's just stupid but now when you say you come back do you go to -- substitutes simply -- when it becomes economically feasible to do so.
Private industry -- -- that David is not let somebody else do it why not.
Right up there let the Chinese do it will get it from the treasury just horrible bunch of buff -- but it's the logos of different initiatives that we've thrown a ton -- -- -- indirect.
ABC wants you to what -- 123 battery system.
And on beacon energy on and I love him there they are we -- billions of cell.
Out of billions of dollars and their -- They're failing and -- Wayne hit the nail on the head and when it becomes economical and feasible.
Private industry will capitalize on this and want to make money doing it our government should not be trying to figure this out -- this goes back to health -- this goes back to everything.
It's shoot first ask questions later they don't know what they're doing you know what your job is to protect us protect us -- up or an aisle that the -- and.
And she let it get America and -- -- met Mary -- President Obama this week went argon national labs in Illinois.

I'm happy for green titans to do what they want to -- to innovate as long they do it with their money and money that they -- willingly from private folks.
-- -- had the only automobile that's ever broken down during its consumer reports.
A test because they use an 8123 battery which we also subsidized and it broke down so I'm happy for him to make crappy cars -- break down with his own money and with other fuels when he gave it to -- don't do -- with money taken from people it's just not a good investment.
Green energy spine I say revolution but do it with your -- money.
John it it's it's it's not.
Greene Eric to getting back and what you started on the fact that these electric cars actually create more hazardous waste then their gas powered counterparts where that -- Ethanol produces more -- little things -- -- -- well promise of the green revolution you know as always admitted to our by the data suggest the top.
It's a clever I think it's great -- we think your way.
Another way right didn't you -- it.
Cult nuclear what are we want figured out -- look at it Indy so what we've got a pretty big man you got the -- the success with the government getting involved on Wall Street went into the Wall Street bailout I mean I know -- yeah.

Who hold my guy to stop we use.
Don't know if we're gambling record -- says -- -- not blaming George Bush for all I'm saying is if you want to subsidize you know you got to pick and choose what the governor doesn't meet the -- and the government subsidizes the oil industry right we're gonna leave it there.
Maybe I don't feel your in your defense made you don't realize we all this this casually and.
