    And if one of the present companies that are competing to develop the battery of the future comes up with a winner, a great many more battery companies will go bankrupt. But we will not remember that, any more than we remember the all the start up companies that tried to create a successful operating system, and went bust when MicroSoft and Apple created their products.

    Point is, without some investment in the major research, the other natons, Germany, China, and many others, that are making this investment, will be selling the technology here, instead of the other way around.

    But that's OK with you, isn't it, Walleyes. Rather see the nation drop to third world status than see your political ideology exposed for the nonsense that it is.

    your post is horsehockey.

    the point is if they had it all going on VC would have jumped in and funded them. we have 5 national laboratorys working on the tech. side, the production side isn't ready becasue the tech. sdie isn't there or efficable in margins that would prodcue a profit.

    Throwing tax payer money at it, while private money sits on the sidelines should tell you something.

    China only makes that shit because we want it. If we wanted polished aluminum jock straps they'd be making those too.

    Wake up, China is just providing cheap labor for whatever stupid shit the US gov't can subsidize. They don't give a f*ck about your "green technology".

    You bunch of heartless conservatives! These companies do not need to do well, they just need to make liberals FEEL good. Take good intentions; add Hope and change; pretty rainbows; stir in unicorn farts; and we can power the world!! Spread the Rainbow!!!

    It was really hard to call what forum to put it in. I decided on politics as the whole thing was a political move. Funds given for political pay back favors and the whole "green" thing was a political thing for obama.
