Tom Darden, Elon Musk and Other Tech Leaders Urge California to Push VW for More Electric Cars (VicB2B)

Looks like E-Cat & Industrial Heat investor Tom Darden joined his friends Elon Musk, Michael Brune & Carl Pope at Sierra Club, and a buncha enviro VCs, to get Volkswagon to build more electric cars. Darden sure runs with a crowd of greenies with big dough! Which make him a good guy to be supporting Mr. Rossi and the E-Cat.

An Excerpt:

“A giant sum of money thus will be wasted in attempting to fix cars that cannot all be fixed, and where the fix may be worse than the problem if the cars are crushed well before the end of their useful lives. We, the undersigned, instead encourage the CARB to show leadership in directing VW to “cure the air, not the cars” and reap multiples of what damage has been caused while strongly advancing California’s interests in transitioning to zero emission vehicles . . .

“In contrast to the punishments and recalls being considered, this proposal would be a real win for California emissions, a big win for California jobs, and a historic action to help derail climate change.

“The bottleneck to the greater availability of zero emissions vehicles is the availability of batteries. There is an urgent need to build more battery factories to increase battery supply, and this proposal would ensure that large battery plant and related investments, with their ensuing local jobs, would be made in the U.S. by VW.”
