At Solyndra’s sprawling complex in Fremont, workers in white jumpsuits were unwrapping brand new glass tubes used in solar panels last week. They are the latest, most cutting-edge solar technology, and they are being thrown into dumpsters.
Forklifts brought one pallet after another piled high with the carefully packaged glass. Slowly but surely it all ended up shattered.Worst of all, CBS interviewed someone who wanted to buy them, but Solyndra preferred to spend money destroying them and throwing them away instead. A keenly sharp comment on the article:
Bankrupt subsidized green company fails to recycle glass.Remember that "green" corporation really means a scheme for redistributing money from the middle class to politically connected rich people. That's why Democrats support green businesses with these sort of government aid programs.
