President Obama hailed Solyndra for its ‘go clean while going green’ plans for a new post-Bush environment. What a bag of tricks he created in squandering on this environmental loser more than $700 million of taxpayers’ money as poster boy for his ‘save the earth’ campaign.
Not only was the loan flushed straight down the White House toilet by an incompetent, even corrupt corporation. Left behind in its abrupt closure and bankruptcy filing, is a filthy toxic waste dump at its abandoned plant in Milpitas, California, leased from its landlord, iStar C.T.L.I.L.P.
Officials at iStar were not given the keys to the premises until February 2012, though Solyndra had stopped making its lease payments in September 2011. when it filed for bankruptcy protection in Delaware. Left behind, abandoned on the premises were part-opened containers of unidentified chemicals and lead processing machinery. It is known that remnants include liquid chemical compounds, including cadmium sulphide, thiourea and hydrochloric acid, as well as lead contaminated equipment.
Perhaps President Obama is in the process of redefining these compounds as environmental cleansers. If not, perhaps the President would care to cough up his own personal fortune to cover the cost of Environmental Protection Agency violations and to restore the abandoned premises to required pristine environmental standards?
More likely the President will divert his gaze straight back to the campaign trail and leave iStar to clean up the filthy mess that his administration has imposed on Milpitas, California.
‘I have some very nice solar panels on the back of my truck, folks, that I should be pleased to sell to you. They fit well onto the bridge in Brooklyn that goes with them in this once-in-a-lifetime special deal! Just throw the greenbacks onto my campaign truck. ‘Yes, you can!’
