Tesla’s Giga Texas Battery Permit Is in Same Danger as Giga Berlin webfi network

Tesla Giga Texas battery permit is in danger because its now challenged by environmentalists. Tesla had a previous run in with environmental activists over its Giga Berlin factory.

In a letter to Mayor of Austin Steve Adler and the rest of council, the groups say the manufacturing process will require a substantial amount of water and chemicals, and that as a result, a hazardous waste stream will form.

“Where will the toxic waste end up? How will Austin ensure that it doesn’t pollute the water?” the letter asks.

The groups, which include East Austin group PODER, the Texas Anti-Poverty Project, Hornsby Bend Alliance and others are demanding that the city of Austin wait on Tesla Giga Texas battery permit approval until the company makes commitments to engage with the community and protect the environment.

The groups’ point is this: “If we do not raise the bar for the increasing number of corporations who wish to relocate to Austin or expand their presence, we risk losing precisely that which attracts people to live here in the first place: the clean, beautiful environment that is the foundation of our collective quality of life,” the letter states.

    That environmental group is a front for soros.

    Maybe someone has been eating to many Texan steaks…. and full of bull.

  • kfk256 on May 27, 2022

    Fear mongering again, are we?

  • Doug Diamond on May 27, 2022

    With all the horrible problems in Texas, they chose to protest this? What a bunch of sell outs.

  • kfk256 on May 27, 2022

    You want to bet that the battery plant will be built and responsibly too.

    You are getting Texas mixed up with Germany and nothing could be further from the truth. Remember that Texas is "NOT" Germany.

    Tesla dropping out of ESG index was a farce. Badly polluting companies are in the index, including legacy auto, despite damaging air quality, ruining children's health and having higher death and injury stats than Tesla.

    The people who determine index constituents need to take a good hard look at themselves in the mirror.

    Tesla isn't perfect but nor are their peer group & comparators – Legacy Auto.

    Use your worlds in a proper way!

    Do you know "Texas State" laws and the relations between local government and state government? You should take the time to know. Texas Democratic party operatives are looking for attention again. I am going to suggest that you first investigate every issue before rushing to post it "On YouTube".

    I would guess Ford and GM are behind this. We should boycott them.

  • uowebfoot on May 27, 2022

    It's Texas. They'll make it happen.

  • Paul Hill on May 27, 2022

    Tesla will get their permit. Texas is not Germany, which takes for ever to do anything. You and I both live in NC and these BS complaints would not stop the battery production permit in either state.

  • Diego Aduriz on May 27, 2022

    No news.
    Battery factory will be constructed.
    If locals have to drink bottled water, so be it.

  • Smythe on May 27, 2022

    They have to sue to cancel the permit. They did it to oil pipeline and drilling.

  • Dularr on May 27, 2022

    It's east Austin. This will not be a problem. Now if it's west Austin or south Austin, this might be a problem. (Austin can't expand any further north.)
    But east of Austin is open for development for hundreds and hundreds of miles.

    Life as an adult is not a bed of Roses, they are up and down just like the crypto market and I'd say crypto investments is not a bad one.

  • Chris Thomas on May 28, 2022

    This are no real environmentalists. This are muppets working for the old car brands and the oil-industry – the point is that most of those fools do not know it.
    I can not believe how humans can be.

  • strade on May 28, 2022

    is it possible to recycle/clean the used water in the plant? cost efficiently? if so, Tesla would want to prove it to make it perfect. If not, what are the plans for any company / government of the possible pollution? this sounds like nice thing to ask to corporates.

  • Thomas Allerup on May 28, 2022

    In Germany the activist was people from BMW etc. In Texas the activist is the Unions from Goverment Motors (GM) and the oil companies.

  • D L on May 28, 2022

    Oh, give me a break I cant believe a place like Texas will let these tree-hugging people who want it both ways they don't want gas-powered cars and lobbied anyone who would listen over the years now that things are looking better and we are starting to see a big push to EV'S noe they move the goal post. So I think we should be looking into who funds these groups. And why is one of their supporters the European Union pathway and the Ford Foundation and many others
