They paid it back.
Ford on the hand got $6 billion from the department of energy and has given little in return.
It is unfortunate how the web continues false info and lack of facts.
here is the info on the money never paid back and it is Ford not GM
It is remarkable, but when it comes to the harm being done in the world, all roads lead back to China and some angle they're playing at everybody else's expense. Just about every time.
China puts out more "greenhouse gas" more carbon than the US and the EU put together and there is no end in building coal power plants in sight. India has just surpassed the EU. Unless something is done about China, this electric vehicle thing is a joke. As is every other measure to chase the rabbit down the hole.
And then there is the con job which is wind and solar power -- which has created rolling blackouts in CA more and more every year as they force a fantasy-based green agenda.
Trust me they already have plans on taxes. Check out how Oregon is working on it.
Let’s face it who ever thought most of us would pay for TV or in some cases radio?
They have 20 years to sort this out.
It is coming no matter what excuse any of us can come up with.
The current change in the climate is most likely due to a seldom mentioned subject. The earth's precession or wobble, on it's axis. You can google the Mexican highway that posts signs of how far north the Tropic of Cancer has moved every year due to this wobble. I can see the change on my property. When I built my house with an RV shelter, the Sun NEVER shined on the Northern side of the RV shelter. NOW IT DOES EVERY SUMMER. The Sun has moved farther North in the Summer and farther South in the Winter. This wobble of the earth spinning on its axis causing the Tropic of Cancer to move farther North and the Tropic of Cancer to move farther South is the reason for the Climate change. Just research it. IT ISN'T DUE TO GREEN HOUSE GASES.
