You've already contributed more than enough - Fear not!
From Oil Change International - The thank you letter you didn't receive last year:
Dear average American taxpayer,
As 2010 comes to a close, your friends in the oil industry would like to acknowledge your ongoing generosity and support.
Last year, in addition to the roughly $2300 you spent on gasoline, you gave us at least $10 billion in subsidies. You have our assurances that this money will be used to continue to buy your government, violate human rights, pollute your backyard and the whole planet, and greenwash our image. We're sorry about that little issue with the Gulf of Mexico, but we'd like you to believe its all gone now, and so we'll spend several tens of millions more on an advertising campaign to reassure you.
Your contributions to the oil industry are generously matched by, well, no one. You give us the most. Thanks .
Over the coming year we'll keep buying your democracy, you keep giving us billions, and it'll all be good.
Where in the world did this number come from?! Even the expensive units are only $50K plus installation - and the Nissan units are supposed to be closer to $15-ish thousand. Which side are you on here?garygid wrote:Keep in mind that $400,000 for installing a single L3 station is ... WAY high.
