Jeff Immelt, GE CEO, Comes For _____

Go on and add the name Jeff Immelt to the list of Resistors; in fact, put him near the top.

Immelt, the CEO of General Electric, just came for President _____ and his “dangerous” anti-climate and anti-science agenda in a memo to other powerful CEOs in this country.

In his letter, Immelt questions _____’s mental faculties, saying his “imagination is at work” about climate change and he asks other American companies to charge ahead with a green technology agenda since the White House seems hell-bent on destroying the environment:
“Companies must be resilient and learn to adjust to political volatility all over the world. Companies must have their own ‘foreign policy’ and create technology and solutions that address local needs for our customers and society.
We believe climate change should be addressed on a global basis through multi-national agreements, such as the Paris Agreement. We hope that the United States continues to play a constructive role in furthering solutions to these challenges, and at GE, we will continue to lead with our technology and actions.”
Immelt points out that not only is innovation and investment into green technologies environmentally prudent, it is also profitable ... and necessary. He points to others in the global community that are moving ahead: China is investing $360 billion over the next three years in environmentally-friendly technologies, while other countries like Sweden, Costa Rica, and Kenya are leading the charge in developing renewable energy and other green technologies.

Immelt is angry that the rest of the world, and our former president, hoped to move ahead in respect to climate change and global warming and environmental issues until this new president took office and denied science and fact. _____ only talks coal, and appoints billionaires who don’t believe science fact about climate change to handle environmental issues; but _____’s appointees knowing about making a buck and if they can do that by screwing the world, well, why not just go ahead, eh?

In fact, _____ just repealed the Clean Power Act and banned the use of "emissions reduction" in Department of Energy memos.

You can’t even talk about it, and since the White House and the GOP-controlled Congress are all about the Benjamin’s and not about the environment, it’s lucky that we have folks like Jeff Immelt to take up the charge and do what’s right, and best, for people and the world.

Resist ... along with Jeff Immelt.

Sadly the UK, formerly one of the world leaders in green technology, had the funding for R&D by the government removed to save money.....money that could have seen a multi-times return and create UK jobs....our politicos are as loony tune as yours!

And I'm with @AM on the ? of multi-nationals paying their taxes
