Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm on Batteries

How vital is the electrification of vehicles to a state like Michigan? What steps are being taken to ensure Michigan seizes the American automobile battery marketplace? Will lithium ion be the battery of choice for electric vehicles? These are questions Jennifer Granholm's administration is currently grappling with to do it's part to lead Michigan back from the brink of disaster to the forefront of automotive excellence. In a Newsweek article, Michigan Governor Granholm lays out her vision for how electric technologies will be harnessed to create opportunities in Michigan.

One question followers of EEStor Inc., may be curious about is what will happen to all of the private and government investment in lithium ion based technologies, once EEStor achieves it's immediate goal of completing it's EESU production capacity??? If you're Ian Clifford at Zenn Motor Company, how does conversation with the Governor go? Stay tuned...you may find out...

Ian has little to do with EEStor concerning the actual introduction of EEStor's technology. So far DW has not advised the government or major industries (that we know of) that Li ion is a dead end.

If DW knows the truth yet says nothing, in such times, with national energy independence on the line etc. then I would question his motives.
I am sure that he could get super protection for his IP from the government in consideration of saving our government and economy billions.
