The motor is also made in Korea (it says on top of it). I believe I've heard that the AC and display are as well. All by LG.I see on my window sticker that 65% of my car’s parts are US/Canadian and 19% are Korean. I’m curious, is that 19% mostly the battery and is there a place to look up a more detailed breakdown of which parts are made where?
American car, huh?Keep the business local?
Keep your neighbors employed?
I wish that was true. Central Virginia looks like a war zone. Trees are considered a crop here...a crop that takes 40 years to regrow, assuming they will grow back given increasing temperatures, diseases, and pests.As I understand, environmental regulations restrict harvesting in the US, so it is often cheaper to ship from overseas.
This is true. I took an Alaska cruise years ago that ended in Canada. I did some reading about the areas the ship was passing through and stopping at. I learned that there was once huge lumber mills and paper plants and thousands employed up there. All that came to an end due to regulations to appease "environmental" groups. As we were working our way through the islands off the coast, shortly after crossing into Canada, there were suddenly these huge chunks of brown where trees had been recently clear-cut. You could also see huge tracts of shorter trees that had been previously cut. Apparently Canada has no problem with using their replaceable natural resources.As I understand, environmental regulations restrict harvesting in the US, so it is often cheaper to ship from overseas.
And the scientists are saying we need to be planting unimaginable numbers of them. So many that we need to stop using land for cattle feed, and convert it instead to trees. So my point is cutting trees is counterproductive, unless you are planning to dump them in a subduction zone, Pollyanna.Uh... we're talking about trees here, negative Nancy.
