Oy Oy Oy: The Shame of Cleantech

This bit of map-plotting must have been exquisitely painful for someone at the Guardian: They've put together a list of the world's 100 most important cleantech companies (the Guardian likes that sort of thing), and guess where Israel is on the list? Well, lets start by noting which continents aren't represented at all: South America, Africa, Australia and Antarctica. Also the entirety of what used to be the Soviet Block. Then, let's look at the top countries which are represented, from top down: USA, UK, Germany.... and Israel. And actually, if you count the two American firms which were set up and are run by Israelis, Israel ties Germany.

Boycotters, where are you when we need you?

your second link doesn't work any longer
but I looked at the first and amazing enough could see no Japan on it. Long ago the media tried to raise scares that Japan would outdo anybody in cleantech and nobody would ever be able to catch up

Were we lied to back then or did Japan take a wrong turn

Of course no psychotic 'progressive' worth his meds pretends any longer to even like wind power because that somehow is either harmful or done at the secret bidding of the evil corporations as well. If they can blame all that on the Jews as well, it's just a bonus for them.
