No surprise, another wealth transfer scheme to enable enemies of civilization. Environmentalism is within the Marxist tradition so it makes sense that a communist state benefits from the so-called green jobs revolution. Despite it’s Westernization, the U.A.E. still has a culture of supporting Islamic terrorism.
So Much for ‘Green Jobs’: Wind Turbine Manufacturing Work Goes to Communist China
by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart
Another hole has been punched in the leftist promise of a so-called “green jobs revolution”, as wind turbine manufacturing jobs are sent to Communist-run China and the Middle East.
Local manufacturing firm BiFab, located just miles from the enormous Seagreen offshore wind project, has not been awarded any of the work on the expensive turbines for Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE), with 84 of 114 required being awarded to a Chinese yard and 30 to a firm based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“We are extremely disappointed that the developers have chosen to exclude Scottish yards from any fabrication contracts,” said DF Barnes, which owns BiFab along with the Scottish Government, in comments reported by The Press and Journal.
“Since acquiring BiFab, we have been trying exceptionally hard to get people back to work in our yards.“Instead, Scottish and Southern Energy, in the face of what could be one of the worst recessions in modern history, has chosen to give all the fabrication work for one of the largest offshore windfarm projects in the world to companies in China and the UAE,” they lamented.
