Re: Tesla to cut thousands of jobs as Elon Musk warns the ‘road ahead is very difficuFeb 18th, 2020
A German court ruled this week that Elon Musk must halt his plan to clear a forest near Berlin in order to build Tesla's German Gigafactory. The court put the stay on Tesla while it considers challenges from environmentalists, according to Bloomberg.
That's right - Tesla was cutting down a forest to put up an EV factory - this is environmentalism in 2020.
The court issued an injunction against further construction after it overturned a lower court's ruling against environmental group Gruene Liga Brandenburg, who is looking to prevent Tesla from clearing the forest. The court is expected to render a final decision on the complaint in several days.
Joerg Steinbach, spokesman for the regional government said: "Tesla and the local government have already filed their response to the complaint and are now relying on the prompt decision of the court."
