  1. Finally. The whole thing was embarrasing. The area in question was a monoculture of trees, made to be harvested soon anyway. Brandenburg has many of these, among many more real forests. These monocultures are so outdated, that new once are not created anymore, because they only harbor so few species and are vulnerable to pests. Tesla contracted themselves to plant three times the area with modern mixed standards. Even the often radical BUND (big, respected nature NGO), said this is ok.

    The monoculture is situated between a Industrial complex and a autobahn. So disturbed already.

    Brandenburg really can need the jobs, and an innovative ecological company coming here is a really big things.

    Most people new most or part of this and where looking forward to Tesla coming. I was a stupid/uninformed minority that made that lawsuit. It was clear from the beginning, that it would fall through.

    That is why I think it was embarrasing.

  2. to be fair Elon did donate 1mill to that tree planting project at $1 a tree.

  3. Well, they do need wood in the factory too. It had to come from somewhere.
