Well, don't be surpised if the NUMMI plant, in Fremont, doesn't enter into the foray. After all, Toyota just announced they'll cease manufacturing operations at the facility.

Downey has been the site of a lot of carcinogens at the former NASA facility.

Tesla and Cancer should be the banner if Downey wins the honors.

They should do a full evaluation of any site for perc and other chemicals that cause cancer.

You know they gotta be lying around; they did a study a while ago and found people working at a site near the NASA facility had a high incidence of cancer.

GO figure.
Go for It

As if Long Beach wasn't polluted enough already. I say go for it. WTF are Pat West & Bob Foster smoking on to let a deal like this get a way. A MOVIE STUDIO? You got to be kidding me. Come the next election, you can be sure that Foster doesn't get my vote and I put a recommendation in for West to hit the road Jack. That guy couldn't manage a McDonnalds, let alone a whole city.

GO figure.
They have to do testing and cleanup if necessary. It is the state law. And it is expensive. I know because the company I work for had to it on a new site.

I would say that Tesla after all other considerations... is looking for a smart talented labor force that's not governed by the UAW.

The UAW is part of the reason why the big auto makers are in trouble in the first place.

Tesla with a production projection of 20,000 vehicles a year makes them a relatively small auto maker, and they don't need the grief.
