General Electric’s Immelt to Head Council on Jobs and Competitiveness

leave a comment »

GE’s CEO Jeffrey Immelt is being hailed as a “Green Jobs Genius”, but General Electric is about as green as a Hess Truck:

GE is responsible for toxic Superfund sites, knowingly exposing people to radioactive material, and has been fighting Superfund clean-up laws that hold the company accountable for damage caused by years of careless PCB dumping:

    Honeywell International Inc., which was linked to 128 Superfund sites, General Electric Co. (116 sites) and Chevron Corporation (122 sites) are the companies connected to the largest number of Superfund sites. For most of these sites, other companies were also listed as possibly contributing to the pollution.” – From Projects for Public Integrity

    GE has also secured BILLIONS of dollars in defense and military contracts, earning itself a place amongst the most notorious war profiteering companies.

      GE was even compared to Enron in it’s accounting schemes under Immelt. Feeling confident yet? What if I told you they paid ZERO dollars in taxes again in 2010?
