DETROIT (WWJ) – Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm went to Arkansas to call for new investments in clean energy.

Granholm spoke Thursday evening at the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock.

The Democrat says the federal government needs to do more to develop solar energy and other forms of power.

Granholm told the story of a Michigan town, Greenville, that lost the Elextrolux refrigerator plant to Mexico, but has started to replace those jobs with solar panel factories.

Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe introduced Granholm by calling on audience members to “evangelize in the old Southern way” about clean energy.

    Clean energy topics are best handled, explained, promoted and designed by knowledgeable STEM people, especially engineers. In fact, this is a call for engineers to speak out about technology matters in America. Here we have a former Michigan politician with Harvard, LLD talking energy matters. America really needs more engineers doing the same and doing a much better job. America is dominated by inexperienced people pushing special agendas. This is a problem. America technology is best supported by experienced STEM people who know the process. American engineers must provide more voice on national topics critical to America’s future.

    What a load. Still sending jobs out of the country. There’s already a glut of engineers making a joke for a pay check. The only people making money off the Green Thing, are congressmen, lobbyists, colleges and, the corporate state. Granholm is working for one of the biggest polluters in the world. Republican or Democrat, there all the same, minions of the corporate state. holy moley. We’re doomed.
