Fisker Automotive Inc., a recipient of hundreds of millions in federal loans to develop and build luxury plug-in cars, is firing about 75 percent of its workforce after failing to secure a deal with an automotive partner to fund operations.

Nothing says “let’s worship Mother Gaia” like holding an event in a difficult to reach location, with no parking anywhere close, nowhere near public transportation so special shuttles will need to be rented, amidst some of the most expensive real estate in the county. Another great event for limousine environmentalists! What time will the Druids arrive for chants?
