Foreign Job Creation?: Obama Administration to Partner With Korea in Researching Green Tech

In 2010 Obama was pushing the idea that we can create jobs by designing and building "Green" tech here in the U.S.:

Well at times like these I remember what my father used to tell me, don't listen to what a person says, instead pay attention to what a person does. It would seem that President Obama isn't exactly practicing what he preaches.

According to an Article on hydro-energy business review.com, the United States and Korea are forming a Clean Energy Partnership:

"The US Department of Energy (DOE) has signed an agreement with the Republic of Korea to establish a new clean energy technology partnership.

The new partnership will strengthen the two countries' bilateral cooperation in clean energy technology research and development (R&D).

Under the agreement, the countries will cooperate on clean energy research in areas including renewable energy, energy efficiency, smart grid technology, green transportation, carbon capture and storage and energy storage systems.

Researchers from both countries will exchange scientific and technical information, organize workshops and consult to promote joint R&D projects, among other forms of collaboration.

DOE secretary Steven Chu said the agreement will enable the US and the Republic of Korea to expand their strong bilateral cooperation on clean energy.

"By working together toward our shared clean energy goals, we can promote the kind of innovation that will help win the clean energy race," Chu said."

Call me silly, but if the U.S. is going to share our Research for the Green Tech we are going to build with Korea, what will prevent Korea from using that Research to build the Green Tech?

President Obama is trying to sell the American People on the Green Revolution by saying we will design and build Green products, like windmills and batteries, here in the U.S. so we can sell them abroad. Isn't this partnership counter productive to that idea?

So yet again, it would seem that the Obama administration is going to allow U.S. research to be used to create jobs... in Korea.

I'm sure the Korean people will show their gratitude by voting for Obama in 2012.

Well at least he'll have a few votes that way.
