German court allows Tesla to continue clearing land to build its factory

German court overruled local climate activists’ appeal and allowed Tesla to clear trees in 224 acres of a forest to build a car and battery factory in the outskirts of Berlin. The court has said that its decision is final. Tesla has promised to address the environmental impact by planting trees in three times the area that was being cleared.

why build in Germany? Germany is on its way out. how many Muslim theocratic states build cars? they are too busy keeping women from driving them, to think about building any actual cars.

Surely there was an existing built up industrial area that could have been repurposed, instead of cutting down more forest?

"Forest" they call a replanted park. There are no more "forest" in central Europe. They kill them all.

The consequences of his actions are minimal in his mind since he essentially has no sense of human relativity in his life, and never has. Most insanely rich people aren’t too thoughtful; or at least are incredibly idiosyncratic in what they think is and isnt. His cars are pretty awesome though.
