Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s Plan To Take Tesla Private  ;D

August 7th, 2018 by Kyle Field


https://cleantechnica.com/2018/08/07/tesla-ceo-elon-musks-plan-to-tesla-private/

Agelbert COMMENT to Zachary Shahan of Cleantechnica:

Zach, nobody here seems to want to mention it (except Kyle in the article), but the Saudi move is evidence that the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn fossil fuelers smell the bankruptcy coffee from losing their market for the (former refinery waste) products called gasoline and diesel.

I have done the math over and over. The "business model" of the Fossil Fuel Industry is a dead man walking without a welfare queen subsidized market for liquid pllanet polluting fuels.

That is the REAL bottom line for those crooks. They are, therefore, going all out to destroy the competition. This is not new to the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn. This is a part of their "buy em' or bop em'" fascist "business model".

Elon has anticipated those dastardly fossi lfuelers at every turn and beat them with high tech products and publlic good will.

But now, the threat to Tesla is an order of magnitude greater. Now, you can be 100% certain that Trump is backing the Saudi move with all the skullduggery he can muster.

Therefore, the e-mail announcing the possible move to go private is exactly the right move. Every shareholder will now realize what the Saudis (and the Koch/Exxon/Chevron,etc. et al tools, including Trump) are up to.

As a group the shareholders will individually put pressure on brokers to NOT sell without specific permission. All the hedge funds and pension funds that hold Tesla stock will be hearing , LOUD AND CLEAR, from people of good will that they will NOT agree to a hostile takeover from polluters.

So, with just a single e-mail, Elon has forced the cretins from the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn to abandon any hope of destroying the company with shorts (the "bop em'" mafia tactic they have used often to destroy the competition).

Simultaneously, the e-mail also exposes the "buy em'" option as an attempt to destroy the competition against liquid hydrocarbon fuels, effectivel destroying the underhanded, but clever, fossil fueller plan to fool the public into believing the stock buy is a "Saudi move o Renewable Energy".

The Hydrocarbon Hellspawn are against the wall. They fight VERY dirty when they are threatened.

Elon Musk needs every single person that understands the good that he is trying to accomplish to get active and call out the happy talk lies about polluting cars over and over and over again.

For those of us who cannot afford an EV, drive your gas guzzler as little as possible. BANKRUPT the fossil fuelers. They CANNOT survive without selling us a LOT of polluting fuel.

If we do not win this fight against the polluters, we are all dead. This is the fight of our lives, people.

Zach, if you could publish a breakdown of how depoendent on selling polluting fuels the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn are, it would help to explain why the fossil fuel industry is trying so hard to destroy the EV business model.

Everyone needs to understand that behind ALL fossil fuel industry moves like what the Saudis are doing (and what Trump is doing to force California to not adopt more environmentally friendly stringent fuel economy standards) is THIS (see below):


Climate Denial Is Now US Policy

Zachary Shahan Community Manager > agelbert
Thanks. This was an idea for my next or 2nd next article. I'm a bit torn on motives here, but want to put both out there for many to consider.

agelbert > Zachary Shahan
Excellent! Thank you.


Wallace on Tesla Stock Shorters:

With $17 (?) billion at risk it seems like a group of them would simply stake out the Fremont factory for a day or two and count the new cars coming out. Hell, they could hire a private investigator.

Either the numbers are coming out or they aren't. The only thing left is somehow Elon is cooking the books and hiding huge amounts of spending.

A few million dollars, I can see that being the Anti-Tesla Cult money, but this is billions. Serious money that someone must be taking seriously.

agelbert > Wallace:

See my comment to Zach. You may not agree with it but, if what I said is correct (and I stand by my claim that it is correct), then it explains why all the serious money from the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn is being spent to crush Tesla.

Tesla is the vanguard of a threat (multiplied many times by the current Chinese EV production rate) to over 60% of the products the fossil fuel industry welfare queens get subsidized to pollute us with.

The liquid hydrocarbon fuels that now provide gigantic profits are slowly changing to a toxic waste product needing hazardous waste handling equipment and technology. There is no way the fossil fuel industry can be "profitable", even with all their welfare queen subsidies, if their marketable products exclude fuels. You can get lubricants from the cracking tower and use the rest for feed stock to make textiles, medicines, fertilizers and plastics (etc.), but the fossil fuelers know that is not a profitable business model.

Here's the pie chart that shows how vital to the fossil fuel industry the polluting liquid fuels are:


This is the obligatory (with very little leeway to modify product percentages, per barrel of crude, in the cracking towers) number of gallons of products from a U.S. (42 gallons) barrel of crude:


Here's some detail:



To say that Fossil Fuel Industry 🦕🦖 😈 disinformation isn’t the whole story is to knock down a straw man: the fact remains that it is a major--and perhaps the most important--part of the story.

The GOP and Big Oil can't escape blame for climate change

By Dana Nuccitelli

Mon 6 Aug 2018 06.00 EDT


SNIPPET 1:

The New York Times magazine blames ‘human nature ,’ but fingers have already been pointed at the true culprits 🐉🦕 🦖

SNIPPET2:

In the key 1983 press briefing, Nierenberg basically lied about the climate report’s findings, claiming it found no urgent need for action. Nierenberg’s false summary made headlines around the world and stymied climate policy efforts for years to come. Only after 1985 when the discovery of ozone depletion captured worldwide attention was climate change able to ride its coattails back into serious policy discussions.

SNIPPET 3:

Culprit #2: the fossil fuel industry 🐉🦕🦖

In his unfortunate Prologue, Rich also describes the fossil fuel industry as “a common boogeyman.” He argues that the fossil fuel industry didn’t mobilize to kill the 1989 Noordwijk negotiation. That’s true, because it didn’t have to; had the treaty even succeeded, it would have just been the very first step in global efforts to cut carbon pollution.

Quote

(@leahstokes)
Of course Exxon wasn’t running a denial campaign until the 1990s. They didn’t need to yet. The threat of policy action was remote. When action became more likely, that’s when fossil fuel companies started their lying in earnest. 6/
August 1, 2018

Immediately after the Noordwijk shot came across its bow, the fossil fuel industry launched a decades-long, many-million-dollar campaign to undermine public trust of climate science and support for climate policy. For example, the Global Climate Coalition (GCC) fossil fuel industry group formed in 1989. By the time the 1992 Rio Earth Summit rolled around, these polluter industry organizations began heavily investing in disinformation campaigns to undermine international and domestic climate policies. Speaking about the Rio summit, Bush 🦀 sounded like Donald Trump 🦀, saying:

Quote
I’m not going to go to the Rio conference and make a bad deal or be a party to a bad deal.

Bill Clinton proposed an energy tax to try and meet the treaty goals anyway, but the GCC invested $1.8m in a disinformation campaign, and Congress voted it down. The GCC then spent $13m to weaken support for the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, and the Senate voted 95-0 to pre-emptively declare its opposition to the treaty. Since then, Exxon alone has given $31m to climate-denying organizations.

📢 It’s been three decades since 1989 😠

The fossil fuel industry is one exceptionally wealthy, influential, and powerful ‘boogeyman.’ As Rich notes in his Epilogue, it’s also been quite successful:

More carbon has been released into the atmosphere since the final day of the Noordwijk conference, Nov. 7, 1989, than in the entire history of civilization preceding it

Apparently at a private dinner the night before his piece was published, Rich described the fossil fuel industry as being “guilty of crimes against humanity.” It’s a shame that his story took on such a different tone. As Benjamin Franta, PhD student in the history of science at Stanford summarized it:

One common mistake in this NYT magazine piece is the idea that companies like Exxon somehow changed from “good” (doing research in the 1970s and ‘80s) to “bad” (promoting denial in the ‘90s and 2000s). Exxon’s own memos show that the purpose of its research program was to influence regulation, not to solve the climate problem per se. The industry-organized disinformation campaign that emerged at the end of the 1980s was in response to binding policies that were just then being proposed. If such policies were proposed earlier, it stands to reason that the industry response would have occurred earlier as well. To say that industry disinformation isn’t the whole story is to knock down a straw man: the fact remains that it is a major--and perhaps the most important--part of the story.

In the alternative universe where the Bush administration didn’t sabotage the Noordwijk climate treaty, the fossil fuel industry would still have crippled global climate policies through its misinformation campaign and by purchasing the Republican Party’s climate denial complicity. 1989 was a missed opportunity, but the fossil fuel industry and GOP can’t escape responsibility for the ensuing three decades of climate failures.

Do Major Corporations Pay a Lot in Income Tax?


The nation's top CEOs get richer, while the U.S. government loses out, at least according to the Institute for Policy Studies. The think tank reviewed tax and personal financial information from 2010 and found that at least 25 U.S. companies paid their CEOs more in total compensation than the firms themselves paid in corporate income taxes.  >:(

In fact, while the CEOs earned an average of $16.7 million USD each, their businesses received an average of $304 million in tax refunds from the federal government.

Among the widest discrepancies:

John Lundgren got paid more than $32.5 million from Stanley Black & Decker, while the firm saw a tax refund of $183 million.

Ford CEO Alan Mulally earned more than $26.5 million and Ford received a $69 million refund. 🤬

The report follows up on recent controversies about sky-high CEO pay, as some estimates show that top executives earn about 325 times more than the average American worker.

It's good to be the boss: 

On average, CEOs in the United States earn the equivalent of $6,000 per hour.

Average CEO pay has jumped 930 percent since 1978, compared with an 11 percent hike for all other employees.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is the world's wealthiest man, with a net worth of about $150 billion USD.

Geo Exchange

Geo Exchange is a system of heating and cooling that uses water and ground loops to use the earth as a heat sink or heat source in the winter.  It also sinks heat into the ground in the summer, as well as heating your hot water year round.

The environmental benefits are that this system is non-polluting, has no exhaust emissions, reduced CO2 emissions, and requires a smaller amount of  both power and refrigerant than conventional systems.

The annual savings are about 60% over conventional heating and cooling costs.

A proud homeowner explains the system in this video. 👍 😎

Quote

Water is circulated through polyethylene pipes in closed loops that are installed below the ground. The loops are connected to an extended range water source heat pump.

The environmental benefits are that this system is non-polluting, has no exhaust emissions, reduced CO2 emissions and requires a smaller amount of both power and refrigerant than conventional systems.

The upfront capital costs for a geo exchange system are 35-40% more, but annual savings with a system like this are about 60% over conventional heating and cooling costs. The payback for the system in this video was 6 years, and now the owner is making money on it.

China to be Hit by Deadly Heat: China's most densely populated--and most agriculturally prosperous--region could see regular "unsurvivable" heat waves by the end of the century, according to new research. A study published Monday in the journal Nature Communications finds that heatwaves in the fertile and densely populated North China Plain region, which includes capital Beijing, could kill people in hours by 2070 if emissions continue at current rates. Many of the region's 400 million inhabitants are agricultural workers, with little alternative to working outside. "This spot is just going to be the hottest spot for deadly heat waves in the future, especially under climate change," MIT's Elfatih Eltahir, who led the study, said in a statement.

Hoosier Agriculture in Trouble: Climate change will have a big impact on Indiana's $31 billion agriculture industry, according to new research. The fifth installment of the Purdue Climate Change Research Center's research, released Tuesday, ties each 1 degree F increase in average overnight temperature to a two percent drop in corn yields, leading to a decrease in yields of up to 20 percent over the next 30 years. Heat will also impact agricultural workers and animals, while increased diseases may mean more pesticide use. Indiana is one of the top five most productive US states for crops, and nearly 80 percent of its farmland is dedicated to the production of corn and soybeans--which will also take a hit by midcentury.

Trump Admin 🦕😈🦖👹: Driving Efficient Cars is Bad For You: As part of its effort to roll back fuel economy standards, the Trump administration plans to argue that improved gas mileage for cars and trucks would be more dangerous for drivers, the AP reported Wednesday. A draft of the administration's long-anticipated proposal to freeze fuel efficiency standards, seen by the AP, posits that freezing the standards could prevent up to 1,000 deaths per year, since less efficient and heavier cars would prevent people from driving more. "To say that safety is a direct result of somehow freezing the fuel economy mandate for a few years, I think that’s a stretch," Giorgio Rizzoni, director of the Center for Automotive Research at Ohio State University, told the AP. Transportation is the largest single source of air pollution in the country, and research last year found that even small increases in pollution correlated to more than 100,000 additional deaths among elderly populations. The proposal, which could be released as soon as this week, also contains plans to challenge California's ability to set its own standards, the AP reports.
