Eventually, Joe Schmo Will Have His Electric Car “Lightbulb Moment”

March 21st, 2018 by Matt Pressman

Originally published on EVANNEX


SNIPPET:

Tesla’s Elon Musk recently said, “If somebody said you’re gonna pour the liquid remains of dinosaurs into your vehicle and burn them in order to move from one place to another, releasing toxic fumes – and by the way, you better not have your car on in a closed room cause you’re gonna die – you’d say, ‘Why are we doing that?’ People drive basically parked in traffic with the air inlet [open] for their cabin right in front of the exhaust pipe of another car. It’s insane. You’re sucking up the toxic gas from the car in front of you.”


Finkel puts this all in historical perspective; he reminds us. “In the 1880s, the idea of electric street lights seemed absurd. If you had to light the streets, you did it with gas. Gas lamps were a fire hazard, smelled terrible and were barely an improvement on total darkness. Apart from that, they were fine… The problems were obvious; the potential was only visible to those with the courage to look.”

Agelbert COMMENT:

Well said. I would add that insane behavior is conducive to a short life span.

"The data shows the climate policy agenda, in terms of corporate influencing 🐲, is being driven by a small number of massive global corporations 🐉🦕🦖  .
It also shows a group of powerful of companies in the tech, consumer goods and utilities sectors increasingly pushing for policy to implement the Paris Agreement." - Dylan Tanner, Executive Director, InfluenceMap

“Lobbying should come under the same scrutiny as any other business activity. If companies 😈 are making a concerted effort to undermine climate policy, they may well be driving a systemic risk that will impact portfolios.” - Alice Garton, Corporate lawyer, ClientEarth

"Corporations can greatly influence what policies are adopted to address climate change. Thus it is important to extend the analysis of corporate behavior beyond its physical emissions. This accounting system clearly shows which corporations are assisting in a transition to a low carbon future, and those that are hindering this effort. Investors concerned about climate change need to take corporate policy actions into account in their investment decisions." - Robert J. Brulle, Professor of Sociology and Environmental Science, Drexel University

But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou
hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Acts 8:20
