100% electric does not solve our problems, but yeah, cars for rich people (currently subsidized in many US states by a wealth transfer to rich people) _definitely_ doesn't solve our problems.

My impression is that having as much of the global economy's energy needs supplied by electricity as possible is the most viable path to weaning us off fossil fuels. Personal vehicles as a method of transportation are terrible at efficiency, but getting people to stop loving their cars is going to be massively difficult. By comparison, getting them to adopt EVs will be child's play.

this is going to happen v fast, with any luck. Given that the average lifespan of a car is 10 years, it's conceivable we see a massive shift within a decade.

This is pretty good news on that front: https://pv-magazine-usa.com/2019/09/09/teslas-lab-secrets-talking-about-20-year-lithium-ion-battery/

Interesting they mention Sl_lSI partners in that. I’ve met them and they know a lot about finance and a a lot about wishful thinking but stuff all about battery chemistry. Basically they will invest in battery projects that meet their IRR requirements, preferably where someone else is holding the risk.

There are 20 year lithium batteries today. Toshiba Lithium Titanate cells should get you there at a (very high) price. It all comes down to whether the Tesla team can scale that chemistry and electrode structure in a cost effective way. This is probably a when, not if, but when is a long time where battery tech is concerned.

In determining my guilt or innocence the court must consider my frame of reference, which is whatever I say it is, because there is no way to corroborate my assertions.

two weeks pass...

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ryanmac/elon-musk-unsworth-pedo-guy-deposition-private-investigator

let it be clear that "pedo guy" is a known insult among south african youth and not meant to be taken literally

also, Elon hired some scammer out of the UK who randomly offered to dig up dirt on pedo guy for $50K. he will, unfortunately, not be continuing the investigation as our prospective detective is currently in prison

Elon Musk's deposition in the "pedo guy" defamation lawsuit is one of the most revealing windows into the way Elon Musk's brain works. I don't necessarily encourage you to dive in, but here are some highlights if you're curious: https://t.co/I12CnQWndG

Here's a great idea! Instead of thoroughly testing this feature, which would probably delay its release for months, if not a year or two, let's just release it and let our customers play around with it using their own vehicles. They'll tell us where are the problems are, then we can fix them!
