Two more days and I can finally stop hearing about it.
Iím voting red all down the ticket, I donít care. Thatís all Iíll say as this site is not a political one.

That being said, no I wouldnít buy a Tesla either.
But I would love to support musk. He is doing a lot of things right and I really admire him. Unfortunately, once the battery is gone then itís a paperweight.

So I agree with the concept and need long term. I have a different issue with the pace itís being forced.

That said a few thoughts:

1) Solar and Wind will never be enough. Either clean energy has to invent something new (and major) or nuclear has to be used. There is no avoiding this or arguing it when you look at how many solar panels the US would need to power just our country.
2) Recycling on panels and wind products is also a major problem. Iím sure it will be solved eventually but itís a problem right now adding to everything.

Finally, Iíll own an EV eventually, wonít have a choice but Iíll have a garage (large one) of ICE vehicles, especially Porsche since they are good about old parts. Why? Because right now EV are soulless crap tactic cars. Fast but not fun.
