" didn't say that he was behind it, I asked if by chance he might know who was. He's just another basher like you, perhaps one step higher in the food chain than you."
This is at best STUPID. The CO2 produced in manufacturing either a Tesla or a gasoline car is trivial compared to the CO2 produced by driving it. Tesla's are very efficient in operation compared to gasoline cars.
"The mechanic working on my drove me back home the other day and started talking about this guy who dropped his model s off for service and it took him like 1/2 hr to find the start on the screen."
Tesla technicians only work on Teslas. The idiot poster is claiming the technician, who only works on Teslas, all of which have the same "start" could not find the start. Do you also have a doctor who does not know your heart is located in your chest?
The poster is stupid, and is a liar. If I find out that he is fat, I am going to guess that he is Governor Christie.
no, what it means it that all the pumpers (except maybe you) have sold out b/c they know TSLA is waaaaaaaaaaay overvalued. Remember at $150, elon said this pos overvalued.
Your argument is sophomoric at best. I don't know any serial killers personally but I'm pretty sure they're sleazy. Criminals often invest their OWN money and work hard developing their plans before stealing from other people. Does that make them less sleazy?
The votes have been counted and car dealers have been voted off the island.
1700's huh? that might not be an entirely bad thing. it would be a quick fix to getting Ellen and Jim Cramer off the air.
I've heard about that EMP theory before though...you think maybe that's why the Russian spy ship was in Cuba just last week? And by the way, where did it go since?? Wasn't Iran sending a fleet of ships in this direction too? Why doesn't our media cover this?
I'm curious shotunderpar, who do you think "they" are?? I think it might be George Soros ;)
global warming? what's that? maybe I should have mentioned i'm a conservative republican too. also, I live on the east coast and drive an suv with a 6.2 liter v8 that avg 12 mpg.
Seriously, too many tree hippy huggers in this stock
You remind me of George Costanza, "Jerry, it's not a lie.....if you believe it". I guess thats what it takes to steal from the elderly and take advantage of women, yet still be able to look at yourself in mirror each morning.
I see this falling more as people who got in around last earnings call see their profits slip.
I am buying back in, day before next earnings,
Sentiment: Strong Sell
A dirty bomb....no
What they really want to do is detonate a nuclear bomb at altitude....generating an EMP that will send the US back to the 1700's
So careful what you wish for shorties.....that will certainly collapse everything...people will die and money will be an afterthought....
While most people will stay connected to the electric grid, it will be possible, in principal, for people to make their own solar power at home, store it in their own batteries and use it to run their own cars.
I know a guy here in California who lives in a rural area and put in enough solar capacity to do exactly that. He's still on the grid, because he sells his excess power to PG&E, but for him it's optional.
The mere fact that we could give the power companies the finger and generate our own power (Maybe not every home, but each town or metro area could do it) is what will keep the power companies reasonable & honest. When they know we are their slaves, and we don't have a practical alternative, that's when we have to watch out.
I don't see Tesla being interested.
Why? There is functionally zero hydrogen infrastructure in the US (only a few toy stations in California) While the electrical infrastructure is incredibly robust and omnipresent. (I'm not talking charging stations, but the backbone of the grid)
All that is missing to make BEV as convenient as ICE cars is cheaper batteries (they're working on it) and more charging stations. Charging stations are dirt cheap compared to hydrogen fueling stations. They are as little as $1000/each for a respectable 240V 100A (24kw) level 2 circuit. 120kw superchargers are about $10k/stall. If you really wanted to scale up, you could train a competent electrician to do it in about 4 hours, and there are hundred of thousands of licensed electricians in the US.
Where are you going to find that many competent people to work with hydrogen? It's not just the stations you have to build out, but think of the massive amount of hydrogen generation equipment that would be needed.
There aren't really any other large scale uses for hydrogen, so there isn't a big installed base to work with. You'd have to start from scratch.
Even if you did, at the end of the day, the consumer is still a slave to the gas companies. They have to either pay up or walk. All that has happened is that they've replaced one addiction with another. (I can see who the oil companies might get a woody thinking about this, but as a consumer it doesn't do anything for me...)
Call my cynical but the 2nd Bush administration had deep ties to Texas Oil. These are the people who gave working class contractors a special tax break to buy a Hummer for their business then stood back and let them jack the price of gas to $5/gal.
They saw hybrid cars as a threat to their oil profits so they pushed fuel cells as a diversion. The real purpose is to divide and conquer alternative energy.
I bet the dealers pushing that change are overwhelmingly republican. The state legislature in both NY and NJ are democratic, but don't go getting all gloaty until they do something as boneheaded and obviously corrupt as what the Republican Christie just did.
Some mb attendees must be spoon fed:)
Type the sentence into yahoo or goole search, and you see that it is true, one source is an article by Antony Ingram of green car reports.
No need for that. It's far more practical to just surround NJ with dealerships on Staten Island & Spring Valley, NY and somewhere a bit north of Philadelphia.
New Jersey just isn't that big. Pushing the dealerships across the border just means NJ loses the sales tax revenue.
My in-laws live on Staten Island and we helped them buy a new Camry in New Jersey a few years back, but after this crass strong-arm move, we'll make sure to keep the next purchase in New York. (we'll also lobby our 3 brothers & sisters in law who live in New Jersey to buy new cars for their families out of state too.
Wrong. There were no laws or rules against what Tesla is doing in New Jersey before. They already gave them 2 dealership licenses. They caved to pressure from the ICE dealers and changed the rules -- without bothering with the formality of getting a law passed -- so they could deny Tesla a renewal of their license.
What amazes me is how this is not a violation of separation of powers. I know in the federal government it's a big no-no. The legislature makes the rules and the administration implements them. But the administration can only ask for laws it likes to be passed. It can't go changing the rules unilaterally.
Maybe the NJ constitution says the governor is king. Or maybe Christie is just a power-mad #$%$ who doesn't care about the formality of laws.
So if you just put a question mark you can post whatever lie you want. Apple just purchased tesla?
