    I suppose fracking oil is more environmentally friendly than mining lithium? Who’s more intelligent Brian Sussman or Elon Musk? EV’s are the future. You will go down in history as a footnote on Wikipedia as a quack who disliked electric cars.
    I only could stomach about 4 minutes of your podcast BTW.

      You’re making a ridiculous argument. By the way, I don’t dislike electric cars, per se, I just love really cool cars with tricked-out combustion engines.
      As for my podcast, you are clearly in the minority. If you would have listened further you might have been educated.
      Meantime, hope you have a nice day.

    The point of the article was to illustrate how the Tesla is hardly a “green” vehicle.

    Tesla/space x are the quintessential American frauds. This means they are not based on outright lies but on gross exaggerations and wishful thinking backed by great PR and propaganda. Many previous American frauds like invasion of Iraq and the exaggeration of American military capability to trump business are based on this layout.

    Musk is basically a welfare king. Now, there is nothing wrong with that and most breakthroughs have happened through government backing. But musk is a private man and often implies that he is spending money through his own pocket which he obviously is not. Also, he has not actually put forward any tech breakthrough till now and is famous only for promising things which have not been done.

    Keep in mind, without subsidies Tesla would be like Solyndra (the phony solar panel company you exposed years ago, Brian).
