I’m late to the party, but for some reason I’m taking a liking to Elon Musk and the Tesla Products.
I’ve been watching developments of Tesla batteries, power walls, but not their vehicles. Well the cyber truck got my attention.
For reasons unknown to me I’ve warmed to the CEO Elon Musk. He reminds me of a best mate who died recently. He was also born with a spoon in the feeding slot and lived in the house of tomorrow. But this guy seems genuine and the Tesla products are everything we hoped for in our past darker years. Long life batteries, energy from the sun. The hippy dream was once candles and outside fires, minimal footprint as we stomped around the countryside in smokey old recks, looking for jack plug points for the electric guitar. We had it all, except affordable, portable technology. Times change hippies are evolving, fision, fusion, next to zero carbon are duplicating the hippy renewable mantra.
Everything about the Tesla concept appears to float my boat and it’s not Chinese.
This guy Elon seems young and hopefully the years ahead of him will benefit all of us facing a future without our tried and tested diesel rigs which we cherish. We have excepted technology into our lives freely, but the material tech has come with a price tag, not only to acquire, but to maintain and use.
Some of the technical developments like LED lighting, Solar panels, computers, tablets, smartphones have revolutionised not only industry and science, but life on boats, vehicles, and in homes. The future battery storage, and propulsion of vehicles will make a hugue difference to our lives, especially as energy seems to be increasing in our demands and it’s cost.
What am I not seeing in this Tesla company developments? I’m seeing mega factories in Countries like USA and Australia, along with mining operations for battery minerals.
