http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-03-07/fact-check-does-corolla-emit-less-than-tesla/9461096 Machiavellian's need jail- misleading the public on matters of public interest in this way that appears to be intentional bought and paid for misrepresentation (understood this may be construed as speech quelling and is a slippery slope) should lead to some sort of prosecution. Somewhere such people are either compromised with a hook in their arse at risk of exposure or on the take or both. Instead of the prosecution we need we have this bribery culture where bribery is supposed to be a mitigating factor not a damning one. If this person thinks the emissions are less with a Corolla maybe he would be happy trying to breath off the respective tail pipes. Breathing the Corolla exhaust even sans the heat pollution would be instant death. He should have been asked if he would care to directly inhale the Corolla exhaust or if he would prefer it to the Tesla's exhaust- clue on this is the non existent exhaust pipe. Or which he thought in practice was more of a problem the Corolla where as Musk has commented you sit their and smoke tail pipe in traffic or the what comes out of a Tesla- even in the use case where it comes out of a smoke stake more than 100 ft high from a still dirty grid. Maybe he would care to comment on the CO2 content in grams of CO2 of a Tesla that uses the intended battery plus roof top solar at home for all or the vast majority of its charging or where the Tesla owner buys from the grid through a contractual arrangement (as you can in CA) only power that's been sent over super conducting lines from 100% wind or renewable mix (dirty biomass excluded- claims or carbon neutrality still take up arable land and are temporarily dirty and imply radically more wasteful machinery and heat waste and other pollutants etc- even with alcohol.) Or where the Tesla is produced in factories like the giga factory where plant is fully powered by (or very soon to be) %100 re-newables. Sorry the continued existence of the petrol fuel industry is criminal, its is not a matter of pointing at green hypocrisy its a matter of getting rid of an enemy (for a long time now) of humanity as fast as humanely possible. First we get rid of it especially using the power of tax (carbon tax,) education and proper green subsides while eliminating petrol subsidies (it dies right there) and then we ban it (as is increasingly happening city by city) but we then produce a total ban (Norway and others having slated time limits,) and then we criminalize its use applying civil penalties and then we seek actual reparational costs (totally foreseeable) as NY and CA are doing and then we prosecute where there is resistance and finally we go for Nuremberg style prosecution and hold those accountable for genocidal petrol bailouts wars accountable where profit is a hugely aggravating factor- we do this while they are alive so we accelerate this and we go after their fortunes tracking it all down cutting through trusts etc just as with Nazi gold. Oh this is cutting the right's money- should have happened a long time ago. Then we produce proper history that groups the petrol pushers with the 3rd Reich- its a terrorist industry putting the survival of humanity at risk. If Iraq's oil has been stored in the ground in Texas- we ship it back charging the companies and families that benefited. Also need to make these companies that installed the pipelines like Keystone pay to dismantle them- injuct them where they resist. We also correct the record on what petrol has done to the US- it has for instance driven nuclear proliferation and hollowed out the public sector and the people's prosperity and standard of living while radically increasing the security risks to the American people. Do this all over the next 10 years. One more thing- we need carbon trackers on our products including our financial products that read like an ingredient label and are easier to use than the new automated calorie counters, that rank products on sites like Amazon by this factor along with the traditional price and review sorting orders. Every product on Amazon needs a carbon content. Every financial product needs to show full exposure to petrol and carbon content. With regard to pension funds of every form it needs to be financial malpractice to invest in petrol fuel energy stocks or investments as the assets are both politically and economically stranded and the industry is already concretely bankrupt. Tariffs meant to shield the petrol industry should be met with corresponding tariffs on petrol imports- especially with regard to US petrol exports as the US must be held to the Paris accord and should be financially divesting petrol- it should be shielding financial institutions from petrol derivative obligations- liquidating these derivative contractual debt obligations them vice considering ultra stupid bail-ins to bail-out dead and useless petrol yet again. This stuff is just obvious common sense. Also, there should be no shielding on petrol derivatives opacity, they need to be made fully transparent and auditable- vice the current laws that make this illegal- they are worse than junk bonds and that needs to be obvious to everyone including the public.
