    If you RTWT -- nothing much. It's a very straightforward process of individual and family contact, and the changing of generations (rather faster in monkeys than humans; they are mature by about 4-5 yrs old.) Communication and interaction and opinion-change and so on is mightily facilitated among humans by language, and now by digital memory and sharing.

    No monkeys required. Or "morphogenic fields".

    Just wanted to tell you why I think it's cheated, but I agree that even with the small batery it's probably the best electric car out there. It just wouldn't work for me.

    You forgot two words.

    "Or not."

    Actually, he's suggesting that the shareholders are making that bet, but he won't follow them.

    If the post-June reservation rate holds, there would be about 17K reservations still by Dec. 31. I anticipate the new res-rate will climb even more as more vehicles get out into the public, and into the hands of the stores. Their demo drives won't be limited to 12 minutes, and the effects will perhaps be dramatic.

    He needn't make that admission or concession. The warming, such as it is, is in the Central and Eastern Lower 48, and nowhere else in the world*. If it moves offshore, or goes away, he may be quite happy to have his 4WD!

    * Eurasia and the whole Southern Hemisphere -- and Alaska -- roll their eyes and cuss when they hear/read about "Global = US Warming" this summer.

    Not to drag the thread off topic but global temps have been rising over time, and certainly locally we have much milder winters with less snow than we used to.

    Curious where you are getting your data? State of the Climate | Global Analysis | June 2012 The National Climatic Data Center states that June was the warmest on record around the world with significant warmth seen in Russia, Europe (GB and Scandinavia excluded) and Latin America. It does show GB and Australia to be cooler than normal but over the globe the hot spots far out number the cold ones.

    We should move any further Energy & Environment discussion over to that forum.

    To pre-empt the next poll...

    I vote that we create two new posts in some easy-to-ignore sub-forum...
    • Global Warming Gibberish
    • Global Warming Reality
    ... and move all posts on either topic to one of those two threads.

    The closer Tesla comes to positive cash flow and profitabilty, the softer is critizism becomes. Sounds like he's covering his tracks.

    Just ha a weird thought: What if the Super Charger announcement includes the fact that the stations will have a huge battery, lead-acid, made by ... Axion! Axion stock (PINK:AXPW) is up 9% today. This article Beleaguered Battery Maker Soon to Get a Jolt was posted by JP on thestreet.com yesterday (with the following interesting quote: Since a big chunk of my personal fortune is tied up in Axion...).

    Though in the big scheme of thing, it seems Axion is not doing too well = JP's "personal fortune" neither :)

    I think he's lost all credibility with SeekingAlpha readers and is looking for a new audience. He has adapted his style as well, gone is the "mathematically challenged"...at least for now.

    Yeah. Definitely different writing style. No name calling just trying to paint himself as an objective observer which he obviously is not.

    More likely to be Tesla's own batteries, since they are in production now, and Axion is still in the early phases and something of an unknown.
