A major failing of the conservative Republican base in the United States is in trying to change or dismiss scientific findings as a means to fit the conservative ideology, instead of using scientific findings to help define policy that is consistent with the conservative ideology. This type of failing is what makes the more socialist Democratic base a "necessary evil", if you will, to keep the conservative Republican base in check. Where Republicans, capitalism, and the free market fail, Democrats must step in with government regulation. If, as a conservative, you can trust in the findings of science, even when it is inconvenient, then you have to recognize the significant threat of climate change. The science is pretty solid, and the risks are extreme. If you can accept that something must be done, or at least that enough people will believe that something must be done, then what is the best a conservative could hope for? That companies could find a way within our free market to build products that people want, and that solve the problem. What better than a company that is revolutionizing transport and energy with desirable products that solve the problem? What better than Tesla? Sure, Tesla takes advantage of some available government incentives; what company wouldn't? It's still doing most of it own it's own through the free market. Conservatives should be championing this company, what it has accomplished, and what it may accomplish in the future. You want this company to succeed. For if they fail, the eventual result will be exactly the types of socialist government regulation you wish to avoid. And believe it or not, those who would implement such regulation would rather not have to. Cheer for Tesla. Buy Tesla if you can. It's in everyone's best interest.
