Did Norway give Tesla a big win? Elon Musk thinks so
When the impact of climate change gets really bad (and we're not far from that point) this may be a pattern worldwide. Let's hope.The sooner we end fossil fuel consumption the better.
Whats interesting is that 25% of their economy is Natural Gas and Oil production. I guess they are planning for the future..
No domestic car industry to protect helps. Also note this is a rumored proposed bill. There is virtually 0% probability that it will be signed in to law that sales of new cars that burn diesel or petrol is forbidden starting 2025. But it is highly likely Norway will have the most restrictions on sales of those kinds of cars in less than 10 years.
Norway can sell more of their oil and earn foreign exchange right away, and use their surplus clean hydropower to run their cars. It is truly an immediate win-win for them.
I echo Elon's sentiment, Norway is an awesome country!
Norway should be careful. We've already seen this movie (actually TV series, and it's great).
Okkupert - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Norway is mostly "bleh". They were lucky in finding oil yes, but multiply this by only a slightly below average Western European cultural sophistication and you get current Norway. Now imagine if California was a country, or take some existing nationa like Germany, Japan, and imagine them finding huge quantities of oil in the 50s and 60s - they would dominate the world the way the US has for the last 100 years.
