idea credit @SunCatcher Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016 I believe if there were an avenue to get a message to Donald Trump, the combined talent of this forum which does possess many informed and highly intelligent people could persuade him to go green, whilst still being in denial of climate change. I do not think it worth the effort to sway him on climate change and it could lose his interest in the remaining context of the letter. Things that might matter to trump: Comparing jobs created by solar vs coal. Cost analysis between using renewable and nonrenewable resources. Has technology matured enough that it costs less to generate electricity via renewables? (not including environment damage, health implications, climate change etc that's all fantasy in his world) How electric cars could positively impact the American economy -National power usage increase - More solar/storage to account for EV's -New factories (Ideally from multiple companies not just Tesla) - Huge for construction workers -New highly skilled jobs, engineers etc Products that can be exported Increase GDP His ego -If he is very successful with the economy and not environmentally friendly he stands to lose global and local respect. -If he is successful and green tech is a large portion of a growing America, he just might be revered as a great president after all. You don't have to believe the implications of Climate change to support green tech and watch it evolve into an extremely prosperous business. ~Wouldn't it be great if solely by pursuing profits and job growth that trump accidentally manages to meet or come close to Paris accord greenhouse gas reductions? -Does he really want to lose to China on green technologies? TLDR What can he do to grow the green tech industry and why should he. I don't know if Tesla should be a main discussion in the argument or if it should be left out entirely and just comment on the opportunities in solar/storage/EV's Is this worth pursuing? Am I correct under the assumption that green tech has finally surpassed fossil fuels? I want to do my little part to save our planet and help out our favorite company. I know there are many more eloquent than myself, if anyone wants to take a stab at it or a new format. Start adding deciding factors to the list/populating some of the questions with answers. Just maybe we can make a difference.
