Tesla just changed everything


#741

The Big Battery made a lot of sense and fullfilled a more potent purpose in SA being at the end of the line (Grid).

Already kicked in and saved them tripping out into blackouts twice,


#742

And of course Blitz threads never ever wander from how they started.

You have derailed quite a few yourself over the years.


#743

Guilty as charged


#744

Because they wern’t in a pile of poo politically, and the opportunity to shift the blame for any further blackouts didn’t arrive with a Musk tweet.

It is good that it worked and I believe it has worked to drive down peek power prices (the type that companies run expensive generators that probably run 3-4 days a year in total to capatalise on), but if you think innovative green power solutions were what drove the Government’s decision to implement it…


#745

Yep, it’s a total tear down

To be honest News’s efforts to do this actually vindicate to me that assness aside he’s probably doing something really good overall

#747

News.com is probably one of Murdoch’s most insidious ventures in the news space.

Yep, for a genius he does some dumb ■■■■.

What I find quite perculiar though, as the evidence mounts that he behaves like a capitalist ahead of an environmentalist, why is it the conservatives are wanting to hang him out to dry?


#750

Because Tesla’s are for soyboys


#751

Because he behaves like a ■■■■?


#752

They are capitalists and Elon is a business rival, who is trying to disrupt their industry and siphon off their market share.


#753

It may have escaped your attention but Elon Musk is a capitalist.


#754

No, I am aware of that


#755

The blackouts caused by the closing down of coal fired power stations.


#756

Ahhh, … No stupid.


#757

All businessmen are capitalists, until they want a subsidy or a grant or a bailout


#758

Yep. good ol’ USA free range Capos & their catch cry of let the free market rule , until they cheat working people out of Billions and lose everything,… except their own stash of course - then put their hands out for a Tax payer funded bail out and it’s all good suddenly to Socialise the Big Banks.

Carnts, every last one of them. Put twenty in a package deal, still not worth 2 knobs of goal shitt.


#759

He did snub Trump.


#760

Musk is another robber baron. True. The fossil fuel shitlords don’t like him for obvious reasons. He’s threatening to do what they’ve tried to prevent for years.
