barc0001: libranoelrose: I'll never understand the hate, I guessPeople fear change, even if it's a positive change. At the end of the day, humans are still just dumb animals deep down inside.
itsaidwhat: I'm not disagreeing. I'm only pointing out that electric devices rely on energy that has to be delivered by some natural resource. In this case, lithium (and probably the nickel too) which was a valuable byproduct of the nuclear defense industry history.
mdeesnuts: anfrind: If all human progress were the result of privately funded research, we'd still be sitting in caves trying to decide if rocks are edible.I'm all for government funded research, but that is one of the dumbest things I've read all week.
AverageAmericanGuy: Jacobin: That's why I won't buy one. Gasoline isn't flammable so I know my car will never catch on fireI don't know where you learned that, but it's totally wrong. Gasoline is very flammable.
jshine: Corvus: I always don't understand the hate for new technology. People just want to attack things because they are afraid of change....2) if you ran out of "fuel" in an awkward location (yes, yes, this should never happen, I know), there is no way to bring fuel to the car; you'd have to tow it to an outlet
ggecko: And if this was any other car it wouldn't even make it to the press.
Marcus Aurelius: If every Tesla Roadster that ever left the factory caught fire, I'd still want one.
DarkSoulNoHope: There should be an investigation, but to the Republicans it doesn't matter, even if the results came out positively for the Tesla company. If it isn't an oil distillate powered vehicle, than it doesn't belong on the road in their opinion, because that would hurt the profits of oil companies that they support over the attempts to investigate alternative, less damaging ways to generate energy.
MindStalker: Road debris? The driver running over an I-Beam that shot through the floor at I hear over 10 tons of force isn't "Road Debris".
