It's high time our gov't starts moving our society forward toward what is inevitable.....the 21st century energy revolution - EVs, solar/wind, and battery storage.

haha, can't make this shit up folks. Can we just skip this whole "the fossil fuel industry is collapsing what are we going to do!?!" phase?

Tesla is about to ramp up production even more here and China is moving along quite nicely.

It would provide 7% of the city's electricity beginning in 2023 at a cost of 1.997 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) for the solar power and 1.3 cents per kWh for the battery. That's cheaper than any power generated with fossil fuel.

How do you juxtapose that? That was the supercar of the day.

EM: It was. Now the Model 3 performance can beat it. I do think that the McLaren F1 was an incredible design, and for a gasoline car it's amazing. It's a piece of art, that car, for sure. I mean, it's aesthetically stunning, using state-of-the-art carbon fiber technology; the architecture is brilliant for F1. But when you go to electric, it's just a fundamentally superior technology. You've got physics on your side. You've got Isaac Newton as your co-pilot; he's helpful. So the Performance Model S, the McLaren the F1 is 50 percent slower 0-60 than the Performance Model S. Fifty percent. That's insane. And it's a four-door sedan that can seat up to seven. So you could probably put seven people and full luggage and still beat a McLaren F1.

We'll try and validate that.

EM: Yeah, should work. A equals F over M. Yeah, F's big.
