Elon Musk of Tesla Motors has produced some very, very expensive electric cars and some moderately expensive electric cars, and may be on the verge of introducing a remarkable $35,000 electric vehicle. Check online PC magazine for an article.
And Tech Crunch has another perspective on the name:
And finally, The Dailly Beast tosses in the Wall Street view "Market aspects of Tesla Love".
Elon Musk and his Tesla Motors may be demonstrating the economic spinoffs possible with increased emphasis on energy not necessarily reliant on fossil fuels. The US pisses $billions away on military boondoggles trying to change 14 Century old mythology, wars, and religions in the mideast and more on weapons designed to again fight the cold war with the latest version of the Soviet Union and the Chinese Dragon.
And, the retrograde Republican tools of the fossil-fuels industry have or are trying to prevent the US military industrial complex from working on so-called "green" energy. And they are busy pandering to the religious freaks who think only their GOD influences climate on Earth, or Mars, or Venice, etc for all the other billion year old parts of the universe.
Meanwhile California is drying up and New York City and Florida may be on the edge of major flooding.
Better vehicles not burning fossil fuels are more important than we may now realize.
