    Unless, of course, you recharge at one of these:

    Makes no difference whatsoever. Tesla model S is still at best a 35 mpg-equivalent car, and for the most part quite a bit less than 35 mpg.

    I suspect you do not possess the knowledge to understand why this is the case, but if you are interested you can always search on patrick.net for the answer.

    So you are saying I can possess knowledge by searching on Patrick.net? That's pretty funny.

    How can a car that runs completely on solar power emit more CO2 than a hybrid?

    BTW, I do understand your point about pure electric being less efficient than hybrid. In the USA this varies based on location and time of year. And because it is a small company, the fact that it is not as efficient as a hybrid in some cases, really has a miniscule environmental impact.

    But Tesla is showing clearly that with the right commitment to renewable energy production, our need for fossil fuels can be reduced dramatically despite what the oil consortium would like us to believe.

    Anyway, Musk's plans are to get homes off the grid. The car is just a way to get noticed and get funding for the battery factory.

    Since every successful capitalist on the planet benefits from cronyism the answer is "who cares?".

    The Fuck they do

    Let me qualify that -- I'm not talking mom & pop type capitalists -- I'm speaking of the club of which Musk currently resides. My point is that if you are successful enough to use your money via lobbying/bribery to get favors, you do.

    I realize "successful capitalist" was too vague.

    the question is, is he smart with or without cronyism?
