“MR. MUSK: The ideal thing to do would be to tax CO2. But taxes are difficult to implement. So, we’re doing an indirect thing, which is to subsidize electric cars to some degree, and other sort of renewables.”
Electric cars are not renewable. You can use anything to make electricity, oil, diesel, coal, mice running a treadmill. Just because you don’t see the generator from which the electricity comes does not make an electric car a renewable. What a twit.
