On the news of the Hertz and Tesla partnership, Tesla passes $1 trillion in market cap. Making it more valuable than every other car company combined. To the haters of Elon Musk, I'm talking to you. You can come at my man for his tweets about taking the company private, or the Solar City deal, his missing of targets, the progress of autopilot- valid criticisms for sure. But zoom out. He's created the first successful car company in several decades. He's kicked the world's car companies in the ass- they had no interest in going electric before Tesla. His vehicles are literally the safest on the road. Tesla has open sourced their patents. Listen to any of the Tesla shareholder meetings, their north star is moving humanity to sustainable energy as quickly as possible. More than any other company on the planet, Tesla is moving the needle against climate change. Not just with vehicles, but with solar and grid scale battery storage. You going vegan and turning your lights off doesn't do shit. And the reason you think it does is because BP, an oil and gas company, ran a campaign several years back convincing us all tackling climate change was a matter of personal responsibility. The problem is far too big. The world shut down in 2020 due to Covid, and collective emissions dropped only 5%. That's nothing. Technology is the only answer. And this is what it looks like.
