Published on YouTube Aug 29, 2013: Elon Musk on global warming aka climate change (10/11/2011).

Meet Elon Musk. He co-founded PayPal, runs an electric car company, and builds space rockets. Despite all that, he barely needs any evidence to prove why we need to act on climate change. Those climate change deniers are afraid of him, and they should be. URL

    I don’t believe global warming is man made but I like what Elon Musk is
    doing to make energy sustainable. The problem I have with most Global
    Warming alarmist is their attempt to force their world view onto theres.
    Its not enough to try to convince others that theres a better way. They use
    force by punishing ppl with regulations and taxes. In the Free Market,
    better ideas win. If solar is better, it will naturally win. This is where
    Elon Musk is doing a good job. He has made solar make sense

    It could destroy the planet and you think theyre doing it because they want
    to “force their world view” on people? You know what if I saw that someone
    was about to destroy the planet I would definitely use force. And this is
    not a free market problem where did you get that idea? Its a science
    problem and in science, correct conclusions win. And you know what just
    answer me this honestly why don’t you believe global warming is man made?
    What facts do you base that on?

    Of all the men ever lived, this is the one that really can and really is
    going to save our planet. Why not a government? Why not a multinational? If
    all of the worlds governments met and agreed to order All of their car
    making companies to stop making combustion engines within 3 months and
    change over to electric vehicles (ALL vehicles, not just cars), Our
    beautiful amazing planet would be saved from the horrific disaster to which
    everyone else now seems to be slowly coming to terms with and accepting as
    inevitable. Madness!!! Absolute Madness!!!! Make Elon King of our Earth,
    and worship him. He is ‘The One’. He is The only One. No one else comes
    anywhere near close. Nor does any government, nor does any company. Did
    Aliens send him? To save our planet from ruin and destruction? Most likely
    not. But if they did do such a thing and didn’t want us to know, how
    different would that alien be? He is my God! He can have both my kidneys or
    my heart anytime. With pleasure. I love this man.

    Genius to recognize what is important, balls to follow through. Elon Musk
    is my hero. In a world with no hero’s, he’s mine.

    Robert Lutz is literally walking satire. At first I genuinely thought this
    was a super-villain movie.

    @outforsushi Better idea? In a free market, the “better” product is the one
    that is the most profitable. Profits do not not take into account
    sustainability or environmental concerns, but scarcity is very profitable.
    Gas is a finite resource, and the scarcer is gets, the more expensive it
    gets, and the more profits roll in. Global warming alarmists? If you don’t
    like regulations, then try living in smog filled China then; Don’t forget
    your filter mask. You need to read up on history and the origin of the EPA.
    A lot of good came about from the industrial revolution, but when your
    drinking water is so contaminated that it catches on fire, something needs
    to be done. And businesses won’t do anything unless it effects their bottom
    line; so as long as dumping is cheaper than proper waste disposal, they
    tend to go the cheaper route. There is no morality in free market
    capitalism. It is not some god to be worship because money will some how
    sort out what’s best for everyone, and yes everyone. Humans have become too
    numerous to think that the earth is their property to exploit for money
    regardless of the consequences to others or to the Earth as a whole. Who
    wants to be king of an Earth that’s unfit for human survival?

    If 1% is not enough to cook the planet, try injecting your kid/s with 1% of
    pure radiation into their blood stream. If it doesn’t bother you, them
    we’re good…if not…than that’s how bad the situation is.
