Everything I'm reading on this shows renewables were responsible for 20% while natural gas, nuclear and coal were responsible for 80% of the missing electricity in their grid. I find it interesting none of the Scandinavian countries or even mid-west ... more »

Amazon is building warehouses all over the country. I wouldn’t doubt if over 90% the population in America has an Amazon warehouse just as close now. Before Covid, I was noticing a lot of new Dollar General store being built in very rural areas. It seemed ... more »

I have a Chase Sapphire Reserve and Amex Delta Reserve. Both cards have a ≈500 annual fee but once you add the benefits back in, they easily pay for their annual fees. On top of that, the Chase Sapphire Reserve card has the best points program in the ... more »

There is reason Polaris owns around 70% of the total SxS market. While their reliability is arguably lower than their competitors, they far exceed their competitors in features, performance and fit and finish of accessories.

I agree with this. The big issue often overlooked is building machines comes with a lot of liability and when there are distractions, the risk of error increases. The last thing a DP wants or needs to deal with is a lawsuit because a unit was assembled ... more »

Lex Fridman did a 4 hour podcast with him on September 8th. I haven’t listened to it yet but it’s queued up next for me.

It’ll be the same way we look at people that lived without refrigeration, HVAC and smoked cigarettes today. The other big pollutant not talked about nearly enough is our dependence on plastic. The amount of single use plastic that isn’t recycled is mind ... more »

This chart says everything. The one feature I really like about the Hummer is its removable roof panels but I would take the CyberTruck or Rivian over it in a heartbeat. P.S. I'm not sure why they chose to use a different measurement of torque ... more »

Keep in mind they are testing/building it in stages. The final ship with booster will be about 400’ tall. It was cool to see them succeed at making a silo fly during the first tests. 😂

I have a feeling most vehicles will be electric by then regardless. Driving an ev is a lot more enjoyable unless you’re towing something 700 miles at this point. This will be very similar to the dumb phone to smartphone conversion. Everyone went from ... more »

I’m not sure why so many conversations get hung up on coal when it comes to EV’s. If you look at the US grid, coal only powers 23% of it. Coal is also down 30% since 2017 alone. This trend will continue as most coal plants in the US have phase out or ... more »

Here’s Tesla’s annual environmental impact report if you’re interested Tesla is one of the leading sellers of solar, so they are trying to do their part. This year they reduced their solar arrays to below market average prices in hopes of growing that portion of their business. The dirtiest electrical grid in the ... more »

Batteries are recyclable. Tesla for instance recycles close to 100% of their batteries and yesterday announced they will bring it in-house soon.

The amount of renewables have increased substantially since 2015 and will continue to grow exponentially over the next 10 years. The beauty of electric vehicles is they don’t emit more emissions with time. They should emit less due to the grid moving ... more »

If you prefer to record shows and skip through commercials, YouTubeTV is the best option from my experience.
