Does Range Anxiety Affect Gas Car Drivers More Than Tesla Drivers?

Published on July 18th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Editor's note: Aside from the points made in the article below, something that I think non-Tesla drivers can't appreciate (until they experience it in a Tesla) is Tesla's navigation system for road trips. The brilliant navigation system plans out your trip and tells you where to charge and for how long. I drove a Model S from Poland to Paris and back, and my conclusion after (or during) the trip was that this navigation system actually made the journey simpler and less stressful than it would have been in a gasoline or diesel vehicle...

Tesla Recalibrates Model 3 Pricing & Adds Long Range Option For Aussie Customers

Published on July 17th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Tesla just rolled out a series of updates to the Model 3 configurator that lowered prices across the board in many countries. The new change was accompanied by a flip flop on the base color of all of Tesla's vehicles — from black to "pearl white." It is now an extra $750 to add black but no extra charge to choose white.

Oceans Need Geoengineering, Not The Atmosphere

Published on July 17th, 2019 | by Michael Barnard

Solar geoengineering is a bandaid on the symptoms, not a cure for the causes. It's like putting out the fires caused by an arsonist wandering around with a flamethrower instead of confiscating and shutting off the flamethrower itself. Global heating would slow and stabilize if we stopped forcing more CO2 into the system. But it's unclear if that's as true for oceanic carbon uptake... Read More
