The Greatest Scam In History

November 14th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

It’s a tale for all time. What might be the greatest scam in history or, at least, the one that threatens to take history down with it. Think of it as the climate-change scam that beat science, big time


Tesla Gigafactory Economies of Scale Just Starting to Show in Tesla Financials

November 9th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The biggest threat to Tesla’s existence has not been the so-called “Tesla Killers” from the competition, but rather Tesla’s dependence on the capital markets to fund its growth.

November 7th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Elon Musk has often come in for criticism because of missed deadlines, over-ambitious forecasts, and, in a few cases, unfulfilled promises. It’s true that production dates for the company’s vehicles have often slipped, many owners are unhappy about delays in delivering Full Self-Driving capability, and the New York-to-Los Angeles driverless Odyssey, originally planned for late 2017, has yet to take place. Musk himself has admitted that he’s always had problems with timelines


How Hard Is It To Do What Tesla Has Done? Very.

November 6th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

How hard can it be to build a great electric car? After all, a Silicon Valley startup, founded by a group of engineers with little or no experience in the auto industry, managed to produce a blockbuster automobile in a mere 10 years, and has now become the USA’s most valuable automaker.

Two Solar-Powered Teslas

November 1st, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

In late 2012, I went to the Miami International Auto Show and had my first experience in a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). My brother-in-law and I took a ride in a Fisker Karma inside the Miami Beach Convention Center. It was an amazing opportunity to experience the future of transport, as we glided silently through a short indoor track

Some of Tesla's fastest all-electric sedans recently faced down a powerful contender on an abandoned airport runway (turned into a drag strip). The contender? The feared Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Racers call it the F12B — a 730 hp beast fitted with a 6.3L V12 engine


Sustainable Paper’s Best Kept Secret: Biogas

October 29th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Having spent 17 years working at a paper plant in a wide variety of roles, I am passionate about finding and sharing solutions for industries built around fossil fuels. The papermaking process is extremely energy intensive and requires thermal energy to dry paper, making it a challenging nut to crack. The path taken by Rolland to clean up its energy footprint is encouraging for the papermaking industry and serves as a model for other gas-consuming industries

October 26th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The Tesla Model S and Model X have one of the best high-efficiency particulate matter (HEPA) air filters in the entire automotive industry.
