Maybe You Should Buy Tesla [TSLA] Stock Instead Of Toilet Paper (Video)

March 23rd, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

I'm one of the extremely lucky ones on this planet to have been sent home with full pay during this coronavirus pandemic. I sit in the quiet isolation of my home and watch the world through my digital tools, and I'm puzzled by what I see — on many levels — ranging from toilet paper to trading stocks


Elon’s Ventilators & N95 Masks Can’t Come Quickly Enough

March 23rd, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

Elon Musk's ventilators and N95 masks can't come quickly enough. The other day, I woke up to two news stories, one from The Advocate and one from CleanTechnica. The Advocate reported harrowing news, while CleanTechnica gave us a bit of hope. Here in Louisiana, our doctors and nurses are out of protective gear and fear they are infecting patients. Not to mention themselves. This is why the good news that CleanTechnica reported -- Elon's plans to deliver thousands of ventilators and hundreds of thousands of masks -- brings a touch of relief. Hopefully, some of our hospitals can get some of those masks


Tesla/SpaceX-Provided Masks & Ventilators … Tesla Model Y Tidbits … VW ID.3 Launch — CleanTechnica Top 20

March 22nd, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica articles of the past week, naturally, included a few pieces related to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic that's shutting down half the world. Otherwise, hot topics were the Tesla Model Y (have to wonder how much this vehicle would dominate some portions of the news and public consciousness if not for COVID-19), the Volkswagen ID.3 and overall ID lineup/strategy, and other EV and Tesla news and analyses


Elon Musk: Should Have 1000 Ventilators Next Week, + 250,000 N95 Masks For Hospitals Tomorrow — CleanTechnica Exclusive

March 21st, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel said on MSNBC on Friday, March 20, that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk told him it would probably take 8–10 weeks to get ventilator production started at his factories (he's working on this at Tesla and SpaceX). I reached out to Musk for clarification on that topic and he replied that, "We have 250k N95 masks. Aiming to start distributing those to hospitals tomorrow night. Should have over 1000 ventilators by next week."


“We Will Make Ventilators,” Elon Musk Promises — NYC Will Be One Buyer

March 19th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

“We will make ventilators if there’s a shortage,” Elon Musk said on Twitter last night. From my perspective, this is why we love Elon Musk. He cares about humanity and wants to help. The swift response on Twitter was that there was a shortage. In fact, "THERE IS A SHORTAGE" (in all caps like that) quickly rose to the top of Twitter's trending topics


The Economist: Tesla’s Tech “Leaves Rivals in the Dust”

March 14th, 2020 | by Matt Pressman

In 2017, The Economist declared the internal combustion engine "roadkill" on a controversial cover, claiming, "it had a good run. But the end is in sight." For the conservative publication, this was a bold statement. Fast forward to 2020 and now Britain's financial pub points to Tesla as the carmaker to look out for as the industry transitions to electric
