Read my investment DISCLAIMER here first.
I’m a big believer in Tesla.
I’ve even added some of their shares to my kids’ long-term college beer fund so convinced am I that they are the next Apple Inc.
Thanks to the Visual Capitalist’s latest infographic,
I now remember exactly why I did that.
Ok, so Tesla haven’t exactly made a profit yet.
These guys are on the side of the great and the good.
And one day in the not too distant future, I hope we will all look back and think,
“Did we really drive around such dirty, noisy, polluting cars?”
Hopefully, petrol engines will be reserved for specialist purposes and die-hard petrol heads,
who will rightly be taxed heavily in order to carry on being allowed to pollute the air we breathe.
Sure we will need new power plants to generate the electricity to power our cars,
but, with a mixture of micro-generation (home solar panels), large scale renewables and cleaner traditional generation,
my hope is that our air will return to something akin to pre-industrial era cleanliness within a few decades.
Think that’s all a little too far fetched?
See what the German government is passing laws on here, regarding phasing out the internal combustion engine.
For those that can,
let’s start making changes now.
Let’s support a cleaner future.
But don’t just take my word for it,
when the billionaires get into it, you know it’s time to get some.
