Why Does Tesla Do Everything Better?
Google+ November 18th, 2017 by Zachary Shahan The #1 complaint about Tesla seems to be that we have to wait too long for mass production of its products. Thats sort of a sign that the company is doing things quite well. Actually, if you crunch the numbers, you can see that Tesla cars offer more range, better performance, better interior tech, better semi-autonomous driving features, and more door pocketsbetter charging options than the competition.

As Norway sells out of oil, suddenly fossil fuels are starting to look risky
Despite the rise of electric cars and stronger action on climate change, its still too early to write the obituary of oil. That was the verdict last week of one of the worlds leading energy experts, economist DrFatih Birol. The International Energy Agency, which he leads, is expecting growth in appetite for oil to slow over the next two decades, but doesnt see demand peaking this side of 2040 because the fuel will still be needed for trucks, ships, aviation and petrochemicals.

I added the pic to the article when I woke up & got rolling here in Europe, but I expect that most readers dont go refreshing CleanTechnica articles theyve already read. Additionally, as you may have noticed, EV charging station design is a huge focus of interest for me these days and Im not particularly happy with whats typically installed around the world.
