For some reason I thought this thread was in the lounge, which is where continued discussion about this should live, in its own thread.

I will say that propagating false information is not illegal, even if it is intentionally misleading. I'm not sure what disinformation you refer to, but if it has to do with burning fossil fuels, it's undeniable that exploiting petroleum products has been a massive net positive for humanity, and continues to be despite the associated negative externalities.

Tesla has some serious obstacles to overcome to remaining viable. One of which is the continued, relatively cheap price of fuel, and the continued relative expense and shortcomings of battery technology.

I wonder why they choose to stick with cylindrical cells when all other manufacturers seem to go with prismatic? I can't see cylindrical cells being the future of battery technology.
