Musk can go turn the nuclear industry up side down because that is the only technology in existence that can reduce CO2 production on a large scale when used to replace coal fired power plants.
Go push forward molten salt thorium reactors.

If he partners with Taylor Wilson, that could very well happen.

The cool thing about the design is that if you turn it upside down and launch it on a (SpaceX) rocket cold you can drain the salts into the reactor at the top of it's boost phase.

With stock, the risk is spread over many people, so that (at least if one diversifies), the loss from any single failure is small.

Second, that puts all the profit in the pockets of the few large lenders. With stocks (and mutual funds &c) those profits, like the risks, can be spread over a large number of small investors.

Finally, those small investors need not have large chunks of capital lying around in order to start reaping the benefits of investing.

Another new feature unique to Teslas...

Of course the main objective of cars is to bring you from A to B, but cars can do so much more.
Yet, until recently some things were difficult. What if you need an nice romantic fireplace in the car or want to startle your passengers with a whoopie cushion? How would you do that in your car?

Tesla to the rescue!
https://electrek.co/2018/12/17/tesla...pp-easter-egg/

Would I need it? No.
Do I want it? Why, yes!

Come to think of it, it's a safety feature.
You can tell people over and over again that AutoPilot is not a full-featured self driving tool; you remain responsible and must focus on the road, ready to act when needed.
But people will see AutoPilot does well most of the time and start to trust it blindly nonetheless.

But maybe less so if it farts... Would you trust a farting car to steer for you?

I must say that I have immensely enjoyed both romance and emissions testing mode in the Tesla. Completely unnessary, but absolutely FUN.
