Tesla share price hit $1000 let’s not forget the Mission

Tesla share price hit $1000, let’s not forget the Mission. In the world of today money makes the cogs turn and grind. We are in an unprecedented time when the world of electrification is at a pivotal point. History is knocking at the door and we as a society are starting to look and hear what that means. 

Share price rise

The COVID-19 pandemic has given the world a wakeup call to the importance of looking after the environment. One of the first helpful step is to transition gas cars to electric cars. 

Tesla Share Price

This week we saw money truly take hold with the share price of Tesla hit $1000 a share. This milestone for Tesla is important as it allowed them to become the most valuable car company across the globe. 

The significance of this milestone is profound, Tesla’s mission is all about transitioning to a sustainable future. Electrification is the method to alleviate the issues with climate change.

Tesla has made it very clear that the products they supply can and will allow for clean production, storage and use of energy. 

The share price rise is one indicator that people are starting to see that what Tesla offers and has in the new development stage is quite compelling. 

The possibilities that the Tesla vehicles possess are far ahead of any competitor. This head start is what makes TMesla a valuable asset to hold.

Recently in Australia there has been a shifting of the sands towards investigating the possibilities for electric vehicles. More car companies are starting to deliver new electric cars to the market for example, Kia, Ford and Hyundai.

The government still continues to be slow in their approach towards climate change and by extension electrification of motor vehicles. This apathy will lead to Australia falling behind the rest of the world with moving to a sustainable future. 

Tesla is just one of many companies working to bring cars to the market. They, however, differ greatly from other car manufacturers as they believe themselves to be a technology company not a Car company. 

This distinction is what allows them to be progressive and motivated to develop and grow new and compelling ideas. It is this fresh thinking that gives rise to new means of transportation, new ways of capturing and utilizing energy and unseen new ideas yet to be discovered. 

To follow the old handbook is to be left behind wondering where everyone went. It’s time to look at a new approach.

Like tesla with their dedicated mission and diversity of products it’s time to realize that helping the environment is not a one trick pony but a wholistic vision that encompasses more than just one product.

Sun cresting the Earth

To deliver a mission that encompasses many products to achieve an overall outcome seems to be the best way forward as Tesla has demonstrated. So, its important that Tesla share price hit $1000 let’s not forget the Mission that they are heading towards.

Tesla has proved that this is the way forward. I hope that when people support Tesla by buying their shares they are doing so because they want to see the mission moving forward.

The long road

The long road calls back to the long road taken to get to where I am today but to the long road to own a car that makes me feel the way I did when I first owned the Mini. I hope the Tesla will take me back to the same feeling. …

COVID 19 impact

los angeles with pollution and without

We have been sitting pretty for a while now. Clean air, beautiful beaches, clear oceans and not much else. The world has had a taste of what it is like to feel the fresh breeze on their faces and the sweet smells of spring in the air. The environment has been amazing whilst we have reduced our driving of combustion engines during the COVID 19 stay at home orders across the globe. 

However, in Australia, there is a storm brewing and it is going to set the tone for the next decade and beyond.  

The Past

100 years ago we as a society of free thinking people made a decision between electric and internal combustion engine (ICE) cars, this decision has had ramifications that most people in today’s world would deny.

Reports on news channels of large bushfires, weather patterns that are more ferocious and damaging than ever before, disease and famine in countries to dry to grow crops, all this can be related back to burning of fossil fuels.  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/04/climate/climate-change-acceleration.html

Battle Lines have been drawn between Renewables vs Fossil fuels. Fossil fuels have propped up the economy for decades and the innovative new thinking of Non-polluting Renewables is starting to show real value.

Hornsdale

One of the best examples of the non-polluting renewables is the Hornsdale Battery(https://hornsdalepowerreserve.com.au ). The Hornsdale battery has proven that non-polluting renewables can be more valuable and responsive than traditional power plants.

Examples like this are all around us we just need to be able to see through the fog of miss information and see the detail of the issue and the outcomes of the new innovative thinkers to see the benefits that it brings. 

Australian Government stance

Currently the liberal government have very clearly stated, before COVID 19 came along, that they are not as focused on the environmental impacts as they try getting the bottom line back in the black.

This was no more demonstrated by the removal of the environmental portfolio in the government ministry from the cabinet to a sub role. 

This change put a nail in many believer’s ideas about there being some progressive thinking within the government. However, COVID-19 and the stay at home management of the spread has certainly turned Australia on its ear and put it in debt to the tune of over 130 billion dollars. 

This budget deficit offers an opportunity for the government to show leadership. They have shown leadership when the management of the country was going through the shutdown but now it is time to show leadership in how we move into the future.

To help grow the economy again it is imperative that all options be considered. In doing this it is also important to look at the long term impacts both economically, politically and environmentally. 

The government in Australia has not had a good track record with their support for new innovative ideas surrounding the environment. 

As we have seen with regards to the COVID 19 virus the environment if taken for granted has a way of hitting back.

If we are to move into the next generations with the ability to hold our heads up high and be mindful of the impact we as a society have then we need to move towards non polluting renewables. 

What others are doing

Across the globe there are a number of countries which have made large strides to introduce the following elements to assist the transition with great effect. These include projects that are based upon;

  • Solar power
    • Home based 
    • Large Farms
  • Wind power
    • Ocean based wind farms
    • Land based wind farms
  • Ocean Power
    • Wave power generation
  • Battery storage
    • Home batteries
      • Tesla 
      • LG
    • Mega Batteries
      • Tesla
  • Electric vehicles
    • Ford
    • KIA
    • Porsche
    • Etc

Project like these,post COVID 19, can be the catalyst to grow industries that help to get the budget back in black faster whilst taking on the responsibility to manage the current environmental impact of fossil fuels.

The economy right now needs help to get back the losses that we have had over the last couple of months. We need fresh ideas and ways forward. This can only be achieved if the government , the people ,the innovators and business combine their resources to move Australia forward. 

tesla moving towards the future

It is important to take stock of what we have, look at how we have changed in the COVID 19 world and start to look towards helping the future generations to live a happy healthy life without pollution and pain.

The Battle Lines have been drawn between Renewable vs Fossil fuels, lets hope that our Leaders have the courage to take not only the first step, but many more after that and help Australia find its way into the future and to the self-reliant future of the non-polluting renewables age.

Let’s Choose …….electric cars impact the environment

Take a breath and you will fill your lungs with clean pollution free air. If electric cars impact the environment it may be the same.

3 months ago, we worked, we played, we drove, and we enjoyed life. We had become immune to the subtle changes around us. So subtle that even the air had changed, and we didn’t really care.

The environment had gone through a significant change and we had been enjoying our lives we didn’t really notice. Many scientist and climate change advocates had been talking about the levels of pollution that had become over whelming for the earth to manage for years. Were we not listening? Did we not want to listen? or Were we to ignorant to listen? Why worry? nothing is going to happen to me!  I am having a great life this is something I don’t need to worry about.

Then something happened that will forever have an impact upon each of our lives. A small city in China, a place no one really had ever heard of until it became ground zero for one of the worst virus outbreaks in the last 50 – 100 years.

Many countries had to shut down, close the doors and turn the wonderful life off. Many people complained, many people didn’t understand and many more felt that their god given right to do whatever they want was being taken away.electric cars impact the environment

Regardless of how people felt, within a couple of weeks something truly amazing started to occur. Blue sky returned to large cities, beautiful mountain ranges thought lost from view started to reappear, all sorts of animals, dogs, deer’s, tigers, lions, badgers and birds all returned to take the place of the humans that disappeared.electric cars impact the environment

Hannah Ritchie and Max Roser (2020) – “Air Pollution”. Published online at OurWorldInData.org. Retrieved from: ‘https://ourworldindata.org/air-pollution’ [Online Resource]

Summaryhttps://ourworldindata.org/air-pollution

The air smelt different and clean and the sun beat down like never before. The blue of the sky was more beautiful than could be recalled. The scents of the plants and flowers were now more pungent and enticing than ever.

Pollution not only dropped, it disappeared, to levels not seen for over 2 decades. Cities that were usually covered in a thick toxic SMOG had clear skies above them.

Unfortunately, this is only temporary whilst people are stuck in doors and not driving combustion engines and polluting the air with nitrogen dioxide and Co2.

It is Temporary !!!!!

But it can change, you see this is exactly how our modern cities could be if only we made some changes.

  • Converted cars to electric
  • Stopped factories from burning oil, gas and coal
  • Changed the way we look at our environment around us
  • Replaced the trees we have cut down.

The industrial revolution gave us many and varied wonderful things. Although it has also been pumping pollutants into the air for a couple hundred years and now we are the recipients of the negative effects. But we are at a tipping point! With the shutdown we are getting glimpses of what it could be like if only we lift our heads and start to make some changes.

You see we almost had the opportunity 100 years ago to make the start of that change when electric vehicles were the dominant vehicle. However when the combustion engine, that Ford popularized with the Model T, was introduced the electric engine lost that battle. The idea however continued to sit in the background and every so often have a shot at being more than an afterthought.

Tesla in recent history has with their passion to convert the world to sustainable energy taken the electric vehicle to a level never before realized. In doing so they have again given us a shot as retribution and a possible solution to the current issue with pollution.

Introduction of electric motors, battery storage and renewable energy capture gives us the ability to make significant individual changes to the environment around us. But Governments also need to see the impacts and start to make significant change.

Recent events should give us a wakeup call!!!!!!!  We are Vulnerable! We need to appreciate the world that we are missing because we have not noticed the subtle negative changes that have impacted our environment and lives.

  • Let’s choose to buy electric cars, solar, wind and water energy solutions.
  • Lets choose to store that energy in batteries.
  • Let’s choose to influence our elected officials to make smarter choices that help people to breath fresh air and improve the skies around us.
  • Let’s choose to take an opportunity that came from a horrible situation and see what mother earth has to offer.
  • Let’s put back what we stole and bring light back to the cities we love.
  • Let’s start with a small step to recovery

I have started my own journey by purchasing solar and had it configured to accept a battery. I back Tesla with my website as I believe they have the right attitude and philosophy. I look forward to the day when I can purchase a Tesla battery and I am passionately looking forward to the look day I cannot wipe the smile off my face when I take delivery of a Tesla vehicle.
