Re: Tesla's Model S Runs In-Car Linux

Energy isn't free (law of thermodynamics). So when you get off gas and go electric, you are kicking the can down the road. When you charge your car at night you are most likely releasing C02 since most power plants are ran on coal.

Yes and no. If you plug it in to a source powered by a coal power-plant, then yes you are still using fossil fuels. However there are two major benefits.

Which is why I think we need more nuclear plants. They release zero C02 and modern designs are melt-down proof (especially the thorium design).

I'll buy a Tesla just because their CEO called the Fisker Karma Mediocre: »www.autolust.com/tesla-ceo-calls···ediocre/

For the record, the Tesla is a far superior engineering feat than the Fisker.

At $49k base price and top notch design. Can't go wrong. Want one.

I actually like all that tech access in the car.
