There is no doubt that transportation requires a lot of energy.

Don't confuse everyone with the facts, just give us information that makes us feel warm and fuzzy....

These articles always warn in the header that these are "OPINIONS"

The Yahoo article even high lights in RED... A red flag warning..

Did anyone check these "FACTS"....

Just because it is in the opinion section does not mean it can't contain facts. Can you prove it wrong ?

And as for overloading the grid,... can you say that California hasn't been having brownouts for years, nor has Texas, all because their grids are over loaded ?

"The roadster has logged more than 2.5 billion miles in space (4 billion kilometers), mostly through a barren vacuum. Though, in 2020, the vehicle made its first close approach to Mars, passing within 5 million miles of the planet, or about 20 times the distance between the Earth and the moon."
