Smart people will invest in the tow truck business.


I think we will need additional power generating plants.
Some reduced need because of night time charging. but at some point
there will be increased demand.

I once asked a relative of the manager of the largest engine plant in the world if the politics at GM was really that bad, already the stuff of course work, books and PhD papers.

He cringed with this grim don't even think about fixing it look. No matter what any CEO tried, he'd get out flanked by underlings.

Years later he said he'd be better off as a failed entrepreneur than work at GM.

Read the book, "The Reckoning" by David Halberstam. If you think GM is bad,
I bet Ford is worse.

Ford might not be quite as "hidebound" now as in the past.

I wish I had a < 5 week response time planning letters to politicians.

We're living in a philosopher-engineer's paradise. Just daydream out loud and it becomes reality in real time.


I'm sure you know what you are referring to, but I don't. I can't see
inside your head. Care to explain what you mean?

Big Auto Freaks Out as Tesla Model 3 Deliveries for Q1 Track Toward
8,000 to 10,000

The major automakers are increasingly in a bind. They're faced with a
choice - keep investing in dirty energy vehicles that pollute the air,
the water and wreck the climate, jump feet first into the EV
revolution, or play both sides. And it's this dichotomy that's
producing some rather freaky behavior.

One concern.

It may be some situation where they just cannot adapt.

There is some "invisible psychological hand" as with the Vega:
