RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

It's a short drive for me to Tesla's Sparks factory. I can check it out, lol.:W Yes, but will you have the right adapter to charge your vehicle? I don't need one. I am charging via Starling beaming it me down.:B Wait, that's Australia, not Canada.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

But based on Musk’s announcement, Tesla is also expected to finally deliver Tesla Semi to customers who have placed orders up to five years ago. Tesla has been taking reservations with deposits for up to $20,000 per truck. The company is believed to have thousands of reservations for the electric truck with several large companies having big orders, including Walmart and PepsiCo. While the automaker has production capacity deployed in Nevada, it is fairly low volume. Tesla is expected to bring the vehicle to volume production at Gigafactory Texas next year. The company has never announced a planned production capacity, but it is expected to be in the tens of thousands of trucks per year. Electrek It's a short drive for me to Tesla's Sparks factory. I can check it out, lol.:W

What the ....? Why do you even have to lie and distort to give excuses to these grossly incompetent and criminally negligent Texas leaders and electric company? Those who died froze to death inside their homes for lack of power for heating. Re-read you post then, if you mention your experience of being inconvenienced of a canceled game in the same breath of topic of people freezing to death, it is implied. No argument that TX utility companies weren't prepared for a record cold spell of that magnitude and geographical breadth. But think about what you're implying. First, you're implying intent to harm...ya pretty sure that wasn't the case. Second, I can think of any number of natural disasters or weather extremes that kill people who are either not prepared or in the wrong place at the wrong time. This was no different. Could those folks have been spared if the power didn't go out? Sure. By the same token, everyone killed in a tornado could be spared if the govt builds a huge tornado shelter in every trailer park. But wait, at some point for that to work, also requires everyone to GO to the shelter. Same thing here, bud. I understand that your view (and others) differs from mine and that general mindset that "nothing is MY fault" and "the Govt's responsibility is to take care of ME" is hard to overcome when you've literally become dependent on everything but yourself. Another looks here? First dismissing, now 246 deaths, to the inconvenience of your own canceled game. And now your diverting it to the false equivalence of tornado deaths. Dude, these utilities and their incompetent and thoughtless leaders in Texas would just have leaned harder on them since decades earlier state's lack of preparedness for such storms in a report from U.S. federal regulators and Texas own Electric Reliability Council. Thus preventable. What wrong with you?:h Nobody in California has the right to claim that someone else's utility company is poorly run. Fix your own then show us how it is done. I'm not in California but I'll play. As far as I know, unlike Texas, there was no 246 deaths in California caused by gross negligence of both the state leadership and the utility company. Another of this false equivalency and whataboutthism. Next!:S

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

@Yosemite, Why would I compare missing a game to a death? Oh maybe as evidence that it wasn’t “that” bad. But you are sensationalizing it. To the greatest extent. Do you not think out of almost 30million people in that state that there are less than 200 people who either A. Don’t have the sense to come in out of the cold (insane, homeless etc) or B. Don’t have an extenuating circumstance that lead to some cold weather killing them. (Likely pretty much the same as A? What the ....? Why do you even have to lie and distort to give excuses to these grossly incompetent and criminally negligent Texas leaders and electric company? Those who died froze to death inside their homes for lack of power for heating.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Compared to TX, I believe the CA administration of the grid has gone quite well. I expect this superior management to continue as we transition away from burning fuel to have electricity. EVs will be the easy part as charging is flexible. CA is ready for the SEMI. Not even close, 200 Texans died of deep freeze with massive black out because their leaders can't make the electric companies harden their grids and plants with winterization.:E And the sad part, these same leaders even got the nerve to lie to their constituents that it's the turbines and renewables that failed when the windmills (it's turbines, idiot) are still going whoop, whoom, whoom, causing cancer, in nearby states.:h:S:R Half of Texas homes are electric heat and 75% of those are resistance heat....literally the most inefficient, electricity sucking way to produce heat, so ya, there probably was a run on power during those days, lol. But, yeah, so 200+ people died in 100 year low temps that also lasted far longer than other record or near record events combined with near record snowfalls. 200 people die every summer from heat illness too. And aside from the indigent, the majority of the deaths were likely people who were almost too weak to survive anyway...kinda like how Covid deaths got pumped up but the reality was 90+% of the deaths were people whom the NEXT thing to get them would kill them whether it be the flu or a broken hip or a stroke... Coincidentally, I was in Dallas during that deep freeze. It was very annoying. Coming from the north, I never considered it dangerous. Heck we only had 1 hockey game cancelled out of 5 or 6 and that was after the weather stated to break...but the refs couldn't get to the rink. The most dangerous part was I had a rental car that kept locking up a front wheel so I drove around for 3 days, more often than not with one wheel acting like a ski....thank god for all the snow, or it would have been dead in the water! Sensationalizing that event as a comparison to about anything is complete jackassery, but I would like to here your views of how you think the Cali grid would do, if it was below zero for several days from San Diego all the way up to Sacramento? I mean, I'm sure it would be fine by your logic...people could just sit in their Teslas with the heat on watching Tik tok videos on the big screen... Wow, wow, wow. Is this for real? You are actually comparing your cancelled hockey game with the same grim seriousness 200 preventable deaths if only their leaders bear down really hard on the former recommendations to harden the grid and the generating plants thru winterization. That's not sensationalizing dude, 200 people dead are 200 people dead, wives without their husbands, husbands losing their wives and kids no longer celebrating their birthdays. Death from illness is totally different from death from negligence of which people should be held accountable. What's wrong with you?

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

More and more people are doing the math and showing the figures. Refreshing, because I showed the math about the Semi and why it would never work for an OTR semi. This guy shows the math of an electric SUV. Listen to the figures he shows and what it takes to make even an electric SUV let alone a Semi. I guess the author has never heard of solar panels. And those solar panels are actually supplying the grid in times of low usage and surplus. But heck, California is facing an apocalypse and the whole world doesn't know and keeps on using it as a benchmark for greening, pollution abatement and energy independence. Surprising how mathematically challenged not only tuna, but someone who is in the top 2% of the IQ scale can be... Tell us then sage of mathematics how there can be different math for CA when they are already doing it, it's already happening and actually targeting for higher contributions from rooftop solar panels. Study: California could get 74% of power from rooftop solar

And the sad part, these same leaders even got the nerve to lie to their constituents that it's the turbines and renewables that failed when the windmills (it's turbines, idiot) are still going whoop, whoom, whoom, causing cancer, in nearby states.:h:S:R You would be better served to pick a side here, as to not make your posts look even more ridiculous than they typically are.... With your mindset that you've clearly displayed, you now beleive windmills casue cancer, aka, are a "bad" renewable energy source? You would have sounded at least a bit less touched had you blamed the windmills for killing bald eagles or something even remotely possible... Wow, seriously, you did not see that it's a parody of the anti-renewables, now anti-EV messiah who don't know the difference between windmills and turbines and so ignorant to say that those whoom, whoom, whoom... (he doesn't know the word for going in circles and just draw from his kindergarten level knowledge and did it in gestures and sound).

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Yes record heat and electric demand with ZERO rolling blackouts ordered by the CAISO. Of course equipment failures and maintenance happens every single day. (24/7/365) Looks like CA will be ready for both SEMI and transition to 100% EV auto sales on schedule. Breathing cleaner air will be a wonderful transition. But in some people's world, a single incident of a blackout (my sister lives in the Bay Area and she told me, what black out) is some scary **** "rolling blackout" that would make EV unfeasible. California averts widespread rolling blackouts as energy demands ease amid heat wave I did not see this in how California averted blackouts. Emergency Generators Say what? You are implying that CA did not avert the rolling black outs, then posted an article which cited how CA averted the black outs with generators. Which is which? And by-the-way, we are talking of persistent black outs aka rolling black outs. Here, to the EV haters and prognicators of doom for CA's mandate to adapt a no-tail pipe regs. EVs aren't straining the electric grid — and they just might save it To the California haters who keeps on hammering that the state because of it's liberalism is ungovernable, in complete anarchy and chaos; Californians paid heed to text to save energy, averting blackouts

Well this took an interesting turn… Maybe this will effect the closure of this thread? Hoping….. Psychiatric paranoia? Lol Saw your intentions years ago. But this is how it works: 1. First you trigger the discussions by making a political post. 2. Then when someone responded, even if the response avoids politics, you report it to the moderator. 3. And when you are caught with your pants down with your dismissing the Cybertruck as just "brake and shear" car that you can do yourself in your workshop, you also report it to the moderator as personal attack and hurting your tender feelings.

Thats awesome… all we have to do is “agree” with you and all is fine… as soon as we go against your way were wrong… I love the fact that we have EV’s as alternatives , even tusk says we cannot abandon fossil fuels as they are needed… But all the tree lovers disagree, ITS ELECTRIC OR NOTHING.. Hogwash Don't forget that if you don't live in California youre an uneducated ingate (whatever an ingate is lol), along with the entire rest of the US being economocally dependent on CA so much that if they secede the US becomes a 3rd world country, according to this Yosemite Sam troll butt muncher lol.

According to the undisputed experts, Zac and Jesse the utube feltchers. They probably sport Coexist bumpers stickers also, just not as stained as yours from the pollution being belched from the 8.1s tailpipe immediatly below. LMAO 8.1 now there is some undisputed science!! Some real experts right there! Come on 8.1. Get rid of your 8.1. In fact, have it crushed so no other RV'er can buy it and spew out loads of emissions. Buy a Tesla and a tent trailer or just a tent and go camping if that's what you believe will save the world. Better yet, buy a OTR Tesla Semi. You said they will be out in less than 4 months and they will be able to tow 621 miles/ charge according to Tusk.I don't want to speak for 8.1 however he seems excited about coming new technology where yourself, grit and a few others inherently dislike anything that might be something other than burning petroleum into the atmosphere to get down the road. Whatever, but perhaps some may have a small problem with one camp forcing others into said camp via gubmint mandates, despite the documented fact that the subject being discussed and mandated has its own downsides and issues. I'd love to see someone like Yosemite Sam spend an hour in a local tavern in SE Ohio, in the middle of Marcellus country, and spew his rhetoric. I suspect he would have his dentures punched out of his mouth quickly lol. Except that I can punch back. But heck, those poor and low education states and their party affiliation confirms what we've been hearing as prone to violence as sore losers. And like the yellow-bellied bullies we met in high school, would make threats of violence and when called into it melts like snowflakes and cry babies.:R Real men don't make threats, as Nike said: Just do it! And let's see what happens.

Reads to me like a Socialist manifesto. There goes that ignorant fear-mongering "socialism" word again for those who have not followed the evolution of new political and economic systems. And yes, Norway, who by the way seems to be going full ahead with EVisation of their transportation system is a democratic socialist country who scored highest in quality of life, has the happiest citizen, vitually no poverty, no one goes bankrupt paying for medical care which is universally provided free, don't have student loan forgiveness because of free education for all levels and most secured seniors with adequate pensions and don't have to eat cat food when money is running out until the next social security payout. And the country is not unique, other Nordic democratic socialist countries like Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, Finland... have similar system. You evidently did not take the time to read the site that 8.1 linked to, which is what my post was referring to, not surprising though. That article has so much socialist BS it will make your head spin. And if Norway is so great, feel free to immigrate there, although they most likely would not accept you. The default response of those too lazy to study why these countries have such better quality of life and maybe adapt the good ones and discharge what's not in our national goal of a more perfect union. But yes, I was invited to to move to the Nederlands by the Anglo-Dutch global company I worked for. Next! (That tired and worn out "drink cool-aid"?):S:h
