“To hell with the fossil fuel industry.”
U.S. presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders blames climate change for many problems in this world, i.e. for the rise of the Islamic State. The article itself includes some interesting language, like that climate change is “allegedly induced by carbon emissions.” Nothing alleged about it – it’s a proven fact!
“What we need on the road is more zero-emission vehicles, and in mass quantities. With the exception of Tesla, Nissan and perhaps BMW, most manufacturers are only putting the minimum numbers they need into the market to meet the regulations.”
Diarmuid O’Connell, Tesla’s vice president of business development, supports California’s current state legislature, prioritizing ZEVs. Others argue that the number of zero-emission miles is more important, and therefore want to see more plug-in hybrids on the road.
“I think there’s some significant changes in the automobile industry over the next several years with electrification and autonomous driving. And there’s a need for a focus on user interface. And so I think there’s a lot of changes that will go on there.”
Apple CEO Tim Cook didn’t announce any iCar plans, but says that electrification and self-driving cars create new points of intersection between man and machine, needed to steer the new technologies.
