What would occur if President Biden really acknowledged Tesla’s EV management? I feel it might be an excellent factor not only for Tesla, however for all different automakers. For me, it’s about belief and integrity. Nevertheless, some could not agree with me and that’s okay. I noticed a put up in Reddit at this time that shared the angle from a Tesla investor that I felt wanted to be heard and respectfully addressed. It’s at all times good to listen to all sides of a narrative or debate.
Reddit consumer KarmaKill23 shared an fascinating perspective and thought as to why they don’t need President Biden acknowledging Tesla. The truth that President Biden has been utterly ignoring Tesla’s progress whereas pumping up Normal Motors hasn’t gone unnoticed by lots of Tesla’s supporters on-line, and even by the mainstream media.
I’ve written about it and have been very vocal in Tesla’s help proper right here on CleanTechnica, and though I don’t absolutely agree with the poster’s stance that it’s a foul thought, there are some factors that I do agree with — not simply within the unique put up, but additionally within the feedback.
The Reddit put up reads:
“So the new TSLA information of the week is a wave of sentiment that the administration ought to Acknowledge TSLA’s lead within the EV House. See right here and right here.
“Because the title says, I feel it is a unhealthy thought. From an Investor Standpoint and a Philosophical Standpoint.
There isn’t a world the place TSLA getting pulled into the highlight is sweet. One of the best-case state of affairs is that they get the acknowledgment persons are searching for after which that’s used to guilt them into turning into successfully a department of the federal government. Assure you if this administration acknowledges TSLA, that speech would finish with ‘and it’s TSLA’s responsibility to share and assist our Union Autoworkers into the long run blah blah blah’. That’s the very best case.
“The more severe case, and extra doubtless imo, is that this stress will trigger this administration to double down on anti-TSLA sentiment, perhaps even take extra direct measures to counter TSLA’s development.
“And simply to deliver this residence. Think about a world the place the administration acknowledges TSLA’s lead in earnest, Construct Again Higher is adjusted to offer TSLA benefits for already being all-electric, and TSLA merely explodes to 2k as a result of everybody simply accepts the established order. Yeah, I see hell freezing over too.
That is simple. TSLA could have a greater rally if all this drama goes quiet. Let the suckers maintain pondering GM and Ford are catching up. Let this Administration maintain pretending. A inventory flies when it surprises folks so the longer we maintain quiet and let the naysayers dwell in lala land, the tougher the pop when the bread comes out of the oven.
“In brief, I don’t assume this wave of stress to thrust TSLA right into a political highlight is a good suggestion. Let TSLA maintain doing what it’s doing. Let the work communicate for itself.”
I feel it’s at all times good to take heed to all sides of thought or subject so long as they’re civil and respectful. That stated, KarmaKill23 has some fairly stable factors. What if the administration might double down on Tesla to the purpose that it really counters the corporate’s development? We already see that with the Nationwide Freeway Transportation Security Administration’s pettiness over naming over-the-air updates as recollects. I’ve stated this earlier than but when there’s a recall for each OTA replace finally the NHTSA will see it because the baby crying wolf and an precise security recall might go ignored by shoppers pondering that it’s a simple repair. I digress.
In an article by Jalopnik masking the petition for President Biden to acknowledge Tesla’s EV management, the writer claims that Tesla followers are “actually deep of their emotions” and that having a “lock on the entire electrical automobile market with over 60% market share isn’t sufficient.” The article goes on to say that that is the necessity for official recognition is the precise foundation for the petition when it isn’t. The petition, which now has over 50,000 signatures, clearly states:
“The White Home and the Biden Administration have deliberately been attempting to disregard Tesla’s exhausting work whereas propping up GM and others as ‘EV Leaders.’ They’ve snubbed Tesla on behalf of UAW citing that the EV occasions have been for UAW.”
So it’s not about official recognition however extra about not mendacity to the general public — at the very least, that’s how I learn it. And that is why I really feel that Tesla does deserve recognition. Nevertheless, a response to KarmaKill23’s put up by Grape_Fluids identified:
“Such as you, Cathie Wooden likes to say ‘ultimately, the reality at all times wins’. I’ve to agree.
“The truth that the president isn’t acknowledging Tesla because the true chief within the EV house actually doesn’t imply a lot to us Tesla traders over the long-term. Wall Avenue cares about income and income, not the president’s vocabulary.
“Though Biden acknowledging Tesla might’ve given us a small bump over the short-term, which one in all us actually cares concerning the short-term?
“Additional, Biden not acknowledging Tesla says much less about Tesla however extra about himself and politicians as an entire. It’s so unhappy that true innovation is just not applauded on this nation, as a result of there’s not at all times a political incentive to take action. Politics is such a deceitful sport, that’s why the vast majority of Individuals are fed up with it.”
The reality does at all times have its approach of popping out. I feel each KarmaKill23 and Grape_Fluids make legitimate factors and I additionally assume that Tesla ought to be acknowledged just because it’s the reality. Tesla’s half in accelerating the transition to sustainability shouldn’t be ignored by our nation’s leaders.
Personally, I don’t care if Biden likes Tesla or prefers Ford or GM to a Tesla. Everybody has the precise to their very own choice. However we are able to’t be mad at Trump for selling Goya within the White Home however be cool with Biden claiming GM is the chief and giving GM the credit score for the work Tesla has completed.
The Reddit put up and thread are an excellent learn for these all for listening to many sides. Many of the feedback, from what I noticed, have been in favor of President Biden being truthful about Tesla’s contributions towards EVs and sustainability.
