What would occur if President Biden truly acknowledged Tesla’s EV management? I believe it will be a great factor not only for Tesla, however for all different automakers. For me, it’s about belief and integrity. Nevertheless, some might not agree with me and that’s okay. I noticed a submit in Reddit at the moment that shared the attitude from a Tesla investor that I felt wanted to be heard and respectfully addressed. It’s all the time good to listen to all sides of a narrative or debate.
Reddit person KarmaKill23 shared an attention-grabbing 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 Basic Motors hasn’t gone unnoticed by a lot 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 nasty concept, there are some factors that I do agree with — not simply within the authentic submit, but additionally within the feedback.
The Reddit submit reads:
“Because the title says, I believe it is a dangerous concept. From an Investor Standpoint and a Philosophical Standpoint.
There is no such thing as a world the place TSLA getting pulled into the highlight is nice. One of the best-case state of affairs is that they get the acknowledgment persons are on the lookout for after which that’s used to guilt them into changing 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 obligation to share and assist our Union Autoworkers into the long run blah blah blah’. That’s the perfect case.
“The more severe case, and extra probably 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 convey this house. Think about a world the place the administration acknowledges TSLA’s lead in earnest, Construct Again Higher is adjusted to present 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 may have a greater rally if all this drama goes quiet. Let the suckers preserve pondering GM and Ford are catching up. Let this Administration preserve pretending. A inventory flies when it surprises folks so the longer we preserve quiet and let the naysayers reside 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 preserve doing what it’s doing. Let the work communicate for itself.”
I believe it’s all the time good to hearken to all sides of thought or matter so long as they’re civil and respectful. That mentioned, KarmaKill23 has some fairly strong factors. What if the administration might double down on Tesla to the purpose that it truly 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 mentioned this earlier than but when there’s a recall for each OTA replace ultimately 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 overlaying the petition for President Biden to acknowledge Tesla’s EV management, the creator claims that Tesla followers are “actually deep of their emotions” and that having a “lock on the entire electrical car 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 arduous work whereas propping up GM and others as ‘EV Leaders.’ They’ve snubbed Tesla on behalf of UAW citing that the EV occasions had 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 this is the reason I really feel that Tesla does deserve recognition. Nevertheless, a response to KarmaKill23’s submit by Grape_Fluids identified:
“Such as you, Cathie Wooden likes to say ‘ultimately, the reality all the time wins’. I’ve to agree.
“The truth that the president isn’t acknowledging Tesla because the true chief within the EV house truthfully doesn’t imply a lot to us Tesla traders over the long-term. Wall Road 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 every of us actually cares concerning the short-term?
“Additional, Biden not acknowledging Tesla says much less about Tesla however extra about himself and politicians as a complete. It’s so unhappy that true innovation will not be applauded on this nation, as a result of there may be not all the time a political incentive to take action. Politics is such a deceitful sport, that’s why nearly all of People are fed up with it.”
The reality does all the time have its method of popping out. I believe each KarmaKill23 and Grape_Fluids make legitimate factors and I additionally assume that Tesla needs 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 correct to their very own desire. 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 executed.
The Reddit submit and thread are a great learn for these all in favour of listening to many sides. Many of the feedback, from what I noticed, had been in favor of President Biden being truthful about Tesla’s contributions towards EVs and sustainability.
