But they pay him tens on millions as a bonus for being an idiot

Edit: yeah it’s billions. The amount of money they waste on this cocksucker is incomprehensible.

Billions. They paid him the same amount of money (as a bonus!) as Bill Gates had in total when he was the worlds richest person in 2007.

Tens of millions is drastically understating tens of billions.

The difference is literally tens of billions.

Calling him a “cocksucker” is frankly insulting to people who perform the act of sucking cock. Musk is way too selfish to perform the generous and loving act that is fellatio.

after paying him tens of millions, they did it again a thousand more times because thousands of tens of millions is billions. tens of thousands of millions of dollars. It’s an insane amount of money.

They missed a trick by using paint, when a spray of salt water would have done the job at one more subtly and more permanently

Subtle wasn’t the intent here. But I do like your thought process here.

while at the same time by-design cloaking it as pure bad quality could actually cause way more longterm damage than a little bit of paint.

on the other hand the paint could also be just a marketing strategy depending on what they smoked to get new ideas

This is dumb. Sure Elon Musk is a dickhead. And sure Cybertruck is a dumb vehicle that only dickheads would want to have.

But I’d rather the dickheads be driving a Cybertruck than some other massive vehicle that runs on fossil fuels.

All car companies are run by evil dickheads. Most of them just make less noise than Elon.

I bet a lot have worse opinions too, they literally conspired with oil companies to avoid fixing climate change and certain companies like vw actively put in measures to cheat emissions tests.

@SpaceCowboy @return2ozma ~60% of Tesla’s profits come from the sale of carbon credits, which enable other massive vehicles that run on fossil fuels to be built. E-cars are not about “saving the planet” they are pure Greenwash which is saving the motor industry.

That’s more of a problem with how carbon credits are being regulated. Sure Tesla are being assholes for doing this, but it’s a corporation, I don’t expect them to be good guys.

But none of that changes the fact that some meathead buying a Cybertruck instead of the equivalent fossil fuel monstrosity is reducing CO2 emissions in a direct way. Spray paint the sign a Tesla corporate HQ, don’t damage a vehicle which will only have the result of someone driving a fossil fuel vehicle a little longer while the damage is being fixed.

Literally the state of California would have lower CO2 emissions today if Tesla didn’t exist.

No way, that is positively enormous.

Even carbon credit companies that do their best aren’t always (are often?) not great. e.g. trees may be planted, but:

  • locals’ may have been misappropriated for the purpose
  • you might go back five years later and find all the trees were cut down

It seems like there is some progress with that technology that… throws gravel onto beaches or something, to be broken down by waves. Really hope it’s not total BS.

Tesla is synonymous with climate destruction and if you believe otherwise demonstrates that you have grossly bought into their propaganda.

Fuck Cars

!fuck_cars@lemmy.ml

Create post

This community exists as a sister community/copycat community to the r/fuckcars subreddit.

This community exists for the following reasons:

  • to raise awareness around the dangers, inefficiencies and injustice that can come from car dependence.
  • to allow a place to discuss and promote more healthy transport methods and ways of living.

You can find the Matrix chat room for this community here.

Rules

  1. Be nice to each other. Being aggressive or inflammatory towards other users will get you banned. Name calling or obvious trolling falls under that. Hate cars, hate the system, but not people. While some drivers definitely deserve some hate, most of them didn’t choose car-centric life out of free will.

  2. No bigotry or hate. Racism, transphobia, misogyny, ableism, homophobia, chauvinism, fat-shaming, body-shaming, stigmatization of people experiencing homeless or substance users, etc. are not tolerated. Don’t use slurs. You can laugh at someone’s fragile masculinity without associating it with their body. The correlation between car-culture and body weight is not an excuse for fat-shaming.

  3. Stay on-topic. Submissions should be on-topic to the externalities of car culture in urban development and communities globally. Posting about alternatives to cars and car culture is fine. Don’t post literal car fucking.

  4. No traffic violence. Do not post depictions of traffic violence. NSFW or NSFL posts are not allowed. Gawking at crashes is not allowed. Be respectful to people who are a victim of traffic violence or otherwise traumatized by it. News articles about crashes and statistics about traffic violence are allowed. Glorifying traffic violence will get you banned.

  5. No reposts. Before sharing, check if your post isn’t a repost. Reposts that add something new are fine. Reposts that are sharing content from somewhere else are fine too.

  6. No misinformation. Masks and vaccines save lives during a pandemic, climate change is real and anthropogenic - and denial of these and other established facts will get you banned. False or highly speculative titles will get your post deleted.

  7. No harassment. Posts that (may) cause harassment, dogpiling or brigading, intentionally or not, will be removed. Please do not post screenshots containing uncensored usernames. Actual harassment, dogpiling or brigading is a bannable offence.

Please report posts and comments that violate our rules.
