Ep 76 - What Do You Think, Mel?
Mel is away in Hawaii, so Robert and Tom are in charge. They talk about all the news this week, including the Space X announcement to fly passengers on a private trip around the moon in 2018. Tom has some strong opinions about that story. They tell us about the massive solar park on the Tibetan Plateau in Eastern China. Once again we have the potential for the press to wax on and on over a Tesla fire in China, but Robert retorts with the news that Mercedes is recalling 300,000 US cars due to fire hazard and Lamborghini are recalling thousands of supercars. Lots of discussion about Lithium Ion Batteries, and the possibility of Sodium batteries. Many listeners are asking about how Teslas perform in the cold and Robert and Tom slug it out one more time about gas taxes and roadways.
