"COULD BE"

You know these journalist articles aren't 100% factual most of the time.

@BlogWobbles
So why are they refusing to comment?

@CouchChiller
why doesn't Tesla pay someone to make statements to clickbait articles that are posted every 5 minutes on average
Seems like a better idea to not do anything and enjoy endless free publicity, considering they don't advertise and rely on shit like that to keep the brand name in peoples head (and nobody actually takes clickbait garbage like that seriously except mouthbreathers like OP)

Why does the media issue a daily Tesla press release?

literally why they made the gigafactory, so they wouldn't be beholden to the world battery supply
problem is the gigafactory is taking time to get to full operation

@Booteefool
That's the bit that doesn't make sense. Tesla hardly makes cars, but they DO make batteries. So where does this journalism major get off blaming Tesla for a shortage? It's like pinning the lack of beer at a party on the guy who brought an entire keg.

@King_Martha
at the moment they need to buy stock to make the cars, especially as the model 3 ramps up, and they might be stockpiling so they can get a good rate now instead of buying over time as prices might climb.

but as the gigafactory ramps up output they'll be less reliant on the outside for it

@CouchChiller

They don't have the money to make cars, why would they have the money to pay someone to correct idiots?

Gigafactory doesn't pull lithium and nickel and cobalt out of its ass

Snarelure

@StrangeWizard
true, but the article was talking about a battery stockpile, not the raw resources for them

lithium supplies are ok now that chile has that salt flat evaporation mine up and running, that's got a fuckload of lithium for a long time
nickel's around
cobalt is a problem, yeah

people have been using petroleum for centuries
"it's a finite source! we will run out of it eventually! MUH PEAK OIL!"
we're still using petroleum, no signs of slowing down even after using gas guzzlers for the better part of a century

"electric/batteries are the future! Petrol is finished! Electricity will never run out!"
we're actually entering a shortage of litium

their batteries aren't just going in cars. they are also going into Powerwalls and Powerpacks. they've just dropped several megawatts of storage in Australia and Poorto Rico.

Gigafactory hasn't produced shit and is way overbudget.

according to Panasonic, they're increasing production of batteries at the gigafactory as of last october. They've been making cells there since last january.

muh peak oil

We will never run out of oil.
Oil is literally endless and a constantly renewed source. Whenever we drain thousands of gallons of petrol, its recreated near instantly.

That's not possible. Tesla doesn't even own or make any batteries. They're nearly all Panasonic batteries.

@Flameblow
What no one else is bothering to make batteries and now musk just owes them to the world? He's literally creating the demand for the batteries hence the perceived shortage

They're just making shit up to keep Tesla stocks up, their company isn't even profitable.

then other manufacturers will find another solution.
Remember, Tesla don't have the solid-state battery tech like Germans and Toyota have. It will be a game changer.

Aside from that, somewhere in the future oil companies will pump out artificial photosynthesis flow cells that produce a standard length hydrocarbon
2018 - 24 days
people still think technology isn't available to form hydrocarbons from co2 and water
people still think this won't become commercially viable
Lmao

bad news for musk
@VisualMaster

this has been confirmed by BMW - see /o/thread/18321683#p18321683
It does not require the use of rare earths.
