I'm all for any technology that succeeds on its own merit, but Musk's
Tesla would have been long defunct if not for the lavish amounts of free
money it gets.
Gotta love the bs from you denialists, you all act like a push to make the auto makers have better mpg is a violation of freedom then you act like a subsidy is a violation to the law of supply and demand.

Comment: As New York and London mayors, we call on all cities to
divest from fossil fuels
"Together, the world's urban centres can send a message to the fossil
fuel industry," write Bill de Blasio and Sadiq Khan, the mayors of New
York and London, in a comment for the Guardian. They write: "Ahead of
the Global Climate Action Summit in California [this week], we are
calling on other cities to stand with us to divest their assets from
fossil fuel companies. Today we are announcing a new global initiative
for cities on divestment and sustainable investment#We believe we can
demonstrate to the world that divestment is a powerful tool and a
prudent use of resources." -- Bill de Blasio and Sadiq Khan, The Guardian
Spatial and temporal changes in the frequency and magnitude of intense
precipitation events in the southeastern United States
The number and intensity of extreme rainfall events have increased
every year from 1950-2016 in the southeastern US, a new study
finds. Using high-resolution modelling, the researchers show that, out
of all the seasons, the autumn has seen the largest increases in
rainfall events across the study period. In addition, inland regions
have seen larger rainfall increases than coastal areas, the authors
add. -- International Journal of Climatology

China trade surplus narrows, but not with the U.S.
MarketWatch, 10 Sep 2018 1:02 a.m. ET
Beijing. China's total trade surplus narrowed in August despite a
worsening imbalance with the U.S., as the country faced the threat of
more tariffs from the Trump administration.
China reported a total trade surplus of $27.91 billion in August,
narrowing from a surplus of $28.05 billion a month earlier, customs
data showed. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal had expected
a $30.6 billion surplus.
Exports rose 9.8% from a year earlier, following July's 12.2% increase,
the General Administration of Customs said Saturday. Economists had
forecast an 11% growth in overseas shipments.
Imports were up 20% in August from a year earlier, slowing from a 27.3%
increase the previous month and matching economists' median forecast.
China's trade surplus with the U.S., however, widened to $31.05 billion
in August from $28.09 billion in July, according to calculations by The
Wall Street Journal based on customs data.
