Potential impacts of climate change on storage conditions for commercial
agriculture: an example for potato production in Michigan
A warming climate will increase the energy demands for refrigeration
in the US food and farming industries, a new study suggests. Using a
case study of the Michigan chip-processing potato industry - the state
being the largest producer of chipped potatoes in the US - the
researchers simulate post-harvest potato storage for the 21st
century. The finding indicate increasing future demand for ventilation
and/or refrigeration immediately after harvest and again in spring and
early summer - by as much as 35 days by the end of the century. This
"provides an example of the potentially large effects of climate
change on the storage conditions for agricultural commodities", the
authors conclude. -- Climatic Change

So yet again it looks like Tesla is "Leaking" false

Hillbillies have no idea about the real world. They work by gut feelings
and long-held prejudices. They cain look up VIN data or registrations
or figga a way to relate "wild sightings" to total populations.
They dont know any keywords and cain even google up any of these things.
They may as well not exist since they have essentially zero output.

How many Teslas are on the road?
More than 200,000 Teslas are on the road right now, each providing the
company with data it can use to improve its machine-learning technology.
However, now that the Model 3 is in production, the number of Teslas on the
road could explode.

California's Drought of the Future: A Midcentury Recreation of the
Exceptional Conditions of 2012-2017
If California had a repeat of its 2012-16 drought, but 30 years later1
higher global temperatures would mean it would be "much worse than its
historical counterpart", a new study says. Using model simulations,
the researchers assessed the impacts if similar dynamical conditions
to the 2012-16 drought occurred in 1942-46. Overall, the midcentury
drought would have many more extreme heat days, record-low snowpack,
increased soil drying, and record-high forest loss, the findings
show. The authors caution that an "extensive effort#must now be
invested on the part of California's residents, water managers,
policymakers, and the broader stakeholder community to prepare for the
next big drought". -- Earth's Future

"...according to a report by electric vehicle blog
Electrek that cited unnamed sources."
So yet again it looks like Tesla is "Leaking" false
information to give investors the wrong idea that
production levels are higher than they really are.
Tesla loses $6K on every single car.
The company could stop losing money simply by ceasing production.
Aren't you even a little shocked that only after,
what is it? Four days since the SEC gave them a
massive warning Tesla is already back to illegal
tricks?

That's what this looks like.

I dunno. Maybe they're fooling us. Maybe they're
"Leaking" accurate information for the first time
ever, just to "Prove" that they've turned over a
new leaf. But it looks an awful lot like Tesla &
Musk are shitting on the SEC here...

Eggzactly why we need to tax carbon: Force tar goopers to pay that $6K.

Electric cars run mainly on fossil fuels. If they didn't, and were
charged by intermittent energies, people who rely on their car for their
profession (craftspeople or medical emergencies for example), would need
several electric cars in order to be sure to have one charged at hand
when they need it.

Obvious lie.

Munro & Associates says Tesla is earning more than 30 percent profit on each
Model 3 sold. That’s considered a very high profit margin for a conventional
gasoline-powered car, but no one else is anywhere close with electric
vehicles.

They're all sold at more than 30% ABOVE list price.

Each & every Model 3 to come off the assembly line
has been loaded with options. None have sold for less
than $50k even though the list price is $35k.

The funny thing is Tesla doesn't actually publish how much it costs to
build a unit. The way analysts generally estimate is to look at
revenues vs expenses in the quarterly reports and divide by the
estimated number of units produced. The google kidz never get past the
headline of the crap they post, so they would never know that.

Exactly. And if those headlines originate from
Tesla, and they're not accurate, that's fraud.
That would be Tesla deliberately trying to fool
investors into thinking that something is true
when it isn't.

....false profit margins, false production
& sales numbers...

Google kidz can't understand simple things, like Telsa's profit/loss
statements. If Tesla continues losing money quarter after quarter after
quarter, the cars are not profitable, as simple as that

I notice total crickets from Tesla so far on Q3 earnings, I can only
imagine why that is <sarcasm>.

Actually the way the cost was determined was to disassemble the car
and look at costs part by part. And no car manufacturer publishes how
much it costs to build a unit. Why does chumpsky always lie?

"Munro & Associates estimates Tesla pays $29.50 for each mirror, whereas the
BMW i3 is $93 and the Chevy Bolt is $165."

Summary

Elon Musk guided to positive cash flow and profitability for Tesla in Q3
and Q4 of this year.

While I remain dubious of even a one-off profitable quarter, recent VIN
registration data indicates it might be possible.

However, the catalysts for this profit potential dig a hole that I don’t
see Tesla escaping in Q4.

Even if Q3 is slightly profitable, I anticipate Q4 and beyond will be
devastating.

In an article a few weeks ago, I collaborated with Tesla (TSLA)
production sleuth skabooshka, who determined that Model 3 production was
falling well short of what was being reported in the media, and possibly
short of Tesla’s own guidance. I also presented his theory, based on
exhaustive research by himself, temp_worker, and phoennix10, that a
possible cause for the production slowdown was a supply chain issue
related SiC MOSFET units used in the production of the Model 3 drive
units.

Regardless of the specific reason for the current rate of production, it
is clear that Tesla is not producing anywhere near the burst-rate 5000/
week reported at the end of Q2. However, the mix of reported VIN
registrations leads me to believe that even at lower-than-anticipated
production, Tesla might be able to eek out a profit in Q3.

The following charts demonstrate the mix of reported RWD and AWD Model 3
VIN registrations.

A profitable quarter still doesn't mean Teslas are profitable.

The cars are only profitable when lifetime net earnings go positive.

It's actually much much worse than $6K per car.

Tesla Q2 earnings: $717.5 million loss
Tesla Q2 production: 55,000 units (generous estimate)

717.5M / 55,000 = $13,045 loss for every unit produced

gasoline-powered car, but no one else is anywhere close with electric

Summary
Elon Musk guided to positive cash flow and profitability for Tesla in Q3
and Q4 of this year.
While I remain dubious of even a one-off profitable quarter, recent VIN
registration data indicates it might be possible.
However, the catalysts for this profit potential dig a hole that I don’t
see Tesla escaping in Q4.
Even if Q3 is slightly profitable, I anticipate Q4 and beyond will be
devastating.
In an article a few weeks ago, I collaborated with Tesla (TSLA)
production sleuth skabooshka, who determined that Model 3 production was
falling well short of what was being reported in the media, and possibly
short of Tesla’s own guidance. I also presented his theory, based on
exhaustive research by himself, temp_worker, and phoennix10, that a
possible cause for the production slowdown was a supply chain issue
related SiC MOSFET units used in the production of the Model 3 drive
units.
Regardless of the specific reason for the current rate of production, it
is clear that Tesla is not producing anywhere near the
burst-rate 5000/
week reported at the end of Q2. However, the mix of reported VIN
registrations leads me to believe that even at
lower-than-anticipated
production, Tesla might be able to eek out a profit in Q3.
The following charts demonstrate the mix of reported RWD and AWD Model 3
VIN registrations.

A profitable quarter still doesn't mean Teslas are profitable.
The cars are only profitable when lifetime net earnings go positive.
A few days ago chumpsky was claiming that that Tesla "loses $6K on every
single car". Now that's been shown up as a lie the goalposts get moved.
It's actually much much worse than $6K per car.
Tesla Q2 earnings: $717.5 million loss
Tesla Q2 production: 55,000 units (generous estimate)
717.5M / 55,000 = $13,045 loss for every unit produced
Regardless of the overall corporate loss, they clearly earn more than 30
percent profit on each Model 3 sold.
Telsa lost $717.5 million in Q2 making ~55,000 cars.
If the cars were profitable, the company would have made money.
It's really that simple.
Really, only a simpleton would make that statement. Amazon lost money
for years but still made a profit on almost every item sold.
Nope, profit is when revenues exceed expenses.

Excluding R&D expenditures, Tesla stomached a $6,738 GAAP loss per car
but turned a $12,827 non-GAAP profit per vehicle.
Tesla's gross profit per vehicle was $16,660 in GAAP terms and $22,634
by its internal non-GAAP accounting.
Holistically, Tesla's GAAP net loss per vehicle was $19,059, while its
non-GAAP net loss was $5,081.

Excluding R&D expenditures, Tesla stomached a $6,738 GAAP loss per car
but turned a $12,827 non-GAAP profit per vehicle.
Tesla's gross profit per vehicle was $16,660 in GAAP terms and $22,634
by its internal non-GAAP accounting.
Holistically, Tesla's GAAP net loss per vehicle was $19,059, while its
non-GAAP net loss was $5,081.

https://seekingalpha.com/article/4207448-tesla-q3-profitability-trap
Summary
Elon Musk guided to positive cash flow and profitability
for Tesla in Q3
and Q4 of this year.
While I remain dubious of even a one-off profitable
quarter, recent VIN
registration data indicates it might be possible.
However, the catalysts for this profit potential dig a hole
that I don’t
see Tesla escaping in Q4.
Even if Q3 is slightly profitable, I anticipate Q4 and
beyond will be
devastating.
In an article a few weeks ago, I collaborated with Tesla (TSLA)
production sleuth skabooshka, who determined that Model 3
production was
falling well short of what was being reported in the media,
and possibly
short of Tesla’s own guidance. I also presented his theory,
based on
exhaustive research by himself, temp_worker, and
phoennix10, that a
possible cause for the production slowdown was a supply chain issue
related SiC MOSFET units used in the production of the
Model 3 drive
units.
Regardless of the specific reason for the current rate of
production, it
is clear that Tesla is not producing anywhere near the
burst-rate 5000/
week reported at the end of Q2. However, the mix of reported VIN
registrations leads me to believe that even at
lower-than-anticipated
production, Tesla might be able to eek out a profit in Q3.
The following charts demonstrate the mix of reported RWD
and AWD Model 3
VIN registrations.

A profitable quarter still doesn't mean Teslas are profitable.
The cars are only profitable when lifetime net earnings go positive.
A few days ago chumpsky was claiming that that Tesla "loses
$6K on every
single car". Now that's been shown up as a lie the goalposts get moved.
It's actually much much worse than $6K per car.
Tesla Q2 earnings: $717.5 million loss
Tesla Q2 production: 55,000 units (generous estimate)
717.5M / 55,000 = $13,045 loss for every unit produced
Regardless of the overall corporate loss, they clearly earn more than 30
percent profit on each Model 3 sold.
Telsa lost $717.5 million in Q2 making ~55,000 cars.
If the cars were profitable, the company would have made money.
It's really that simple.
Really, only a simpleton would make that statement. Amazon lost money
for years but still made a profit on almost every item sold.
Nope, profit is when revenues exceed expenses.

Munro & Associates says Tesla is earning more than 30 percent profit on each
Model 3 sold. That’s considered a very high profit margin for a conventional
gasoline-powered car, but no one else is anywhere close with electric
vehicles.

Bored?

He's spending all his time there so bored isn't true.


https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/22/what-working-120-hours-a-week-like-teslas-elon-musk-does-to-the-body.html


Facing mounting pressure to meet production goals at Tesla, Musk says
he's been working 120 hours some weeks. He also says he hasn't taken
time off in years and he sometimes resorts to using sleep medication.
These habits seem to have taken their toll on Musk. The often upbeat and
witty founder told the New York Times he felt exhausted. He "alternated
between laughter and tears," at several points in the recent Times
article and sometimes stopped talking altogether, possibly overcome by
emotion.

"It's not been great, actually," Musk said. "I've had friends come by
who are really concerned."

Excluding R&D expenditures, Tesla stomached a $6,738 GAAP loss per
car but turned a $12,827 non-GAAP profit per vehicle.
Tesla's gross profit per vehicle was $16,660 in GAAP terms and
$22,634 by its internal non-GAAP accounting.
Holistically, Tesla's GAAP net loss per vehicle was $19,059, while
its non-GAAP net loss was $5,081.
I didn't see a question. But I asked one. Tesla "could stop losing money
simply by ceasing production". True or false?
Wrong.

https://seekingalpha.com/article/4207448-tesla-q3-profitability-trap
Summary
Elon Musk guided to positive cash flow and profitability for
Tesla in Q3
and Q4 of this year.
While I remain dubious of even a one-off profitable quarter,
recent VIN
registration data indicates it might be possible.
However, the catalysts for this profit potential dig a hole
that I don’t
see Tesla escaping in Q4.
Even if Q3 is slightly profitable, I anticipate Q4 and beyond
will be
devastating.
In an article a few weeks ago, I collaborated with Tesla (TSLA)
production sleuth skabooshka, who determined that Model 3
production was
falling well short of what was being reported in the media,
and possibly
short of Tesla’s own guidance. I also presented his theory,
based on
exhaustive research by himself, temp_worker, and phoennix10,
that a
possible cause for the production slowdown was a supply chain
issue
related SiC MOSFET units used in the production of the Model 3
drive
units.
Regardless of the specific reason for the current rate of
production, it
is clear that Tesla is not producing anywhere near the
burst-rate 5000/
week reported at the end of Q2. However, the mix of reported VIN
registrations leads me to believe that even at
lower-than-anticipated
production, Tesla might be able to eek out a profit in Q3.
The following charts demonstrate the mix of reported RWD and
AWD Model 3
VIN registrations.

A profitable quarter still doesn't mean Teslas are profitable.
The cars are only profitable when lifetime net earnings go
positive.
A few days ago chumpsky was claiming that that Tesla "loses $6K
on every
single car". Now that's been shown up as a lie the goalposts get
moved.
It's actually much much worse than $6K per car.
Tesla Q2 earnings: $717.5 million loss
Tesla Q2 production: 55,000 units (generous estimate)
717.5M / 55,000 = $13,045 loss for every unit produced
Regardless of the overall corporate loss, they clearly earn more
than 30
percent profit on each Model 3 sold.
Telsa lost $717.5 million in Q2 making ~55,000 cars.
If the cars were profitable, the company would have made money.
It's really that simple.
Really, only a simpleton would make that statement. Amazon lost money
for years but still made a profit on almost every item sold.
Nope, profit is when revenues exceed expenses.

Munro & Associates says Tesla is earning more than 30 percent profit on each
Model 3 sold. That’s considered a very high profit margin for a
conventional
gasoline-powered car, but no one else is anywhere close with electric
vehicles.

I didn't see a question. But I asked one. Tesla "could stop losing money

Wrong.

100% false.

https://seekingalpha.com/article/4207448-tesla-q3-profitability-trap
Summary
Elon Musk guided to positive cash flow and profitability for
Tesla in Q3
and Q4 of this year.
While I remain dubious of even a one-off profitable quarter,
recent VIN
registration data indicates it might be possible.
However, the catalysts for this profit potential dig a hole
that I don’t
see Tesla escaping in Q4.
Even if Q3 is slightly profitable, I anticipate Q4 and beyond
will be
devastating.
In an article a few weeks ago, I collaborated with Tesla (TSLA)
production sleuth skabooshka, who determined that Model 3
production was
falling well short of what was being reported in the media,
and possibly
short of Tesla’s own guidance. I also presented his theory,
based on
exhaustive research by himself, temp_worker, and phoennix10,
that a
possible cause for the production slowdown was a supply chain
issue
related SiC MOSFET units used in the production of the Model 3
drive
units.
Regardless of the specific reason for the current rate of
production, it
is clear that Tesla is not producing anywhere near the
burst-rate 5000/
week reported at the end of Q2. However, the mix of reported VIN
registrations leads me to believe that even at
lower-than-anticipated
production, Tesla might be able to eek out a profit in Q3.
The following charts demonstrate the mix of reported RWD and
AWD Model 3
VIN registrations.

A profitable quarter still doesn't mean Teslas are profitable.
The cars are only profitable when lifetime net earnings go
positive.
A few days ago chumpsky was claiming that that Tesla "loses $6K
on every
single car". Now that's been shown up as a lie the goalposts get
moved.
It's actually much much worse than $6K per car.
Tesla Q2 earnings: $717.5 million loss
Tesla Q2 production: 55,000 units (generous estimate)
717.5M / 55,000 = $13,045 loss for every unit produced
Regardless of the overall corporate loss, they clearly earn more
than 30
percent profit on each Model 3 sold.
Telsa lost $717.5 million in Q2 making ~55,000 cars.
If the cars were profitable, the company would have made money.
It's really that simple.
Really, only a simpleton would make that statement. Amazon lost money
for years but still made a profit on almost every item sold.
Nope, profit is when revenues exceed expenses.

Munro & Associates says Tesla is earning more than 30 percent profit
on each
Model 3 sold. That’s considered a very high profit margin for a
conventional
gasoline-powered car, but no one else is anywhere close with electric
vehicles.

Excluding R&D expenditures, Tesla stomached a $6,738 GAAP loss per car
but turned a $12,827 non-GAAP profit per vehicle.
Tesla's gross profit per vehicle was $16,660 in GAAP terms and $22,634 by
its internal non-GAAP accounting.
Holistically, Tesla's GAAP net loss per vehicle was $19,059, while its
non-GAAP net loss was $5,081.

Except he won't say why.

Unum's shtick is to spew criticism (and to accuse *others* of being
haters), not to justify it.

Yer back is against the wall and there is no escape, google kiddie.
So the claim that they "could stop losing money simply by
ceasing production" was an outright lie. Keep on running, boy.
Why does been a hillbilly suck?

One year a hillbilly gets $100k driving a truck and pays $50k in gas
and repairs.
Then they take out a $250k loan to buy a home.
Suddenly they figga driving a truck made a net loss of at least $200k
and decide to quit their job to improve their profit margin.

Bzzt. And there you have the reason Chumpsky can neba make it as an accountant.
Also a red flag went up in the CRA that he might not be claiming
expenses related to just earning an income.

A profitable quarter still doesn't mean Teslas are profitable.
The cars are only profitable when lifetime net earnings go positive.
Not even a snowball's chance in hell of that happening any time soon.
Wall Street pulls this trick all the time where a
large, long term expense, like from a merger, is
all written off on a single quarter... though the
costs are occurring over YEARS sometimes. Anyhow,
on paper they're profitable the very next quarter,
perhaps even seeing an increase in profit even
though they're losing cash by the bucket...

Tesla is hiding product data, production money and
profit margins because it's all good news.

This much is a fact: You don't hide good news!

Q2 earnings: 717.5M loss

$717.5M / 55,000 = $13,045 loss per unit.

How come nothing from the green communists on China's plan to expand coal-power production 25%? Seems like that would mean a considerable increase in greenhouse gases and real pollution.

How come nothing from the green communists on
China's plan to expand coal-power production
25%? Seems like that would mean a considerable
increase in greenhouse gases and real pollution.
But the east end of a tiny village in Austria is
burning wood from an Old Growth forest which may
release far more CO2 than even coal but, in a
couple of hundred years the trees they're thinking
of replanting will have absorbed just as much, so
it's 100% carbon neutral... providing everyone dies
after the first year.

SO YOU'RE WRONG!
