Some proof that we’re being stupid

#1: Some hackers start 3D-printing and sharing shapefiles for medical equipment. They promptly get sued.
#2: Tesla is told it can’t keep making cars. EVERY CAR IS 30kwh ON THE HOOF. If the grid goes down.. and it might, disasters don’t always come at you one at a time.. they could run oxygen concentrators and ventilators just by attaching a inverter to the 12V battery and leaving the car turned on but in park. Think of a electric car as a ‘bucket’ for carrying power from the grid to places that might have lost it. Tesla is one of the few mfgrs who should be scaling up.. along with makers of solar panels, batteries, and wire. We don’t know how bad this is gonna be, but.. if naught else, we’ll be better prepared next time.

    I totally thought something similar about Tesla. Shouldn’t they be scaling up rather than ceasing operations? Shutting down an EV producer makes very little sense.

    I think the logic is probably that this one won’t get that bad. Or maybe they’ve told Tesla to start making electric ambulances with built in ventalators and O2 concentrators and a sealed interior that can be a O2 tent instead.
