Shhh for the governator…

It seems to be the week of celebrity endorsements on TOGSH, but I wanted to also share this great analogy from the former Cali governor Arnie S that he presented in Paris yesterday:

“There are two doors. Behind Door Number One is a completely sealed room, with a regular, gasoline-fueled car. Behind Door Number Two is an identical, completely sealed room, with an electric car. Both engines are running full blast.

I want you to pick a door to open, and enter the room and shut the door behind you. You have to stay in the room you choose for one hour. You cannot turn off the engine. You do not get a gas mask.

I’m guessing you chose the Door Number Two, with the electric car, right? Door number one is a fatal choice – who would ever want to breathe those fumes?”

Love it.  Clear, understandable and a great way to shut up climate change deniers.

Wonder if can stick Abbott, Hunt, Dutton and Hockey behind door number one?

Is Tesla ‘all that’?

So, as we all know, climate talks are happening in Paris and anyone with a stake is there.

Tesla S. Cue extended wolf whistle.

Including Elon Musk.  The guy is kind of like Robert Downey Jrs character Iron Man in the Avenger series – very brainy and with lots of cool hardware.  While the details of the Powerwall and it’s emergence onto the precious Australian market are still a little sketchy, the electric vehicles he’s producing have met rave reviews, even from notorious dinosaur-loving PM Malc.

While important leaders are meeting in important places, Mr Musk headed over to the Sorbonne University to give his ideas on carbon pricing and other things to a rapt audience.  I dunno about you, but is it too late to get him to run for US presidential candidacy?  Hey, he can’t do any worse than Chump Trump.
