No argument from me on that, however massive improvements in this arena over the last 20 years in the pollution control front have significantly reduced the effects. Combatting congestion would also go along way to reduce those effects.
What about the major negative externalites of ICE (internal combustion engine) cars where society has to pick up the tab?
My comments regarding Tesla subsidies are based on his actions. The car is a by product of tax credits both collected and sold on..... Like I said I'm not knocking the car.... It's evolutionary and setting a high bar, but I don't think in the long run it will survive in its current form. Auto production will be dropped and focus will drill down to battery design and power storage
