“The stupidest thing I could possibly imagine.”

Elon Musk on unsustainable energy and climate change:

[W]e are going to run out of [fossil fuel] and we have to find an alternative. So why are we running this massive chemical experiement on our oceans and atmosphere when we know we have to find an alternative anyway …it’s the stupidest thing I could possibly imagine.

The video is a few years old, from 2012, and hints to Tesla’s later work in energy storage. Covers a wide range of topics from taxation to the solarization incentive for Walmart.

Definitely a compelling (and short) talk.
