🌍Tesla Investor Day 3-1-23 And then Musk said; “I really wanted today to be not just about Tesla investors who own stock, but really anyone who is an investor in Earth,” making the event last Wednesday actually the third ever Master Plan Day. The first was 2006 and the second was in 2016.
The man is sharing his vision and he certainly is attempting to revolutionize pretty much everything about the Earth and other planets, saying; "There is a clear path to a fully sustainable Earth with abundance..."
He explained during the 2023 Investor Day event that a fully sustainable civilization requires vast amounts of battery and energy storage. If anyone leans forward into a sustainable future, it is indeed Elon Musk.
Do you think Elon Musk is executing on his vision?
👏Kudos to Elon Musk! The Tesla CEO inched close to regaining the wealthiest person in the world title last week. His EV company has also announced expansion plans to its Sparks, Nevada plant. The Nevada gigafactory is where Tesla has been making its battery cells and EV parts. Tesla announced that it would invest as much as $3.6 billion in expanding the plant to increase its battery production capacity and to start mass-producing its semi trucks.
The gigafactory is currently 5.4 million square feet, and the expansion project will add another 4 million square feet. An updated battery cell factory will enable the production of 100 GWh of battery cells per year, or “enough batteries” to power 2 million EVs annually, according to Tesla. The EV company said the project will add 3,000 new jobs in our new clean energy (green) industry. These jobs also strengthen U.S. energy security. Yes, they are hiring now!

🔋West Virgina moving forward Even though most of the Mountain State's energy generation comes from coal and natural gas, West Virginia has been utilizing hydroelectric for a long time. Some years ago, it started using wind and solar energy. Now energy storage is coming.
"Today we need more diversification," W. Virginia Gov. Justice said. "It's our job to embrace. It's our job to move forward." West Virginia is deepening its commitment to energy diversification and is partnering with Form Energy, a renewable battery technology manufacturer. Form Energy manufactures groundbreaking iron-air, grid-scale battery technology capable of storing power for at least four days.
Gov. Justice signed HB 2882 at the former steel site, and now the new site of Form Energy, with its CEO Mateo Jaramillo present. The bill appropriates $105 million to WV Economic Development Project Fund. The State will contribute $290 million for the project, which will create 750 high-paying jobs. The company will commence construction this year, while production will likely start in 2024.
🤔Carbon tracker Much has been said about the luxurious lifestyles of the rich and famous, which impacts climate and the environment. The wealthiest 1% is responsible for approximately 16% of the world's carbon emissions, mostly from their frequent use of private jets. Seattle-based and 17 year old, Akash Shendure has made it his mission to track the climate footprints of America's wealthiest individuals, aiming to inform the public. His website, ClimateJets.org, calls them out by their names, based on his calculations of the carbon dioxide emissions resulting from their private jet excursions.
Names like Thomas Siebel, the billionaire CEO of C3.ai, the Murdochs, and the DeVos family lead the list on Akash's website. Sam Zell, Mike Bloomberg, Robert Smith, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos are also present. The New York Times Climate Forward newsletter reached out to the two richest men, who claimed they use sustainable aviation fuel.
😭AI from Bing and Google On February 7, Microsoft Inc. launched the all-new, AI-powered Bing search engine and Edge app. On the tech company’s website, it explains:
"What is the new Bing? The new Bing is like having a research assistant, personal planner, and creative partner at your side whenever you search the web. With this set of AI-powered features, you can: Ask your actual question. When you ask complex questions, Bing gives you detailed replies. Get an actual answer. Bing looks at search results across the web to offer you a summarized answer. Be creative. When you need inspiration, Bing can help you write poems, stories, or even share ideas for a project."
For example, the AI internet assistant will relieve you from the stress of opening and going through each page on the web to get answers to any question. It will review results from the web and show you a summarized answer. You can also chat with the AI to enable you to have more concrete interactions with the web to get the best of anything from it.
The AI technology, however, still needs more work. For example, Bing AI argued with some users they were still in 2022, and provided false business results for various companies. As a result, Microsoft said it would make the necessary improvements to the technology. If made perfect, not only will the technology improve our internet experience, but it will also transform how people interact with the web.
