Coal-mining boss: ‘Tesla is a fraud’

Robert Murray

Robert Murray, CEO of coal-mining giant Murray Energy Corp., went on CNBC to take a stab at Elon Musk and Tesla Motors TSLA, -1.86%  for reaping taxpayer subsidies and failing to make enough profit.

Murray also turned to the topic of climate change.

“By the way, you could close down every coal-fired plant in the United States today, and you would not affect the temperature of the earth at all,” he said.

Musk initially tweeted out a link of the interview before sharing his rebuttal:



Of course, this isn’t the first time Musk has taken to Twitter to tangle with his critics on the thorny issue of subsidies. Earlier this year, he went after fellow billionaires the Koch brothers for their renewed effort to go after electric cars.

A new group could spend $10 million a year on the campaign.

At last check, Tesla shares were up 3% in early Monday trading, though they are still down for the year.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
