    On the other hand, none of the world’s 14 biggest carmakers is fully aligned with the Paris Agreement on climate change, which aims to limit global temperature change to below 2 degrees above pre-industrial norms by 2050.

      Are you including Tesla among those 14 carmakers? Tesla now has a $180+ billion market cap. The largest of any carmaker passing Toyota at $176+ billion.

      • funslinger62 Says:

        When the other automakers join Tesla in producing quality EVs that aren’t just intended as compliance vehicles then the problem of climate change will be significantly reduced.

        However, much more work will need to be done in other areas.

        In Tesla’s case, as with so many non- or minimally-profitable yet highly-promoted tech and social media companies in the past, market cap can represent a lot of unwarranted hype + hope.

        After all, traditional carmakers have a lot of installed sales infrastructure to sell their EVs, while Tesla is still battling state legislatures that are protecting local car dealerships.
