Re: The death throes of fossil fuels

Your mate, Elon, refers to them as “fool cells” Google it. So what? He obviously has a strong opinion that it's not the right technology. He might even be right. I don't know. But maybe he is right? What do you think? Do you think there is any chance he is right? And who cares if he calls them fool...

Mog, think about Musk's position here.

UFO footage is always grainy, blurred and mostly black-and-white.
