I wish Musk will not commit so many of these unforced errors. Why even get involved publicly with the Thai cave rescue?
Pick a twitter war with some soldier? Some decent guy, got well earned fame for doing something good, and you will never come off good picking a fight with him.
Cave rescue, the boring company are distractions that we can do without. When three huge industries with half trillion dollar annual revenue each (oil companies, car makers and the utilities) are gunning after you, you cant afford to get involved in these random altercations.
BEV are not out of the woods yet, and oil companies would really love to kill it. Car makers are likely to realize "we are not in ICE business, we are in transportation business" and change sides, eventually after sense pounded into their skulls and the battery price drops another 30%.
