John Peterson is the anti-Tesla voice on the internet. Reading his blog reveals that he is deeply involved in the development of a micro-hybrid battery technology which would reduce gasoline consumption by 5% to 15%. "The primary goal of all micro-hybrids is simply turn the engine off when it's not powering the wheels." ref: . So he is promoting vehicles that basically use gasoline as their fuel source. He definitely has an agenda and so do we. We want to get off our dependence on oil, save the planet and save us some money. His solution would keep us dependent on oil and make him a lot of money. His articles attacking Tesla look impressive. They are full of complicated technical information and fancy graphics which lead to his predetermined conclusions. He is like a climate change denier, distorting the truth, confusing and misleading people. One of his articles claims that the Tesla reservation agreement is legally flawed and puts the buyer at risk. He is an attorney and he makes a very impressive legal argument assuming Tesla goes bankrupt. He claims that Tesla is a failure and that Lithium-Ion batteries were a bust. He wants you to believe that using batteries as a fuel tank is inefficient, very expensive and has no future. I guess he is really scared of Tesla. Remember, you want to get off dependence on oil, he wants you to stay dependent on oil !!!
