Article criticle of Tesla

Does anyone have an opinion regarding The Street article by John Petersen:
http://www.thestreet.com/story/11759628/1/tesla-motors-pollutes-today-fo...

In this article the author refers to a 2011 study comparing estimated total costs of different vehicle types. I really like Tesla"s goals,and love the Tesla products. Would really like to challenge this criticism. Any thoughts?

Looks to be a John Petersen article! He is anti Tesla!

That guy is highly biased and has an agenda. I have read a couple of his past articles and wish I could get back the time I wasted doing so.

Peterson is a tool. Writes on Seeking Alpha often, always slamming Tesla. Haters gotta hate.

Don't bother, he can't be reasoned with, only outcomes can prove him wrong and even the he will never admit it. Early on he said they would never release the car. Then he said no one would buy it, the year long waiting list has that one covered. Now in anti-tesla evangelical zeal he is scraping the barrel for articles suggesting EV's are so emissions intensive in manufacture they will never make it up in decreased emissions during their lifetime. He dismisses any opposition or studies making the alternate claim as EVangelical rationalisation. My suggestion is move on.

Petersen's objectivity is compromised by his lead-acid battery financial interests.

His Teslas-bashing mission is shameless, and continues even though he has been very clearly outed.

He seeks to slow the EV transition so as to reduce the impact on his old line interests.

For Tesla, success is the ultimate counter-argument.

3 Car of the Year covers, and counting.

Counting the MT chicken just prior to hatching, I suspect! ;)

Motor Trend Car of the Year-- John Petersen's dark overlords are going to have to work him extra hard now :o)

He's going to eat it just like all the others dumb enough to short TSLA

Hey, some folks like this guy will go the way of the diansour to the very end, and I am good with that. He is entitled to his biased openion, and I appreciate reading what some of these silly speculators have to say about many things, because, it gives me a counter-weight to know when I should invest opposite to them.

For the record, the last four years have been a windfall for me, so please John, keep writing, and I'll keep making money! :-)
