Description

A few weeks ago Elon Musk presented his mission to an audience and the German economy minister Sigmar Gabriel. Well, the moderation of that event was, let us say: not optimal, but the arguments Elon Musk presented were stunning. This model tries to capture them challenging the reply of Minister Gabriel.

Here is a video of that event:

A very good tv documentary on the automotive industry's lobby against e-mobility: https://youtu.be/XQelhFzK3Po

Here is a nice summary from James Hansen on the relevance of CO2 taxation: http://www.resilience.org/stories/2015-12-10/what-worries-the-world-s-most-famous-climate-scientist

Now I have further elaborated Sigmar Gabriel's possible argument that a CO2 taxation could risk jobs. If it leads to comparative disadvantages of German industries it might be right in the short run. If a taxation would refer to the footprints of products it would mean only products that are more for exports than for domestic customers could face disadvantages in the the short run. However, in the long run any taxation should lead to an advantage. And now let us think that we could internationally agree on a taxation on CO2 emissions (which would equal the taxation of a footprint).

I have added Tesla's move to share their patents for free as well as the dispute on the EU regulation on charging stations.
