Time and time again we see news articles portraying electric vehicles as though they are moving blocks of C4 waiting to go off. The propaganda and negativity that floods my twitter feed and LinkedIn timeline day in, day out is becoming a bit of an annoyance (to say the least).
Fortunately for my sanity, I attended Fully Charged Live in Silverstone this weekend where I was surrounded by thousands of electric vehicle fans, owners, advocates, entrepreneurs and enthusiasts who are each doing their bit to accelerate the transition towards emobility by promoting everything good about them.
Stumbling across this article from Inside EVs this afternoon, I was pleased to see highlighted, some very good points about the backwards media using Tesla fires to portray EVs as something they are not.
Please media, just stop it with the nonsense.
on those rare occasions when the battery in a Tesla goes kablooey, a veritable school of sharks instantly appears (maybe alligators, too). Stock market short sellers, click-hungry gutter journalists, tech-hating Luddites, oil-fired anti-EV activists, all rush to join the feeding frenzy.
