If I wanted to kill Tesla, I have a perfect weapon. TIME. Just lean back and cross your arms – watch the whole misery unfold. Don’t do even a thing – its a waste of time and effort. Nobody can save Tesla if he tried. I think big oil is smart enough to have realized that. So, that’s what they do. Nothing.
Elon Musk has always hated the fossil-fuel industry. His stated mission for Tesla Inc. is to hasten its demise, and more than once he’s blamed the “unrelenting and enormous” power of oil interests for sabotaging his efforts. But now, in his bid to take Tesla private, Musk is courting billions of oil dollars.
