Elon Musk's subsidized luxury toys for the rich

Elon Musk has announced an updated Tesla Model S with a 315-mile battery that starts at only $134,500.  I almost got on the phone to order one at that low price, where I could go almost 200 miles before I start looking to recharge.

The average income of a Tesla S owner is $293,200, and the median family income in the U.S. is around $50,000.

Isn’t it a great tax policy to subsidize billionaires like Musk and the very well-to-do $7,500 per toy?  Does anyone think these wealthy people actually give a hoot about their carbon footprint?

Does it make sense to subsidize lithium and the other pollutants to make supposedly “green” cars while regulating the heck out of the clear, innocuous, non-polluting CO2 that makes plants grow?

It is record cold in Europe this year.  I assume that the reason this isn’t reported is that it just doesn’t fit the agenda.  President Obama, Kerry, Hillary, Gore, and the EPA should be asked a few simple questions: if rising CO2 causes warming, how can we see record cold temperatures?

How come it cooled so much from 1945 to 1976 despite rapid industrialization, exponential fossil fuel growth, and rapid population growth?  The temperature declined so much that the “experts” were predicting a disastrous coming ice age.

How come we have had one of the mildest 11-year periods of hurricanes on record after Katrina despite the dire predictions?

Does anyone believe that politicians who have no idea how to fix youth unemployment, how to write a health bill, how to balance a budget, and how to handle a J.V. team like ISIS can establish policies to control the temperatures within one degree hundreds of years out and control the sea levels within a few inches?  I believe that it is extremely arrogant and ignorant to believe that politicians or people can control the climate, and I have no idea how anyone determined what the proper sea level or temperature would be after billions of years of constant climate change.
