which is why I want to see America tax all goods/service based on the location of the worst sub-part and do it with emissions / $ GDP.
By putting a slowly increasing tax on the parts from bad emitters, while rewarding nations like Sweden who is VERY LOW emissions / $GDP, we get nations to either clean up, or for businesses to quit getting parts from those nations that pollute heavily.
This also has the advantage of getting nations to quit manipulating their money against the $.

What ppl are missing is what will happen with M3. There will not be a single human on the main production line. Sub parts are designed to made by other robots, mixes, or just pure human labor. With this approach, the sub parts should be thoroughly vetted, and final product is expected to not have issues that they have today. In addition, I'm told that m3 line in Fremont will do up to 1.5m / year and that is without the building expansion.

This was a classic case of little lies leading to big ones. NOBODY ever cared for one instant whether this guy was for the Iraq War in 2003. 70% of the population was for it. A normal person would say, "well, I guess I forgot I said that, since after all this was 13 years ago". But that almost sounds like an apology, or at least admitting to an imperfection- which he will not do unless an ISIS fighter is behind him with a sword. Instead he has to double down and construct an imaginary alternative universe of conspiracy theories where people are spreading malicious lies about him, trying to insinuate that he favored the Iraq War- as if anyone ever gave a flying fuck in the first place.
