https://abc.net.au/news/2021-04-23/elon-musk-offers-millions-remove-carbon-dioxide-earth-day/100090080

Quote
Billionaire Elon Musk has offered inventors $US100 million ($129 million) on Earth Day to fight global warming by developing carbon dioxide removal technology for the "largest incentive prize in history".

Here's an idea. Plant some frigging trees and quit chopping them all down!

Another 'how do I get my name and fugly mug in the news' by Elon again

Elon Musk has money. That's it. He is not a genius and his ideas are plentiful being an eccentric personality but has a lot more 'miss' than 'hit' ideas (like his stupid submarine idea to rescue the kids trapped in a cave)

He brands his car 'Tesla' because someone centuries ago did the work in thinking some things and branding their image. Elon Musk rides on his coattails

If Elon was confident in his own products, the 'Tesla' cars would be known as 'Musk'

Elons Musk.... Eeewww   :o

"What is Elon Musk's IQ? It's estimated that Elon Musk's IQ is 155 though an exact number is not known, at least publicly. Based on a previous aptitude test that he's taken and his various abilities, it is generally accepted that his IQ is around 155.Oct 6, 2020"

Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawkings IQ was estimated around 160. I wouldn't say Elons intellect, certainly in the field of science is anywhere near that level

He has money and is astute at business. If that is what he spends his 'genius' on, it means nothing to the world of science. Elon Musk's character and personality is disgusting. Who calls someone who risks their lives to save children a 'pedo'? Oh, Elon Musk does.

If Elon is so brilliant, he wouldn't need to outsource genius to inventing carbon capture. He'd be able to do the work himself.

Elon has never claimed to be a scientist nor have ever heard anyone reference he is.  His academic degree is in economics and he was a physics drop out.  His first start up companies sold for near $2 billion USD between Paypal and Compaq and is now is one of the wealthiest people in the world.

It's well know that Nicola Tesla had wild ideas and went crazy later in his life.  The Tesla name is very suiting for Musk's unorthodox approach.

He runs a business that invests in tech and while many of his crazy ideas go no farther than discussion, he get's a lot of press from the few ideas that do make it fruition.  His ideas and investments are a huge asset to engineering and science.

Well back to this $100 million prize, you can bet whoever comes up with the genius invention will simply get the $100 million for Elon to buy it off you, so he can patent it under his name, take the credit and then call it something stupid (eg 'Boring company' because it bores HAHAHA forget to laugh at that lame arse Dad joke)

Ok ok. We get it. You think he's a giant dick too.

So apart from him having a gutter trash personality and overblown ego, what about his 100 million 'prize'

I think he's shit, and if I came up with some cool technology like that, I wouldn't give it to him! I'd be paid more by keeping it under my name given almost every business on the planet producing carbon will want it

On the face of it, Elon looks like he's nice, (oh wow! A $100 million prize!) but when you really look at things, you see his dick personality

It's Elon. You invent the tech and he will take the credit. The $100 million is not just an incentive to invent it.... It's hush money to ensure you STFU when you see him increase his billions with it

If I'm wrong, ok. But I bet I'm right

Well fine, if you think 'hush money' is an expression only to be used when something dodgy is occurring then call it  STFU money. Because you will want to sook when you see its a pittance to its actual value

From my words and actions I've estimated my own IQ to be over 400.

First of all, how to you shut someone up in a public contest?  Secondly, what makes you think that there will only be one invention entered in the contest?  Large scale carbon sequestration is going to take a variety of approaches from a lot of different companies.

I mean, you sign over your invention to Elon Musk and you get a 'prize' of $100 million. Elon then turns that prize into a business venture and makes billions. You signed over any rights you had to the invention when you took the $100 million so you must kindly STFU as you watch Elon make all the money and take all the credit for saving the world with your invention

At least, that is my take on Elons offering and what he would do.


Does he look like a trustworthy nice bloke to you?

[H]is ideas are plentiful being an eccentric personality but has a lot more 'miss' than 'hit' ideas (like his stupid submarine idea to rescue the kids trapped in a cave)

And what's wrong with that? Most entrepreneurs have more misses than hits. Musk took large gambles on ideas; luck played a part in that the ones he took the largest gambles on (technologically, business-facing, customer-facing) paid off. He did not sink billions of dollars into a submarine rescue; using that as an example of a bad idea has nothing to do with business success.

Being a genius does not make you as successful a money maker as Musk. Law of large numbers ... lots of people take huge risks. Most fail. Someone will make the exact right choices and land on the top of the heap. If not Musk, someone else.

At which point Shifter would be complaining about how much of a douchenozzle that person is.

When Musk was told to butt out of the rescue because he was not being helpful and when he was told that his stupid submarine wouldn't work he got all offended and retaliated by calling the rescue person a 'pedo guy'.

Elon Musk is a shit garbage human, unworthy of admiration. Who the F calls people risking their lives selflessly to help others pedophiles?

Wait for it, I'm sure the small print will come in time. This is Elon Musk we are talking about. I would be surprised if the $100 million were gifted to a winner with no strings attached.

While removing carbon from the air is great, I think we should be looking at eliminating or heavily reducing our reliance on emitting CO2 in the first place.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-50695593

Interesting. The defense used this "JDart" argument I've never heard of:

"One of the smartest moves by Elon Musk's defence was in introducing the concept of "JDart", an acronym to describe their client's conduct on Twitter in relation to the infamous "pedo guy" tweet.

A JDart, lawyer Alex Spiro explained, meant: a Joke that was badly received, therefore Deleted, with an Apology and then Responsive Tweets to move on from the matter. JDart."


Even more interesting, the Diver guy's attorney was none other than Lin Wood. Wow.

Interesting. The defense used this "JDart" argument I've never heard of:

"One of the smartest moves by Elon Musk's defence was in introducing the concept of "JDart", an acronym to describe their client's conduct on Twitter in relation to the infamous "pedo guy" tweet.

A JDart, lawyer Alex Spiro explained, meant: a Joke that was badly received, therefore Deleted, with an Apology and then Responsive Tweets to move on from the matter. JDart."


Even more interesting, the Diver guy's attorney was none other than Lin Wood. Wow.

Oh yeah, totally exonerates Elon Musk. ::)

I'm not arguing exoneration. I'm not arguing at all. Just found it interesting that he won the defamation suit, especially with that JDart gambit. And that Lin Wood was the plaintiff's attorney. Lin Wood probably being the most well known Defamation lawyer in the US before he when batshit crazy with Trump & Qanon.

As for the prize thing. I don't think it matters who is offering up the cash incentive to at least maybe tackle a portion of the climate crisis, strings or no strings attached. Maybe something good will come of it. We need all the incentives we can muster.
