The Case for Nationalizing Elon Musk 12.2.2018 Truthout - All Articles
On Tuesday, Elon Musk launched some stuff into space. The SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket was shot into the Solar System, tailed by a Tesla Roadster blasting David Bowie songs, reportedly the fastest car ever to be released into orbit. Each Falcon launch is only expected to cost around $90 million -- a bargain in the world of extraterrestrial exploration.  Scientific American  gawked , "Elon Musk Does It Again," praising the "bold technological innovations and newfound operational efficiencies that allow SpaceX to not only build its rockets for less money, but also reuse them." That view -- shared by several other outlets -- fits comfortably with the Tony Stark-like image Musk has crafted for himself over the years: a quirky and slightly off-kilter playboy genius inventor capable of conquering everything from outer space to the climate crisis with the sheer force of his imagination. One of Musk's long-term goals is to create a self-sustaining colony on Mars, and make humanity an interplanetary species. He ...

How Donald Trump Plans to Enlist Fossil Fuels in the Struggle for Global Dominance 12.2.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Choose journalism that empowers movements for social, environmental and economic justice: Support the independent media at Truthout! The new US energy policy of the Trump era is, in some ways, the oldest energy policy on Earth. Every great power has sought to mobilize the energy resources at its command, whether those be slaves, wind-power, coal, or oil, to further its hegemonic ambitions. What makes the Trumpian variant -- the unfettered exploitation of America's fossil-fuel reserves -- unique lies only in the moment it's being applied and the likely devastation that will result, thanks not only to the 1950s-style polluting of America's air, waters, and urban environment, but to the devastating hand it will lend to a globally warming world. Last month, if you listened to the chatter among elite power brokers at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, you would have heard a lot of bragging about the immense progress being made in renewable energy. "My government has planned a major campaign," ...
