There is little room for interpretation in the latest move my the illustrious Mr. Musk. Within hours of President Trump‘s decision to formally exit the Paris Accords, Elon Musk decided that he had gone well over the line, and left the President’s Business Panel.
The Paris Accords are a well liked international initiative, and they enjoy popular support from both developed and developing nations. While Trump was making outrageous claims about his dedication to the environment at the recent G7 meeting, the policy actions he has taken foreshadowed this wildly irresponsible move.
Regressive and Dangerous
Elon Musk is a visionary, and while it would appear that he had been willing to engage Trump&Co. for reasons of social development, the exit from the Paris Accords was too much for him to tolerate. It isn’t hard to see why Mr. Musk would be put off by such an idiotic move, especially given his dedication to innovation.
Donald Trump is in a very different position, and is supported by some of the most immoral groups in the United States. The Heritage foundation is a major force in the Trumpian dynamic, and we have no idea how deep that rabbit hole may go.
What is clear now, is that short-term profit will come first in the USA, and any other considerations simply aren’t important. One focus of the Trump administration is the deregulation of energy production, and the removal of safeguards that protected public health.
Well Done Mr. Musk
With his decision to officially move away from President Trump, Elon Musk has demonstrated his dedication to building a world that isn’t run by entrenched economic interests. Tesla is a radically new idea, and in addition to being the world’s first electric car brand, the innovations that Mr. Musk has created in the Gigafactory are truly ground breaking.
The future that Elon Musk is working to create isn’t one where people are subject to dangerous fossil fuels and myopic business interests. Instead he sees a radically different path forward. Unlike many visionaries he is will to brave criticism, and take fantastic risks.
Bold moves create awareness, and Elon Musk is doing the right thing by leaving President Trump in the past.
