Billionaire Elon Musk unfollows America President Joe Biden on Twitter – ghanapublisher.com

Elon Musk says he pitched the Biden administration on instituting a carbon tax as a way to encourage a faster shift to renewable energy, but he was told the idea was essentially “too politically difficult.”

In an interview by Rogan, he asked Musk whether a new technological breakthrough is needed to increase the adoption of battery-powered vehicles. Musk argued the bigger issue is that “a hell of a lot of batteries [are] needed” in order to shift away from fossil fuels and toward renewable energy. The best way to encourage that shift, in Musk’s view, is to “put a price on carbon.”

“My top recommendation honestly would be just to have a carbon tax,” Musk said. “Because we’re not paying for the CO2 capacity of the oceans and atmosphere, we have what in economics is called an unpriced externality. The market is unable to respond to an unpriced externality. If we just put a price on it, the market will react in a sensible way.”

Musk has even previously called for a “revolt” against the fossil fuel industry while making the case for a carbon tax, and he accused big oil companies of conspiring against Tesla. But he said on Rogan’s podcast that he is “not in favor of demonizing the oil and gas industry” because it would upset the people working in it, and also stopping its operations completely would mean everyone would “die of starvation, basically.”

“We’re gonna need to burn fossil fuels for a long time. The question is just at what rate do we move to a sustainable energy future?” he said.

In a recent interview granted by Donald Trump at CNBC with Joe Kernen at the World Economic Forum, former United States President Donald Trump said enough nice things about billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.

“You have to give him credit. I spoke to him very recently, and he’s also doing the rockets,” Trump told Kernen. “He likes rockets. And he does good at rockets, too, by the way. I never saw where the engines come down with no wings, no anything, and they’re landing. I said, ‘I’ve never seen that before.’” Trump also, bafflingly, pledged to defend Musk against unnamed enemies.

The current administration of the united states of America led by Joe Biden have gone logger heads with Elon on his advocates for switching from fossil fuels cars to battery cars.

A very big renowned tech company in the Uinted States, @BigtechAlert has indicated this morning that, the world’s 2nd billionaire Elon Musk has unfollowed the Current president of America Joe Biden on the White House’s main twitter account @POTUS which has president Biden’s name on the barfront.

Below is how the announcement was made on twitter.
