CalPERS Rejects Musk's $56B Tesla Pay Package

CalPERS, the California Public Employees’ Retirement System, is making waves. They’ve decided to vote against Elon’s audacious $56 billion pay package. Now, you might be thinking, “TeslaDan, why are you so interested in this?” Well, my astute reader, it’s not every day that an organization slated to make an 11x return on their investment balks at a CEO’s pay. It’s like refusing free guacamole at Chipotle—downright un-Californian, some might say. Excessive Compensation or Well-Deserved Reward? CalPERS, those stewards of pensions, see this pay package as excessive. They argue that it’s not tied to Tesla’s long-term profitability and, frankly, doesn’t incentivize Elon to push harder. I get it. It’s a lot of money, even by Silicon Valley standards. But here’s the thing: Elon’s already a multi-billionaire. Money isn’t his primary motivator. He’s driven by a vision, a desire to transition the world to sustainable energy, and maybe even get us to Mars. CalPERS Takes a Stand Don’t ge

NIO's Hardline Approach on Vlogger Raises Concerns for Honest EV Reviews

As a Tesla enthusiast and vlogger, I have always appreciated the freedom to express my thoughts and opinions on the electric vehicle industry. However, it seems that NIO, a Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer, has taken a hardline approach on a fellow vlogger, Li Xiang, by threatening legal action for negative reviews of their cars. This news raises a few questions in my mind about the state of the industry and the importance of honest reviews.

The Importance of Honest Reviews

As a vlogger, my main goal is to provide unbiased and honest reviews of electric vehicles. This is not only helpful for consumers who are looking to purchase a car, but also for manufacturers who can use this feedback to improve their products. If manufacturers like NIO start threatening legal action on vloggers who provide negative feedback, it could create a chilling effect on honest reviews and lead to a less informed consumer base.

The State of the Industry

The electric vehicle industry is still in its infancy, and as such, it is important for manufacturers to be receptive to feedback from consumers and vloggers alike. If manufacturers like NIO do not take this feedback seriously and instead choose to silence negative reviews, it could hinder the progress of the industry as a whole. It is important for manufacturers to be open to constructive criticism and use it to improve their products.


As a vlogger, I believe that it is crucial to provide honest and unbiased reviews of electric vehicles. While it is understandable that manufacturers like NIO may not always appreciate negative feedback, it is important for them to be receptive to it and use it to improve their products. Threatening legal action on vloggers who provide negative reviews is not the solution and could ultimately harm the industry as a whole.
