Fiskers 'Ace in the sleeve'. A lot of the people that say Fisker is going to have problems probably hold some kind of short position in the company. Boy are they in for a rude awakening. People are about to lose A LOT of money.
God, I hope so but with so many non-science believers, I unfortunately don't think that's going to happen. We can't get people to believe in climate change, let alone wear masks due to a global pandemic. It kind of feels like the non-evidence-based group is actually growing.
Society today. Its evolution of the human kind. It's mainly due to technology/internet and social media.
Humans are complex and baffling.
Someone once said, "it's easier to fool a man than convince him he's been fooled"
At the same time we have to be careful of labelling everyone. I would be considered a naysayer, Infact in the fiskerati forum some accused me of FUD and being some other dude too. Just because we had a different view.
I have NO DOUBT FISKER WILL HAVE PROBLEMS. It would be possible not to. What is important is they have a solid partner and how reactive they are to problems that occur. I have made many criticisms about them and HF but then realised HF is not Fisker, so cannot blame him on everything. Just as I want him to perfect everything I also want him to delegate to experts as well. I do think some of their notices, info put out, Comms etc has been poor but then if I compare with others they probably not bad. I suspect it's the internet instant need for info that I'm not getting every second that makes me feel like that.
I too hope shorters get burnt as I do want this company to succeed. I think they are more likely but will always have "enemies" undermining them. It's a cut throat business and let's face it some very powerful players have put their money into competitors.
As for evidence and actions.... I used to work with lung cancer patients. See them come in, tell them diagnosis, help them through their diagnosis and many with death. Used to work with a top doc doing this. One day I see that top doc smoking. I got shocked. I asked them why are they smoking given the field we are in and what we see day in day out? They said... My choice.!
Rational explanation don't always mean much!
