Aidan S : The second I saw this video. I thought, I wonder what Elon Musk did this time.

jon doe : The best thing I ever did was buy my Tesla. I drive 60mi a day to and from work. It seems a bit strange not getting gas, but it's just as strange as plugging it in... It's become a habit much like plugging in your cell phone. It is the way to go. Should of done it sooner.

hoanggeneral : This is a little bit too optimistic.

jason henn : the mines used to get the materials for batteries are worse than any fossil fuel sites- what a farce

Guy Austin : Batteries are a delivery system - not an energy source

Benji McCaw : 20 years you reckon half the worlds energy will be renewables fuck off you think solar and wind are each gonna increase by 20% in 20 years after only increasing by .5% in 10 this video is obvious propaganda not once to they mention real studies or facts but possibilities like the possibility that I could be king of England even though I'm a catholic and Irish so straight of the list it annoys me how much bs is being spread

pokejag 04 garage : I'm still using gas cars ferrari and jags from before the 2010s not tesla and Volvo in 5 years

pokejag 04 garage : Are you trying to make Texas give up are massive trucks and big cars

Mladen Diklich : Batteries have a finite charge cycle therefore a limited life span whereas upcoming Solid State Super Capacitors have infinite charge cycles and a little birdie told me that Energy Density of Li-ion in volume, weight and price is soon to be surpassed by Novel Super Capacitors, think Shipstone

Cody F. Bates : Invest accordingly...

JON GILLETTE : The electric car is not really a green source. The batteries are a problem for recycling or getting rid of. More batteries? No. There is a better way.

minners71 : And where are these batteries made? In factories that pump out more pollution than the ones that we already have.

hg2 : Gee! Aren't WE the smartest people in the world! --- There's one problem: the twerp isn't actually selling stuff, he's lobbying for more subsidies and laws to force people to buy this crap.

Perry .Tack Tick : HEY! Think about it, fossil fuel are just ancient batteries in liquid form, they let you convert saved up energy, we just need new batteries not more energy produced. Another form of battery would be wiring the excess power to china so they could wire us power during the our night. Water towers are good non toxic batteries, so are scuba tanks if connected to a air pump and electric generator. So we either need to learn how to share or how to store things. Chemical batteries are terrible because they exploit the earth's non-renewables resources. At least "flow batteries offer some commercial feasibility. The ONLY obstacle to "unlimited free electricity" (and your political freedom from corporations) is in battery technology (wind, solar, tether satellites tech, geothermal etc.) Let the age of BATTERY AGE BEGIN!

Mohammed : Saudi Arabis is gonna go bankrupt.

Bazzralic : imagine a world where butterflies run on batteries...

Rotciv Lhuillier : I can't agree with your video. Here is why: Lithium batteries on a big scale pollute a lot! Plus you didn't consider storing hydrogen in your video which is practical to store energy more longer term. This video was well made but biased towards batteries which I do not agree with!

Ryan Ringa : Do you know how much the process of making batteries pollutes the earth lol mining oar for batteries is one of the most polluting things on earth. As well as when they get old you can't recycle them.

Michael D : It sounds great, but who can tell me, how much CO2 does it cost to produce these batteries? Where do the raw materials come from? Is another third-world country going to suffer exploitation and corruption from our trend? How many years do these batteries last? Are they recyclable and how much does it cost us to recycle them.. in my opinion, the world's biggest pollutants are those nasty pharmaceutical factories and manufacturing plants all around the world, construction and mining sites (...and "luxury" cruise ships which have no filter for their diesel engines... )

kappanisan : Forget about batteries, use compressed air instead. : Battery's that holds electricity power are really bad !!! Think of your car battery, works 5y max then needs replacing, now try to imagine how that would look if you want to make it global for households. Also, there is not enough lithium on the planet or lead to make all those batteries. Best way to store a lot of energy are water holds like dams that push water up to store energy. A big benefit, if it rains you get real free energy !! And not the bs kind.

Hexure : There is another challenge that no one is seeing here. Fossil fuels are an industry. The people profiting millions off this aren't going to give up without a fight. There is eventually going to be a boss battle, and only those with the attention of the community will be able to play. Save us Elon Musk! Your our only hope.

Adelino Denzel : Now the end of Oil dependent Economies is near. ....They will come from King Kong to Monkey. .

gramar sheriff : I bet the oil companies are shaking in their boots right now

cdg : why dont we use dams as batteries.

Maxon Mendel : Aren't batteries bad for the environment?

leonxl : It's all wishful thinking. Most people won't switch cars either because gas cars are cheaper or because they like the power of gas engines. Also, do you really think oil and gas companies are just going to sit back and die? Lol they're not going down without a fight

Kshitiz Rai : i think this video is under-estimating how difficult it is to make batteries.

Mylech XI : I got youuuu! GEET ENGINEs or MAGMETIC TESLA MOTORS OR Nuclear THORIUM ENERGY IT HAS NO RADIATION as Uranium does. Booommmm fuck you BIG OIL!! 🔥💯 yes batteries are going to be even more amazing once we implement nano tech into them :) ❤️

Anton Helsgaun : There isn't enough lithium in the world

James Tomich : The extraction of the rare earths and minerals needed and their pollution during refining is not talked about at all. YOU ARE TOOLS AND FOOLED!!!

MrSubsound90 : Vanadium redox flow batteries have been fairly common on electrical grids for decades, have they disappeared?

thishadowithin : "that day might be coming sooner than you think..." Ummm Not when TRUMP is in power.

shrekvt : Problem is that the earth doesn't have enough lithium and other rare earth materials needed to make all batteries to do this.

Sjoerd T : Are there changes in the sort of battery? I've heard about so called "graphite batteries" 2 years ago, but never heard something about it again...

lyntwo : Graphene based capacitors for power storage.

Satyajeet Panchal : I am really impressed with Bloomberg news sooner than you think. 😉😉😉😉 Awesome video Bloomberg guys. Keep it up.

ItsJay : Still gonna be driving my big block supercharged v8 😎 #murica

alkoristar : Where are you going to dispose old batteries?

Thomas Clyde : What are your sources for all these statistics?

Adam Papp : "Imagine a world where city skies are clean of pollution" Yes, because making batteries, solar panels, etc. is so eco-friendly. These god damn hippies are so up their asses. If you want clear skies move to the country you classist shit.

breatheasy06 : Does anyone talk about the extremely toxic materials in batteries? It's not just about cost!!!


GXM Pyette91 : solar became the cheapest electricity in the world for places on the equator where the sun is longest and brightest all year round... its far too expensive for northern countries to run solely on... plus with starving people in the world and deforestation in massive amounts we are going to have to ask the moral question.... do we give up nature for a 'natural' power source? or give up food in a starving world for a 'clean' energy source? think about that next time.

TheGreatgan : Our battery technology is not improved much in the last few decade.. unless we can solved the barrier.. pumping lithium ion is not the answer

ProneToInfection : Everybody's talking about how dangerous batteries are, but no one seems to offer even a single solution. So you guys think we should stick with oil? Or don't you think if more time and effort was spent on batteries they would improve drastically and some of their issues could be resolved? Or should we look towards hydrogen? Nuclear? Or what's your guys' solution, cause right now everybody sounds like oil lovers

j denzer : I expect this to happen by the year 2000

nighttrain7404 : Do all futuristic guys have to sound like you?

Zeno van Ditzhuijzen : "ideally, batteries" Bogus. Watch this and be inspired: Energy From Mountains | Renewable Energy Solutions watch?v=VadUK8-5OSA

Michael Sabedra : Why aren't there B batteries?
