A Dose of Inspiration To Get Your Day Going...

Leonardo DiCaprio visited the Tesla Gigafactory as part of making his latest film - a documentary on the effects of global warming called 'Before The Flood'.
He spoke with Tesla CEO Elon Musk who explained the need for the Gigafactory, which when fully operational, will be able to supply the same volume of batter power as all the worlds current factories put together. In the video below is a snippet of the conversation between Mr DiCaprio and Mr Musk.
"How is this going to help developing nations that have massive populations that need to have power?"
"The advantage of having solar and batteries is that you can avoid building power plants at all...
"It's like what happened with landline phones versus cellular phones. In a lot of developing countries, they just didn't do the landline phones, they just went straight to cellular."
What legends have learnt and realised is that in order to help other people develop and succeed, they need to pass on the lessons that they have learnt. This clip from 'Before The Flood' is an example of how this is being done on an industrial scale!
