G’day, Elon. Emmjay here.
Today CNBC reported that there was a 24 hour blackout in Lebanon.
That’s catastrophic for a bankrupt nation with severe food shortages and as the CNBC report says, this caused food spoilage and food poisoning and God herself knows how anyone can operate a Covid hospital under those conditions.
So I thought I’d check up and see how you’re going cash wise, because, let’s face it, nobody wants to embarrass themselves by putting the bite on a pauper.
Boy was I relieved to see that you have $2 billion dollars. No wait, that was $202 billion. So I guess you’re probably not wandering around with the backside out of your pants and holes in your socks.
And then I remembered that the good people of Lebanon are out of cash and out of electricity. However, being in the Middle East, I’m guessing that they do have a fair bit of sunlight.
And I remembered that your company is in the business of generating electricity from sunlight and storing it in huge batteries.
Now you’re a famously smart guy and I’m betting that you can see where I’m going with this.
So what about you join the dots and show some magnificent global philanthropy. Nobody’s going to call you a mug for stepping in.
And I’ll be happy to put in a good word for you with the Nobel people. If they have’t got a category for single-handedly saving a failed national state, I’ll ask them to make one.
After all, you saved South Australia as a warm up for the major league.
