The Curious Case Of The Highly Managed History Of The Electric Car. The Selling Of Yesteryear’s Reality, Sold As The Future Today.  Another New Era Of More Of The Same Story Of Old.

I watch as the wild black swans fly over With their phalanx turned to the sinking sun;

The black swan theory or theory of black swan events is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight. The term is based on an ancient saying which presumed black swans did not exist, but the saying was rewritten after black swans were discovered in the wild.

The Swanning Of America And The Curious History Of Ediswan (Thomas Edison-Joseph Swan). The Selling Of  Yesteryear’s Reality, Sold As The Future Today.  Another New Era Of More Of The Same Story Of Old.

As we grind forward on the treacherous path toward a normalized global government of onerous dictums. A dark flock of ominous swans circles the horizon, the ever-lit other side of which requires we go through the darkened sky.

Indeed, the melee of swans, beautiful creatures elegantly characterized to represent the momentary confusion of the befuddled masses and the onslaught of the mechanized forces, milling, grinding the spirit of all who oppose lawlessness of the deep state.  

The surety of each generation forgetting the past is known by each generation buying into the culture that buys and sells their enslavement.  Pick any household product name and then start reading on the history of that family name.  More often than not, it is a sickening, gross infringement of the true advancement of the culture of man by those family names.  Then yin yangian merger of family names is a doubling down, or exponentially compounding of the damage done to their fellow man.  The history of the Ediswan corporation is a penultimate description of the juting of man into the global tapestry to be ground underfoot of the Power Elite.  The Edison Swan company’s history is that of exploiting the very people it claims to be empowering.

Ponders End is a factory with a particularly important history due to its long-standing monopoly over the British lamp industry, and because of its association with the invention of many other important electrical devices, such as the first thermionic valve. Its original owners, Ediswan Electric, held the immensely valuable combined patents of both Swan and Edison and the company ruthlessly excercised its power to shut down infringers at every opportunity. It did not adjust well to the competitive industry that sprang up following the expiry of its patents, and the incandescent lamp operations lost considerable market share. Following a series of takeovers lampmaking ceased in the 1950s, with the rest of the site continuing until its ultimate closure in 1969.

Early History

Within five years of the foundation of Swan’s electric light company and its swift amalgamation with Edison’s British operations to form Ediswan, the company was transformed into one of the most powerful manufacturers in the world. Production was being scaled up with increasing frequency thanks to the combination of three unique pillars of power : the superiority of its lamps in both performance and cost, the strength of its brand name which associated it with the two principal inventors of the incandescent lamp, and the fact that it held the immensely valuable patents of both Swan and Edison, and rather than licensing use of these to its competitors, the company chose to close them down and take over the production volume itself. Perhaps the only other lighting company in the world which enjoyed such colossal commercial power was General Electric of USA, which found itself enjoying similar benefits to Ediswan on the other side of the Atlantic.

By 1886 the company’s previous factory at Benwell had reached the limits that could be provided both by that building, as well as the availability of skilled workers that could be drawn from the small town. In March of that year new premises at Ponders End in East Middlesex were identified, in an old Jute mill on Duck Lees Lane. The weaving of Jute was going out of fashion with the local workforce, and the death of that industry provided a conveniently sized industrial site for the rapidly growing Ediswan operations as well as being within ready reach of an almost unlimited pool of human labour, which could be drawn via the railway lines from nearby London. By the end of May 1886 the relocation of machinery, lamp stocks and a substantial portion of the skilled Benwell workforce had been completed.

In the early days Ponders End was a site of monumental scientific significance. Not only because of its pioneering position in the development and manufacture of the incandescent lamp, but also due to the numerous spinoff products that quickly emerged. Countless names of scientific significance spent their formative years at Ponders End – for instance Sir William Thompson (later Lord Kelvin), Sir William Crookes, Sir George Stokes, Sir James Dewar, Dr. Ambrose Fleming, Sir Frederick Abel, Dr. John Hopkinson, and of course Sir Joseph Swan himself. Perhaps even more important for the modern world than Ediswan’s invention of the incandescent lamp was the development of the very first electronic valves, which took place under the direction of Dr. Fleming at Ponders End. Valves led on to the development of Cathode Ray Tubes and the already vast manufacturing complex grew further to accommodate these product lines, as well as a whole host of other small domestic electrical appliances.  http://www.lamptech.co.uk/Documents/Factory%20-%20UK%20-%20Ponders%20End.htm

Electric Cars May Rule the World’s Roads by 2040 | New analysis suggests the gasoline engine may be like the horse-and-buggy a century ago: doomed to a rapid demise.

Should California spend $3 billion to help people buy electric cars?

Why Elon Musk is a fast talking hustler who preys upon scientifically illiterate bureaucrats to siphon billions of dollars from taxpayers

Who gave the go-ahead for the electric car to overtake the automobile market?  A rich history of so-called failures to harness the electric car have Edison as a central figure.

Flash forward in reverse, the FUTURE has finally arrived, albeit a highly managed unveiling of techno-you, and you have a mix-match of the same old corporate players, with “newcomers” still exploiting the people, the people without sufficient means to power their here-now subsistence, nor their future “retirement”, when they are too feeble to work.  With work place and work force as we know it, set to be a moot moat of despair, as humanity’s obsolescence is rolled out.

The electric car is nothing new. Ninety years ago, Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, two of America’s greatest innovators, tried building one and failed. Daniel Strohl of Hemmings Blog tells us how they killed the electric car. —Ed.

Edison, by the way, was himself no stranger to electric cars. Bryan noted in Friends, Families and Forays that Edison built a battery-powered front-wheel-drive electric in 1895, and he’s noted as owning a few of the very expensive electric cars then in production.

1910 Electric Car
To inventor Thomas Edison in the early 1900s, electric cars looked like the future of transportation.

Although better known for inventions such as the light bulb and motion pictures, Edison also designed three electric cars using his nickel-iron Edison Storage Batteries. Here he is seen standing beside a model that left New York on a 1,000-mile promotional “ideal tour” in September 1910, charging along the way and ending with an ascent up New Hampshire’s Mount Washington.

If the light bulb has not yet gone on that humans are slated for the trash heap of history, then it’s time to pull your head out of the silica, and enlighten your eyes by reading the future as forthtold in Scripture.  The strategic trends that illuminate the news headlines of today are the evidence that we are not alone in the universe.  And the superclass that presides over humanity is the same set of families of old, retold, repackaged, replicated as humans, but charlatans nonetheless.  Humanity is the product and we are ushering in the end of humanity with open arms.  If you are not pushing back on the rollout of the robopocalypse, you should be, and the mere motion of pushback, can be done by educating yourself on the who’s who of the Great Men Of the Earth and their plans for man.  No scammer ever liked the light flooding their machinations conducted in the murky waters of the swamp “Conspiratoria“.  And as we ask, “Who is Elon Musk?”, likewise let us ask “Who is “X” and why are they doing the job they are doing?”  More likely than not, whoever it is in the spotlight, they were placed there for a very specific reason, and more likely than not, their “work” is not going to benefit the common man.

In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Likewise let us consider less in unplannned in the world of manufacturing, where planning is of necessity considering the revenue of billions of dollars on the line.

As we transition to a true Electric Age, a truly wireless age as Tesla (yeah, the guy who wanted to give us The Future and was robbed of his future) envisioned (I still don’t understand why folk don’t revolt and ask why Musk was allowed to roll out the future, along with all the other come-out-of-nowhere gmotes); we must remember the past, the past foisted upon us, that future which is robbing us of the prosperity of those who sacrificed for their posterity.  As “peak oil” explodes and the combustion engine era smoke dissipates, never forget the players, the men who gave us the world we now live in.

Nikola Tesla was beyond a doubt the greatest genius of the 20th century. Our way of life today, the technology that we take for granted, is all possible because of this one incredible man from Europe. 

However, despite all of his contributions to science, his name is little remembered outside the field of electronics and physics. In fact, Thomas Edison is often mistakenly credited in school textbooks with inventions that were developed and patented by Tesla.

When Tesla died on January 7, 1943 at the age of 86, representatives of the Office of Alien Property, at the request of the FBI, went to the Hotel New Yorker and seized all of Tesla’s belongings. Two truckloads of papers, furniture and artifacts were sent under seal to the Manhattan Storage and Warehouse Company.

This load was added to the almost thirty barrels and bundles that had been in storage since the 1930’s, and the entire collection was sealed under orders from the OAP.

Strange behavior, considering that Tesla was a legal American citizen.

Supposedly, you can view Tesla’s documents on these two FBI sites.

And dutiful researchers have pointed out the peculiar connection of Donald Trump’s uncle, MIT professor, John G. Trump.
Always keep in mind the hidden history, and take for granted that a deliberate obfuscation of reality is at play.

It is interesting to note the history symbolized by Musk’s Tesla (named after Nikolai Tesla) Model S (Ford’s Model T) and obvioisly as written above, Edison, who most think of when they think of electric inventions.  All “great men of the earth”, those who manage the future we experience.

  1. California Considers Following China With Combustion-Engine Car Ban – Bloomberg

    California Considers Following China With Combustion-Engine Car Ban

    The internal combustion engine’s days may be numbered in California, where officials are mulling whether a ban on sales of polluting autos is needed to achieve long-term targets for cleaner air.

    Governor Jerry Brown has expressed an interest in barring the sale of vehicles powered by internal-combustion engines, Mary Nichols, chairman of the California Air Resources Board, said in an interview Friday at Bloomberg headquarters in New York. The earliest such a ban is at least a decade away, she said.

    Brown, one of the most outspoken elected official in the U.S. about the need for policies to combat climate change, would be replicating similar moves by China, France and the U.K.

    “I’ve gotten messages from the governor asking, ‘Why haven’t we done something already?’” Nichols said, referring to China’s planned phase-out of fossil-fuel vehicle sales. “The governor has certainly indicated an interest in why China can do this and not California.”

    Embracing such a policy would send shockwaves through the global car industry due to the heft of California’s auto market. More than 2 million new passenger vehicles were registered in the state last year, topping France, Italy or Spain. If a ban were implemented, automakers from General Motors Co. to Toyota Motor Corp. would be under new pressure to make electric vehicles the standard for personal transportation in the most populous U.S. state, casting fresh doubts on the future of gasoline- and diesel-powered autos elsewhere.

    The Association of Global Automakers said consumers must be able to afford the cleaner cars that California says are needed to meet its climate goals. The trade association represents Toyota, Honda Motor Co. and other overseas carmakers in the U.S.

    “We have been working with California on intelligent, market-based approaches to emissions reductions beyond 2025, and we hope that this doesn’t signal an abandonment of that position,” Global Automakers Chief Executive Officer John Bozzella said in a statement.

    California has set a goal to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 80 percent from 1990 levels by 2050. Rising emissions from on-road transportation has undercut the state’s efforts to reduce pollution, according to Next 10, San Francisco-based non-profit.

    “To reach the ambitious levels of reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, we have to pretty much replace all combustion with some form of renewable energy by 2040 or 2050,” Nichols said. “We’re looking at that as a method of moving this discussion forward.”

    Legal Means

    California has the authority to write its own pollution rules, which dates back to the 1970 Clean Air Act. Those rules are underpinned by waivers granted by the Environmental Protection Agency.

    Nichols said the state would likely take a different legal route to enable a possible ban rather than use an EPA waiver, since the Trump administration would be unlikely to approve one. For example, California could use vehicle registration rules or control the vehicles that can access state highways, she said.

    “We certainly wouldn’t expect to get a waiver for that from EPA,” Nichols said. “I think we would be looking at using some of our other authorities to get to that result.”

    China will likely order an end to sales of all polluting vehicles by 2030, the chairman of electric-carmaker BYD Co. said Thursday. France and the U.K. have announced 2040 as their end date for sales of fossil fuel-powered cars.

    A ban for California could also still be decades away from implementation, and just how far out remains to be seen, Nichols said.

    “There are people who believe, including who work for me, that you could stop all sales of new internal-combustion cars by 2030. Some people say 2035, some people say 2040,” she said. “It’s awfully hard to predict any of that with precision, but it doesn’t appear to be out of the question.”
