It's not the "best" instrument, it's the ONLY instrument. Tragedy of the Commons anyone? My externalizing costs by poisoning my factories neighbors can theoretically be corrected by market forces through liability suits (though the collateral damage until the correction takes place can be horrific, see Minamata Bay*), something as amorphous as global warming doesn't have that direct causality going for it. Just an ever increasing data point on the Keeling...
So all those engineers they've scuppered from Tesla etc. have been working on a TARDIS! Revolutionize sales AND transportation in one fell swoop. #OnlyApple

They're just out testing iOS 9 on the new iPhone 6s: bolted to a mininvan so no jackass employee loses the $^*(*&%% thing in another bar!
Odds are huge it's "replacing" a rutabaga field. Same siting needs, sunlight. Monterey county is a big place... and it's looking like it's almost due south of Coalingahttp://www.mercurynews.com/portlet/article/html/imageDisplay.jsp?contentItemRelationshipId=6592934 FYI Using Apple Maps and searching for "California Flats, CA" nails the location down. A 149 mile drive from Monterey proper...
I expect that any Apple car would be aimed at the 80% or so of Americans that live in an urban area, so mappable, then the cars get ride shared (declining numbers of people want to own cars especially among younger people) and given the distances are manageable electric makes sense. Driver assistance wouldn't require nearly the reported effort and it being fielded already by multiple manufacturers it would be a LONG tail chase for Apple...
And not for private ownership. Odds are an urban ride share vehicle. The numbers showing younger people's disinterest in owning a private car will play right into this. You use Apple Pay to sign up for an AppleCar you pick up on an as needed basis from a charging station just like all the bike share systems. So not a competition with existing car manufacturers, a replacement concept for a specific usage group: urban residents. Expanding the shared-use vehicle structure....
Perhaps you didn't get the update? Because ApplePay is the top listed option on my Starbucks app today. ETA: Ah, *auto-reload*. not familiar with that route.Sounds like an app bug.
And with reprocessed fuel comes the "weapons grade" boogeyman.... a more political barrier for the past few decades than technical...
FWIW This CRS report has the relevant comparisons for various fuel types, it's just too bad it's from 2008...  Power Plants: Characteristics and Costs      http://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL34746.pdf   ArtDent> So a little airborne distribution of a couple tons of plutonium would just give the old gene pool a vigorous swirl....
