Elon Musk becomes 'low-carbon transportation' advisor to the government of... the UK?!

 Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors and electric vehicle visionary (as well as solar visionary, space visionary, and internet visionary) will now advise UK Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg on how to hasten the adoption of low-carbon transportation technologies like electric cars (and hopefully also bikes).

It would be great if the U.S. government asked for more advice from those who are actually doing the work in the trenches, and not just for electric cars.

In his keynote speech on environmental issues this morning, Clegg called on the UK to become a “global leader in the production and adoption” of low-emission vehicles and said the future of Britain’s £11 billion ($18 billion) auto industry depends on green cars, the London Evening Standard reports.
