Although the Tesla Model 3 doesn’t produce any emissions itself, the power plant that generates the electricity used to charge its batteries probably does.
Your battery-powered vehicle is only as green as your electricity supplier

+Jason Werner Agreed. Actually once any of these possibilities gets some traction to take some of the pressure off, we'll probably get more sensible about the whole thing. One day we'll look back at the incredible bounty of organic hydrocarbons in the ground accumulated over millennia and feel disbelief that we merely burned the stuff instead of using organic chemistry to the max to produce foodstocks and products beyond our current imagination.

UNICEF is testing drones in Malawi to see if they can reduce waiting times for HIV test results in rural areas. 
Malawi has started a test program that uses drones to improve access to HIV testing for babies, since factors including poor roads and high transportation costs can result in delays in testing that prevent access to treatment. Sharon Reich reports.

+Jesus M. Candelario Yeah, if Amazon can deliver that package of tooth whitening gel to entitled consumers, then use the drones for more than test results - let them really help.

A 60 Minutes segment this week outlined several ways hackers can hijack phones from anywhere in the world. That hacking method exploited an unsecured, decades-old telecom protocol called Signaling System 7.
The lack of security built into phone networks leaves callers vulnerable to snooping, but the growth of encrypted communications will help protect privacy

Oh yes, they spread far and wide... and I'm pretty sure that the West won't bat an eye if they spread into the soft belly of China soon ;)

They are being used as proxies, but they of course have agendas of their own, which they hope to further in the shadow of the big powers.
I don't see this ending before those powers have agreed on the exact way in which they will incorporate what they envision as the "New World Order".

Assurance companies will first raise their prices and later refuse to cover manual drivers. Public opinion tends to be influenced easily by numbers; authorities will progressively ban manual driving, it's a matter of time.
You can't ride bikes or horses automatically, but it's very feasible a future obligation to ride with a beacon or some similar positioning system. Again, matter of time.
I'm not buying safety if to be paid with personal freedom, but that's my opinion.
