A whopping 14 top 20 articles last week were about the Tesla Cybertruck! I think that's a new record for a single product. Nonetheless, quite humorously, the #1 article was about low leases for the Hyundai Ioniq Electric rather than anything about the Cybertruck. The #2 article is an epic article about why the Cybertruck is much more than it seems on the surface, and the #3 piece delves into implications regarding the low battery price Tesla seems to be showing with the Cybertruck pricing and specs

Zero-emissions adaptation is everything in our changing world. Land, sea, and air traffic all need to switch to zero emissions. A favorable example of maritime adaptation comes to us from euronews.com, which invites us to meet Ellen. Ellen means "Sun Ray," or some say "Bright One." Although, Ellen is powered by wind, not solar

A recent article on CleanTechnica, "BBC Click: Are Electric Vehicles 'The Future Of Road Vehicles?' EV Owners: 'Duh.'" basically covered what CleanTechnica and other green energy websites have been saying for years, that EVs are superior to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles in more ways than one. This is not news to informed progressives, but it is very much news to the general public

How does one renew an area devastated by nuclear waste? I think of brilliant Kirusowa's film Dreams. One of the dreams depicts the horror and abyss after the fallout of a nuclear accident.
Indeed, in real life, there are farmlands in Japan that are ruined, land that cannot be cultivated anymore. The Nikkei Asian Review reports mountainous areas where population outflows continue

20 kilometers off the coast of Viana do Castello, Portugal, is about to be the new home to the largest floating wind turbine in the world, an 8.4-megawatt (MW) ABS-classed offshore wind turbine. This is continental Europe’s first large-scale floating wind farm. A belief is that this renewable installation is ushering in the Golden Era of wind, especially offshore wind

Sometimes, a study or report comes to such an obvious conclusion you wonder why the study needed to be done in the first place. Here's an example. A new study shows that the best way to maximize the benefits of renewable energy per dollars invested is to install wind and solar farms where most of the electricity comes from burning coal -- such as India -- rather than a place where clean energy is already the norm -- such as California
