$79–$178 EV Lease … Tesla Cybertruck’s Enormous Implications … Potential $108/kWh Tesla Battery Pack — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 17th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

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.

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
