The most popular stories of the past week on CleanTechnica were led by a visual comparison of the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y, followed by Paul Fosse's early review of one-pedal driving in a Tesla Model 3 (following a recent software update many of us still haven't gotten). My second piece on non-Tesla electric vehicle models that might one day reach 10,000 sales a month was in third, and an answer to the never-ending question of whether Teslas work in snow was right behind it. For the rest of the top 20, and to actually see the headlines and click through to fun articles you missed, scroll down below

Tesla, you may or may not know, has a career program for veterans who have served in the U.S. military. In a country that celebrates its veterans on television yet turns a blind eye to the needs of many vets who are struggling with all types of problems, ranging from PTSD to homelessness, Tesla is one of many American companies that are focusing on employing those who served in our military

Pete Buttigieg's climate action plan is not nearly as strong as Warren's, and the lack of funding puts it close to the level of Biden's at the bottom of the heap. The major saving grace is the price on carbon

The multidimensional aspects of a situation are sometimes quite hard to grasp. Take a situation that involves one's health, one's transit, and commuting habits. How does travel, whether around the neighborhood, to the store, to visit family, or to commute to a job matter? It matters quite a bit in coexistence

I saw a thread on Twitter with a message to the Tesla community that I think needs to be taken to the next level. It's a thread from Bonnie Norman, a Tesla shareholder and Tesla owner. Bonnie is reminding us that our actions matter, too. Every tweet, every action, every interaction we have online — it matters

The LA Times has published an article talking about how Elon Musk kept his promise regarding the Tesla short burn of the century and I just wanted to remind people that it's more than just burning shorts. Of course, we are speaking in metaphors here, and not literally setting people on fire. A "short burn" is practically a technical term in the investment world

We are still not at a mitigation level to avoid 1.5ºC or even 2ºC temperature rise, but of course we hope to get there before runaway climate change destroys us. Part of what we can do is to be prepared for extreme climate events. They can happen to anyone, and there is no way to know who that will be and when

When I saw a post on Facebook by a Tesla owner who is a CEO of a homeless shelter called Echo, it moved me. I've been homeless before -- my mother had issues with what is called chronic homelessness. It was something I experienced all throughout my childhood and the nonprofit I started in 2009 was about helping that community. Although it failed, I learned a lot about myself and know that during the time we were active, we made a difference

I want to share with you a story of a young woman named Cambry, who is an inspiration. Over 6.8 million Americans use assistive devices to help them with mobility. Many of these devices are wheelchairs. In Cambry's case, her wheelchair is not motorized, so she has to use her arms and core to move around, which can be challenging in some cases, like when going to a gas station and pumping gas

Sometime in the 1940s–1950s, a young, passionate socialite activist supplied her alibi to Nero Wolfe: "I dined with the governor to discuss 'killer fog.'"
Nero Wolfe was educated about everything, and he agreed with her on the automobile pollution she referred to as "killer fog."
Wolfe inquired, "Are you referring to the London event?"

My neighbor is an NPR junkie and always has the radio on. Earlier this evening when I was visiting her, I listened in on their podcast. What grabbed my attention were the words "toxic chemical" and "found in 99% of humans' blood."
