The Real Reason They Hate Nuclear Is Because It Means We Don't Need Renewables
It is only nuclear energy, not solar and wind, that has radically and rapidly decarbonized energy supplies while increasing wages and growing societal wealth.

If Property Rights Were Real, Climate-Destroying Companies Would Be Sued Out Of Existence – Current Affairs | Culture & Politics
But if those who claim to respect property rights actually took property rights seriously, carbon taxes shouldn’t even be a policy “choice.” Charging companies that emit climate-destroying gases for that destruction is not optional. Not to do it would be to admit that we do not actually care about property rights, we just care about protecting the property of particular favored parties. (Namely corporations.) You shouldn’t even need to pass a tax, because greenhouse gas emitters should be sued out of existence.

Ocean Cleanup 001 to return to port for repair and upgrade (2018-12-31)
Ocean Cleanup må til havn for reparasjon etter at et endestykke løsnet i slutten av desember etter under tre måneder til havs. Med seg tilbake til land drar de også med seg omkring 2 tonn med gamle fiskegarn og plastikk. Lenser er ment å skulle samle rundt 1 tonn plastikk per uke under normal drift. Regner med de trenger et par måneder mer problemsøking og utbedringer.

Yes, eating meat affects the environment, but cows are not killing the climate
Raising livestock has clear impacts on the environment, but contrary to what many critics say, it is not the biggest driver of climate change.

Solar Impulse Foundation - Bridging the gap between ecology and economy
"One of the first to envision ecology through the lens of profitability, Bertrand Piccard has always advocated that protection of the environment would become a reality only if it was perceived as economically viable and requiring no financial or behavioural sacrifices. He actively speaks out against the absurdity of old and polluting devices and systems, and promotes the benefits of new existing efficient technologies and solutions to motivate governments and industries to take action. A way to prove that solving climate change – rather than an expensive problem – is a fantastic market opportunity."

One of the main programs of the Solar Impulse Foundation is their Label:

"For the first time a label proves the economic profitability of solutions that protect the environment
selecting 1,000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way and awarding them the Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions Label.

This label serves as a new and credible symbol that can be applied to products, processes and services and serves as a guarantee of quality to those looking to implement clean solutions, and affords a competitive edge to the innovators behind them.

Assessed by independent experts for their technological feasibility, environmental and socio-economic benefits, and economic profitability, a portfolio of these solutions will be brought to decision-makers to encourage them to adopt much more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies."
