Apple, Google, and Microsoft Willingly Get In Bed Together
Thirteen of the world’s biggest and most powerful companies have committed $140 billion in low-carbon investments and joined the Obama Administration’s “Act on Climate” initiative.
A lot of the thirteen investors are unlikely bedfellows; they're fierce competitors that on most days agree on one thing - the other one needs to go.
They've come together on the issue of addressing their businesses affect on the climate.
Here are the thirteen that realize the seriousness of a threatened climate.
Apple will build 140 MW of renewable energy;
Bank of America will increase green investment from $50 billion to $125 billion.
Google will continue on its path to 100 percent renewable energy.
Berkshire Hathaway Energy, of Warren Buffett’s investment conglomerate, plans to close 75 percent of its coal-fired power plants in Nevada by 2019.
These top tier companies' announcements legitimize the reality of adverse climate change. That forces the hands of conservative opponents who continue to deny man-made climate change, and skirt the issue by claiming they are “not scientists,” and refuse to take action to combat the warming of the climate.
