SolarCity at the Frontier of Climate Change

Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing humanity today. Equipped with innovative photovoltaic technologies and a revolutionary financing business model, SolarCity aims to expand globally and dramatically decrease emissions greenhouse gases from fossil fuels. But is this goal too big to accomplish? Is a merger with Tesla the only way out?

Why does Syngenta promote synthetic products that increase air pollution?

Population growth, climate changes and limited natural resources have challenged agricultural production to grow and become more efficient.

These chemicals incur in high emissions of nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas 300 times stronger than carbon dioxide [1]. Would the $54 billion [2] crop protection market opportunity be misleading Syngenta’s priorities?
