Transparent Solar Panels Will Turn Windows Into Green Energy Collectors
Nice stuff, but it would probably be more practical to clean ventilation ducts, fix air conditioning, clean windows, switch off some lights and computers, ... in the "energy vampires" most commercial  buildings are.

Apropos the thread title (which has changed lately, I believe), Why the Guardian is changing the language it uses about the environment: "From now, house style guide recommends terms such as ‘climate crisis’ and ‘global heating’"

Political institutions have been losing their credibility for quite some time. We are heading to oblivion, but I think the way leads though anarchy. At lest according The Atlantic's Robert Kaplan's article from 1994, which describes the effect of climate change on social order---at first considered controversial, but the future proved him right. The anarchy may change the course of things and save us.
Anyway, I guess it's a perfect time to not to worry and be happy.

"Don't worry, it will soon pass, whatever it is!" :-)

PS, Kaplan's old article
