    In this article BP SHEL-GB SIE-DE A Siemens logo in Germany. The industrial giant says that a newly commissioned green hydrogen plant in the country will use wind and solar power from the Wunsiedel Energy Park.Daniel Karmann | Picture Alliance | Getty ImagesA green hydrogen generation plant described as one of the largest in Germany is open, with industrial giant Siemens saying it will produce 1,350 tons of hydrogen every year. In a statement Wednesday, Siemens said the facility would use wind and solar power from the Wunsiedel Energy Park in Upper Franconia. The hydrogen will be produced using an 8.75 megawatt electrolyzer. Siemens said the hydrogen would be primarily used "in the region's industrial and commercial enterprises, but also in road transport." Following its commissioning, Siemens said a handover of the plant to WUN H2, its operator, had taken place. Siemens Financial Services has a 45% stake in WUN H2. Riessner Gase and Stadtwerke Wunsiedel, a utility, have stakes of 45% and 10%, respectively. "Talks regarding the expansion of the plant's capacity to 17.5 megawatts are already underway,"...
    Getty Golden State Warriors big man Draymond Green celebrates during Game 5 of the 2022 Western Conference Finals against the Dallas Mavericks. Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green doesn’t seem to have a problem with playing the heel. The boisterous big man is known as one of the league’s biggest trash talkers and has a knack for extending his beefs beyond the basketball court and onto social media. That reputation gave Green a spot on a list of “NBA’s Best Villains of the Past 10 Years,” earning a very fitting ranking.Warriors’ Green as NBA’s Top VillainThe list from Bleacher Report’s Andy Bailey was comprised of some reviled players, including defensive pest and accomplished trash talker Patrick Beverly and title-chasing Kevin Durant. But Bailey pegged Green as the No. 1 villain of the last decade, a reputation that the Warriors star carefully curated over that time. Bailey noted that Green’s villainy is aided by Golden State’s success over the last decade, a stretch in which they steamrolled the league to four titles and left plenty of enemies in their wake....

Mandatory Credit: Mark Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports The Green Bay Packers brought down their rosters to 53 players. Cutting these three players could come back to haunt the team. All 32 NFL teams have cut down their rosters to 53 players by the Aug. 30 deadline. That means they all had to make some difficult decisions, such as waiving players who have performed exceptionally well during the preseason in hopes of getting them on the practice squad. The Green Bay Packers have officially submitted their roster for the 2022 season, which can change in the coming days. However, when looking at the cuts they made, these three stand out as ones that can come back to haunt them.Green Bay Packers: 3 cuts that could come back to haunt Matt LaFleur3.

    Courtesy of Vikings Vikings cornerback Chandon Sullivan fired back at a reporter who questioned his ability. A quiet addition to the Minnesota Vikings defense is former Green Bay Packers slot cornerback Chandon Sullivan. Last season, Sullivan ranked as a top-10 slot corner, posting the fourth-lowest snaps per reception allowed, third-lowest snaps per target and 10-lowest in yards per snap to go along with three interceptions. However, The Athletic’s Arif Hasan hasn’t felt encouraged by Sullivan’s preseason performance so far, leading to a tweet that caught Sullivan’s attention.

    The Biden administration came under fire this week after paving the way for an oil railway that its own projections suggest would increase planet-heating pollution in the United States by almost 1%. President Joe Biden "should be doing everything in his power to respond to the climate emergency, but he's about to light one of the nation's biggest carbon bombs," Deeda Seed, a campaigner with the Center for Biological Diversity, said Wednesday in a statement. "This is pouring another 5 billion gallons of oil on the fire every year and bulldozing a national forest in the process," Seed continued. "It's a horrifying step in the wrong direction." On Tuesday, the U.S. Forest Service rejected challenges to the Uinta Basin Railway, which is expected to quadruple oil extraction in northeast Utah's Uinta Basin by connecting its fracking operations to a transcontinental railroad network that would move hundreds of heated tank cars loaded with waxy crude through the Colorado Rockies en route to Gulf Coast refineries each day. If completed, the railway would provide enough transportation capacity to increase production from roughly...
    Getty Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson warms up prior to a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. As of this writing, the Golden State Warriors have five days to decide who they are at the NBA trade deadline. Do they see themselves as needing a stone-cold big or another difference-maker to solidify their contender status? Or, does GM Bob Myers think they’ve cracked the code as constituted. This much is certain — the Warriors are, at absolute least, a very, VERY good basketball team right now. However, they still have at least one spot they could shore up and a myriad of young, intriguing pieces to help facilitate the filling. Namely, James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody. Opinions differ on how hard the Warriors should be working the phones ahead of the deadline. For his part, Myers has indicated that there’s no urgency to make a big splash. Meanwhile, Klay Thompson just served up his opinion on what the Warriors could use.Klay Identifies the Warriors’ Big Trade Deadline Need Play Klay Thompson getting his mojo back!...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has lashed out at MVP voter Hub Arkush who publicly criticized him and branded him a 'jerk' for missing a game after his 'misleading' claims of being 'immunized' against Covid-19. Rodgers says Chicago-based journalist Arkush - who holds an MVP vote - is  'a bum' who is targeting him because he remains unvaccinated. The 38-year-old signal caller is favored to win a second consecutive MVP award, but Arkush, executive editor of Pro Football Weekly, is not voting for him because the QB is 'punishing his team, his organization and the fans' with his refusal to get injected. In August, Rodgers cryptically claimed he was 'immunized,' leading many fans to assume he had received his COVID-19 vaccinations. However, he neglected to explain that he hadn't received a vaccine and was actually referring to a doctor-prescribed therapeutic treatment. Rodgers's vaccination status was revealed in early November when he tested positive for coronavirus and was subsequently required to quarantine for 10 days — the minimum amount of time an unvaccinated player is asked to quarantine, per league...
    At least one voter for this year's NFL MVP says he won't be backing the frontrunner, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. "I think he’s a bad guy," Hub Arkush, editor and general manager of Chicago Football magazine, said of Rodgers during an appearance on Chicago radio station WSCR-AM. PACKERS MAKE HISTORY AS AARON RODGERS HELPS TEAM TO TOP SEED IN NFC PLAYOFFS Rodgers is expected to win the MVP award for the second year in a row – but Arkush claimed he doesn't deserve it this year because of his dramatic and turbulent offseason. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers warms up before an NFL football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oct. 3, 2021, in Green Bay, Wisconsin. (Asssociated Press) "I don’t think you can be the biggest jerk in the league and punish your team, and your organization and your fan base the way he did and be the most valuable player," Arkush said on the sports radio station. Before the current season began, Rodgers hinted at retiring or joining another team after he openly criticized the...
    Proponents of "green" energy have good reason to be optimistic as they look back on 2021, a year that saw major new project announcements and billions of dollars in support pledged for carbon-free energy. Here are a few of the bigger green project developments of the year: Offshore wind Virginia-based utility Dominion Energy, along with Spanish engineering firm Siemens Gamesa, announced plans in October to construct a first-of-its-kind factory to manufacture blades for offshore wind turbines in Portsmouth, Virginia. Dominion plans to build 180 turbines by 2026 as part of its Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project, which would generate 2.6 gigawatts of electricity — enough to power 660,000 homes. Further north, Vineyard Wind, which is positioned to be the United States's first utility-scale offshore wind installation off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, began work last month on the project. Vineyard Wind had placed an order earlier in the year for 62 General Electric Haliade-X turbines, the most powerful on the market. GE announced that deal for the 13 MW offshore turbines on Oct. 11...
    The 49ers have a lot of issues for a 2-1 team. So many of them came to the surface Sunday in their first loss of the campaign, 30-28 to Green Bay. Despite having a lead with 37 seconds to play, the 49ers didn’t deserve to win Sunday’s game. They made too many mistakes. They had too many injuries. And whatever the 49ers’ defense tried to do in those final seconds was woefully incorrect. But in taking stock of the 49ers’ issues following the Week 3 loss and ahead of the team’s Week 4 matchup with division rival Seattle, the biggest problem isn’t the defense on the whole, or the Niners’ cornerback depth. I never thought this would be the case with a healthy starting quarterback and Kyle Shanahan calling plays, but the 49ers’ biggest issue is their offense. San Francisco should not be struggling like this to move the ball. Related Articles What the 49ers are saying after losing home opener to Green Bay Packers 49ers fans: Levi’s Stadium unveils more...

    Getty Brooklyn's Kevin Durant and Golden State's Draymond Green stand on the court smiling and talking with each other during the first half of an NBA basketball game at Chase Center on February 13, 2021 in San Francisco, California. Kevin Durant‘s return to the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night meant another third of Brooklyn’s Big Three was back in the mix. In a 139-111 win by Brooklyn over the New Orleans Pelicans, it was a reminder of how dangerous these Nets can be when they’re healthy.

    Despite not being involved in the 49ers-Dolphins-Eagles trade chaos, the Green Bay Packers came out the biggest winners.  All we really want in life is a little peace and quite. So with the Niners in a position to draft a top young quarterback and the Patriots now in a position to possibly re-acquire Garoppolo, two of the biggest potential suitors for Rodgers are out of the game. There will still be rumors though, as the Rodgers stuff is fun to talk about. But an already slim reality where he leaves Green Bay just got slimmer and Packers fans can walk away from the Friday trade chaos with a little bit more peace of mind.
    Sara Menker is the founder of a start-up with big goals. As the CEO and founder of Gro Intelligence, her company provides tools to help, “two of the biggest challenges we face as humanity: food security and climate change,” she told TIME. Menker is a former Morgan Stanley commodities trader turned CEO. Gro Intelligence forecasts and provide data on agriculture sectors. Uncovered data found the industry vulnerable to crises including the coronavirus pandemic and climate change. “COVID exposed how fragile our food systems really are,” says Menker in Yahoo! Finance, “How they’re built on very short-term thinking. Most food transactions are still done on a week-to-week, month-to-month, day-to-day basis. So that means that like, something goes wrong, the system breaks.” Source: Fortune Magazine/YouTube Menker points to imbalances in the food system, where supply cannot reach demand. While food prices rose due to demand, hundreds of million people were pushed into poverty by the pandemic. She continues to warn about global food shortages, now exacerbated by climate change,  “The question you ask yourself is, one, is demand growing at the...
    London (CNN Business)The number of Black executives at the very top of the biggest companies on the London Stock Exchange has fallen to zero.There are no Black CEOs, CFOs or chairs in the FTSE 100 (UKX) index for the first time in six years, according to a study published on Wednesday by Green Park, an executive recruitment and diversity consultancy agency.No progress has been made on diversity since Green Park began researching the issue. Only 10 of 297 people in the three top leadership positions do not identify as White, the same proportion as in 2014, the research found."The snowy peaks of British business remain stubbornly white," Trevor Phillips, the chair of Green Park, said in a statement. "We know there is no shortage of qualified candidates to fill these roles if companies are willing to look," he added. UK companies have faced growing pressure to tackle racial injustice in their own ranks in the wake of the killing of George Floyd last June, which sparked Black Lives Matter protests across the United States, Britain and elsewhere.

    Rep. Steve Scalise noted how former Vice President Joe Biden’s promise to end fossil fuel consumption would damage the economic welfare of America’s “middle class” and “lower income” families, offering his remarks on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Biden and the broader Democrat Party regularly frame fossil fuel consumption as driving “global warming” and “climate change,” while implementing and proposing laws to end development of oil and gas resources. The presidential campaigns of Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) described “climate change” as a “global emergency” — making 85 separate references to “climate” — in a 110-page jointly composed political manifesto dubbed the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations.   LISTEN: “He said he’s going to shut down the oil production,” Scalise recalled, highlighting Biden’s call to “transition” away from fossil fuels  during the third and final presidential debate last week. Biden has repeatedly made false statements about his own recorded support for ostensible environmental policies to combat “global warming” and “climate change.” He falsely claimed not to support the Green New Deal despite...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden said he does not support the Green New Deal during Tuesday night’s presidential debate, though his website calls the costly proposal a “crucial framework” for solving climate change. The Democratic presidential nominee said that he has his own plan for taking climate change, placing some distance between himself and the Green New Deal, which was put forward in 2019 by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York. Biden’s website calls Green New Deal critical to understanding how the former vice president intends to approach climate change. “I don’t support the Green New Deal,” Biden responded after Fox News host Chris Wallace asked him about the Green New Deal. “I support the Biden plan I put forward.” (RELATED: Report: Green New Deal Will Impose A $75,000 Per Year Cost On Swing-State Households) The Green New Deal resolution called for “10-year national mobilizations” toward addressing climate change. A fact sheet published alongside the proposal in 2019 said the plan would “mobilize every aspect of American society on a scale not seen since World War 2.” The plan...
    Google just made one of Big Tech’s most ambitious environmental commitments: it will work to run its operations purely on renewable energy by 2030. It also announced that as of today, it has purchased enough carbon offsets to essentially cancel out all the planet-heating carbon dioxide emissions the company has released since it was founded in 1998. Google has been carbon neutral each year since 2007, which means that it offsets the emissions it generates from burning fossil fuels by investing in renewable energy projects or other initiatives that draw carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and into storage. But relying on offsets doesn’t actually wean the company off fossil fuels. Google released 4.9 million metric tons of greenhouse gases in 2018 alone, roughly the amount that more than 1 million passenger vehicles might put out in a year. “We are already feeling those impacts today from historic wildfires” Google’s new pledge comes as California, home to Google’s headquarters, continues to burn and choke on the smoke from blazes made more devastating by climate change. “We have until 2030...
    The 49ers’ roster is teeming with talent, but there’s one position group that could prove to be the team’s Achilles heel as it tries to go back to — and this time win — the Super Bowl. The Niners’ wide receivers are young, dynamic, and could have a great season in 2020. But injuries, inexperience, and an offense that demands as much from that position as any in the NFL could also undercut the unit’s potential. It’s hard to envision a season where Deebo Samuel’s Jones fracture isn’t a persistent issue. He was set to move into the 49ers’ top receiving role, but his injury is a persnickety one, and there was no guarantee he’d be able to make the jump before his foot broke. It’s also hard to see Kendrick Bourne breaking out as a top option in the 49ers’ offense. His play is on an upward trajectory — it could happen — but it’s tough to bank on something that we’ve never seen. How stunted first-round pick Brandon Aiyuk’s development will be without all the offseason practices rookies usually...
    Fans are eagerly awaiting the NBA’s return, which should resume in little over a month. There will be back-to-back action as soon as the season starts. The league recently released the seeding fixtures and the Los Angeles Lakers look well and truly comfortable to hold their spot as the best team in the west. However, there can be certain concerns in the minds of players when it comes to competing in a closed bubble that can last up to two months.  Likewise, Danny Green has put forth his views on the biggest factor that irks him about competing in the Orlando bubble next month. The two-time NBA champion connected with Otis Livingston of CBS2 New York, where he cast his thoughts.  “I think the biggest concern for guys is their families, Green said. And that is the biggest concern about the bubble. Not being able to see their families for two months or having to visit your friends, and being locked in this place without having any interactions with our outside world.” “So we’ll see how long it lasts. Hopefully,...
    Stunning snaps of migrating turtles could show one of the biggest sea turtle swarms ever captured on camera. The images and accompanying video show thousands of green sea turtles flocking to Raine Island off the coast of Australia. The turtles head towards the island each year to lay their eggs. According to Australian Geographic, as many as 64,000 female green turtles are known to make the journey. The academic publication also claims that the images could show one of the biggest swarms ever observed. Some green turtles travel thousands of miles across the ocean to reach the popular egg laying spot. The small sandy island lies on top of a coral reef and only measures 79 acres in total. It’s located approximately 3 north-northwest of Cairns in Queensland, Australia. A drone was used to capture the migration last December. Researchers took the footage so they could try and count the turtles. Research like this helps to keep an eye on the endangered species. Once the turtles get to the shore, they dig a nest into the sand. They then lay...
