    It's good to see that many of the big tech titans of the world aren't just blowing their money on boats, jets and extravagant material possessions. Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, and a number of other high profile tech founders and execs are teaming up for something called the Breakthrough Energy Coalition.

    The initiative is "a network of private capital" started to help accelerate energy research going forward.

    First the marches and strong stances across the world and now this. Apple is also a major proponent of clean energy. Not to do a shameless plug but: Environment - Apple

    I'm glad to see the other major tech companies jumping in on this growing issue. Of course, the only real people against it are people who don't understand how science works because it goes against one or more of their ideologies.
