How Africa's youth will drive global growth | World Economic Forum

“Africa is a continent teeming with youthful energy and untapped potential, boasting the world’s youngest population with more than 60% of the continent's population under the age of 25. This burgeoning youth population is projected to grow even further, as Africa's population is expected to reach 2.5 billion by 2050, up from 1.4 billion today. Notably, by 2035, there will be more young Africans entering the workforce each year than in the rest of the world combined.”

Neptune's clouds just disappeared — and astronomers think they know why | Inverse

“Neptune receives a tiny fraction of the sunlight that strikes Earth, yet somehow, that’s enough to transform the clouds of this faraway world.


The main driver of cloud formation is generally the seasons, when a planet tilts a different part of its body towards or away from the Sun. Neptune’s seasons last decades, so short-term changes on the timescale of months to the cirrus clouds in the gas giant’s upper atmosphere must have another explanation.”

One year after passage of the IRA, the renaissance has begun | PV Magazine

“In the past twelve months, numerous industry experts have pontificated on just what the IRA will mean for the U.S. economy, the climate, supply chain security and more. The experts at the National Renewable Energy Lab, for example, expect that the IRA will increase clean energy in the range of 71% to 90% of total U.S. generation by 2030.”
