Hot and bothered about geothermal energy

"Investors and entrepreneurs are waking up to the potential of geothermal energy, an overlooked and undercapitalized clean energy source.

For FarmWise’s Cofounders, Opportunity Was In The Weeds

"Rented at a per-acre cost, the geo-fenced robots drive along planted rows, capturing images of crops that get uploaded and run through a model trained to classify each image. Weeds get the chop. Vegetables remain. The more time a robot spends at a given farm, the better the AI gets, and so does the weeding. To date, FarmWise’s robots have imaged about 200 million individual crops and partnered with about a dozen of the largest vegetable farms in the U.S."

GM’s Electric Cadillac Lyriq Arrives Spring 2022 With +300-Mile Range, $60,000 Starting Price

"So what exactly do you get for $60,000? In short, a surprisingly sleek looking five-seat crossover with an expected range of more than 300 miles. If that range seems a bit low compared to the 360 miles of a Model X, it should be noted that GM is usually conservative on these estimates and the Bolt can easily outperform its 259-mile rating. Conversely, Tesla’s tend to fall short of their official ratings."
