These stories are missing the motivation... It's presumed to be "good stewardship of our planet", but I'll bet it's "government subsidies". There's no practical motivation to hamstring your operation and raise your operating costs while your competitors don't. There must be a hidden motive. Government subsidies are the most likely reason.

Spend a billion dollars to make no measurable impact on the environment? What is the motivation? Science has shown us that human influence is so low that removing all human influence would have a .01°c change over a 100 yr period. This move would represent a change of less than .000001°c over the next 100 yrs. How is that news worthy? As a matter of fact how is any of the climate change conspiracy theories news worthy? Alarmists have been around my whole life, but this time around they seem even more extreme.
