A New Sunflower-Like Solar Panel Tracks the Sun for Maximum Energy. The installations are 16 feet (5 meters) high, open and close based according to the path of the sun, and generate about 5,000 kWh of power annually. The systems produce up to 40 percent more energy than traditional solar panels. @IntEngineering @Je6Whx

Limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels implies 19 million tonnes of additional annual copper production by 2030, a 60% increase. Aluminum supply needs to jump 30%, nickel 50%, and lithium and cobalt 140% and 150% respectively. @gfhay @SafetyMentalst @Reuters
