17 Celebrities That Love Elon Musk's Tesla

Tesla has become incredibly popular in recent years. The electric car company's revolutionary powerwall battery allows you to charge your car with energy generated from residential solar panels. It has already sold out through 2016. And Elon Musk is hoping his Model S will be the first mass-produced all-electric car. He's building a Tesla Gigafactory outside of Reno, Nevada that he is hoping will put production at 500,000 cars per year.

Musk is also working on "conquering range anxiety" with Tesla models averaging between 200 and 270 mpg. Tesla is rapidly expanding its network of supercharging stations across the country. The company even partnered with Airbnb to install charging stations at host homes, first in California and eventually around the country.

So it really comes as no surprise that celebrities can't get enough of Musk's Tesla. Two nights ago, Stephen Colbert mentioned to Musk on his new Late Show that he personally owns a Tesla. Turns out, so do a lot of other celebrities.

There's at least one celebrity who isn't in love with Tesla though. George Clooney had a Roadster but was reportedly unhappy with it and auctioned it off a few years ago. Maybe he will opt for a Model S now.

Food's Environmental Impact Varies Greatly Between Producers

By Jason Daley

There's no way around it—everything in the grocery store, from nuts and kale to beef and apples, has an environmental impact. Fertilizer causes water pollution, farm fields can encroach on habitat, and a lot of carbon gets released when food is transported from one place to another. But it turns out not every stalk of broccoli or pound of Gouda has the same ecological footprint. A new study of food systems in the journal Science shows the same items sitting next to each other on the shelf can have radically different impacts.

Trump Penalizes Migrants Fleeing Climate Crisis He Ignores

The impacts of climate change do not respect international borders. If they did, it wouldn't be the case that the countries who have done the least to contribute to global carbon dioxide emissions are expected to suffer disproportionately from their effects.

But as climate refugees begin to flee deteriorating conditions, they are already finding that borders very much apply to them.

#MetsUnite to Spread Climate Change Awareness as Heat Wave Season Begins

If you tune in to a TV weather report on today's Northern hemisphere summer solstice, you might notice the meteorologist wearing a unique striped tie or necklace that begins in blue and changes to red.

This isn't just a fun summer style. The design is actually University of Reading climate scientist Ed Hawkin's "Warming Stripes" visualization, which represents the change in annual global temperatures from 1850 to 2017. Nearly 100 TV meteorologists are displaying it in some way on Thursday as part of Meteorologists United on Climate Change or #MetsUnite, Weather Underground reported.
