Apple premiered their yearly Apple Event introducing the new Apple Series 9 Apple Watch and the iPhone 15 standard, plus and pro models.  During the event, a commercial was premiered featuring Octavia Spencer, Tim Cook (CEO of Apple), Lisa Jackson (VP of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives.  This funny commercial saw Octavia present herself as “Mother Nature,” a stern yet comical corporate responsibility officer.  Before Octavia entered the scene, all the officers and workers at the meeting were shuffling around looking nervous and anxious while drinks shook on the table.   We even saw Tim Cook rehearsing the lines that he would repeat to Mother Nature when she entered.   After Mother Nature arrives, Tim Cook, asks her “how was the weather getting in?” Mother Nature then says, “the weather was however I wanted it to be!”   Mother nature reminds Mr. Cook of his promise in 2020—which is to bring Apple’s carbon footprint to zero by 2030.

Researchers at MIT and spinoff company, Commonwealth Fusion Systems, are working on a groundbreaking method for mimicking the sun’s energy. This method entails the use of fusion energy to generate electricity. The researchers will be constructing a reactor called SPARC, which, if successfully built, will allow for the powering of a plant that will utilize fusion energy. A successful construction of SPARC will also help to curb climate change in the future. The reactor is only in the earliest stages of development and researchers AT MIT plan to complete it in the next three to four years. Commonwealth Fusion Systems CEO, dr. bob mumgaard, connected with NYT and expressed his goal for the creation of the company. “We’re really focused on how you can get to fusion power as quickly as possible.” It is Dr. Mumgaard’s hope that the company can develop a practical fusion device that will be able to mimick the sun’s energy, with the ultimate result of helping to decrease the global warming c
