Hey fellow world-savers and welcome back to one5c. Before we get into it this week, let me introduce the newest member of the one5c team: Associate Editor Sara Kiley Watson, one of the sharpest and most knowledgeable environmental reporters around. You’ll be hearing from her a lot about sustainable living and greenwashing, but she also knows plenty about energy—and this week she’s breaking down the hype around “clean hydrogen” to help parse if it’s really the game changer some folks would have you believe it is.
After all, this week’s roundup shows us how hype can spin out of control when reality outpaces promises (ahem, carbon credits), or when companies go too long without being forced to answer hard environmental questions. Don’t worry, there’s good news, too.
As always, if you’re enjoying one5c, please forward us to someone who wants to save the world. —Corinne
