Google v Global Warming … Greenwash?

Google announced today that it will be investing tens of millions of R&D dollars through its philanthropic arm, Google.org, to develop clean energy technologies that are cheaper than coal. Google co-founder Larry Page thinks that solar thermal and wind energy is the way to go. Google is already working with eSolar, an Idealab company, and Makani Power, a high-altitude wind-energy company.
