Marketplace is an excellent source of information about the national and global economy, and why you should care. Well produced and timely, but it does not require an economics degree top understand.

Microsoft’s billion-dollar investment in carbon removal
00:12:15

A lot of tech companies have pledged that their operations are — or will — become carbon neutral. But this week, Microsoft announced plans to become carbon negative in the next 10 years. That means it will invest $1 billion in technologies to remove carbon from the atmosphere in addition to using more renewable energy or offsetting the emissions it creates. In fact, Microsoft announced that by 2050, it wants to remove the equivalent of all the carbon that the company has ever emitted in its 44-years. Ikea is the only other major company that’s made a similar promise, which, let’s be honest, sounds expensive.

How U.S. sanctions led to Instagram censorship in Iran
00:27:31

According to the International Federation of Journalists, more than a dozen Iranian journalists recently reported having their Instagram profiles suspended after they posted about Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani’s death. Facebook, Instagram’s parent company, said any accounts or posts that are being blocked is because the company is being careful not to violate sanctions.

New California homes must have solar panels. Not everyone’s feeling so sunny about that.
00:09:00

California’s home solar mandate, which says that newly constructed homes must have panels on the roofs, is now in effect. In a state known for its sunshine, that seems like a sensible idea, but it’s been a contentious path putting this law into place. Builders say that at $8,000 to $10,000 per house, solar energy will drive up prices, potentially making the housing affordability crisis even worse. Advocates say the expense will be offset by lower bills, and then there are the environmental benefits. But some are already looking for loopholes, including an option in the law to build so-called community solar projects, piping in energy from remote solar installations.
