"At Apple, we're carbon neutral for our own operations and innovating every day to go even further in the urgent work to address climate change," said Apple CEO Tim Cook.

All very good, but if they made more of their products upgradeable and repairable they could cut off a LOT of e-waste.

Does anyone really care about this? Whenever I go to the nursery, they are pumping CO2 into the greenhouses like there's no tomorrow. It's what plants like.
In case you forgot your high school biology course, plants like CO2, but humans breathe out CO2 because it is toxic to our cells. It’s literally a waste product. So of course the CO2 should be pumped to organisms that can use it. They remove the CO2 from the atmosphere and produce food as a result, so it’s a win-win. This is done so we have a tomorrow.

I assume you’re playing the fool to cast doubt on the science of climate change. How about a little experiment. Fill up that greenhouse completely with CO2 from an emissions source of your choice and see what happens to the temperature and to the plants inside.

Good for them, but we need an independent third party to verify these claims. It’s very easy for corporations to buy up carbon offsets that don’t actually do anything (often they are credits for green projects that were already going to be built anyways, regardless of the credits) and claim they’ve gone carbon neutral.

But won't embrace the right to repair movement because it would hurt their bottom line.
