The tech giants are all going long on renewables, but Amazon seems to be going long on oil and gas.

A new story from Gizmodo details Amazon’s budding romance with the fossil fuel industry, even as it also lags behind its peers in buying clean energy for its operations.

Then, a new study shows that three-quarters of all coal in the U.S. is more expensive than new renewables. But there’s an ongoing push from coal groups to force plants to stay open. We’ll have the latest in the feeble attempt to save coal.
