Global warming isn't going away just because there's another calamity in the news right now. It's still a giant project that will require massive infrastructure changes. To that end, on Thursday Amazon announced it is making large investments into solar and wind energy as it attempts to go carbon neutral by 2040. The company is investing in a solar project in Australia, the United States and Spain. It's also investing in an onshore wind energy project in Sweden. Amazon is investing in a 60 megawatt (MW) solar project in Australia, a 50 MW solar farm in Spain, a 65 MW solar project in the United States and a 122 MW onshore wind project in Sweden. Amazon’s new HQ2 headquarters will also be partially powered by solar energy. The retail giant announced its plans to go carbon neutral by 2040 last year. Amazon Web Services' (AWS) data centers use a lot of energy, so the company is trying to make sure that doesn't mean it's doing damage to the climate.
