    APPLE CEO REJECTS FOR-PROFIT CLIMATE CHANGE DENIAL

    Tim Cook tells climate change sceptics to ditch Apple shares; Chief executive angered by right wing think tank’s questions about the profitability of renewable energy investments

    Jessica Shankleman, 3 March 2014 (UK Guardian)

    “Apple chief executive Tim Cook has bluntly told climate change sceptic investors to ditch their stocks if they do not support his pledge to slash greenhouse gas emissions, in the latest signal that the company will continue to invest in sustainable energy…Cook became visibly angry when questioned [at Apple’s annual meeting] by a radical right-wing think tank about the profitability of investing in renewable energy…Under Cook’s leadership Apple has stepped up its commitment to curbing its environmental impact, pledging to supply 100% of its power from renewable sources…[S]hareholders voted down a resolution by the National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR) - an avid campaigner against action to tackle climate change - that would force Apple to disclose more information about the costs of its investment in tackling climate change…” click here for more

    Recommend Apple installing a ground source heat pump system first then you only have to install half the number of solar panels. Ground Source Heat Pump systems or Geothermal Heat Pump (GHP) systems use 3-4 parts of free energy from the ground and 1 part electric energy to run the system. Solar panels uses the top of the earth for energy and GHP use the crust of the earth for energy. GHP systems work for 24 years as compared to a conventional system which works for 14 years before it must be replaced. I have a 6,000 sf home that has 2 ton, 3 ton and 4 ton Heat Pumps and it cost on the average of $80 per month for electricity...heating, cooling, and hot water...I know it works. Geothermal heat pump system runs 24/7/365 days a year regardless if the sun shines or wind blows. Hope Crossing in OKC has installed 300 Habit homes with ground source heat pump systems. more information on GHP system can be found at http://www.igshpa.org
