Drivers of electric vehicles will be painfully aware that there isn't a universal charging plug.

This means it can be a pain in the arse to find a public charger that will accomodate your particular car. Especially if you don't drive a Tesla.

The decade of the 2010s saw the rise of social media and the proliferation of digital tools that allow people to alter photos and videos. When you put those two forces together, you get a lot of fake images circulating. And these were the ones that helped define the past 10 years.

The UN’s climate summit in Madrid—dubbed COP25 in UN jargon—continued into the weekend as countries remained deadlocked on divisive environmental issues, chief of which is how to handle a part of the Paris Agreement known as Article 6 that’s focused on carbon markets.
