What's "Volkswagen" in Hindi? For those who think we can solve the carbon emissions problem in the developed world alone, read 'em and weep.

There are some silly valuations out there right now ($550m for Slide? Gimme a break!), but here's the silliest funded venture I've seen in a while. Take a problem that's wicked for people with decades of experience, where your useful feedback happens in 2-10 years intervals, where many of the deal killer issues are inherently unknowable without executing the plan, and solve it all with AI! Which has been such a great success! (This reminds me of a post I've been meaning to write for a while now...)
