Glenn Youngkin has moved to withdraw the state from a regional carbon-limiting initiative meant to combat climate change. A spokesperson for Youngkin had no immediate comment on the new offshore wind group.In working with states and the private sector, the White House said it will "provide Americans with cleaner and cheaper energy, create good-paying jobs and invest billions in new American energy supply chains,'' including construction of wind turbines, shipbuilding and servicing.Biden has set a goal of deploying 30 gigawatts of offshore wind power by 2030, enough to provide electricity to 10 million homes, support 77,000 jobs and spur $12 billion per year in private investment in offshore wind.

Could robots take your job? How automation is changing the future of work
automated future sits inconspicuously off Baldwin Street in Toronto’s busy Kensington Market.The RC Coffee Robo Cafe, which juts out slightly from the brick wall by the sidewalk, bills itself as Canada’s first robotic café.As opposed to a vending-machine brew that dispenses coffee from hand-filled urns, the robotic barista makes each cup of coffee, espresso, latte and more by request, ready in just a few moments.For Jasmine Arnold, visiting Toronto from Providence, R.I., the iced matcha prepared at RC Coffee topped drinks dispensed by a vending machine and was on par with coffee served at a chain.While the drink went down smooth, she told Global News the experience was unique if a little jarring.“I have mixed feelings about a robot, from a jobs perspective,” she said, expressing some discomfort about what this means for the prospects of human baristas. Canada shed jobs for 2nd straight month in July, unemployment rate unchanged After trying his own robo-poured beverage, Arnold’s partner Eric echoed her sentiments but noted that with the pandemic changing our expectations of what work can be done from where, it seemed to align with recent shifts in work.“I think this is kind of where we’re going as a society,” he said.Workforce shifts driven by a tight labour market and the COVID-19 pandemic are opening the door to a faster adoption of automated solutions, but at least one expert is warning that Canada might not be prepared for how quickly robotic workers are set to transform the economy.Statistics Canada said Friday that though Canada shed some 31,000 jobs in July, the country’s unemployment rate remained at its lowest ever at 4.9 per cent last month.

Elon Musk's big plans for Twitter: What we know so far
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Tesla CEO Elon Musk has laid out some bold, if still vague, plans for transforming Twitter into a place of "maximum fun" once he buys the social media platform for $44 billion and takes it private.But enacting what at the moment are little more than a mix of vague principles and technical details could be considerably more complicated than he suggests.Here's what might happen if Musk follows through on his ideas about free speech, fighting spam and opening up the "black box" of artificial intelligence tools that amplify social media trends.Musk's feistiest priority -- but also the one with the vaguest roadmap -- is to make Twitter a "politically neutral" digital town square for the world's discourse that allows as much free speech as each country's laws allow. He's acknowledged that his plans to reshape Twitter could anger the political left and mostly please the right. He hasn't specified exactly what he'll do about former President Donald Trump's permanently banned account or other right-wing leaders whose tweets have run afoul of the company's restrictions against hate speech, violent threats or harmful misinformation. A rancher is offering 100 acres of free land to Elon Musk if he moves the Twitter headquarters from California to Schwertner, Texas.DOWNLOAD: FOX 7 AUSTIN NEWS APPShould Musk go this direction, it could mean bringing back not only Trump, but "many, many others that were removed as a result of QAnon conspiracies, targeted harassment of journalists and activists, and of course all of the accounts that were removed after Jan.
