Wind and Solar energy helps to reduce unemployment rate! How? Here very interesting comparison: fossil fuels versus wind and solar: https://theobjectivestandard.com/2021/02/per-worker-productivity-compared-fossil-fuels-versus-wind-and-solar/ Let me quote: > This means that producing a terawatt of electricity from wind and solar requires roughly 741 workers. Using fossil fuels, producing that terawatt requires only 77 workers. So, it takes almost ten wind and solar workers to produce the same amount of electricity as one fossil fuel worker. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♂️

> We study the economic and psychological effects of a USD 1076 PPP unconditional cash transfer, a five-week psychotherapy program, and the combination of both interventions among 5,756 individuals in rural Kenya. One year after the interventions, cash transfer recipients had higher consumption, asset holdings, and revenue, as well as higher levels of psychological well-being than control households. In contrast, the psychotherapy program had no measurable effects on either psychological or economic outcomes, both for individuals with poor mental health at baseline and others. The effects of the combined treatment are similar to those of the cash transfer alone.

I guess this is the the first honest trail to WHO impact ;)
