Tesla's 110% stock rally could signal an electric revolution, and this miner expects to cash in

Tesla stock has rocketed about 110% in 2020, hitting a record high of $917 on Wednesday. Hochschild Mining said the electric-car maker's rally bodes well for its rare-earth deposit in Chile. Electric-car batteries rely on rare-earth minerals, so Hochschild stands to benefit if Teslas and other electric cars become mainstream.

Empty Cities and Stalled Industrial Production, New Analysis Shows Coronavirus Has Cut China’s Carbon Emissions by 100 Million Metric Tons

Easter Island – One of the Most Spiritual Places on Earth

This speck of land in the eastern Pacific, known to locals as Rapa Nui, had been on my wish list for years. Since childhood I had read about the Moai, enormous statues the indigenous people carved from volcanic tuff and raised on platforms near the shoreline. Explorers and visitors alike have always been intrigued by the mystery of Easter Island. Where did the first inhabitants come from? When di...

The tour guide promised the trail to Salto Grande Waterfall in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park was easy. “Just a 20 minute walk,” he said. As a casual aside, he advised us to take our jackets, as it “might be a little windy up there.” The first 15 minutes were a breeze. A graveled path led through a field of flower-strewn tall grass, with the famous horns of the Cordillera Paine Massif peeking over the top.
