Global warming is a major problem to Earth

Warren Buffett called global warming a “major problem” and has invested Berkshire's money in renewable energy industry, spending billions to develop solar and wind power. 

But renewable energy proponents claim the utility arm of Berkshire Hathaway has been trying to undermine an almost 40-year-old law intended in part to promote the growth of cleaner energy. Berkshire, they say, is effectively stifling solar projects to protect utilities it owns, such as PacifiCorp, based in Portland, Ore.
