Who am I?

Hi, my name is André Meurer. I am a technologist and product leader. I build software products and I build teams.

Why am I here?

What do I write about?

Climate change, climate solutions, climate tech, and the clean energy transition. And whatever else happens to be on my mind. The views expressed here are my own.

Writing helps me make sense of things. It is how I challenge my own thinking so I can really understand my views about life & the universe. Writing is how I learn.

Is the newsletter free?

Yes, this is a free newsletter. I have no intention to put it behind a paywall.

If you value my work and want to make a contribution, consider instead supporting a local climate nonprofit. Or reach out to me and I can share a list of some who I think do great work.

Does the world really need another newsletter?

Probably not. I write mostly for myself. Everything I post here has been useful to me as I figure out how I can make the best possible contribution to addressing climate change.

Many people have told me they value my insights, so I am trying to bring them to a wider audience.

I believe there are many others out there who would like to help but don’t know where to start. Some don’t even know they want to yet. If I can contribute to bringing more talented people to work on solutions to climate change, then I call that a success.
