Will there be a debate on what color we want the sun? Considering the number of selfies I see with post-apocalyptic sepia filters I vote for IBM Beige #10.

You know what? Let's go green! The plants will love it!

From what I checked, they got more energy then the energy of the final laser beam which hit the core. But the energy of the final laser beam it's 1% or so of the energy fro equipments required to generate the laser beam.

This type of system was only supposed to achieve fusion for research. Now since it's the only nuclear fusion reactor to have ever worked reliability this design is being considered for commercial power application, much to the surprise of its creators.

Let's ask Hipgnosis:

A Word About Temperatures
Climate scientists tend not to report climate results in whole temperatures. Instead, they talk about how the annual temperature departs from an average, or baseline. They call these departures "anomalies." They do this because temperature anomalies are more consistent in an area than absolute temperatures are. For example, the absolute temperature atop the Empire State Building may be different by several degrees than the absolute temperature at New York’s LaGuardia Airport. But the differences from their own averages are likely to be about the same. It means that scientists can get a better idea about temperature with fewer monitoring stations. That’s particularly useful in places where measurement is very difficult (ie, deserts).
The simulation results are aligned to the observations using the 1880-1910 average. What's most important about these temperatures are the trends—the shape and trajectory of the line, and not any single year’s temperature.

Well that is good news, I would actually be worried if the planet were cooling off.

Conspiracy theory :

USA it's working to increase global warming to try avoid or delay the next ice age.

China is installing a bewildering, and potentially troublesome, amount of solar capacity

It added almost 10 gigawatts of photovoltaic generation to its grid in the first three months of this year—allow us to provide a little context about how huge that is.

The news: PV Magazine reports that China installed 9.65 gigawatts of solar capacity in the first quarter of 2018. That’s up from around seven gigawatts in the same period during 2016 and 2017.

In context: Peter Gleick, ... put those numbers into perspective on Twitter. “This is the power equivalent of 10 giant nuclear plants brought on line in three months,” he explained.

Why it matters: Frankly, it’s an astonishing quantity of solar power provision, and it outstrips predictions of what China was expected to add to its grid in the period by as much as two gigawatts. That reaffirms the nation’s commitment to clean energy—though we shouldn't, perhaps, be surprised, given its track record for building out photovoltaics.
The 'potentially troublesome' part has to do with time-shifting storage.

I don't like how they define energy for solar power farms. If the panels have maximum imput in the best day near equator, they put that number like it was capable of give this amount the entire day.
I call it trick.

I don't like how they say a Bugatti can go 200mph.
