Another name deserving plaudits? René Gabrielli, who just designed a concept catamaran that runs completely on wind and solar — no gas required. The vessel uses a lithium-powered battery that’s charged via an array of solar panels on the ship’s bow.

There’s a moveable cabin, expansive decks and bars, and even a pool.

Because it’s important to take a dip and cool down on a warming planet.
