Energy, Climate Policy, and Inflation

Sooner or later, I will have to write something more detailed about the supply-chain mess, but for now, please note what NR’s Dominic Pino has been writing on the subject (see below). I’ll just note one early concern about the pandemic’s prolonged lockdowns. The worry, which I shared, was that those in charge overestimated the ease with which economies could be switched off, and then back on. That was never likely to be an easy task, and — this shouldn’t have been hard to work out — the longer the period of disruption, the more difficult it becomes to put everything back together again. An economy operates through an immensely complicated web of connections. Tear a hole in that web, and then leave it there for a while, and it becomes exceedingly difficult to fix. Knowing that helps understand what we are seeing now.

Why Is The World Still Ignoring Geothermal Energy?

As the world begins to accept the urgency of mitigating and adapting to climate change, many nations around the globe are starting to work toward a clean energy transition in more tangible and ambitious ways than ever before. The transition can’t come fast enough. This August the UN issued a “code red for humanity” accompanying a report that showed that not only have humans already irreversibly altered the climate, but the window for avoiding even more damage and the worst effects of climate change is also rapidly closing. So we know what the goal is -- decarbonization -- but what exactly will it take to get there?
