This is not entirely new but it is a very concise and compelling overview of the way things are going as climate and RE lunacy rule the western world at present. See the story in the file attached.
One: There is a ‘green’ energy transition
Two: Energy is like other commodities
Three: Energy efficiency will bring nett reductions
Four: Renewables are cheaper than fossil fuels
Five: You can legislate around the laws of thermodynamics
Six: The UK has shown world-leading decarbonisation
Recalling the work of Jevons on the coal question. In 1865, the English economist William Stanley Jevons observed that technological improvements that increased the efficiency of coal-use led to the increased consumption of coal in a wide range of industries. He argued that, contrary to common intuition, technological progress could not be relied upon to reduce fuel consumption.
Jevons broke off his studies of the natural sciences in London in 1854 to work as an assayer in Sydney, where he acquired an interest in political economy. Returning to the UK in 1859, he published General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy in 1862, outlining the marginal utility theory of value, and A Serious Fall in the Value of Gold in 1863. For Jevons, the utility or value to a consumer of an additional unit of a product is inversely related to the number of units of that product he already owns, at least beyond some critical quantity.
