After Covid-19. The Renewable Energy virus

We are infected with the RE virus already but the symptoms up to date have been relatively mild unless you regard doubling power prices as a serious matter, and blackouts in out of the way  places like South Australia and a few districts in Victoria.

But the prognosis is not good, considering that all the states and the ALP are determined to increase the dose. I will not dwell on this today but we had better spend some time looking ahead because the last thing we need to recover from the economic wreckage is a pandemic of over-priced and unreliable electric power.

    I’m predicting a bear market in all things climate change and RE related.

    COVID-19 is a perfect opportunity to declare force majeure on the Paris agreement.

    Good thinking, Ninety-Nine!

    The Green New Deal con will be given huge impetus by this crisis, even though the capacity of the economy to provide the necessary ongoing subsidies is likely to be much depleted.

    The smartest approach for a government wanting to navigate this mine field may be to cherry pick the least worst options from the Green New Deal menu – which would essentially be a revved-up version of what is already happening.
