High Energy Burden | Big Oil Goes Green | Where are the yeses?
Happy Friday folks.
Busy day and week. So I need to keep this short.
I direct your attention to these two articles:
One more interesting article to share, which was a result of yesterday’s MIT CEEPR event that featured former Energy Secretary Moniz.
Amy: What is the state or region that you think will have the most difficult time transitioning to a clean-energy economy? Why?
New England. Moniz then went on to say that that region has in recent years opposed new and existing energy infrastructure, like natural-gas pipelines, hydropower and nuclear power plants that could help reduce emissions.
“There are a lot of nos. Where are the yeses? … If we are going to go to low carbon, where is it all going to come from? It’s not all going to come from offshore wind. That’s why we need pragmatic, realistic solutions.”
That’s the recap for this week. Have a great weekend and as always, stay safe.
