It’s an energy crisis. No, not the blackouts from South Australia when the wind stopped blowing. Or the demands for mothballed power to take up the shortfall in the UK, costing up to 5 times regular power generation.

A few things that caught my eye this past week.
The Limits of the ‘Tobacco Strategy’ on Climate Change [link] …
Charles Moore: The Obsession With Global Warming Will Put The Lights Out All over Britain [link]
China is building nuclear reactors quickly and cheaply—about 5 years per reactor and $2000 to $2500 per kilowatt [link]
Overview of Republican candidates perspectives on climate change [link]
China burns much more #coal than reported, complicating climate talks [link]
500 new coal plants under construction in Asia because… coal’s cheap. [link]

Not a crisis, but a catastrophe!
