Here are a few slides I sent the guys by way of a pre-amble:
For all the blithe talk about #EnergyTransition, the blunt truth is that civilisation runs on hydrocarbons. Remove the latter and the former falls, too.

Even the food we eat requires them. We have not improved the living standards of all our teeming billions on the quasi-Neolithic methods of farming so beloved of the ignorant #Green metromarxists.

Electrification is not going to save us from the energy crisis that we’ve entered. Several factors point to prolonged tightness in crude oil markets that can only be solved by increasing supply. A 🧵. 1/n
Oil price levels and volatility have increased dramatically in 2022, reaching heights over $140/bbl before settling back to levels in the low $100s. For comparison, 2015-2019 saw prices generally in the $40-60/bbl range. So (captain obvious!) they are much higher now. 2/
Why? First, demand. Relaxed covid restrictions and residual effects of gov't stimmies have unleashed pent up travel activity, along with a return to normal. Global oil consumption is back to pre-COVID levels, and we haven't yet entered the high demand (summer) season. 3/

(1/17) We've been talking a lot about #carbonmarkets — which has felt like a shift for some of our trad #commodities, #metals, #privacy and #tech listeners. We wanted to share how we see #smartermarkets as the thread stringing them together, in this 🧵:
(3/17) Globally, we've had since the 1800s to understand commodity #markets. #CarbonTrading didn't start until 1997 when 180 countries signed the #KyotoProtocol. With it — 4 types of #carboncredits were created: AAU, RMU, ERU and CER.

Down here at the #RhodeIsland State House getting ready to testify for 100% #renewableenergy by 2030 on our grid. #energytransition
Update: I really feel for legislators who have to host all of these committee meetings halfway through the night for what? $13K per year? How do they do it?
Right now @RepDebRuggiero is presenting her compost bill, H7542. This is more important than you may think; organic waste is a significant source of methane (CH4), which is ~100x as potent a GHG as CO2 over the 1st 10 years. /3

Lots of other great big global things going on. All the time. At *the same* time. We get it. But CLIMATE never sleeps & neither does Calgary Climate Hub. The work continues. March is a busy one. Join us. #yyc @350Canada @ArushaCentre @OpenStreetsYYC @Reality_Canada @FFFCalgary Image
We don't advocate turning a blind eye to global tectonics like #Covid, the "Freedom Convoy," the #UkraineInvasion & whatever's next. But this is the #ClimateEra. Expect more mayhem not less. We need to be able to walk, chew gum & save the world at the same time. So let's do it /2
In March the Hub's hitting up some of the most critical pieces of the #ClimateEmergency. We start by joining @350Canada & @FFFCalgary on the March 12 #DayOfAction for a #JustTransition, which is a foundational necessity for Alberta moving forward /3… #yyc

"(...) Europe is now its largest export market for solar products, according to a China Photovoltaic Industry Association (CPIA) report on the outlook for the PV industry over the next few years"…
Due to the energy policy failures in the West especially in the last 10 years, whether in the #EU or in the #USA, the urgently needed #energytransition is currently not possible without Chinese products.
In other words: besides the strategic dependencies on #natural gas, #oil and #uranium, which we feel so much right now, we have created with our eyes wide open the next #dependency also on #solar energy.

The UCP’s Throne Speech has been delivered and Albertans should be worried. It’s a roadmap for privatizing health care and splintering education. On the economy, they want to make Alberta a centre for cryptocurrency and financial deregulation. What a toxic, ideological mess!
Also on the economy: they’re going to double-down on failed “trickledown” policies like tax cuts for corporations and the removal of protections for consumers, workers and the environment (under the guise of “red tape reduction.”) The UCP wants us to win the race to the bottom.
It’s also important to note that the UCP has clearly decided to go all-in on the oil industry’s plan for addressing the #EnergyTransition. That plan depends on governments (federal & provincial) giving industry $50 billion to pay for (so far unproven) carbon capture technologies.

I enjoyed researching & recording this episode of the @EnergyFluxNews interactive podcast, all about the world’s #coal addiction — and what it means for the #EnergyTransition

Check it out:
Some highlights:

“Record coal consumption shows how desperate the world is for energy.”
“Air pollution from Chinese smelters is a Catch-22”

Olaf Scholz is elected new chancellor of #Germany. How can quality of relations between Germany and #Russia change?

Roads lead to... St. Petersburg!
#Scholz: "#Hamburg and #StPetersburg are twin cities and twin ports".

Scholz's "Petersburg connections" and the SPD.
Thread 🧵👇 Image
#SPD in #Hamburg has strong ties with #Russia and, in particular, with #StPetersburg. In 2012, Henning Voscherau became chairman of BoD of South Stream Transport AG, #Gazprom's project to build the South Stream gas pipeline bypassing #Ukraine, which was never implemented. #ONGT Image
Scholz was in contact with politicians and businessmen from Petersburg. He visited city more than once, including in 2016 to participate in German-Russian forum "Petersburg Dialogue". In summer of 2017, when Hamburg hosted #G20 summit, Scholz met with Russian President #Putin. Image

The UCP’s Justice Minister is speaking in the Legislature right now saying the @ABFedLabour spends “tens of millions of dollars in funding for the NDP.” This is going to be convenient when we kick his ass in court. He’s lying to justify silencing workers. #FireTheUCP #AbLeg
The reality is we spend exactly (checks notes) zero dollars on the NDP. Instead, we spent $550k on what had to be reported as “political advertising” in 2017, $616k in 2018 and $650k in 2019. These were NOT campaigns in support of the NDP. Instead, they were ISSUE campaigns.
The 2017 campaign was called “Unstack the Deck”, and was aimed at lobbying the NDP government of the day to bring Alberta’s workplace laws out of the dark ages. How, exactly, is it inappropriate for a workers’ group to advocate for workers’ rights?

Getting the whole world to #netzero #GHGs rapidly is going to be incredibly difficult. But given how strong and organized the #climateopposition is, we must distinguish #thesignalfromthenoise on which pathways are the most likely to succeed. A 🧵 on how I think about this 1/14
2/ First, we cannot rely on social and lifestyle change governed by new paradigms like degrowth to deliver in time for this #climatedecade. But if the movement delivers small reductions in energy or meat consumption, we need it…
3/ #Technologyandpolicy (and politics) need to do the heavy lifting. Can they deliver? Yes, but to effectively channel our efforts and fight off the opposition, we need to distinguish between main courses, side dishes and poison pills (frequently buried in the side dishes)

So Mr Gamal ( the taxi driver from Canada) placed Somalia under Arab Group a majority oil producers that will be negotiating #COP26 on behalf of Somalia who have zero voting power vs. Placing Somalia under Least Developing Countries LDC group to have voting power🤦
What this mean? Well, Gamal ineptness will cost Somalia not to receive much needed #ClimateEmergency funding & #COP26 #EnergyTransition adopted by Arab Group will likely force Somalia to allocate funding received via grants/ FDI to expensive renewable energy vs. cheap hybrid
Not to mention Somalia could likely be required to adopt expensive climate smart adaption technologies sooner than later I.e. say 2030 vs 2080. Meaning certain projects will be so expensive and would limit competition. This will discourage certain countries to bid.

#Carbonequation points to ltd #carbonbudget. There is also a #trustequation linked to past (in)actions. If trust equation is undermined, there'd be little hope 4 integrity of carbon equation. @climateactiontr’s analysis imp but incomplete. Read👇
Here are 6 reasons:
1. Let's start with the future.
Even with the latest pledges, by 2030, #China, the #US & the #EU would consume 45% of available carbon space for 1.5 °C.
2. By 2050, they will consume nearly 90% of the available carbon space.
3. Shall we open the history books now?
In the pre-2020 #climateaction regime, developed countries collectively consumed a whopping 25 GtCO2eq additional carbon space - equivalent to almost 50% of annual global emissions.

‘Tis time to create a fresh thread on #India and #EnergyTransition. (This one draws together my reportage over the last 1.5 years for @carboncopyinfo)
We are living through an epoch when the world is switching from one energy system (fossil fuels) to another (renewables). A period of green creative destruction, as @70sBachchan had said.
Creative destruction creates winners and losers. And so, how is India placed? Can we use the #EnergyTransition to build fresh competitive advantages?

Global oil majors are back in the black—but for how long?

Something is different about this #oilprice spike. Instead of rushing to drill, oil companies are cutting their capex, reducing debt and paying more to shareholders.

What’s going on here? 🧵
Former sources of value have become vehicles for destroying value. Investors—and, we suspect, even company management—understand that more drilling and expensive acquisitions are a bad bet.
High oil prices mean renewable energy, EVs and the variety of industrial moves to decarbonize are incentivized. Even volatility, the short-term problem caused by rising prices, is sufficient to drive calls for more rapid adoption of alternative fuels.…
