“Energy awareness” is code for the economy runs on fossil fuels and Green Energy is nowhere close to being able to replace it. From Dan Doyle at oilprice.com:
- ollowing years of ‘Green Enlightenment, decision-makers are waking up to the fact that blindly following an ESG agenda has led to sky-high energy prices.
- Europe must not overlook domestic gas resources in its scramble to find new energy sources.
- The renewable energy rollout needs much more time than it is being given.
An age of awareness looks to be upon us. Personal pronouns, the green movement, the swamp, ESG, DEI, CRT, LGBTQ, regressive therapy, equity, defund the PoPo, and now, perplexingly, oil and gas. Let’s call it a New Energy Awareness or just Energy Awareness (“EA” if you go in for initialisms). Consider it a natural progression, a fallout from the previous Age of Enlightened and Entitled Complaint (“EEC”)—a swinging of the pendulum from the farcical to factual. It’s like the new peak oil. But more cultural, less depletion.
How could this be, that oil and gas should suddenly be gaining favor? It seems so unreal, so unexpected, as much so as an honest review of Jared Kushner’s new book.
But there it is, oil and gas are trending positively in the hearts and minds of German politicians. Natural gas is being met with whispered acceptance by green-minded bureaucrats. These are the same government types who spent the last decade shutting down coal-fired utilities and planting the green flag through the hearts of their nuclear plants. There has become a reordering of priorities, possibly even an admission that the green energy revolution has gone too far, too fast, and that blind acceptance has outrun capacity. What should have been a thoughtful rollout instead transcended probity to become religious fervor.
