3. Renewables Threaten to Undercut Gas

According to a pair of recently released Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) reports, if all proposed gas plants are built, 70% of those investments will be rendered uneconomic by 2035, as reported in Utility Dive. Thanks to NY-GEO member John Rhyner for the tip.

Also see these RMI reports forwarded by John Joshi: A Bridge Backward? The Risky Economics of New Natural Gas Infrastructure and Economics of Clean Energy Portfolios.

4. Greta Thunberg Responds to Cost of Climate Action Critics

During The Intercept event titled "The Right to a Future" with Naomi Klein, 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg had a message for those people who claim it is “too expensive” to boldly confront the climate crisis with sweeping policies like a Green New Deal: "If we can save the banks, we can save the world."

Thanks to Green Energy Times (2019 09 13) for alerting us to this article about it in Ecowatch.
