Rethinking the energy transition: The price lie
The demand for “more money for climate protection” is based on the price lie. But we need more motivation, credit and opportunity for a real effective energy transition.
The demand for "more money for climate protection" is based on the price lie. But we need more motivation, credit and opportunity for a real effective energy transition.
We have had several major technological revolutions in the last 2 centuries, each of which has improved our standard of living. The railroad, from the telegraph to the Internet, the power grid, the computer, from the mobile phone to the smartphone. But now, all of a sudden, people want to talk us into the necessary energy revolution with "It will be very expensive, we need more money for climate protection."
Then still come "saving restricting renouncing" sermons of the sinking standard of living. With the price lie, effective climate protection has been held up for decades.
