Energy transition is delicate

The notion of energy transition isn’t binary.

In the absence of economic viability, price still matters. The transition to renewables requires a pragmatic reality especially when if a lower cost producer exists.

“Higher fossil fuel prices will spur a faster shift to renewable sources, all else equal, as they become economically competitive in more uses/geographies. But very high oil/gas prices risk a voter backlash against decarbonization policies, which are vital to a cleaner future.”
