What most of us (those likely to read my blogs and posts) have always known, worked towards, or at least been quietly optimistic about. The energy transition, or Energiewende, has been a long hard slog, and there is much, much work to be done. What is now though pretty apparent, from most non Koch Brothers funded research and analysis is that renewables have won, and handsomely. That said the forces pushing back are still strong, some presidents, if not presidential, and many secret and well funded, and some just big old (but influential) energy dinosaurs. We need to keep pushing harder and faster to bring this conclusion to a swift reality.
