I get your reasoning, Aston, that we’ll do what’s cost-effective and that’s likely to be using fossil fuels, from coal to gas, to generate our electricity. Meanwhile, there’s an exponential growth rate for solar, wind and batteries. The costs and technologies are already competitive or better in many regions, and the costs keep falling and the technologies keep improving. It will only get better and cheaper. And more widespread and rapid than we’re realizing so-far. Large companies are already supplying all their own electricity cleanly and economically. The towns and states in this article are moving forward economically and ethically. I’m proud of them. They’re the forerunners of an energy transformation that will be healthy and profitable for all of us while rescuing us from the dire consequences of old fossil fuel habits.
