Episode 54

"COP26," the 26th year pretty much all the countries in the world convened in an annual conference to talk about what to do about the climate catastrophe, will result - just like its preceding 25 editions - in talk, then in some more talk. That's because real climate action doesn't happen at these annual climate meetings: It takes place instead elsewhere, at individual country level, when local action results in stopping deforestation; in accelerating renewable energy deployment and electrifying everything; and in stopping any new oil, gas or coal projects.

About Me

There is so much to be angry about, if you are a clean energy guy.

Every day, so many things that happen around the world make me angry when I look at them with lenses colored by the climate change chaos unfolding everywhere around us. And I am especially angry because I know we can solve the climate change crisis if we were only trying.


Each week, I will share with you a few topics that struck me and that I was very angry about – and this will generally have to do with climate change, solar or wind power, plastic pollution, environmental degradation, wildlife, the oceans and other related topics.
