The “Resource Curse” and Renewable Energy

The “resource curse” in this article below goes away in a #renewableenergy dominated world.

Its striking that the communities globally that supply #coal, #oil, #gas and other #fossilfuels are some of the poorest and most polluted on earth. These are sad social and environmental justice stories in this article and are hard to read. All consumers of the downstream products are part of this story and can make a different choice.

Renewable energy is a main component of the electrified world in the #lowcarbonenergy economy. With its modularity and lack of a fuel supply chain, its easily and quickly deployable in all 195 countries on earth without “resource curse” communities. Speed to a clean energy market with social and environmental justice included is hard to beat.

But it takes is good governance at all levels to make it a reality.
