Good data saves lives. We know that this is true from the times when we are relying on bad data, as England did after the Excel spreadsheet error at the beginning of October.

This was the first project and I set up together. 7 years later (mostly in the field) we have results.

IEA data and forecasts remain largely unusable and unused because the agency charges super-high user fees rather than making it available for free. Like Max, I use EIA, BP, JODI and other sources for data and forecasts because I don't have the budget to pay for IEA data.

Hi Cuneyt, as Hannah mentioned, the problem with the IEA data is not the price, but the copyright. Yes, Oxford can afford it, but it can not be used to communicate publicly. I wrote this longer thread to explain the problem

At we aim to make the metrics we need to understand global energy available for everyone We have Primary energy & Electricity We're missing final energy. Is there an open global database on this? All I find links back to which we cannot use due to copyright

As so many other things I’ve learned that from . She pointed out to me how very wrong it is to think 1.5C and 2C as if they are broadly the same. They are really not…

It doesn’t matter how we get there – this is showing net emissions if you will. I’d be surprised if the future was NET free.

Working on this visualization for a future post. It shows us how global CO₂ emissions have to decline if we want to reach the Paris Agreement and stay below 2ºC of warming.

The does great work. But for the to *achieve their mission* they need to *license* their data so that the public conversation can center around it. Currently we are all paying our taxes to provide this data for rich elites that discuss it behind closed doors.

A very useful project by Marc Bevand ( here). He brings together the age-specific infection fatality rates (IFR) for COVID-19 from several published studies. The IFR tells you how likely it is that a person who is infected with COVID will die.

Many lives are lost due to indoor air pollution. The 1.6 million victims are almost exclusively people in poor countries who lack access to modern energy sources. → Our entry on indoor air pollution:

Yes, that would be just as important as more funding. Probably even more.

And not just that: hopefully more talented people will pick research instead of heading into finance, choosing to work for the Common Good and not simply for their bank account.

One good thing that I could see as a result of 2020 is that there will be more funding for research and development in the future. The application for future funding is the work that scientists did in 2020.
