GAO found that Trump admin illegally withheld funding from ARPA-E. Just one little raindrop of corruption in the storm.

Power lines transporting dozens of gigawatts over many thousands of km are becoming feasable, this prof reports. Let me explain why this is highly relevant when you are interested in solar, wind, hydrogen or baseload (thread)

National Parks are only supposed to be for corporations and rich people according to this admin. The Apple has fallen from Teddy

Price of solar PV modules has fallen more than 100-fold since 1976. Learning rate approx. 22%: prices fallen 22% every doubling in capacity.

In this respect, it's best to use our study to parameterize different factors to test with better/more comprehensive data and analysis. Exs quantify domestic impacts, looking at region specific additionality, and refining LCA profiles

Great question. It would improve the accuracy of the individual end uses, slightly widen the high level bounds/brackets. Point LCA estimates like we use here are not ideal: it's really a non normal distribution curve. We used point estimates due to a lack of data in importers

I think a border tax adjustment would apply when trying to level a consumption based tax leveled at the point of production (or otherwise upstream of the export). Point of a production based tax would be to raise revenue on fossil exports. Still need some wto-compliant adjustment

Only in narrow scenarios with low methane leakage, limited domestic impacts, and no induced demand growth can it deliver modest emissions reductions globally

We didn't specifically look at transport uses as that is a small portion of current importer NG use. In general, fossil LPG and transit oil normalized to our study's bcf/d metric has LCA similar to Japanese oil for electricity. Needs further study as do fertilizer issues

Here's your breakdown of how clean energy fared in the conference agreement. EVs, wind, solar, geothermal and CCS came out relatively unscathed. Nukes, fuel cells and CHP didn't do so well. w/

ACORE says they still have concerns about how the tweaked BEAT provision in the GOP tax bill could affect wind/solar investment:

Does leaking sensitive information with the intent of undermining an active obstruction of Justice investigation count as obstruction of Justice?
