- Consensus energy transition and emission views appearing possible post COP26 are on shaky ground as politicians (especially in Europe) face bigger challenges.

- Europe is the most vulnerable as the economic issues (inflation, energy, etc.) and disagreements could cause further fragmentation of the union and civil unrest.
- Meanwhile, countries and companies push ahead with flagship projects, mainly hydrogen, that look to add to inflation. Will some be top of the cost curve?
- Otherwise, we look at recycling and packagers’ need to change targets, falling CO2 credits, power price inflation, and why we like hydrogen equipment makers.
