Too Hot To Handle: If Climate Change Is Real, We May Be Screwed

  • In our view, those calling for a quick end to fossil fuel use and simultaneously vilifying the oil and gas industry are likely condemning energy transition to failure.
  • Emission reduction is complex and very expensive, especially on a tight timeline, and some companies and countries are already walking back plans.
  • To fix this, and make progress, the oil and gas industry must be part of the solution vs a target. Al Gore is right on the risks and very wrong on the solutions.
  • We look at all the recent evidence to suggest that things are much more challenging than they first appeared and pathways that are “best efforts” today.
  • Otherwise, we look at some of the horrible margin and oversupply issues in chemicals and polymers, the cost of hydrogen, and why ExxonMobil may be king!

Last week, we discussed 17 Chemicals and Related Products and 136 Companies.
