Corporate and Industrial consumers continue to drive forward momentum in the energy transition.

Lost in talk of jobs and profitability from the hyped "energy transition" is whether it will ultimately be effective at preventing climate change.

After 60 years of development and tens of $billions in investment, only one country in the world generates more than 40% of its electricity with wind and solar: Denmark, one of the most affluent and windy countries in the world (the bulk of Denmark's electricity comes from coal and gas plants).

Without any compelling evidence to suggest otherwise, investment in wind and solar amounts to selling out the environment of our descendants for a long, long time.
