The “Climate Funding Gap”… Gap? More like an “unscalable cliff”!

Guest “Now that’s funny right there,” by David Middleton

From LinkedIn:

I don’t think “gap” is the right word for this:

I don’t know which is funnier: The “climate funding gap” graph or the fact that anyone could take this seriously. The BNEF article is actually hilarious.

Here are some of the “highlights”:

  1. “Demand for Future Metals is Expected to Outstrip Supply”… No schist Sherlock? In many cases, the demand will outstrip global proved reserves, if not known resources. See: Mining for net zero: The impossible task.
  2. “Hydrogen Supply Will Outstrip Demand”… Which means that hydrogen production will quickly become uneconomic and supply will barely be able to keep up with demand.
  3. “Climate Funding Gap Remains Huge”… That’s like referring to the Grand Canyon as a “gap” in the Colorado Plateau.

Climate funding is currently somewhere down on the canyon floor…

BNEF and everyone who didn’t laugh at the “climate funding gap” graph have earned Larry the Cable Guy Lifetime Achievement Awards.
