Something that's actually good

David Roberts (via Grist) nails the self-reinforcing loop between our global dependency on fossil fuels and the international agencies that crunch the numbers in support of them, propping up the industry and therefore the decisionmakers that are beholden to industry:

"The International Energy Agency and U.S. Energy Information Administration do not try to predict policy changes; they project based on the current policy regime. In 2000, there wasn't much in the way of clean-energy policy. Since then, however, there's been a great deal, and those policy changes are the biggest driver of renewable energy growth."
