Gem of the day

Jeremy Leggett, CEO of renewables firm Solarcentury, reacts to today's report from the IEA predicting that oil will make the US the world's largest energy producer by 2020 (via Businessweek):

“It’s a comfortable narrative, and people are desperate to believe comfortable narratives."

And now for the uncomfortable narrative: as part of the report's launch, IEA head Fatih Birol called energy efficiency policy to date an "epic failure".

If Paul Ryan did the math, this scenario would probably add up.
