In NZ there's chat that banks are becoming wary of making long term loans to purchasers wanting to buy homes in suburbs vulnerable to sea level rises. If I owned a house in one of these suburbs I'd sell it quickly before the market values take too much of hit.

Well, it must not be profitable and efficient after all -- yet -- or in the near future.

In a recent auction of US offshore areas for wind energy, only 4 of 11 companies bidding bothered to walk away with a little less than 400,000 acres. It is the business of these companies to know, and they're not going to throw away money (like governments do with taxpayer money) to experiment with the funds provided by their stockholders.

If this was a profitable and efficient endeavor, there would have been more than 4 taking the business risk.

MMCC Believers are retreating.

Several news sources are reporting that the world is tiring of all the taxes, the regulations, the unexplainable projects, and the hair-on-fire predictions of doom that never materialize.

Economics is k*ing again.

Even very liberal source Politico is demoralized.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/12/ ... 4-36424229
This month’s fuel-tax riots in Paris and the defeat of a carbon-fee ballot measure in Washington state show the difficulty of getting people to support a levy on the energy sources that heat their homes and power their cars. Meanwhile, even the most liberal Democratic candidates this year gave carbon taxes scant if any mention in their climate platforms, focusing instead on proposals like a phaseout of fossil fuels and massive investments in wind and solar power.
Why have Dems been mum? They can't explain it in specific terms to regular folks, and the Dems don't understand it themselves.

John Constable, in a report from the Global Warming Policy Foundation, shows that efforts at renewable energy have been failing and are now in decline. Efforts in many countries to FORCE a transition from fossil fuels to renewables have mostly resulted in wasted money and the death of flying foul. And it's been mostly taxpayer money, through government grants, that has been wasted.

For almost as long as there has been a climate policy, emissions reduction has been seen as dependent on the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energy sources. Policies supporting this outcome are ubiquitous in the developed and developing world; markets have been coerced globally, with varying degrees of severity it is true, but with extraordinary force in the OECD states, and particularly in the European Union. The net result of several decades of such measures has been negligible.
The UN and the IPCC has been caught manipulating data too many times to even consider them seriously.
