Oh, we want the whole value chain evaluated to determine how much in terms of emissions is in one unit of energy. I think thats an outstanding idea. Let’s please include wind, hydro and solar. All the steel, concrete, and polymers that go into such installations. All the glass and the silicon that is needed and of course including the additional transmission infrastructure that reliable energy does not need but that wind and solar do. Wanna go this way let’s do it right. Let’s cut it all open and look at the innards. Not just on hydrocarbons.
Comparing emissions profiles is slated to increasingly become a way for countries to vie for competitive advantage.
