Charles, whom I met in a double interview in Berlin a couple of years ago, wrote a book I always recommend to everyone: The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible.  I just  wrote him again my gratitude that his amazing clarity  and depth of thinking is and will be available for the world after I have to check out.  He is saying and going deeper into all that I have been trying to say for the past 40 years.  You can get a taste in this article about technologies of re-union and take the opportunity to sign on for his newsletter.

Stunning drops in the cost of wind and solar energy have turned the global power market upside down.
For years, opponents of renewable power, like President Donald Trump, have argued they simply aren’t affordable. The reality is quite different.
Unsubsidized renewables have become the cheapest source of new power — by far — in more and more countries, according to a new report from the United Nations and Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF).
In just one year, the cost of solar generation worldwide dropped on average 17 percent, the report found. The average costs for onshore wind dropped 18 percent last year, while those for offshore wind fell a whopping 28 percent.
The result is “more bang for the buck,” as the U.N. and BNEF put it. Last year saw 138.5 gigawatts of new renewable capacity. That not only beat the 2015 record of 127.5 GW, but it was built with a total investment that was 23 percent lower than in 2015.
