Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Congratulations Jerome!

I saw this from WSJ and came right to ET to clap (just joking):

Crude-oil prices surged more than $3 a barrel and appeared to touch $100 in New York Mercantile Exchange trading for the first time, driven by weakness in the dollar and concerns about tight supplies. A Nymex spokeswoman said one $100 floor trade was legitimate, though that has not yet been confirmed. Stocks, already lower, fell even more, with the Dow recently down about 200 points.

IMHO, the countdown diaries have made their statement. CO2 ppm levels may be appropriate for another type of countdown diary to doomsday or we could try something positive -- a goal to strive for (% of installed renewable capacity) but maybe the rate of change is not that fast there.

Staying with the oil theme, the $200 mark is probably appropriate although it will take some time to get there as increases in oil production (however temporary) and the economic slowdown will probably bring prices down in the next couple of years.

Orthodoxy is not a religion.

Maybe.

But it's not just about the price of oil: it's also about the price of the dollar....

For which reason, we should have a countdown to €100 oil.

Countdown to 10% renewables globally works for me.  sections on defining what is and isn't sustainable or true renewables, sections on the countries which are already above 20%, breakdown into the various technologies.  But maybe that's too far out.
