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

This bar chart is telling us that NRG consumption everywhere but China (58% of "Asia" region) has been flat since 1990. But N.A. and European "Desertec" fanboiz are telling us they have NRG "deficiencies" and have a compelling need to rationalize "spare contingency capacity in various national markets" by redistributing "power from energy rich to energy deficient regions markets" with undersea cables.

GTFO! Is there anyone out there capable of controlling how creepy their homicidal mania is?

I'm thinking, No! On one hand, I'm consulting the playbook that inspired "deficient" nations on how best to  "financialize" CO2 credit "growths".

US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, (global) industry activities

On the other, cookbook monopolistic strategies Paul Geroski: Essays in competition policy. "IDENTIFYING ANTI-TRUST MARKETS" provides sufficient information to reveal the true purpose of compulsory "global grid" operations.

Oregon Democrats advance sweeping climate policy

a cap-and-trade program, a market-based approach to lowering the greenhouse gas emissions behind global warming
because credit trading has worked so well sequestering GHG freedom molecules!
Oregon's program would begin in 2021, and the state wants to reduce emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.
500ppm! PLUS $16.5 BILLION collected to subsidize cooling all income HHs
Most of the money raised -- estimated to total $550 million in the first year -- would be used to fund a sweeping progressive platform that encourages further emission cuts and prioritizes investments in low-income and tribal communities' ability to respond to climate change.
figuratively and literally on fire
Detractors on the left note Oregon's program, like California's, offers concessions to nearly every industry to dampen the potential financial impact. For the program's first few years, the state will cover a majority of pollution allowances for some industries, including natural gas and utilities companies. The fossil fuel industry is essentially the only one on the hook for paying the full price
ETS, KRX, CTX, and Guangdong Pilot ETS competition for sales
California's program [CARB prices] has added 2 million jobs and grown its GDP by $700 billion [BWAH!] since taking effect in 2012. The nine northeastern states [RGGI?! renewable fuel network] with a more limited cap-and-trade program saw $1.4 billion in net economic benefits and 14,500 new jobs from 2015 to 2017, according to a report from Analysis Group.
