    to using oil themselves, and why nobody else should dare to try going for renewables. The bastards!

    What?

      export the oil for cash, as compared to using it domestically.  clearly  if they want to do that, it's up to them . . .

      In any event, this seems to be a similar discussion as we had about Colorado a couple days ago, where they are at least make some effort to go to renewables, all the while exporting substantial amounts of fossil fuels elsewhere.   At the end of the day it's pretty much a wash, it would seem.

      •  No wash if you think it through. (1+ / 0-)

        Unless you want to assume the importers are braindead and will choose to be that way forever, they'd likely start seeing the sense, and the ultimate savings, of going renewable themselves.

        In any case, when you do the Denmark impact on the global balance sheet: Renewables Up, Fossil Down. (the fossil buyers would be getting it elsewhere anyway, not having renewables to depend upon.)
