Dear Blue Blue,

 

Within 24 hours this week, I listened to both the U.S. presidential debate and a BBC radio phone-in on fracking. In the former, it struck me that with jobs and industrial growth high on the agenda, neither candidate seems to really grasp the opportunity renewables and off-grid offer. Trump continually referred to China and lost jobs, but he didn’t link the size and value of the modern solar, wind, and hydro industry there to an opportunity for the U.S. Similarly, Clinton failed to use, for example, Tesla as the kind of new manufacturing that could excite American workers and rejuvenate states like Ohio and Michigan. As for the BBC phone-in, I was shocked at the naivety and unpreparedness of the anti-fracking participants. They relied mostly on the negative environmental costs and, even when presented with the chance to say that renewables could deliver, they had no clear idea of timescales or cost leaving the frackers to win the bridging argument. So, it’s evident that whilst we are all becoming more and more excited about the pace of off-grid and renewables' development, we must work even harder to convince others.
