ICLN: The best global clean energy bet that also saves the world! #itsgettinghotinhere

The way we think and use energy will fundamentally change in the future. I'm seeing two compelling thoughts to this, first relating to what type of energy we will use and second what we will use this energy for. The types of non-renewable resources we use today is putting us on a collision course with global warming so for humanity sake, we will need to rely on a lot more than just a quarter of the world’s energy today being from renewable / clean resources. This will and has already accelerated pressure and speculation that Biden is looking to leave a legacy while in office to spearhead the start of the clean energy movement. Think favourable regulations and state funding in these clean energy companies. There will also be continuous and increasing public pressure to companies to fulfill their role in reducing their carbon footprint. ESG standards to hold companies accountable will be coming to the world sooner rather than later! The second and arguably the “big picture” factor is what and where we will use this energy in 5 to 10 years from now. Surprise, it’s BTC… Hear me out, energy consumption today is delivered to and consumed where humans are clustered (cities, towns) but there are tons of renewable energy sources that aren’t tapped into today because they are too far from the power grid to do so cost-effectively. With the emergence of BTC, it’s store of value, and major upside to miners mining BTC in the future, excess energy will be used to mine BTC in the future. In this future, the cost of mining BTC will be based on how cheap it is to generate energy and that’s where clean energy comes in. Subsidized, sustainable energy sources that can be found anywhere in the world unconstrained is the future we will live in. ICLN is a great ETF to take advantage of both short-term speculation upside and long-term macro fundamentals. Think about what the world will need to turn to when we inevitably dry up all our non-renewable resources. Too bad central banks can only print money and not energy…

The way we think and use energy will fundamentally change in the future. I'm seeing two compelling thoughts to this, first relating to what type of energy we will use and second what we will use this energy for. The types of non-renewable resources we use today is putting us on a collision course with global warming so for humanity sake, we will need to rely on a lot more than just a quarter of the world's energy today being from renewable / clean resources. This will and has already accelerated pressure and speculation that Biden is looking to leave a legacy while in office to spearhead the start of the clean energy movement.
