Who’s Up For “Structurally Higher Inflation” From The Green Transition?

This is the green transition that Warmists were enthused about in theory, not practice. If they thought it was so great they would have done it voluntarily in their own lives. Let’s not forget that poll after poll after poll showed that most people do not want to spend much of their own money to Do Something

The green transition will lead to ‘structurally higher inflation,’ Principal Chief Strategist Seema Shah says

While much of the focus lately has been on the inflationary environment, some investors are preparing for environmental inflation caused by economies transitioning to green energy.

With the earth’s climate on track to exceed an alarming 2 degrees of warming, governments and companies are under increasing pressure to clean up their business models to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

On track? Who says? Cranks, computer models, and people invested in pushing the doomsday scam?

The premise of this so-called en-flation holds that as sectors scramble for skilled labor, green innovations, and carbon credits, it will cause a chain reaction leading to higher energy — and, eventually, consumer — prices.

“As companies, as countries are trying to deal with the infrastructure that they need, then unfortunately, that does mean a lead to almost a supply shortage,” Principal Global Investors Chief Strategist Seema Shah said on Yahoo Finance Live (video above). “Then you start to see the energy inflation. And en-flation, this transition to green energy, is of the reasons that we do see structurally higher inflation over the coming years over the future.”

In November, inflation increased by the highest rate in 39 years, though it was in line with estimates, according to the Labor Department’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) released on Friday.

Shah suggested that the effects of en-flation are already beginning to take hold — particularly when it comes to energy prices, which were up 3.5% in November as demand outstripped supply.

Of course, most of the people who are forcing this to happen are rich folks, so, this really doesn’t effect them. Particularly since many have government fossil fueled transportation.

Another factor in driving up prices is that regulators may have less patience for companies who drag their feet on net-zero initiatives, especially as governments come under scrutiny around their own nationally-determined targets. As a result, laggards could face higher penalties if they don’t move quickly enough to decarbonize, according to Shah.

So, government artificially inflating energy, goods, food, etc, while also driving businesses to cut staff, offices, and even going out of business.

While tech innovation and investment have created a deflationary effect on prices in the past, Shah argued that green investment, in contrast, may very well cause upward pressures on prices.

“It’s one of the reasons that we don’t see inflation going back down to the 2% level,” she said. “We’re seeing it being higher than what we’ve had over the last decade.”

Sounds great, right? Funny how all the policies from the climate cult end up costing people more money, to go with the loss of freedom, liberty, and choice.

    Remember: the government loves inflation, because the dollar-denominated national debt falls in proportion to inflated dollars. Of course, that’s also short-sighted, because it also means borrowing more money means borrowing at higher interest rates.

    But all current fixed interest mortgages will be paid back with inflated dollars
    Wages are going up especially for those at the bottom

      You do realize the price of EVERYTHING is going up? And this BS about 9% is just that. A good guesstimate of inflation so far this year in reality is about 25-30% because we can’t really take out housing, food energy etc like the GAO does when they cook the books.

      We’d like to ask this: If Trump were still president and everything was just as it is today what would you leftist liars be saying about Trump? What would be major news every night? what would all the Democrats and their communist allies be saying about the prices in this market. If you’re honest about it you know what we mean.

      Do you think things are better today than 2 years ago?
