📊 EV’s Charts of the Week #102
Gas demand, transistors, global (football) goals ++
Hi, I’m Azeem Azhar. I convene Exponential View to help us understand how our societies and political economy will change under the force of rapidly accelerating technologies. Every Wednesday, I do this in Charts of the Week.
In today’s edition, we look at:
Covid lessons for energy transition,
A short history of the transistor, and what’s coming next,
Afghans’ view of American leadership, one year after the controversial pulling of troops from the country.
Today’s full edition of Charts of the Week is open to members of Exponential View.
CHART OF THE WEEK
Gas demand in Europe has fallen, partly as a consequence of the continent’s plans to reduce its dependency on Russian gas. The lesson for changing the energy system is the same as it as with covid: rapid action is possible, if it is prioritised.
