The Race of Our Lives
A summary of Jeremy Grantham’s note to investors,
in pictures and charts, supplemented with content from
Future Today
Jeremy Leggett
Preface
The original paper is 35 pages and a read of >1 hour.
These 50 pictures and charts are a scan of <10 minutes.
I am hoping, therefore, that they are a useful supplement
…and importantly an inducement to read the original paper.
The supplementary slides are from the Future Today chronology
of selected developments in climate, energy, tech and
the future of civilization: www.jeremyleggett.net
Style, content, and sources
Extracts from the Grantham paper are within quotation marks.
All other passages are my understanding of the main points.
The powerpoint version of this summary includes source urls
as notes, and is available free for any use, by anybody, at
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1pJlLMT57QZbUP0ZjWf5RMrexzDuanaC2

e.g. Expect global weighted cost of utility-scale solar PV to fall from
$0.10/kWh in 2017 to $0.03 in 2018, and to average $0.06.
BNEF estimates the 2nd TW will arrive by mid-2023, costing 46% less

complicit in a global cover up of data, funded propaganda,
delayed decarbonization, and “recklessly endangered us.”

The Race of Our Lives: How Climate Change is Accelerating and What We Must Do

  • 1. The Race of Our Lives A summary of Jeremy Grantham’s note to investors, in pictures and charts, supplemented with content from Future Today Jeremy Leggett
  • 2. Preface The original paper is 35 pages and a read of >1 hour. These 50 pictures and charts are a scan of <10 minutes. I am hoping, therefore, that they are a useful supplement …and importantly an inducement to read the original paper. The supplementary slides are from the Future Today chronology of selected developments in climate, energy, tech and the future of civilization: www.jeremyleggett.net
  • 3. Style, content, and sources Extracts from the Grantham paper are within quotation marks. All other passages are my understanding of the main points. The powerpoint version of this summary includes source urls as notes, and is available free for any use, by anybody, at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1pJlLMT57QZbUP0ZjWf5RMrexzDuanaC2 The original Jeremy Grantham paper can be downloaded at https://www.gmo.com/docs/default-source/research-and-commentary/strategies/asset- allocation/the-race-of-our-lives-revisited.pdf
  • 4. Carbon dioxide, derived mainly from fossil-fuel burning, is the main problem. Concentrations are >2x highest level in past 400k years. 7th Jan 2016 The reasons we are in a race-against-time begin with rapid build up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere Source:NOAA,summarizingdatafromicecores
  • 5. “Please explain to me, if anyone knows, why these people say stuff like that. I have no idea. Perhaps they hate their grandchildren.” 7th Jan 2016 Rising GHGs are driving accelerating global warming: a provable fact, yet some still say there is no warming Global Surface Temperature Compared to 1951-1980 Average Source:Asof8/31/16Source:NASA GoddardInstituteforSpaceStudies,GMO
  • 6. Michael Mann et al’s temperature reconstruction from 1999 in blue. PAGES2K temperature reconstruction 2013 in green. Data record in red. A “hockey stick” of global average temperature rise was first published 20 years ago 7th Jan 2016 20th Apr 2018
  • 7. “Jeremy Leggett is one of those prominent establishment climate activists who has made a tidy living from the renewables scam.” 7th Jan 2016 28th Jul 2018 Today, even tabloids worry about global heatwaves, …but some columnists keep pumping out denial
  • 8. One of the worst is increase in downpours ( & soil erosion). In the USA, annual 3 inch rainfall days compared to average are up 20% since 1975. 7th Jan 2016 9th Aug 2018 Dire impacts are becoming clear, and these will increase unless we decarbonize our economies Source:EM-DATdatabase
  • 9. e.g.: “This event is unprecedented & all impacts are unknown & beyond anything experienced” 7th Jan 2016 27th Aug 2017 Hurricane Harvey forecast rainfall Houston city officials: “Head to your roofs, not your attics” So says the US National Weather Service
  • 10. 7th Jan 2016 28th Jun 2017 The Paris Agreement pledges emissions will fall enough to keep warming < 2˚C & 1.5˚C if we can Decarbonisation by 2040 As a long list of climate experts summarise in Nature, that means total decarbonization - retreat from burning fossil fuels - by c. 2040. Source:C.Figueresetal
  • 11. As global energy demand grew 2.1% in 2017, CO2 emissions rose 1.4% to a historic high of 32.5 Gt 7th Jan 2016 21st Mar 2018 “We are far from being in line with the climate targets set in Paris”: Fatih Birol, IEA Executive Director. Flat Global energy-related CO2 emissions 2000 - 2017 Source: IEA
  • 12. 7th Jan 2016 13th Feb 2018 Leak of the forthcoming IPCC report concludes 66% chance of 1.5˚C target is “already out of reach”
  • 13. “Wind and solar are going to be cheaper than the operating costs of coal and nuclear, even the best coal and the best nuclear.” 7th Jan 2016 “Our one material advantage is in the accelerating burst of green technologies” Unsubsidized Levelized Cost of Renewable Energy over Time Source:Lazard,asofend2016 “….better than anyone expected 10 or even 5 years ago”
  • 14. 7th Jan 2016 13th Jan 2018 Renewable electricity will be consistently in lower range of undercutting fossil fuels by 2020: IRENA e.g. Expect global weighted cost of utility-scale solar PV to fall from $0.10/kWh in 2017 to $0.03 in 2018, and to average $0.06.
  • 15. BNEF estimates the 2nd TW will arrive by mid-2023, costing 46% less than the c. $1.3 tn required for the first. 54% wind, 46% solar. 7th Jan 2016 2nd Aug 2018 World passes 1,000 GW of wind and solar, on a rising exponential curve, in the last days of June

  • 18. Exponential rise of electric vehicles will likely halve today’s cost by 2025, and halve it again with the next generation of solid-state batteries. 7th Jan 2016 9th Aug 2018 Battery cost “has dropped 85% in 8 years, faster than solar panels, wind or anything else. Quite remarkable” Lithium-ion Battery Pack Prices and Annual Decline Source:BloombergNewEnergyFinance,GMO Lowendof2025estimaterange,at$40/kWh,assumes adoptionofnext-generationsolid-statebatterytechnology.
  • 19. BYD’s first electric bus, just seven years ago, was seen as a joke. Now China’s e-buses are displacing 233,000 barrels of oil a day. Every five weeks, Chinese cities are adding 9,500 electric buses – the size of the London bus fleet 7th Jan 2016 23rd Apr 2018 Honda’s Asimo
