Headline: The tricky geoeconomics of going low carbon

The global energy transition throws up new questions related to energy geopolitics. In their latest article in Nature Energy, Mercure et al. explore the implications of a low-carbon global shift and find that energy importers are better off decarbonizing quick, whereas fossil fuel exporters may find themselves between a rock and a hard place. Their analysis, however, leaves some important implications hanging—notably the effect on non-resource exporting nations.
