走向“绿色”的悖论

2022.02.05 我们已经认识到,清洁能源的过渡是应对全球气候变化的前进方向。但这样的“绿色转型”承载着巨大的成本。 彭博新能源财经(BNEF)估计,到2050年,政府和企业将需要至少投资92万亿美元,以便以足够快的速度减少排放,以防止气候变化的噩梦。 大幅减少排放的所有希望基于我们扩大电力作用的能力。 总体而言,BNEF预计到2050年,全球发电量至少需要翻一番,达到近6.22万太瓦时,占最终能源消耗的近50%,而目前仅为19%。 BNEF还称,本十年排放量可能下降的四分之三以上可能来自电力供应以及风能和太阳能等可再生能源的日益使用。 这一时期排放量下降的另外14%可以通过汽车、家庭和工业从燃烧化石燃料转向电力来实现。 BNEF模型显示,这一转变需要在基础设施上投入更多资金,以适应清洁能源。到2050年,每年平均投入将达到3.1万亿美元和5.8万亿美元之间。这意味着最终的“清洁能源”法案可能高达173万亿美元,约为2019年美国国内生产总值的八倍。 欧洲央行最近声称,全球变暖的潜在影响将远远超过我们在清洁能源上的支出。欧洲央行最糟糕的情况(即不采取行动)可能会使欧洲GDP下降10%。然而,这真的很多吗? 撇开支出规模不谈,更仔细地审视我们走向更绿化未来的道路,以及所涉及的一切可能会模糊什么是清洁能源和什么不是清洁能源之间的界限。 什么是清洁能源?我们如何获得它? 现代经济的电气化和脱碳化都面临着其所需的原材料 — […]

铜的繁荣可能持续几十年,促使全球寻找新的供应

2022.01.15 在这历史性的一年中,铜价不仅一次,而且两次打破纪录,在10月中旬达到4.76美元/磅(或10476美元/吨)的峰值。 2021上半年,铜在最大消费国中国的带动下,在全球经济活动急剧复苏的背景下反弹。同时推高价格的还有一种信念,即与疫情相关的刺激措施,加上全球对脱碳的推动,将进一步提振对工业金属的需求。 这导致铜价在4月底突破10000美元/吨的水平,这是十年来的第一次,并最终在一周后飙升至新高。 然后在下半年,由于能源危机影响了几家主要生产商并威胁到全球供应,铜价再次获得提振。 10 月,来自欧洲仓库的金属订单激增,导致伦敦金属交易所 (LME) 库存暴跌89%,降至47年来的最低水平。 所有这些事件构成了铜业破纪录的一年,尽管许多人认为该金属的牛市才刚刚开始。2022年及以后是否还会出现铜价反弹?我们将在下面详细探讨。 2022年的铜 分析师们倾向于认为,市场波动可能会在2022年的大部分时间内持续,而且有几种相互冲突的力量在起作用,这将限制铜等大宗商品的价格。 包括高盛(Goldman […]

The 50th anniversary of Nixon’s colossal error

It seems fitting that the year we are expecting to see an unprecedented rise in US government spending and money-printing to spur an economic recovery, marks the 50th anniversary of the end of the gold standard.

Done at the time to fight an economic crisis, we are still feeling the effects of this disastrous decision, five decades on.

In this article, we explain why President Nixon did what he did, and why every promise that unshackling the US government from the requirement of maintaining the dollar's value in terms of gold would mean for the United States, has been broken.

Plugging the fossil fuel energy gap with nuclear

The modernization and electrification of our global transportation system will require a change hitherto unprecedented in the history of civilization. Not even the shift from horse and buggy to the crank-start Ford Model T can compete with what it will take to electrify the billion-plus cars on the planet’s roads, and eventually put a complete stop to noxious tailpipe emissions resulting from the combustion of gasoline and diesel fuel, that are poisoning the air we breathe.

For now, thorium is a theoretical solution to our energy dilemma, but it could be much more than that. A concerted effort to develop thorium reactor technology could provide stable, clean, base-load power for millions, something that is not possible with renewables due to the intermittency factor and the current early stages of renewable battery storage technology. It is safer and better for the environment than uranium and can even use radioactive waste as feedstock for the nuclear reaction, thus killing two birds with one stone. The market is not yet ready for thorium, but when it is, a whole new mining sector and supply chain will be born.

San Francisco 矿山的生产改善支持 Magna Gold 成为墨西哥下一个中端生产商

2021.12.20 虽然2021年在很大程度上对黄金来说是乏善可陈的一年,但随着我们进入新的一年,贵金属的潮流可能正在转变。 本周,尽管美联储(Federal Reserve)如一些人所预期的那样表示将提前结束大规模刺激计划,但金价保持强劲,这表明其通胀目标已经实现,加息步伐将加快。 市场人士一直认为,更高的利率可以通过增加高收益投资的吸引力来压低金价。美联储周三宣布后黄金的初始表现似乎就是如此。 然而,该黄色金属最终抵消了损失,甚至反弹得更高,因为市场一直预期央行会采取更鹰派的举动。 与美联储声明同时发布的预测显示,官员们预计明年将适当上调3/4个百分点。去年3月,在新冠疫情爆发期间,美国央行全面降息1个百分点,而在采取紧急行动后,一直保持基准利率稳定。 考虑到所有因素,一些人实际上认为这是促使黄金在2021年强劲收尾的动力。 TD Securities 大宗商品策略全球主管巴特·梅莱克(Bart Melek)向彭博社解释道:“黄金市场从最初的下跌中恢复,因为美联储似乎只比市场定价稍微强硬。”。 Melek […]

通胀压力不会消失,却会对黄金矿商创造“价值”

2021.11.11 悄悄地,黄金市场已经历了一段复苏期,由于通胀压力不断累积,黄金市场最近攀升至2个月以来的最高水平。 美国最新就业和工资数据等经济指标几乎没有改变决策者的观点。美联储仍然认为这一通胀是暂时的,因此不会加速加息。英格兰银行似乎也在效仿。 但许多分析师不敢苟同。一些人甚至认为,央行已经失去了对通胀的控制,让市场暂时自生自灭。 这是因为自9月份以来,投资者愿意买入更多黄金作为对冲工具,过去几周黄金价格的走势就是明证。 据密切关注形势的人士称,黄金仍有上涨空间,一旦通胀最终开始,黄金将被视为一种“创造价值”的机会。 此外,黄金开采公司也会升值;它们很可能是2020年等另一轮涨势的最大受益者。 最近,矿业界两位最大的人物预测,投资者很快就会意识到,全球通胀压力远比预期的更大,这可能导致金价升至3000美元/盎司 虽然当今有大量的初级矿业公司持有黄金项目,但我们(AOTH)已将目光投向了那些仅位于世界顶级黄金开采管辖区内、具有高增长优势的项目。 新兴安大略黄金公司 当我们提起世界上最大的黄金猎场时,很难忽视加拿大的安大略省。 该省至少有20个矿山在运营,每年生产超过73000盎司黄金,是全国最多的。它所有地区的金矿开采都很活跃,包括Timmins、Red Lake […]
