It's so hard to know how to feel about that.

Very non uplifting events with a glimmer of a silver lining.

It would have been much better to have an acceleration towards clean energy without war, but conflict is the mother of innovation I guess.

Same thing happened with Covid.

Without it we wouldnt be forced to adapt to things like 'working from home' or cut down on things that in retrospeced we can live without. Without it that transition could have went on for decades before the culture slowly shifts.

Covid sucked, but it did push some positive changes.

Since the war is in fact happening, we can only hope for and work towards positive outcomes from it.

Or, maybe another way to look at it: Russia’s invasion didn’t cause disruption in Russian gas & oil markets—the Western response to the war did. It’s like how British rationing during WWII (a response to Nazi aggression) caused the British population to develop a taste for horrible canned food. Except a taste for renewables is actually good

>horrible canned food

I'll have you know baked beans and spam are the pinnacle of culinary excellence and I won't hear a bad word said against the great British canned delights!

Although I like the rest of your post, you have a point there.
