The latest McKinsey report on the net-zero transition adds to a stream of studies (e.g. IEA) showing global average impacts, with little regional insights. I find global results almost useless, even misleading. Investment needs and impacts will be v different across countries.

McKinsey has some useful regional studies, like the one for the EU published in 2020. Just do more regional reports. mckinsey.com/business-funct…
