There is lots of interesting production data in: Munitions Production OF THE UNITED STATES BY MONTHS, JULY I, 1940 - AUGUST 31, 1945, available at: https://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/p4013coll8/id/3332
Insightful and important post. The implication for the climate transition is clear: we need to get better at the end to end flow of knowledge, from invention to scaled up innovation - by making sure that we leverage more intentionally the research that’s already happened. I recently argued that the infrastructure to do that is underdeveloped https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/cut-climate-tech-invention-to-innovation-time-gianni-giacomelli
I generally appreciate the information presented and the research required to produce this type of article. However I found the reading a bit lengthy.
Great insights thank you
