    Compensating reality

    Energy Shocks
    Yet less visible, and every bit as important as the
    risks, is a compensating reality. New sources of
    oil and gas, and technological advances both for
    energy production and for consumption – and
    the lessons learned and the institutional
    development that has come with those lessons –
    give policymakers the capability to manage
    “energy shocks” and to weather disasters,
    whether natural or man-made, that may lie
    ahead.


    What does compensating reality mean here?

    I think it means - on the other hand things have gotten better - then they list why.

    Maybe.

    It basically balances a previously-mentioned theoretical risk by explaining why the outcome predicted by that theoretical risk differs from the actual, observable outcome.

    Don't feel bad Ramil. I have no idea what it means either and I am a native english speaker.

    I think that this type of speaking or writing is "pompous psycho-babbel".

    I was thinking the same thing myself but gave my guess.

    На мультитране подсказали:

    Однако, может быть и не столь заметно, но реальность вносит свои коррективы, которые подчас имеют не меньшее значение, чем риски.
