Over the last 6 years I warned policymakers directly in the US, Canada, Japan, UK, S. Korea, Netherlands, Philippines, and indirectly through the media, that over-reliance on renewables, & under-investment in reliable energy sources, threatened their economies & security.
In response the renewable energy industry waged a non-stop campaign to defame me, Democrats slandered me, and then denied me a chance to respond, & even some pro-nuclear people labeled me inflammatory for pointing out the obvious problems with renewables

You might detect a pattern

The people who set the world aflame declare as inflammatory the people who dare yell “fire,” and try to cancel them
At this very moment I am being actively censored by Facebook, to the applause of progressive “scientists”, for my attempts to warn the public of the dangers of climate extremism, particularly over-reliance on renewables

So are @BjornLomborg & @JohnStossel

A lot of people believe that the reason for the global energy crisis, which is threatening economic recovery, is because we didn’t do enough renewables, but the opposite is the case. Nations overinvested in weather-dependent renewables & under-invested in reliable power sources
Renewables will constitute 70% the $530 billion spent globally on new electricity generation capacity in 2021

It’s been that way for years. Had that money gone to reliable energy sources, there would be no global energy supply shortage
Climate activism helped create the energy supply shortages directly through pressure on companies and indirectly through policies that subsidized unreliable renewables and disincentivized reliable power.

More African Americans died from San Francisco's drug experiment in one year than died from the Tuskegee experiment in 40 years

The progressive drug liberalization experiment is immoral and must end. Now.

For over a decade, the city of San Francisco has been carrying out an experiment. What happens when thousands of drug addicts are not only permitted to use heroin, fentanyl and meth publicly, but also enabled to do so? The results are in: hundreds of them die annually.
Last year, 712 people in San Francisco died from drug overdoses or poisoning, and this year a similar number are on track to do so.

Swords up

Let's go

“You have heard it was said, ‘Love your neighbor & hate your enemy. But I tell you: love your enemies & pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:43

It's time to treat and shelter the sick

It's time to restore civic order from mass illness

It's time to rescue human dignity from depravity

On Tuesday, HarperCollins will publish my new book, San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities

I wrote it to expose the system's role in perpetuating a sinister situation

Interest in the book is high. On Monday I recorded interviews with @JordanPeterson & @RubinReport
Yesterday I recorded a three hour-long interview with @joerogan
And @nytimes has told HarperCollins that it will publish a review of it.
Pre-publication sales of San Fransicko are 4x higher than the ones for Apocalypse Never, but that is no guarantee the book will become a best-seller, so please take a moment now to pre-order a copy for yourself, and a few copies for friends and family.

Top German newspaper @handelsblatt blows whistle on renewable energy scam

- wind & solar energies have massive environmental footprint

- "ESG" eco-criteria = greenwashing

- "Now the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is investigating"

- "This is a wake-up call for the entire industry" says former head of German pseudo-sustainability fund turned whistleblower.

- "Former head of sustainable investing Blackrock, Tariq Fancy, calls ESG boom a "dangerous placebo"
"Sustainable investments make investors feel like they can invest in something 'good' while earning attractive returns. The industry had a lot of leeway to define the ESG criteria in such a way that they fit the respective providers."

High energy prices force factories to close in UK, exposing its over-reliance on gas & renewables

“There is a way out of the bind. Yes, it is expensive, but the alternative, as we are seeing now, could easily be far more costly. We need to go nuclear.”

“Even when things do improve, businesses have now been alerted to the fact that the UK is more susceptible to big price spikes than other countries. Wholesale prices have quadrupled, according to UK Steel”
“On Wednesday, CF Industries Holdings, a big fertilizer maker, said it is shutting down its plants in Billingham and Ince because of high natural gas prices. It couldn’t say when production will resume.”
