Heat or Eat? Americans Must Choose as Energy Prices Soar; Is ESG a Scam? | Guests: Lukianoff, Holt
Jacki talks with Greg Lukianoff, co-author of The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas are Setting Up a Generation for Failure, about why the younger generation is fragile, motivated by fear, and easily manipulated by false narratives. Then, David Holt, President of Consumer Energy Alliance, returns to the show to review “Heat or Eat: Tough Choices for Americans as Winter Energy Bills Will Cost at Least 13.6 Billion More.” - - - - - Jacki recommends you check out the Domestic Producers Energy Alliance (DEPA) new ad campaign asking why President Biden is begging OPEC to come to our rescue when American producers are more than capable – if only the government would end its war on fossil fuels. Depausa.org - - - - - Also, we talk “Blown Away: The People vs. Wind Power” starring our friend, Chuck DeVore at Texas Public Policy Foundation and airing on FOX News. - - - - - Then, are “green” investments really saving the planet? Insider Tariq Fancy, who used to head up BlackRock’s sustainable investing, suggests ESG finance can actually make climate issues worse, that we cannot point to evidence that green investing is improving climate outcomes, and that ESG narratives “mislead the public.” ESG funds have huge fees and are arguably better for Wall Street and polluters than the planet.
Censorship Kills; 700 Dead in TX Storm?; US Frac’ers Tame Gas Prices; Are Vaccine Mandates Legal?
Daniel Turner of Power the Future joins Jacki to explain that Big Tech censorship, particularly on issues of science, is hurting the nation. - - - - - Then, the death toll from the February Texas power grid failure is now estimated to be somewhere between 700 and 1,000 dead. Jacki explains how the official state death count of 150 is only part of the picture, how we know this will happen again, and what you can do to prepare. - - - - - Next, why is our government warring against U.S. fossil fuels, yet begging OPEC to pump more? Why have Biden family members made outrageous money from foreign oil & gas deals, boosting America’s competition, while the President does what he can to handicap American producers? - - - - - Jacki reviews a segment of Mollie Hemingway’s new book: RIGGED: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections. - - - - - Two employees of a Texas new station lost their jobs after refusing to take a vaccine, despite Governor Abbott’s order protecting medical choice. They share their stories and what they are doing to assert their rights and to invite others to connect with their effort.
‘National Divorce’; Energy Costs Mean Choosing Between Heating and Eating| Guest: D. Reaboi
Is a “national divorce” in our future? David Reaboi, the mind behind the “Late Republic Nonsense” Substack newsletter, joins Jacki to review his new, widely circulated piece: “National Divorce is Expensive, but Worth Every Penny.”Reaboi outlines how America could well become two separate cultural and economic zones. - - - - - Next, European countries are making such poor choices about nuclear energy, coal, and natural gas that their citizens could have to choose between heating and eating. Will we see Europe reverse course, undoing premature net-zero policies as California is quietly doing now? - - - - - -Then, Jacki encourages women employed in the energy sector to get involved with the Women’s Energy Network, which has chapters across the country and just held its annual Leadership Conference in Dallas.
Unfreezing the Truth; Environmentalists are MIA| Guests: J. Zadrozny, C. Woodward, J. Isaac (TPPF)
Hundreds of Texans died in the February winter storm. These deaths were entirely preventable, yet Texas – and many other states – are positioned to experience a repeat due to false narratives against fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Jason Isaac of TPPF explains on this episode – and in a new PragerU video. - - - - -
Self-styled “environmentalists” are selective in their outrage. Where are they as millions traverse the southern border, trampling underfoot the delicate desert ecosystem, and leaving millions of pounds of trash in the process? A real immigration policy could properly manage the process, preventing the damage. Jacki speaks with John Zadrozny, Director of the America First Policy Institute’s Center for Homeland Security and Immigration. - - - - - Jacki shares failed apocalyptic prophecies of environmental doom and gives hope that human innovation can solve earth’s challenges. - - - - - Plus, the UK’s extreme anti-fossil fuel policies have placed its citizens in peril. How? Jacki speaks with Colin Woodward, a chemist in the UK, who breaks down the science behind the UK’s natural gas and CO2 shortage – which are reportedly leading to food shortages, self-inflicted and completely avoidable.
Climate Change Facts Dispel Fear; Oil, Gas, & Coal Shortages Bring Food and Electricity Shortages
This episode: Fear is the strongest driver for most people. Poll: 45% of people aged 16-25 live in such extreme fear of climate change that it impacts their daily lives. Half of young Americans think “humanity is doomed.” Would expected climate change actually bring “doom”? The climate is changing, humans are contributing, but our ability to manage our impact on the planet is grossly underestimated. Why are we more concerned about climate change in 100 years than the 30% spike in U.S. murders in the past year? - - - - - Demand for coal, oil and natural gas is surging at the same time countries create a self-inflicted shortage by “transitioning” from these sources. The resulting price spike is expected to trigger food shortages and a scary winter of electricity and heat rationing for the U.K. and Europe. Jacki explores the shift in world power as a result of the energy policy choices countries make. There are clear winners and losers that might surprise you. - - - - - A whistleblower at a large European bank reveals that “ESG” socially conscious funds are sometimes not as advertised, and SEC Chairman, Gary Gensler, is taking action for greater truth in advertising. Buyer beware.
Great if you love paranoid conspiracy theories and fact-lite presentation
I admit that I couldn’t actually get through an entire episode, but I listened to about a third of the one about the climate bank and how it’s a dumb thing. Jason Isaac— representing the Texas Public Policy Foundation, catastrophizes the fact that investment in renewables are growing, even going so far as to say that banks are making “bad” investments in renewables. Daily herself echoes this bizarre and quite preposterous notion that companies aren’t actually driven by profit. (I guess the 300,000 jobs in the renewables sector and the billions in profits are just... what, smoke and mirrors?)
Anyway, there are a few things I thought were at least worth *thinking* about— but there was so much cognitive dissonance that it wasn’t worth killing more brain cells to finish. TPPF comprises some utterly rabid climate change deniers, and Isaac himself thinks that climate change is but alarmism, given the fact that plants need CO2 to survive and he enjoys a Topo Chico (actual quote). He also erroneously says that a warming climate doesn’t pose a threat by misleadingly saying that extreme cold events are a more immediate threat than heat events.
Most puzzling is just the idea that we should somehow chase after socially conservative investments. Daily herself pushes this through some hokey organization that rates organizations and companies by how conservative their values are. The top-scoring candidates are almost all nonprofits. The bottom-scoring candidates are all— wait for it- Fortune 100 companies. What a weird world to live in.
