New talking points on energy prices, green joblessness, COP 26, and a carbon tax

Last week I introduced my free Energy Talking Points Substack newsletter.

The goal of this newsletter is to give you quick, powerful, well-referenced talking points on the most important energy, environmental, and climate issues.

Over the last week I’ve released these talking points:

I have many more talking points in the pipeline that I’ll be sharing on the Energy Talking Points Substack, including a six-part series on how passing the reconciliation bill will destroy American energy, and a series on the upcoming UN climate conference.

Please share this resource with others. We’re at a crucial period in energy history and I want to get this info to hundreds of thousands of people.

To incentivize you to encourage others to subscribe:

  • If you get 10 people to subscribe I will give you a complimentary “paid subscription,” meaning that you have access to exclusive discussions.
  • If you get 100 people to subscribe I will give you a signed, personalized copy of Fossil Future.
  • If you get 1000 people to subscribe I will give a free virtual speech and Q&A to the organization of your choice.

Note: You can encourage people to subscribe here or you can send me a spreadsheet or other list of names and emails that you have gotten explicit permission to include.

Discussing and debating energy prices with climate economist Richard Tol

On next week’s Power Hour I’ll be having an interesting discussion/debate with leading climate economist Richard Tol.

I have long admired Tol’s academic challenges to climate catastrophism, while still having major issues with his methodology and conclusions.

The impetus for this conversation is Tol’s harsh Twitter comment about my recent analysis of skyrocketing gas and coal prices. To Tol’s credit, when I asked him to come on Power Hour to discuss the issue he quickly agreed.

New interviews

I did an interview this morning on the popular GB News network in the UK about the upcoming COP 26 climate conference. The host, Tom Harwood, asked a lot of interesting, challenging questions and was genuinely open to my views. Watch it here.

Last Thursday I appeared on Fox Business to discuss the Biden Administration and skyrocketing energy prices. (Apologies in advance for the issue with my microphone.)

Also, last week I recorded an interview on climate issues for the popular Mikhaila Peterson Podcast. (Mikhaila is the daughter of Jordan Peterson.) It is expected to be released in early November.

Best-of Power Hour: The Future of Oil With Michael Lynch

This week’s Power Hour is a best-of episode, featuring a now prophetic interview with energy economist Michael Lynch.

In February of this year, there were many prominent claims that post-pandemic demand for oil would quickly decline and fade.

I thought these claims were based on farcical reasoning, and to counter them I invited one of my favorite energy economists, Michael Lynch, to challenge the idea of “peak oil demand.”

Early in the podcast he said:
“In the past couple of years, people have started talking about peak oil demand. And the pandemic has increased the idea that it’s imminent or even passed. You’ve had a few companies like BP and Shell that have scenarios that show a near-term peak in oil demand. And it’s kind of the flavor of the day.

“And the problem is, most of the talk is very superficial.”

I think you’ll find it valuable to hear Lynch’s and my arguments against popular predictions about energy, as we have since been vindicated.

You can watch on YouTube or listen on Apple Podcasts.

Accelerator Call

On Sunday, October 24th, at 6:00 pm ET, 3:00 pm PT, I’ll be hosting my next Accelerator Zoom call.

In addition to answering any and all questions I’ll be discussing:
The latest on Fossil Future—including the new cover!The next evolution of Energy Talking Points.The consequential moment in energy history that we’re in the middle of.
If you’re already an Accelerator, you’ll get an invitation.

If you’re not and want to come on the call, become an Accelerator at any level.

Note: For those who can’t attend I’ll make a recording of the call available for 2 weeks.



To Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Energy,
