A great energy talking point from a new Energy Champion
At my first Energy Champions meeting last week I taught participants how to create effective “talking points” that can be used on Twitter and other influential platforms.
I’ve already gotten several good ones, includingÂ this excellent oneÂ that has been seen upwards of 200,000 times.
I look forward to a future where I’m seeing dozens of such points generated–and shared around the world–every day.
Here’s aÂ linkÂ to info about Energy Champions.
Documenting 100% renewable lies
Later this month I am going to start a weekly Twitter feature, exposing in detail the dangerous lies of companies that claim to be “100% renewable.”
Since I have many thousands of readers from the energy industry, I’m hoping that some of you will be able to send me visual documentation of how certain companies are connected to fossil fuels. E.g., data centers connected to aÂ predominantlyÂ coal local grid.
I’ve have lots of good public information about this but good images are harder to find.
Obviously, don’t do anything illegal.
Ways to support energy progress in Africa — looking for recommendations
I am researching ways to support the adoption of low-cost, reliable fossil fuel energy in Africa–which is a huge victim of the anti-fossil fuel movement.
If any of my readers can suggest ways to do this, including any non-profit organizations I can support, let me know.
Power Hour: economist Saifedean Ammous on “fiat science,” “fiat education,” and “fiat fuels”
Here’s the official description of this week’sÂ Power Hour.
On this week’s Power Hour Alex Epstein interviews economist Dr. Saifedean Ammous, about how systematic government control–“fiat”–wreaks havoc in the realms, not just of currency, but of science, education, and energy.
- How government control in the realm of ideas is treated as benign but is in fact incredibly dangerous.
- The myth that leading universities such as Harvard, Yale, and Stanford are “private.”
- What freedom of scientific inquiry looks like, and how it gave birth to the modern world.
- Why much of today’s “modeling” would not exist in a free market.
- How the moral case for fossil fuels is taking hold in the Bitcoin community.
You can watch onÂ YouTubeÂ or listen onÂ Apple Podcasts.
- There has been a revealing video from the 1970s with Leonard Nimoy warning the world about catastrophic global cooling. I posted a newÂ Twitter threadÂ about what we can learn from the global cooling scare. It contains some material from Fossil Future.
- I created someÂ talking pointsÂ about the disastrous “Clean Energy Standard” Congress and the Biden Administration are pursuing.
- MyÂ standard answerÂ when asked if I’d live near a nuclear reactor.
- Freedom and energy in Cuba
- Here’s a greatÂ articleÂ about how what I call California’s game of “reliability chicken”, and how it’s affecting its neighbors.
- OneÂ tweetÂ explains the core of the “green energy” movement.
- Elon Musk continues to lie about solar and batteries, and I continue to publiclyÂ refute him. I’m not going anywhere, and my reach is growing fast, so at some point he’s going to have to answer.
- See theÂ 11 winnersÂ of my Twitter contest last week to refute Bernie Sandersâ€™s claim that “The USA put people on the moon 50 years ago. We can sure as hell transform our energy system away from fossil fuels to 100% renewables today and create millions of jobs in the process.”
