Hard Power

 Michael Schellenberger on how the West's green delusions empowered Putin.

It's hard to disagree with what he's saying but I'd like to have seen a reference to the latest IPCC report and what the effect will be of the continued expansion of oil and gas production. It's a bind for sure -- if we don't reduce our energy consumption then it's difficult to see how we avoid total wipeout -- but I fully appreciate how Putin has the upper hand, even though I despise him for actions in Ukraine and everything he stands for. Thanks for sharing. I've now signed up to his Substack page. Take care, Julian

Michael Schellenberger is a very interesting commentator.

I am currently reading his book on the decline of San Francisco.
