The staggering cost and challenge of new infrastructure pummels any quick energy transition plan

Quote:
Hard-core environmental pioneer Michael Shellenburger has now changed his tune by approximately 180 degrees, now stating exactly what the far-too-quiet petroleum sector has been saying – that powering a green energy future by relying on wind/solar is pretty much impossible. Bill Gates is now saying the same thing.

Idealism is a great thing to energize people in a new direction. Idealism that ignores the voices of people who do all the work is best left in grade school.
Bold mine.

Progs hit hardest.

Curious, that.

And just like that, they suddenly HATE the Electoral College

Quote:
In all fairness, it's not just that the Democrats [read: Socialists-Communists] HATE the Electoral College and are now pushing to get rid of it for being in their path to power...they HATE America and the Republic* even more than they LOVE being in control.

Don't you dare clean your room!!!

"Jordan Peterson's popular '12 Rules' book banned by New Zealand booksellers because of Christchurch mosque massacre."
One sidenote...
A New Zealand bookstore stopped selling Jordan Peterson’s book in light of the Christchurch mosque shootings, but continues to offer Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf.”
Say, what?!?
Actions—> consequences.

New Zealand Bookstore Disappears From Facebook, Twitter After Banning Jordan Peterson Book

Quote:
In the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque attacks, the New Zealand bookstore Whitcoulls removed psychologist Jordan Peterson's bestselling book 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, claiming that the book was connected to the shootings. Shortly afterward, the bookstore's social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter mysteriously disappeared.
Bold mine...

The Impossibility Of Repealing The Law Of Unintended Consequences

Quote:
Here are some interesting data on the actual consequences of plastic bans. The author suggests some ridiculous remedies (fees instead of bans), but at least she is working from actual facts, instead of touchy-feely "IT'S FOR THE CHILDREN AND THE WHALES!" emotive crap.


Plastic bag bans can backfire if consumers just use other plastics instead

Parody or not?

The racist practice of mispronouncing names
https://kuow.org/stories/a-rose-by-a...ould-not-be-me
Quote:
You know when you're standing in line at a coffee shop, trying to figure out what to order? Your mind races. How much caffeine can I handle today? Should I get that overpriced bagel?

Many people with "unconventional" names experience a different kind of anxiety in this moment: figuring out what "safe" and "easy" name they should use that day.
I listened to the podcast. They sound serious. And seriously spoiled. I hope it's a parody.

By the way, it's pronounced "Behj" you racists. Same as beige. +10 oppression points for me.

Wrong thoughts are even more violent than words. They are silent, but deadly.
