Well, isn’t she just off to a flying start.

Last week I wrote a blog post–Seattle, A City in Fear Can Be Restored — criticizing violent individuals who have brought repeated destruction to downtown Seattle and attacked and injured numerous people (including reporters and dozens of police officers). I also criticized the irresponsible and reckless actions of members of the Seattle City Council, who allowed the violence to continue, tried to cripple and defund the Seattle Police Department, and who have persecuted Chief Carmen Best.
And was fired for it. But read the whole thing.

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.
I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.
But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

During a crisis that’s seen hundreds of thousands of deaths, it is really difficult to craft a sentence in which COVID-19 swims in the same lexical waters as ‘opportunity.’ But May has done it.
On the anniversary of Chernobyl.
Some of you know I have written a book that many people find controversial. It is called State of Fear, and I want to tell you how I came to write it. Because up until five years ago, I had very conventional ideas about the environment and the success of the environmental movement.
The book really began in 1998, when I set out to write a novel about a global disaster. In the course of my preparation, I rather casually reviewed what had happened in Chernobyl, since that was the worst manmade disaster in recent times that I knew about.
What I discovered stunned me. Chernobyl was a tragic event, but nothing remotely close to the global catastrophe I imagined. About 50 people had died in Chernobyl, roughly the number of Americans that die every day in traffic accidents. I don’t mean to be gruesome, but it was a setback for me. You can’t write a novel about a global disaster in which only 50 people die.
Undaunted, I began to research other kinds of disasters that might fulfill my novelistic requirements. That’s when I began to realize how big our planet really is, and how resilient its systems seem to be. Even though I wanted to create a fictional catastrophe of global proportions, I found it hard to come up with a credible example. In the end, I set the book aside, and wrote Prey instead.
But the shock that I had experienced reverberated within me for a while. Because what I had been led to believe about Chernobyl was not merely wrong—it was astonishingly wrong. Let’s review the data.

While sane, responsible people are rightfully worried about what is still to come from Covid-19, it must be noted that the ardent disciples of the cult known as Radical Leftism appear to be having all of their most heartfelt wishes granted.
First, the economic growth we’ve all enjoyed is about to end, which is something that Bernie Sanders and AOC and Bill Maher and their ilk have been hoping would happen for some time now. But if that wasn’t enough, the reduced growth is certain to reduce carbon emissions. And for the cherry on top, all of the Leftists who have been screaming that we need to reduce the population are now about to have their wishes granted, with an estimated 0.25% – 3.0% of the world’s population about to die. With that population currently at about 7.7 Billion people, this equates to between 19.25 Million to 231 Million souls gone.
The Leftist Death Cult must be rejoicing!
