Michael Shellenberger, the environmentalist who opposes the Green New Deal

Published

Nuclear power is one of the safest, most efficient methods of harnessing energy. It’s also extremely clean compared to fossil fuel use. For his reason, many true environmentalists are pushing for expansion of nuclear power in the United States and across the planet. But their greatest opposition isn’t coming from the fossil fuel industry as some might expect. Their biggest battles are coming from the other version of environmentalists, the ones pushing for the Green New Deal and similar pushes for wind and solar energy.

The question that should come to mind is, “Why don’t environmentalists support nuclear power?”

The answers are complex, but they usually come down to an environmental jamming that’s been spreading through progressive Americans’ talking points for years. Put simply, nuclear energy isn’t expensive enough. No, seriously.

For the tenets of the Green New Deal to work requires a dependence on the most expensive forms of energy harnessing. It does not behoove those who want environmentalism to be the driving force behind the economy to have something as efficient as nuclear power in the mix. Clean, inexpensive energy is not the goal of the new breed of progressive environmentalists. What they really want is control even if that means forcing people to pay more for their energy.

Environmentalist Michael Shellenberger has been a strong green progressive for decades, but he does not buy into the politics behind the Green New Deal or the radical renewable lobby that fights nuclear power. He believes the push for renewable energy has very little to do with the environment and everything to do with the economy.

This video by ReasonTV demonstrates the righteous push by Michael Shellenberger to make nuclear power more prevalent. It doesn’t take massive economic changes to help the environment despite the push by Green New Deal proponents.

Stacey Lennox joined Rick on KOKC to discuss the climate cabal

On this installment of Rick on the Radio, I’m joined by our very own Stacey Lennox. We discuss what she calls the “Climate Cabal” and I call the “Climate Mafia”. We discuss the Sunrise Movement and the coordination behind the scenes regarding the leftist social justice groups. The scariest thing that we come to terms with is there is no ability to counter groups like this on the right.

After the re-airing of the interview that originally aired on KOKC Radio, The show then turns to the current immigration crises. Is there a crisis, or isn’t one? Depending on which day and who among the Democrats you ask, they seem to be totally clueless,

I hope you enjoy these excerpts of the radio shows I am occasionally allowed to do as well as my podcast work. Please feel free to check out KLRNRadio to keep up with all of your grassroots political podcasts and more!

Also, if you like what I’m doing make sure to show KOKCRadio some love. Without them, these shows would never have happened!

The 1st Democratic debate was worse than expected which is saying a lot

If you were going into the 1st Democratic candidates debate with hopes of seeing pandering, high-dollar policy proposals, pandering, cringeworthy attempts to generate memes, questions answered in Spanish, unhinged notions on sexuality, cheerleaders in the media, and pandering, you got it.

In lieu of highlighting the gaffes, attempts at soundbites, and uncomfortable moments, it’s better to leave it to Twitter hot takes to do the job. Presented in no particular order:

One of the biggest reasons this was so bad is because they did everything they could to one-up one another. I know that’s what’s supposed to happen in debates, but there was a strange feeling that so many of them were saying the exact same thing while contradicting one another. I’m not really sure how they were able to pull it off.

But the part for me that raised an eyebrow was Julian Castro’s invocation of “Reproductive Justice.” He wants to give equal rights to abortion for transgender women. He’s ahead of the curve on this one; medical science hasn’t advanced to make that even possible, yet.

It’s been said already many times, but it’s worth repeating. President Trump won tonight’s debate. He came out looking like someone with solid policies compared to the unhinged “solutions” being proposed by these Democratic candidates.

What is the source of the Democrats’ obstruction strategy?

What is the source of the Democrats obstruction strategy

The evolution of the Mueller investigation and the overall Russian collusion hoax has been an interesting one to watch, especially for those of us who have a long enough memory to note this was supposed to be about the Trump campaign colluding with foreign entities to “steal” the 2016 election. That was the storyline for nearly two years, but since the release of the Mueller report, which indicated no collusion at all, the talking points of the Democrats have been 100% focused on obstruction.

Keep in mind, this was never supposed to be an obstruction investigation. That notion is, by its very nature, a separate occurrence that’s usually associated with wrongdoing to begin with, otherwise what was being obstructed? If there was no collusion, and the obstruction that was allegedly committed was supposed to stop the investigation into the collusion, then the only thing being obstructed was a bogus investigation. That doesn’t make obstruction right; even bogus investigations need to be allowed to reach their conclusion. But it’s a far cry from the narrative being pushed out by the Democrats, one which begs the question and relies on circular reasoning.

But that’s not being looked into by many, other than The Epoch Times.

This excellent video by Declassified’s Gina Shakespeare details a media investigation into the investigators that cuts to the heart of the matter. There was no collusion and any obstruction had to be manufactured. But the left continues to push it.
