    Excellent podcast!

    The only thing Byron didn’t cover, I think, is that part of Biden’s powerlessness comes from the fact that, to do something about energy costs, he would have to cross the enviros — and the enviros are strongly represented among the billionaire donors who really control the Democratic Party.

    The other thing I would add to this is, the rhetoric on this stuff is hard to overcome. Basically, 99% of all gun grabbers sound stupid if they are going up against someone that has put any effort into it. Going against the concept of forcing renewables isn’t as easy. The data is harder to explain even if you understand it. They have all kinds of credentialed obfuscate-ors that are pretty good at giving you a bad time in various ways. If, say, a third of the Democrat politicians genuinely know better, it’s just easier to them to give in.
