Green Energy Is Powered by Human Rights Abuse (Guest: Ronald Stein)

December 23, 2021

Relatively wealthy developed countries are demanding the world cease using coal, oil, and natural gas to fight climate change, yet the green energy technologies they would replaced fossil fuel with really aren't good substitutes.

In his new book Clean Energy Exploitation, co-authored with Todd Royal, engineer and energy expert Ronald Stein shows that the policies being pushed by relatively wealthy developed countries to end the use of coal, oil, and natural gas to fight climate change are resulting in atrocious environmental and human right abuses on people in developing countries. Worse still, the so-called green energy technologies being pushed by wealthy elites to replace fossil fuels aren't all that environmentally friendly and really aren't good substitutes for the myriad of uses of fossil fuels.
