If you have any interest in what’s really happening in our crazy world, Peter Zeihan is an amazing source of unbiased insight as to what is going on.
And he’s an amazing person. In each video, you’ll see him broadcasting as he’s hiking from some different/interesting place in the world, with facts you don’t usually hear elsewhere.
When the major auto manufacturers start changing their EV plans, it’s probably a sign something’s not quite right. For all those who think they’re better than everyone else because they drive a Tesla, this video is for you…
Most people see electric vehicles and think it’s good, but remember to read that fine print. Given an increased reliance on Chinese manufacturing and issues with the energy mix and materials, those “planet-haters” driving internal combustion vehicles likely have a smaller carbon footprint than EV drivers.
Transitioning the world’s fleet of cars to EVs is just plain impractical unless we uncover a bottomless supply of materials and invent a new battery chemistry. Until that happens, we’ll continue to see EV sales fall and auto manufacturers lean away from EV plans.
In an ideal world, we would prioritize more practical green technologies instead of pissing away capital and resources on Elon’s new Model XYZ123.
Peter Zeihan is a world expert in geopolitics: the study of how place impacts financial, economic, cultural, political, and military developments. He presents customized executive briefings to a wide array of audiences including financial professionals, Fortune 500 firms, energy investors, and a mix of industrial, power, agricultural, and consulting associations and corporations. Mr. Zeihan has been featured in, and cited by, numerous newspapers and broadcasts including The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, AP, Bloomberg, CNN, ABC, The New York Times, Fox News, and MarketWatch.
But we also believe in doing good in the world. At Zeihan On Geopolitics, we select a single charity to sponsor.
Our chosen charity is the group Medshare, which provides emergency medical services to communities in need, with a very heavy emphasis on locations facing acute crises. Medshare operates right in the thick of it. Until further notice, every cent we earn from every book we sell in every format through every retailer is going to Medshare’s Ukraine fund.
We hope you’ll consider a contribution to Medshare’s efforts.
