"Free people can say 'no'. Free people can refuse demands for their money, time, and children. Slaves cannot. There is no freedom without the freedom to say 'no'. If someone demands that you do something and you can say 'no' and refuse to do it, then you are a free human being. If you can be forced to do something or surrender something that you do not wish to, then you are a slave. No other test need be applied" -- Michael Rivero

Big banks are pushing to invest your money in the most woke companies and movements imaginable. Big surprise, those investments often tank. Now, one red state is taking a stand against this ESG scheme. And they are hitting these banks where it hurts.

From The Post Millennial:
The state of West Virginia has barred four financial institutions from entering into state contracts due to their environmental policies, with potential contracts valued at tens of billions of dollars at stake.

National governments are infringing on citizens’ human rights by not doing enough to tackle climate change, the European Court of Human Rights has held in a landmark ruling that could have far-reaching consequences and influence climate policy across the continent.

 

Thanks to Net Zero, the U.K. has some of the highest electricity prices in the world, paying more than five times as much as China and twice as much as the U.S., says Dr. John Fernley. And it's getting worse.

An extraordinary story suggesting that male prostitutes in Indonesia self-identifying as ‘trans women’ are struggling to make a living due to climate change has been doing the rounds of mainstream media. The online Independent reported one sex worker complaining that “no one is coming out during the longer rainy season’, while another noted, “I no longer want to endure the heat and rain on the streets”. Needless to say, the actual data fail to give much credence to their weather woes. 

"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin blamed Monday's solar eclipse, Friday's earthquake and the expected cicada breeding season on "climate change."

Eight groups will receive tens of billions in taxpayer dollars, the Biden White House announced today, in an effort help struggling Americans reduce their carbon output.

The $20 billion was awarded by the Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday in the form of federal 'green bank' grants to eight community development banks and nonprofits for use in low income communities that lack the resources to modernize.

But Republicans in Congress blasted the funding as a taxpayer-financed 'slush fund' designed to support the Biden administration's 'special interest friends.'

On Sunday, The Telegraph published an article about the death of the North Sea oil and gas and what it means for Britain – a disaster. Last year alone more than 200 oil and gas wells were plugged, eight platforms were removed and another 180 of the UK’s 284 oil and gas fields will close down by the end of the decade. Mass closures are not the result of eco-protests, nor because of a lack of demand, The Telegraph wrote and supply isn’t dwindling either. Instead, operators blame punitive taxes for the rapid pullback, with some facing levies of more than 100 per cent on their profits.
