The Remnant's British invasion continues as Economist deputy editor Edward Carr joins to provide a perspective on how the pandemic has affected nations beyond the United States. Together, he and Jonah examine how issues such as vaccine skepticism, excess deaths, and pandemic-related insanity vary between countries, all while kvetching vigorously about teachers' unions and the politics of marmite. Can we trust China's COVID statistics? Are things as weird in Russia and the U.K. as they are in America? And are we in the early stages of a new Roaring ‘20s? Show Notes:- England prepares to drop COVID restrictions- Boris Johnson's latest scandal- “There's no such thing as learning loss”- Steven Brill: “The Rubber Room”- The Remnant with Paul Bloom- Jonah: “Fear and Loathing in the Time of COVID”- Apollo's Arrow, Nicholas Christakis' book on pandemic madness- The Remnant with Matt Ridley- The Remnant with Michael Shellenberger

As a young man, Jonah left his heart in San Francisco. But after today's conversation with Remnant first-timer Michael Shellenberger, he probably won't be going back for it any time soon. Michael joins the show for an exceedingly wonky discussion of his new book, San Fransicko, which explores how progressive policies are enabling an addiction and mental health crisis in America's cities. Together, they explore the causes of urban decay and what conservatives can do to reverse the trend in places like New York and San Francisco. Tune in for ruminations on nuclear power, Nietzschean philosophy, and criminology, but stick around to hear Jonah and Michael compare notes on what it's really like to be mugged by reality. Show Notes:- Michael's Substack on cities, energy, and the environment- Michael's new book, San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities- Michael's previous book, Apocalypse Never- Tom Wolfe's “The Great Relearning”- San Fransicko reviewed in the New York Times- Madness in the Streets, by Rael Isaac and Virginia Armat- The Homeless, by Christopher Jencks- The Remnant with Shawn Bushway- Michael: “Why Wokeism is a Religion”- Woke Racism, by John McWhorter- John Dewey's “universe with the lid off”- Paul Tillich's definition of religion- Jonah on the case for nuclear power

Over the past few weeks, we have been looking at the reality of the state of the world; not what the corporate media says, not what the politicians are saying, but a new voice - the voice of data. In the previous two episodes, we looked at the Progress of the Human Race. Today, we are tackling the topic of Climate Change. Are we experiencing an increasingly worsening climate? Is it possible that rising temperatures and tides will kill us all? Thankfully, there are a growing number of reputable scientists and authors that are presenting a much more optimistic story than the narrative we typically hear. Using the same data sets as many of the climate alarmists, people like Bjorn Lomborg, Michael Shellenberger, Marian Tupy, and Matt Ridley have been speaking to the idea that climate change is real, it's just not the apocalyptic threat that we've been told it is.

Top 5 of 2021 Day 1: During this Christmas season, we're sharing some of our favorite interviews of the year to allow our team to take time off for the holidays.There's a crisis in San Francisco. Homelessness has skyrocketed and drug use is rampant. Michael Shellenberger moved to San Francisco in 1993 to work on liberal causes, and even spent time working for George Soros' foundation. He advocated the decriminalization of drugs and promoted drug treatment programs. But, Shellenberger says, he began to worry when he saw the number of drug overdose deaths in America rise from 17,000 in 2000 to more than 70,000 by 2017. “Clearly, we are in the midst of a massive drug crisis,” Shellenberger says, “and it felt like nobody was offering a particularly clear explanation of it or offering very good solutions.” Out of frustration over the problems he was seeing in San Francisco and other liberal cities, Shellenberger became determined to diagnose the problems driving the homeless crisis and find solutions. He presents the result of his research and investigation in his new book “San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities.” Shellenberger joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss how the left's “victim” ideology has harmed West Coast cities and what can be done to save those communities from complete ruin.

I belatedly came to Shellenberger in my research on nuclear power’s potential to help cut carbon emissions. But his new book — on the terrible progressive governance in many American cities in recent years — is what gave me the idea to interview him. On homelessness, crime, addiction, and the fast-deterioration of our public spaces, "San Fran-sicko," despite its trolly title, is empirical, tough-minded and, in my view, humane. But make up your own mind, in what was one of the more timely conversations I’ve had this year. (And be sure to check out Shellenberger’s substack — he’s on a major roll this week.)

This is part two of our investigation into the Progress of the Human Race, and we would like to restate our goal here. All the mainstream media ever talk about is how the world's in dire straits, how we're going in an irreversible direction, and how it's all our fault. We explored this narrative in depth in season 4 of the podcast. And we'd like to promote an alternative narrative–one where, in almost every direction you look, you find progress at a rate that, for most of history, would sound like sci-fi. This episode, part two, once again heavily features Marian Tupy, dad's guest on episode 14 of the current podcast season. Marian is a senior fellow at Cato Institute's Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity and co-authored the incredible book “Ten Global Trends Every Smart Person Should Know,” which I'm sure many of you will know.

Questions include: What caused San Francisco's problem with homelessness to worsen over the past decade? (00:47) Why did then-mayor Gavin Newsom's 10-year plan to combat homelessness fail so miserably? (03:00) How do people misinterpret Portugal as a utopia for drug decriminalization/legalization? (05:09) What did he learn from two trips to the Netherlands in 2019 about productively assisting the homeless? (07:19) How big an issue is people profiteering off of a 'homeless industrial complex'? (11:54) What is contingency management intervention, and why is it effective at helping drug addicts?

Of God, Climate, and Countries (00:00) Intro and T-Shirts (03:09) Sean discusses his article in The Radical Secular Journal titled "God Doesn't Matter." The irrelevancy of God. The moral collapse of the "New Atheists." Further defining the Conservative Moral Hierarchy. The significance of calling oneself an "atheist." (20:31) Joe and Sean debunk the right-wing psyop from Peter Boghossian and Michael Shellenberger, labeling progressive politics, including climate change activism, as a "Woke Religion." We break this chart down in detail, and expose the lies and bad faith in the graphic "Woke Religion: A Taxonomy." (59:38) The difficult tension between the need to maintain optimism, and the widespread sense of impending climate doom. The generational anger young people feel at older generations who've benefited from burning carbon, and are now failing to either deliver corrective action, or share the wealth. (01:05:34) The difficulty in getting wealthy countries to pay the bill for climate mitigation for poorer countries. (01:08:40) The economic consequences of the transition away from carbon, including stranded fossil-fuel assets. The coastal real estate problem. We need a strong economy to build out the renewable energy infrastructure, with the wealthy, the largest corporations, and governments on board. (01:17:31) The climate impact on young people, especially young girls. The relationship of climate injustice to the "free market" and the conservative moral hierarchy. (01:24:58) Proposed solutions and who will pay? Living standards can't help but be impacted. Gas prices will be impacted. We have to bite the bullet and go through this transition. Had we acted in the 80s or 90s, it would have been much cheaper and much less difficult. (01:36:50) Summing up the stakes of the situation.

Author Michael Shellenberger knows the radical Left. In high school, he joined the Sandinistas. As an environmentalist, he worked alongside eco-anarchists. In the 1990s, he literally designed policy with George Soros. But the progressives of today scare him. The Left is attacking every single institution. These modern leftists want to destroy our country and everything that makes it wonderful. In this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Shellenberger reveals the Left's anti-civilization agenda. His latest book, "San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities," challenges many of the Left's recent myths and delusions and exposes the Left's tendency to completely destroy cities, which are where leftists happen to be most concentrated. Shellenberger came away from writing "San Fransicko" convinced that everyone should be pro-police. “If you really care about black lives, you should be pro-police,” he tells Glenn. "San Fransicko" has already pissed off progressives. They have responded exactly the way Shellenberger describes in the book: by ignoring the data and attacking him personally and pretending he doesn't know what he's talking about. He does.

The growth of homeless encampments, open air drug markets, and mental illness have all been worsened by the policies meant to address them.
