Heating our houses and places of business, for example, represents our biggest use of fossil fuels. Yet in Urbana Illinois, Vancouver Canada, and across Germany they're building homes that are so efficient they can be… wait for it… heated with a single hairdryer. A new and better world is possible, if we can only overcome the money of the fossil fuel industry, the corruption of a political party, and stop squandering the little remaining time we have before, if we don't act, climate disasters overwhelm civilization.

Today I'll be chatting with Geoff Dembicki, author of The Petroleum Papers, Inside the Far-Right Conspiracy to Cover Up Climate Change. In this book, Geoff talks about how he dove into oil industry documents to understand the disinformation campaigns that many of the largest oil companies organized around their industry and climate change. This book was named a Washington Post Best Book of the Year in 2022. This is all very timely as a new study was just released this month in Science showing that Exxon scientists predicted global warming as the company cast doubts. Check out the Petroleum Papers here.

Saudi Arabia is a country that is known for its rich culture and history, as well as its modern developments and economic prosperity. But while the country has made economic and social progress in recent decades, it's also important to recognize that every country has its own set of issues and challenges. I've started launching episodes about my visit to Saudi Arabia, and in the first one that came out on Tuesday, it may have sounded like there's nothing bad about this country. And even though I loved my visit and met some of the friendliest people I've ever met, there are still challenges. In this episode, I will share what I think is both good and bad about this country. THE GOOD ABOUT SAUDI ARABIA Let's dive in and start with some of the things that are good about Saudi Arabia: GOOD: Culture and history Saudi Arabia is home to a number of historical and cultural sites that are of great importance to the country and the region. The city of Mecca is the holiest site in Islam and the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad. It is also home to the Kaaba, a sacred stone building that is the focus of the annual hajj pilgrimage. Medina, another city in Saudi Arabia, is also considered a holy city and is the burial place of the Prophet Muhammad. These cities are of great significance to Muslims around the world and are a source of pride for the country. GOOD: Economy Saudi Arabia is a major player in the global economy, with a GDP of over $800 billion. The country is rich in natural resources, particularly oil, which accounts for a significant portion of its wealth. The government has also invested heavily in modernizing and diversifying the economy, with initiatives aimed at boosting tourism, technology, and other sectors. As a result, Saudi Arabia has a high standard of living and a strong infrastructure. GOOD: Education Education is a priority in Saudi Arabia, with the government investing heavily in the education sector. The country has a number of top-ranked universities, including King Abdullah University of Science and Technology and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, which are known for their research and innovation. The government also provides free education to all citizens, from primary school through to university. GOOD: Healthcare Saudi Arabia has a well-developed healthcare system, with a number of hospitals and clinics located throughout the country. The government invests heavily in the healthcare sector, providing free medical care to all citizens. The country is also home to a number of renowned medical facilities, such as the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre, which is known for its advanced medical technology and expertise. GOOD: Infrastructure Saudi Arabia has a modern infrastructure, with a well-developed transportation system and a number of major cities connected by highways and airports. The country has also invested heavily in its telecommunications infrastructure, with high levels of Internet and mobile phone penetration. These investments have contributed to the country's economic development and have made it easier for people to live, work, and travel within the country. GOOD: Natural beauty Despite its desert climate, Saudi Arabia is home to a number of beautiful natural landscapes. The country has a number of parks and nature reserves, including the Asir National Park, which is home to a number of endangered species. The country's coastlines, including the Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf, are also popular destinations for tourists and offer a range of activities such as diving, fishing, and water sports. GOOD: Modern developments In recent years, Saudi Arabia has undergone a number of modern developments, including the construction of new cities, such as King Abdullah Economic City and NEOM, which are designed to be centres of innovation and economic growth. The country has also invested heavily in its tourism sector, with initiatives aimed at promoting the country as a destination for both religious and recreational tourism. THE BAD ABOUT SAUDI ARABIA There are also a number of issues that have been the subject of criticism and concern. Let's have a look at some of the things that might not be good about Saudi Arabia. BAD: Treatment of women One issue that has received significant attention is the treatment of women in Saudi Arabia. The country has a strict system of gender segregation, and women are subject to a number of legal restrictions and limitations on their freedom of movement and expression. For example, women in Saudi Arabia are required to have a male guardian who has the authority to make decisions on their behalf and control their movements.  However, in August 2020, the Saudi Arabian government announced that they would be revoking the laws that required women to have a male guardian's permission to travel, marry, or even leave prison. Additionally, the law that required women to wear an abaya (a loose-fitting black cloak) in public was also repealed. These changes were part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's Vision 2030 plan to modernise and liberalize the country. However, these laws have not yet been fully implemented, and some restrictions on women's freedom of movement and other rights continue to exist. BAD: Lack of political freedoms Another issue that has been the subject of criticism is the lack of political freedom in Saudi Arabia. The country is an absolute monarchy, and political parties are not allowed. There is also no independent judiciary, and human rights groups have reported cases of arbitrary detention, torture, and other human rights abuses by the authorities. BAD: Treatment of migrant workers There have also been concerns about the treatment of migrant workers in Saudi Arabia. Many migrant workers, particularly those from South and Southeast Asia, work in low-paying, hazardous jobs and are subject to abuse and exploitation by their employers. Migrant workers are also often denied access to basic rights and protections, such as the right to form unions or to seek legal recourse for workplace abuses. BAD: Treatment of minority groups Human rights groups have also raised concerns about the treatment of minority groups in Saudi Arabia, including the Shi'a minority in the Eastern Province and the Bidun, a stateless minority group. These groups have faced discrimination and marginalization and have been denied access to education and employment opportunities. BAD: Lack of freedom of expression Another issue that has been a source of concern is the lack of freedom of expression in Saudi Arabia. The government tightly controls the media and censors the internet, and individuals who express dissenting views or criticize the government can face arrest and imprisonment. BAD: Environmental concerns There have also been concerns about the environmental impact of Saudi Arabia's economic development. The country is a major producer of oil, and the extraction and refining of oil has contributed to environmental degradation, including air and water pollution. Additionally, the country's rapid population growth and urbanization have put a strain on natural resources, such as water, and have contributed to environmental problems such as desertification. BAD: Tense relationship with other countries It is also worth noting that Saudi Arabia has a complex and often tense relationship with other countries in the region. The country has been involved in a number of conflicts and disputes, including the ongoing conflict in Yemen, and has been accused of supporting extremist groups and interfering in the internal affairs of other countries. Conclusion Overall, while Saudi Arabia has made significant progress in recent decades, and they have big things happening in their 2030 plan that I talked about in the episode a few days ago. Saudi Arabia is a country with a rich culture and history, a strong economy, and a well-developed infrastructure. It is home to a number of historical and cultural sites, top-ranked universities, and renowned medical facilities. The country is also home to a number of beautiful natural landscapes. But there are still a number of issues that have been the subject of criticism and concern. Treatment of women, lack of political freedoms, treatment of migrant workers and minority groups, and lack of freedom of expression. Its modern developments and initiatives to boost tourism have helped I feel it's important for Saudi Arabia to address the problematic issues and work towards a more just and equitable society if they really want to make it a dynamic and attractive place to live and visit. These are my own opinions, based on my experiences visiting the country and the research I've done. You might disagree – and if you do, please let me know.

Today's guest is Sarah Richardson, CEO and co-founder of MicroByre, which is domesticating novel bacteria and using biology to produce chemicals that can supplant petrochemical production methods.Only a small portion of a barrel of oil is responsible for its petrochemical outputs. Most of a barrel is what you'd expect: fuel that's converted to gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, etc. But that small portion of petrochemical feedstocks is really valuable; by some estimates, it makes up to a quarter or more of the value of a barrel of oil. If we want to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels to slow down climate change, one of the ways to do that is to lessen the value of a barrel of oil.MicroByre does this by looking to the natural world. There are microbes and bacteria all around us, eating things, producing things, and living in all sorts of environments, from the highest mountains to the deepest sea vents. There may be a trillion or more bacterial species out there, with 99.99% of them undiscovered by humans. And yet when it comes to domesticating microbes, the technology world has turned almost exclusively to yeast and E. coli.We typically think of microbes as something to which you feed sugar and it outputs alcohol. That's fermentation and it's how we make sourdough bread, beer, kombucha, kimchee, etc. But on this show, we've covered other input/output combinations such as Zero Acre Farms which uses bacteria to produce cooking oils. So what combinations of bacteria, feed, and environment can produce valuable chemicals? And can these bacteria be genetically modified to do this even more efficiently?These are the things that MicroByre is focused on. When we first started asking people about Sarah, more than one person told us that she was among the most intelligent people they'd ever met. Someone even said that they thought she'd win a Nobel Prize someday. After listening to her climate journey with bacteria, you'll quickly realize why she's highly regarded. We're thrilled to be investors in MicroByre at MCJ and hope you enjoy this conversation. In this episode, we cover: [3:10] Sarah's background and early lab experience [7:15] Her cross-disciplinary work at Johns Hopkins and the Department of Energy [16:55] Differences between biology and chemistry in trying to manipulate and grow organisms[21:33] An overview of biotechnology vs. industrial biotechnology [22:37] Petroleum's role in chemical production [24:40] Sarah's motivation for working on climate [27:40] An overview of MicroByre [31:49] The role of genetic modification in MicroByre's solution [37:12] MicroByre's commercial business model [40:07] The company's flexible approach to working with clients and managing uncertainty [43:56] Some of the chemical compounds MicroByre is solving for[47:22] The company's four client categories [55:22] The types of talent working at MicroByre [1:00:05] Funding to date and plans moving forwardGet connected: Cody SimmsSarah Richardson / MicroByreMCJ Podcast / Collective*You can also reach us via email at info@mcjcollective.com, where we encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded on November 4, 2022.

In today's episode we discuss King Hubbert the technocrat and scientist with a flawed methodology and Malthusian worldview. We also go over a brief history of the Rockefeller starting with John D. Rockefeller's rapist snake oil salesman father up to the offspring that would dominate the world oil market during the Cold War years. The majority of the episode we discuss a theory outside of the conventional western geological orthodoxy that challenges the very notion that petroleum is dinosaur goo. Oh yeah, we're talking abiotic oil theory my friends. Abiotic oil would come out of the Soviet Union during the Cold War when Stalin realized that being dependent on the west for oil could be a possible death sentence for Russia so he would create a project to study all the various aspects of oil in a move that some people have compared to the Manhattan Project in scope. This is an interesting one and if the theory of Abiotic Oil is true it would change the way we think about geology and geopolitics at a fundamental level. I personally find the theory of Abiotic Oil persuasive, but I am by no means an expert in geology so take what I say with a grain of salt and enjoy this slippery ride.Sources:Myths, Lies and Oil Wars by F William EngdahlEndless Oil?

The Festival's Neil Wilson sits down with Geoff Dembicki, an investigative climate change reporter to discuss his acclaimed book, The Petroleum Papers: Inside the Far-Right Conspiracy to Cover Up Climate Change, published in Partnership with the David Suzuki Institute. Burning fossil fuels will cause catastrophic global warming: this is what top American oil executives were told by scientists in 1959. But they ignored that warning. Instead, they developed one of the biggest, most polluting oil sources in the world—the oil sands in Alberta, Canada. In The Petroleum Papers, Dembicki draws from confidential oil industry documents to uncover for the first time how companies like Exxon, Koch Industries, and Shell built a global right-wing echo chamber to protect oil sands profits—a misinformation campaign that continues to this day. He also tells the high-stakes stories of people fighting back: a Seattle lawyer who brought down Big Tobacco and is now going after Big Oil, a Filipina activist whose family drowned in a climate disaster, and a former Exxon engineer pushed out for asking hard questions. With experts now warning we have less than a decade to get global emissions under control, The Petroleum Papers provides a step-by-step account of how we got to this precipice—and the politicians and companies who deserve our blame.

Bei “Auf den Tag genau” schauen wir oftmals auf Anfänge von Entwicklungen, deren Konsequenzen heute zu unseren größten Problemen gehören. Nehmen wir die Abhängigkeit der Welt vom Erdöl. Der Publizist und Journalist Edgar Stern-Rubarth war unterwegs in der Nähe von Mossul und besichtigte erste Erdöl-Förderanlagen und -Raffinerien und gibt uns einen Einblick in die aus heutiger Sicht technisch primitiven Verfahren. Hinter dem Beobachteten steckten natürlich schon damals politisch und wirtschaftlich strategisch agierende Konsortien, die die Erdölförderung für sich sichern wollten. In Fall von Mossul wohl die “Turkish oil company”, die 1912 gegründet wurde, und wesentlich imperial deutsche und englische Interessen vertrat. Die größten Anteilseigner waren die “Deutsche Bank” und die “Anglo Saxon oil company”. Aus ihr ging 1925 die “Iraq oil company” hervor.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Show (10/19/2022) 3:05pm- At a White House press conference on Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced the release of an additional 15 million barrels of oil from the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). Biden denied that the new SPR release is politically motivated as we approach November 8th midterms. During the nearly 15-minute address, the President continually abdicated responsibility for increased gas prices.   3:20pm- The Wall Street Journal's Editorial Board documented how “the price of heating fuel will soar this winter, thanks to climate policies.”    3:30pm- In March of 2020, former President Donald Trump advocated on behalf of filling America's Strategic Petroleum Reserves (SPR) while oil prices were low. However, Democrats opposed the measure—calling it a bailout for big oil. On Wednesday, when asked about Democrats' 2020 opposition, as the Biden administration relies upon reserves accumulated under Trump to temporarily lower gas prices, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre dismissed criticisms by arguing, “it was a different time then.”    3:40pm- Dr. EJ Antoni—Research Fellow for Regional Economics in the Center for Data Analysis at The Heritage Foundation—joins the show to talk about his recent New York Post editorial, “Average American is Losing $34k and Everything Else on Biden's Watch.”   4:05pm- According to reports from Fox News, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may issue guidance to add the COVID-19 vaccines to the childhood immunization schedule, which could potentially result in vaccination being required in order to attend school. Johns Hopkins Professor Dr. Marty Makary said, if the guidance is ultimately issued by the CDC, it would be despite no clinical data supporting vaccination against COVID-19 for young children being made available to the public.    4:15pm- According to the Daily Mail, when asked about COVID-19 boosters, Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel stated: “If you're a 25-year-old, do you need an annual booster every year if you're healthy? You might want to… but I think it's going to be similar to flu, where it's going to be people at high-risk, people above 50 years of age, people with comorbidities, people with cancer and other conditions, people with transplants.”   4:30pm- Rich somehow manages to break his studio microphone mid-segment…   4:50pm- While appearing on MCNBC's Morning Joe, Democrat candidate for Georgia Governor Stacey Abrams claimed that expanding abortion access is a way to potentially fix inflationary worries, stating: “having children is why you're worried” about a rise in prices.    5:05pm- Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre if the Biden Administration's attempt to put the oil industry out of business has had an impact on energy availability.   5:10pm- Chess Grandmaster Hans Niemann has been accused of cheating—with some suspecting he has been using a “wireless device” that he “inserted into his rectum.” At the US Chess Championships, Niemann underwent a metal detector sweep. Niemann has admitted to cheating in the past.    5:40pm- Daniel Turner—Founder & Executive Director of Power the Future—joins the show to discuss the Biden Administration's decision to release an additional 15 million barrels of oil from the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). Turner explains, this is a “desperate election-time band-aid.”    6:05pm- Harvard University's endowment has shrunk by $2.3 billion (a 1.8% negative return)—this comes after the school announced it would discontinue investments within the fossil fuel industry. According to reporting from the Daily Wire, in a letter, Harvard Management Company CEO N.P. Narvekar wrote, Harvard's abandonment of new fossil fuel investments “weighed upon performance.” Similarly, BlackRock has seen its stock downgraded over its embrace of “environmental, social, and governance movement” investing strategies.    6:40pm- The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is denying they had anything to do with a series of postings warning of potential Bigfoot encounters in state parks. In a statement, the department emphasized, “Bigfoot is not real.”    6:55pm- Who Won Social Media? + Zeoli's Final Thought ReplyForward
