JRE 1798 - Michael Shellenberger (Podcast Summary)

The Joe Rogan Experience - Episode 1798

Michael Shellenberger is an author, president of the non-profit research group Environmental Progress, and a candidate for the governorship of California. His most recent book, "San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities," is available now.

Michael is serious about his gubernatorial candidacy and it shows. Dispensing with too many pleasantries, he is out the gate talking about the disaster of San Francisco. For example, San Francisco had three times drug overdose deaths vs Covid deaths in 2020. There are also illegal supervised drug use centers in the city.

Most of the episode goes over the different aspects of homelessness and policy solutions. In the bottom half of the first hour, they talk about nuclear energy.

Michael and Joe also cover public schooling problems in some detail. Michael wants to increase the number of hours per day our kids are in these indoctrination camps... Dunno about that, Mike. Nap times for older kids? 🙄

Michael has a lot of sensible ideas, but also plenty of 🚩🚩🚩. If you live in California, you're going to want to listen to this. But at least we can all agree that Gavin Newsom sucks.
