From an e-mail:
Skyrocketing energy prices. The climate crisis. Unraveling financial markets. Wars that just happen to be in places with a lot of oil. These are all just different faces of exactly the same thing. As I’ve said in the past, we’re borrowing money from China to buy oil from the Persian Gulf to burn it in ways that destroy the future of human civilization. And every bit of that has to change.We all know what we have to do. Ask anybody on the street and they’ll tell you. We need to “Repower America” — invest in ourselves, here at home, with clean, economical energy technologies that we know work. And be the global leader as these technologies take off around the world.
The apocalypse, conspiracies and chaos are all invoked in order to raise money to spread more tales of the apocalypse, conspiracies and chaos.
Hint: The e-mail does not mention the Queen of England or mag-lev trains.
