This is Big! DeSantis Takes Aim At ESG – In The Tank #385

The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Justin Haskins present episode 385 of the In The Tank Podcast.

In an underreported move, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis proposed a comprehensive anti-ESG bill. This bill could be a game-changer in the political landscape in regards to this very important topic. The ITT discusses the bill and its potential implications.

Also, they talk about the recently-undercovered Global Disinformation Index “blacklist” and how it is impacting you the news you are seeing.

Would be greatly helpful to explain what E.S.G. in full words as some reading here will have no idea what it is.

Basically, it’s a Mafia style protection racket. And I say that with due deference to the Mafia who were at least honest about protecting your property from being burned down by them.

ESG is a bureaucratic run racket that will burn down anything that gets in the way of its authoritarian, ideological perception of humanity, including itself.

It is the martyr for humanity, which will sacrifice itself and humanity, to prove an ideological point that theoretical perfection prevails over human experience.

Perhaps best described as thousands of years of human common sense evolution clashing with a few hundred years of science and the Mensa crowd telling us all science is the answer to everything.

No advance on boiling an egg or cooking a steak since we discovered the Sun doesn’t revolve around the World.

Science isn’t an answer, its a tool.

Obviously I didn’t watch the whole podcast but don’t need to. Desantis is right on target. ESG is an extension of Agenda 21 and the goal is One World Government. People need to wake up to the ideology that is slowly being forced upon us and who the people are behind it. It’s a giant, world wide, quango. I still would like to know what these “elites” think they are getting out of it. They are nothing more than useful idiots that have been promised something, I’m guessing a seat at the world governance table but if you watch how this is unfolding they will be cast aside once the goal is accomplished. The other side is they are being blackmailed by the cancel culture into promoting the narrative. How AGW is being treated is a prime example of their methods.

We have been here before. The Roman empire, amongst others, sought to impose a one world government on the lands it surveyed.

It has never worked.

We now have a hegemonic, globalist western world clashing, thankfully in a proxy manner (for the moment) in Ukraine, with more than half the world that doesn’t accept western hegemony.

I suspect that over the coming five to ten years our world will change in entirely unexpected ways, hopefully for the good.

Ideological AGW and NetZero targets are under pressure well before the world hits the wall of 2030 ‘environmental’ objectives.

Despite the unrelenting pressure from green ideology and government virtue signalling, climate sceptics are are making massive inroads into the climate scam because our warnings are meeting the financial reality wall – energy is a tough business governments are ill equipped to deal with.

There is no tipping point, there is an energy wall western civilisation is colliding with right now. It is contrived, our children will not suffer. They will march on regardless because the human instinct for survival ultimately transcends momentary idiosyncrasies.

Sounds like ESG is Government using $$ to destroy $$?

ESG is environmental, social, governance”

The acronym ESG is derived from the first letters of “environmental, social, governance” words.

As intentionally used by climate fools, ESG is not environmental, social or governance.

What is E.S.G? Are we supposed to know this? Answer in less than a line please.

February 16, 2023 7:18 pm

NOBODY knows what ESK is! then story is moot.

Compared to ESG, climate alarmism is a nothing burger, just one tool in the New World Order toolbox. Taken to completion, anti-human ESG would rate every business and individual with a social credit score, controlling which businesses can exist and what, where and how individuals can do, buy, sell, think or say.

In sci-fi terms, we would all be part of the Borg collective, “resistance is futile.”

or in World Economic Forum terms, “You will own nothing and you will be happy.”

Having read these comments, I am now very much in favour of De Santis – Trump wihout the negatives!
