Welcome to another episode of Off the Cuff!

Today we’ve got a real treat for you. We’re diving into the incredibly important, and often misunderstood, subject of energy with everyone’s favorite green chicken, Doomberg.

Now, you all know how I feel about the concept of energy ignorance, how our societal conversation is often shaped by a lack of understanding of what energy actually does for us. Energy is not just another commodity, it’s THE master resource. Without it, every other system—be it healthcare, finance, food, you name it—grinds to a halt.



Doomberg is deeply steeped in this topic and has thought long and hard about the realities, the physics, and yes, the politics of energy. If you haven’t already read his trenchant pieces on the state of our world, particularly when it comes to energy policy, then you’re in for an intellectual feast today.

We’re going to get into the specifics of what green energy policies mean, especially when they’re being pushed without a clear understanding of the technical challenges involved. We’ll talk about the limits of renewable energy, the crucial role of grid reliability, and how our push for ‘green’ might actually be risking our very standard of living. And believe me, this conversation is going to challenge some popular narratives.

So strap in folks, because this is a topic that affects us all, and it’s one we can’t afford to get wrong.
