Apr 10, 2022 Governor Walz wants Minnesota to be 100% carbon-free by the year 2040. It doesn't matter how many solar and wind farms you build, the technology is just not there to sustain our energy supply. Xcel Energy is claiming that it will close it's coal-fired power plant in Becker by 2030, and for the activists, that's still not good enough. Many cities have built in an 80% reduction by 2050 into their Climate Action Plans... but these cities need to do better. Buildings need to be retrofitted, alternative energy needs to be implemented, and you need to comply.

All over the place, we see that the schools are turning their students into activists, and then sending them to their city councils to get them on board to go net zero. Why are council members listening to high school students as their science "experts"? That's ridiculous! The very essence of the word "student", is that they are still studying. Of course climate change is based in racial justice too. Despite the impending failure this kind of legislation is, Governor Walz is not ready to give up the ship.

Oh, and it's history lesson week... uff da. Although, it also takes a turn for a lively discussion on the current push to switch over to a digital currency. This isn't the first time we've changed our currency either.

Also, YouTube removed one of our podcast episodes. You'll have to listen to find out which one... and it's hilarious. Good news, you can still find it here.
