A Three-University Conspiracy? (Or eight billion supporting fossil fuels)

by Robert Bradley Jr. at wattsupwiththat.com

This conspiracy theorist needs to check his simplistic, authoritarian, emotional views. Eight billion consumers desiring the most affordable, reliable, plentiful energies is the reason why fossil fuels are winning. The real enemy in terms of human betterment is the climate industrial complex, the industrial wind developers, the solar cronies, and EV/battery elites. Mid-course correction needed, Mr. Carlevale.”

Edmund Carlevale, self-described as Transdisciplinary Communications, MIT whistleblower, City-based Sustainability Strategies, with a following of 25,000 on social media, has a very simple explanation of the crisis behind the climate crisis. He offers a crude theory behind “the failed strategies of marching in the streets to end fossil fuels, the endless horror stories of the environmental horrors in our future, and the unending technical debunking of scams like #carboncapture.” It is a conspiracy theory that mangles cause-and-effect. Here it is:

This is why emissions are skyrocketing and Big Oil stocks are booming.

The culprit of the global program is embedded in “3 corrupt U.S. universities producing propaganda written by the global oil cartel and published under the brand of prestigious U.S. universities, which give politicians the cover they need to continue funding business as usual.”


This argument is the basis of the report I am submitting to the U.S. Department of Justice, requesting an investigation into the #fossilfuelfunding given to #MIT#Stanford, and #Columbia University over the past 20 years.

The report examines 5 pieces of evidence published by these three institutions and their key players:

1. “Big Oil vs. the World, Part Three: Delay” (the PBS edit, 2022).
2. “How to get investors to say “Yes!” to CCS” (Ernest Moniz, Sally Benson, et al, Feb. 23, 2023).
3. “Behind All the Talk, This Is What Big Oil Is Actually Doing” (Jason Bordoff, New York Times op-ed, August 7, 2023).
4. “The Future of Coal” (Ernest Moniz, John Deutch, et al., MIT Energy Initiative, started 2004-published 2007).
5. “The Future of Natural Gas” (Ernest Moniz et al., MIT Energy Initiative, 2011).

Unlike doctors who face lawsuits for malpractice and lawyers who can be disbarred, or lobbyists who must register as such, academics have no accountability for anything produced outside the peer-review process. Yet the institution’s reputation is automatically applied to anything so published.

It is this system which the global oil cartel has rigged to serve its interests, and it is this system, imho, which is presently destroying Earth….
