The Last Optimist: The Malthusian Invective

The observation that the world is not mining (nor planning to mine) enough minerals to build the scale of solar/wind/battery hardware needed for the goals of Energy Transitionists has inspired the response that such limits are only espoused by modern Malthusians. The claim is that the world has plenty of minerals and that innovation will solve the problem. This is both true and irrelevant. About The Last Optimist The roaring 2020s are upon us and the Manhattan Institute’s senior fellow Mark P. Mills is here to make sense of it. In The Last Optimist, Mills applies his knowledge as an author, businessman, and physicist to explore issues of the day and host insightful conversations with leading thinkers and innovators.
