Have you heard? The world is about to end! No…it isn’t.  Throughout history, people predicted the end of humanity.

Recently, 60 Minutes featured doomsayer Paul Ehrlich. They treated him like an expert, even though his dire prophecies have repeatedly been proven utterly wrong.

Instead of interviewing people like Ehrlich, 60 minutes should talk to Marian Tupy, the creator of humanprogress.org. “If you sell the apocalypse, people feel like you are deep and that you care,” Tupy tells me. “But if you are selling rational optimism….”

Rational optimism is right. Scaremongers like 60 Minutes are wrong.

After 40+ years of reporting, I now understand the importance of limited government and personal freedom.

Libertarian journalist John Stossel created Stossel TV to explain liberty and free markets to young people. Prior to Stossel TV he hosted a show on Fox Business and co-anchored ABC’s primetime newsmagazine show, 20/20.

Stossel’s economic programs have been adapted into teaching kits by a non-profit organization, “Stossel in the Classroom.” High school teachers in American public schools now use the videos to help educate their students on economics and economic freedom. They are seen by more than 12 million students every year.

Stossel has received 19 Emmy Awards and has been honored five times for excellence in consumer reporting by the National Press Club. Other honors include the George Polk Award for Outstanding Local Reporting and the George Foster Peabody Award.

Stossel: Even Greenpeace Says “Most Plastic Simply Cannot Be Recycled.”

Published on

From Stossel TV

For decades we’ve been told recycling helps the Earth. It really doesn’t.

Recycling is a “sacrament of the green religion,” says Science Writer John Tierney. He once debunked recycling claims in an infamous New York Times column “Recycling is Garbage.”

“It’s even more true today,” Tierney tells me. Greenpeace now says plastic recycling is a “dead-end street.” Often it’s also a costly scam.

Nearly 3 years in, the data has spoken. John Stossel on the effectiveness of Covid lockdowns

From Stossel TV

After 3 years of Covid, what lessons can we learn? Did lockdowns work? What about closing schools? What countries did best?

It turns out that America’s lockdowns did NOT work. Even though the media praised New York governor Andrew Cuomo for an “amazing job,” accounting for age, his state ended up with more deaths than “irresponsible” Florida. Meanwhile, some countries, like Australia, imposed brutal lockdowns. My producer crunched the numbers at MaximumTruth.Substack.com and found that lockdowns DID save some lives. But they weren’t worth it. This video explains why.

***** YouTube age-restricted the original video I posted, which vastly reduces the number of people who will see it. I have decided to edit out the parts that may have caused the restriction: a clip showing Australian Police choking a woman for not wearing a mask, Chinese authorities dragging a man out of his home, and protestors clashing with police *****
