At the blink of an eye, a governor who was elected to office promoting libertarian conservative ideals, begins his second term in office supporting an extreme socialist liberal agenda which would lock up massive chunks of Alaska to the “Green Revolution.”

From the outset, there is a massive question whether the governor has the authority to promote the sequestration of Alaska lands held in the “commons.”

But, apart from that lets explore what ESG means. The term ESG is derived from three words of serious implications – Environmental, Social, Governance.

Regarding Environmental:

This is a project which supports the promotion of receiving revenue based on carbon credits.

This is twofold:

The idea which promotes all business and corporations being evaluated based on their carbon footprint. Upon on this evaluation, these business entities would be charged to obtain carbon offset credits to account for a less than stellar carbon rating. If these businesses refused to pay carbon offset credits, they would have an extremely difficult time obtaining investment capital to expand their business as the banking industry is directly tied into these regulatory practices.

Think, for one moment if China or India would participate in regulating and taxing their respective industries? These two countries account for the bulk of carbon emissions in the world environment. What this promotion will actually do is tax many of the industries of the world economy to pay more for goods and services while doing nothing to countries who refuse to participate, making their goods and services more affordable.  An excellent promotion of China!

Government entities such as the State of Alaska, if the governor gets his way, could join this carbon enterprise by agreeing to completely set aside land which would, in effect, be locked completely up with even more regulations than National Interest Lands for a minimum of 100 years.

If Alaska were to “lock up” substantial amounts of state land, Governor Dunleavy argues that the state can reap vast amounts of money from businesses and corporations which are forced to purchase carbon offset credits. Never mind that if a business is charged this “unicorn revenue” they will merely pass the cost on to the consumer. They will not pay this tax. Every citizen will, through product inflation. Alaska would, in effect, be taxing all the citizens of the participating world with carbon offset credits. Keep in mind, the more land we lock up, the more tax revenue we receive. The governor, in his State of the State address spoke of BILLIONS of dollars we could be receiving each year, simply by placing Alaska “OFF LIMITS” to the human infestation.

Regarding Social:

Here is where regulation really hits the road in social engineering. Not only will business be evaluated regarding their “carbon footprint” but they will be evaluated based on their social scoring on “equity.” Businesses will be forced to obtain an equity rating, not based on merit, but based on a quota of diversity within their institutions. Without this “equity rating” businesses and corporations will be scored and forced to pay a larger carbon offset tax.

Regarding Governance:

It is preposterous to consider the ultimate outcome is governance on a global scale. This is the dissolution of the free market as we know it, the dismantling of national sovereignty and a direct assault on individual liberty.

And, Governor Dunleavy is brash enough to promote ESG in his first State of the State address to our Legislature.

We the People of Alaska can no longer sit by and avoid direct involved in this overt action. It is time to get informed and actively engaged.

For those of you who wish to read more on this essential doctrine the governor is attempting to promote, please take time and read more here.

OPINION: Gov. Dunleavy aims to entangle Alaska in a ‘socialist liberal’ carbon tax scheme

Michael Chambers

He also serves as a facilitator for Alaska Covid Alliance which fights for early treatment of Covid and medical freedoms for all Alaskans.


  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Thank you for writing on this topic Mr. Chambers! Europe has been suffering the catastrophe of attempting to “go green” and many of us are aware of the fact that going “green” is not going to work in Alaska where the sun does not shine anymore and the only wind we seem to be getting are the monster wind storms that would tear apart any windmills. The Alaska Natives have been pumped full of brain-fogging chemicals and are going to push the globalist agenda thinking that the globalists care for them, when in fact, the American natives and Alaska Natives have the highest rates of fatality due to their “healthcare” and the jabs that many of them have taken. Those of us who care about the life and well-being of Alaska absolutely need to get involved! Dunleavy knows what is going on and he has chosen to work for the globalists.

  • Lobo says:

    When the pig finds his way out of the pen, he begins to show who he actually is.

  • Aunt Sally says:

    It almost makes one wonder about those “Prometheus” rumors from back in the day…

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Could those of you that tried to convince me that Dunleavy was worthy of my vote the second time because he would “do better in his second term” please start talking and showing me ! Is his flatulent gas production what you meant?

  • Steve P Peterson says:

    Remember when he called himself “conservative” and many of us actually believed It?
    This is an obvious acquiescence to the luny left and we cannot allow him to go through with this. If he wants Alaska to be wealthy, we need to exploit our resources, not lock them up.
    Oh, for a real conservative who could have challenged this duplicitous phony!

  • Kgak100 says:

    Found lots of data on carbon credits from these folks heard it on 650 keni today

  • Shelia says:

    This whole thing reminds me of the left calling everything “racist.” Now we have conservatives calling everything “socialist: and “communist.” Meanwhile Alaska is being screwed by the Feds so the state cannot have any income by taking away mines and oil and gas projects. And here is Governor Dunleavy trying to find revenue for the state budget by making money the only way this woke culture will allow. But no, Alaskans have to call it all “loony” and “socialist. ” So we will see instead of possible solutions, more ideological wars that will leave Alaska naked and powerless. Of course, those people will blame the governor instead of themselves for not trying new solutions. God help us all!

    • Steve P Peterson says:

      If you tie up the land so people can’t use it, you might be a socialist.
      The state needs to spend less money, too bad he caved to the left when he actually tried to do this, but apparently his heart wasn’t in it.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    I just ran across this CNN video from 2014 where an Emmonak, AK resident was talking about how they ran out of fuel oil and were having to heat with wood and had to stay up all night to keep the fire going. What is going to happen after the Alaska Natives keep pushing for Biden’s green energy and they don’t have fuel oil OR wood? People need to help these guys understand the danger that they are in and that they are putting ALL OF US in!

    • Lucinda says:

      Your concern has nothing to do with dunleavys stupid idea.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Perhaps you can expand more on your comment to clarify your position Lucinda. I think that my concern has everything to do with the carbon credit scheme…which is not Dunleavy’s idea, but rather the globalists’ idea.

  • AK907 says:

    It becomes more and more clear as time passes why the Dunleavy Administration has been silent about the proven dangers of the Covid Vax that continue to be exposed daily !

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Dunleavy and Dr. Z, along with some notable other people, are responsible for many vax injuries and deaths here in Alaska. Thank you for sharing this website. It is data-packed and shares a lot of news!

  • FallenRepublic says:

    Results of Stolen Elections. Get Rid of Dominion machines, Mail In Voting and Rank Choice voting. The treason, This is evil.

  • Lucinda says:

    The whole carbon credit scheme does not sit well with this liberal conservationist. The author’s assessment is ludicrous. He’s afraid of his shadow.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Once again I ask: why is Biden shutting down mining and gas/oil exploration/production in the 48 contingent states; but allowing it here in Alaska? Here’s another instance of Biden shutting down mining:
    Funny that we have Dunleavy pushing for net zero while the Biden administration is allowing gas/oil/mineral/metal exploration/production here in Alaska. The globalists want what is in the Alaskan grounds and Dunleavy has to makes sure that it is available to them imho.

  • Clark says:

    I enjoy how you guys love to say anything democratically elected officials do that benefits our whole society is a win for China! Oil prices were low, blame it on Biden, its China! Gas prices are higher, omg Biden wont produce any oil its for China! My sister says Soros wants to kill 90% of Americans and harvest our organs for China! Hunter got a good job in Ukraine…must be Chinas fault! If we tax our companies, China wins…if we dont produce our goods here, china wins, if we DO produce our goods here, China wins cuz we pay our workers too much! If we have paid vacations China wins cuz they work harder than us….if we don’t ban abortions China wins cuz they’ll overrun us with population. Dont you guys ever get sick of puking up this bile?

  • Charlotte says:

    Yes, Dunleavy was the consummate conservative as he asked for $5 donations for his re-election. Now he’s won and here he goes again, pushing losing and harmful agendas of the left. He has to be getting “green” rewards for his cooperation. He surely doesn’t believe this nonsense, does he?

    • DaveMaxwell says:

      The Biblical way of understanding a person is “you will know them by their fruit “ !!

  • Sterling Crone says:

    How many paid attention to our state gas co Enstar being put up for sale by our GLOBALIST leaders? can nobody else extrapolate where this is going?

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      I had not heard about Enstar being sold. Wow. Will research this! Thank you for sharing this.

    • Robert says:

      Enstar has been owned by a Canadian company since 2012, AltaGas. In December 2022 the sale to another Canadian company was approved, TriSummit. Unsure what I am supposed to extrapolate.

  • Dave says:

    Where are the folks now that were working to recall Governor Dunleavy 3 years ago?

  • George says:

    ESG must be resisted on all fronts. It’s the tool that corporations and governments will use to enslave humanity.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Agreed! So, I think that Dunleavy should be impeached. Would the Lt. Gov. do the job that she swore to do? Maybe she should be the acting governor!

  • Jon and Ruth Ewig says:

    Before considering spending state money or “buying into” the globalist mindset of carbon credits, or regulating the “imagined climate crises,” please consider the NOAA article: “Why did Earth’s surface temperature stop rising in the past decade?” Quote: “Since the turn of the century [2000 A.D.], however, the change in Earth’s global mean surface temperature has been close to zero.” So then, Where is the crisis?

    • Lucinda says:

      Jon and Ruth, you left out some important information from that article. The authors also said: “natural variability may cause the rate of warming to change from one decade to the next, but global warming is still underway.” And: “Yet despite the halt in acceleration, each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850.” And: “The long-term trend—change over the course of a century or more—is what defines “global warming,” not the change from year to year or even decade to decade. “

  • Ruth Ewig says:

    Those of us who know God is our Creator and know that God created the ocean surface temperatures to be self-regulating understand we have nothing to fear. The proof is above in the Just study our Creation and quit trying to play god by inventing solutions to nonexistent problems. If you are afraid of global warming, you are following a false worldview, one which does not offer any hope….

    • Lucinda says:

      OMG. Are there others that think like you?

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Yes, I believe just as Ruth does. This earth that our Heavenly Father Yahweh created was a self-healing earth. When a system is out of balance, it corrected itself. Along came geoengineering and men who believe that to he who controls the weather will control the world. Well, there is going to come a time when the Creator of All Creation is going to put a stop to this nonsense of those men who are “controllers of weather” and it is going to be a glorious day for all of humanity that loves the world that our Heavenly Father has created.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Right here

  • Lucinda says:

    Friend of Humanity

    You said: “On the grounds that he is misrepresenting himself to the party that he “represents.” I know you are passionate in your beliefs, but do some research before you posit an action. Your claim is NOT grounds for impeachment.
