Comment by dumont on Has anyone actually talked to conservatives* about EA? · 2022-05-06T03:11:03.535Z · EA · GW

OP was asking about US conservatives/Republicans, which is a different set of people than libertarians (which is where I'd probably put Tyler). For example, in the 2019 survey libertarians were 8.7% of the respondents, whereas 'right' and 'center right' were a combined 3.4%. (Note that US respondents were roughly 40%, so a one-to-one comparison can't be made without further analysis.)

I wrote a series of posts on the feasibility of an all-solar grid last year, here (it links to two prior posts).

Is there a non-FB version of these posts?

Bryan Caplan, at least, has three kids.

(He has four kids now.)
