I Really Hope You Can Read This…

These aren’t basketball scores. 

They’re this week’s weather forecast for Omaha, Des Moines, and St. Louis.

It’s 98 degrees in Baltimore today. 

I’m working from home because the AC at my office is so bad my coworkers are losing their shit.

This is not an isolated incident. 

The water off the coast of Florida is at hot tub temperatures. 

Florida Hot Tub

Over half the country — 180 million people — is under a heat alert right now. 

A mail carrier in Texas dropped dead from it one of many. 

Literally hundreds of people across the country are dying from the heat 25 and counting in Maricopa County, Arizona, alone.

Heat Related Deaths

In light of these deaths, the Labor Department felt compelled to issue its first-ever formal hazard alert for heat.

This, after a study earlier this month attributed 62,000 deaths to a heat wave in Europe last year.

Just imagine what the 2023 total will be... 

Especially since it’s gotten so hot around the Mediterranean that wildfires are now consuming large swaths of Greece, Croatia, Italy, and other countries. 

They’re calling it “fire weather.”

Now, let’s talk about the power grid…

On Wednesday, the largest U.S. grid operator, PJM, issued its own energy emergency alert, saying it probably won’t be able to maintain adequate reserves amid the heat wave.

This is a company that services 65 million people from Washington, D.C., to Illinois — and it simply can’t handle the stress of so many people running their AC. 

On top of that, heat waves beget thunderstorms. 

Over 170,000 people in Michigan lost power when thunderstorms tore through Michigan yesterday.

That’s Michigan a state notorious for its cold weather. 

Residents of Texas, Arizona, and California are at a huge risk right now... 

So much so that ​​California is urging residents to turn their thermostats to 78 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent potential blackouts.


“Please, please do what you can to conserve energy,” pleaded Stuart Reilly, interim general manager of Austin Energy, which serves more than a half-million customers in Texas' capital.

And that risk is only going to grow as the climate gets hotter, the population grows, and more and more countries continue to develop. 

So what do we need?

A sustainable power supply... 

One that’s reliable and preferably doesn’t contribute to the problem the way coal, oil, and gas do.

So I present to you the solution…

newton battery

The "Newton Battery." 

It may look crazy, but this is the solution to our current dilemma. 

More than that, it’s the future of global energy. 

It’s cheap to produce, easy to scale, and consists of nothing more than concrete and steel. 

It doesn’t require lithium, uranium, or any other costly, finite material. 

It doesn’t need the sun to shine or the wind to work. 

And its charge NEVER depletes.

Isn’t that amazing?

No wonder the company behind it has already seen its stock shoot up 50% in a single day.

And yet that stock is still trading for just $3.00 per share, which means there’s still time for investors to profit. 

So if you’re reading this (which thankfully means you still have power), check out the full report from my colleague Jason Williams. 

He’s got all the details on this investment gem

Fight on,
