Title: Breaking Down Biden's Climate Bill - LIVE Climate Change Roundtable
Description: Immediately after Senate passage, the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” was praised in the corporate media and among activists on the left as being the most-significant climate action the U.S. government in our history. But just like the bill won't improve our runaway inflation rate, it will also do absolutely nothing to improve our weather or decrease the global temperature by the end of the century. After about $400 billion more in taxpayer subsidies for green energy, the temperature might decrease by between about three-hundredths (0.028F) of a degree and nine-ten thousandths (0.0009F) of a degree. Maybe. On this edition of Climate Change Roundtable, The Heartland Institute's H. Sterling Burnett, Linnea Lueken, and Steve Milloy join Host Jim Lakely to discuss the "climate fighting" aspects of the latest Washington boondoggle spending bill. Just how bad is it?
