January 10, 2020

Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 225 of the In The Tank Podcast.

Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 225 of the In The Tank Podcast. One Child Nation, a documentary now available on Amazon, provides a look into the absolutely horrible outcomes resulting from China’s One-Child policy. The crew discusses the documentary and how the policy was enacted in the environment of overpopulation alarmism. What does this history reveal about the current alarmism surrounding climate change? They talk about how viewing policy through the eyes of “the collective” can end with truly disastrous consequences.
