Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Ed Hudgins in episode 228 of the In The Tank Podcast. A second, third, and fourth Bernie Sanders campaign staffer has been caught saying radical and extreme things. This extremism is being fueled by the perceived need to take immediate action to save the planet. But, how high is the social cost of carbon dioxide? The In The Tank crew takes a look at a new study that shows we may be benefitting from a gradual warming environment. In the second half, Ed Hudgins joins the show to discuss the potential ramifications of increased automation and artificial intelligence in society and the economy.
