Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 229 of the In The Tank Podcast. The Iowa Caucus debacle continues to roll on and the news about the CoronaVirus is still pouring in. The In The Tank crew weighs in on both topics. In the later half of the podcast, they discuss a new report from the Heartland Institute titled “Protecting the Environment from the Green New Deal.” Proponents of plans like the Green New Deal often fail to take into account the massive environmental implications of transitioning to Wind and Solar energy production.
