Liberal magazine The Nation recently published an article calling Bill Gates the biggest climate hypocrite out there. At Climate Realism, we agree. While we don't share The Nation's fear of an existential climate crisis, Bill Gates does, and his actions do not support his words.

USA Today and other media outlets are sounding the alarm today about a new alarmist paper claiming global warming is causing a lengthier pollen season, making allergies worse. In reality, a longer pollen season is merely a reflection – and a result – of a longer and more productive growing season for plant life. While more plant life may bring a negative side effect for people with allergies, it is silly to claim that more plant life is an overall negative development. Instead, more plant life is a clear benefit – not harm – of climate change.

Forbes ran an article titled "You Must Not ‘Do Your Own Research’ When It Comes To Science." They claim that you lack the expertise to sift between truth and lies, so you shouldn't do any research and trust what the experts say. We disagree. Do your own research and make up your own mind. Forbes article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2020/07/30/you-must-not-do-your-own-research-when-it-comes-to-science/?sh=52b4baf9535e

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Samantha Fillmore are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 280 of the In The Tank Podcast. It seems lately like people who say they are conservative are starting to stray on issues that used to be basic – minimum wage, stimulus payments, and the national debt to name a few. The ITT crew explores this idea, discuss what has caused this, and talks about the path to normalcy (if there is one). Also, they discuss a proposal for the Biden administration to create a “Reality Czar” to police fake news in society – a truly dystopian concept.
