The United Nations' COP27 climate change summit has concluded, bringing another year of doomsday predictions, destructive policy promises, and a sharp uptick in private jet use. As the 27th summit, one may expect that delegates would stop sounding the alarm as predictions prove false again and again. Instead, we're left with promises of climate reparations and claims of unprecedented weather events. However, developing nations have switched course. Many argued that they should be allowed the freedom to use fossil fuels to lift their citizens out of poverty rather than rely on developed nations that promise infrastructure for renewables but never deliver it. Andy Singer, Anthony Watts, Linnea Lueken, and H. Sterling Burnett break COP27 down on today's episode of Climate Change Roundtable.

Apparently, the claim that global temperatures rising 1.5°C wasn’t enough to adequately scare the population into submission. Why not double it then? Alarmists are pushing the narrative that we’re going to see warming of 3.2°C unless we ACT NOW. On today’s episode of Climate Change Roundtable, Andy Singer, Linnea Lueken, Anthony Watts, and H. Sterling Burnett discuss this 3.2°C claim in detail. Where did this number come from? Is it a realistic possibility. Which climate model is predicting these results? The panel discusses these questions and more.

It's no secret that people across the globe are dealing with an energy shortage. The convenient excuse has been to blame Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which is a factor, but this narrative doesn't tell the whole story. For decades, politicians have passed anti-human policies to signal how "green" they are, and people are paying the price. With the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) just days away, the question turns to how global elites will explain the hardships regular people are suffering through. Their plans of controlling global temperatures through limiting carbon dioxide, a foolish plan outright, requires massive sacrifice in standards of living. With gas prices at all-time highs, supply chain woes, and energy rationing aplenty, are people truly willing to undergo more in the name of a nonexistent crisis? In today's episode of Climate Change Roundtable, Andy Singer, Anthony Watts, Linnea Lueken, and H. Sterling Burnett discuss the false information barrage being pushed my the corporate media in preparation of COP27.

POLITICO just released their inaugural Green 28 list. This list is constructed to rank the 28 individuals with the most influence on the European Union's sustainability, environmental, mobility, climate and energy policies. Vladimir Putin was awarded the top spot on the list. Russia holds a stronghold on energy exports within Europe. Without looking at why this is the case, POLITICO gleefully agues that Russia's invasion of Ukraine will force a green revolution. Andy Singer, Linnea Lueken, and Anthony Watts discuss the POLITICO Green 28 list on the newest episode of Climate Change Roundtable.

Europe is in the midst of an energy crisis, and it goes past Russia's invasion of Ukraine. For years, leaders across Europe have decided to implement energy policies that signal their green virtue but fail to provide adequate amounts of energy. Now, they're paying the price. America is headed down the same path. We're already seeing the effects Biden's policies have had on gas prices, but that's just the start. That's why energy experts are sounding the alarm. On today's episode of Climate Change Roundtable, Andy Singer, Anthony Watts, and H. Sterling Burnett discuss the current situation in America as well as pay respects to the recently passed climate scientist Dr. Tim Ball.

It's no secret that renewable energy is nowhere near as reliable as traditional forms of energy. When the wind doesn't blow or sun doesn't shine, the lights turn off. Californians deal with rolling blackouts regularly. Texans lost power during a record breaking winter storm, costing lives. Are global leaders abandoning the next generation in favor of virtue signaling how green they are? Or, is reality beginning to set in? Andy Singer, Anthony Watts, H. Sterling Burnett, and Linnea Lueken discuss recent events regarding the use of renewables in today's episode of Climate Change Roundtable.

The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 361 of the In The Tank Podcast. Following California’s lead, several other states have signed on to a plan to ban the sale of gas-powered cars by 2035. Similar plans have been proposed in the U.K. and elsewhere. While the plan aims to replace these vehicles with an electric option, the ITT crew questions whether this is part of a larger plan to completely destroy the idea of a personal automobile. Also, in response to Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan, China has announced they are suspending cooperation the world in the fight against climate change.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 359 of the In The Tank Podcast. In the pursuit of a carbon dioxide neutral future, the left have put all their eggs in the wind and solar basket while completely ignoring nuclear power.
