The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 259 of the In The Tank Podcast.

Heartland Institute President Frank Lasée was on WTTW's "Chicago Tonight" program on January 21, 2020 to debate Chicago Alderman Matt Martin on his resolution declaring a "climate emergency" in the city of Chicago. "Chicago Tonight" is the local PBS affiliate's flagship news program. Frank pointed out that forcing Chicago to undertake expensive measures to "fight climate change" are not just unnecessary, but an egregious waste of resources for a city running nearly a $1 billion budget deficit. He also debunked the claim that carbon dioxide is a "pollutant" and that changes in the level of Lake Michigan has anything to do with human activity.

Heartland’s Jim Lakely takes over as host this week for Episode 216 of the In The Tank Podcast and interviews Ben Boychuk, managing editor of the conservative journal American Greatness and a fellow at the Center on American Greatness. They discuss the founding mission of the site, and how they came to embrace the policies of Donald Trump before just about any national organization or publication. Jim and Ben, a long-time friend, also talk about whether America is close to an inevitable decline, whether we really are in the middle of a Cold Civil War, and the best book Ben has read in the past year. American Greatness: https://amgreatness.com/ The second half of the podcast is Jim’s interview with Jason Isaac of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, recorded live at last week’s State Policy Network annual meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
