Acclaimed author Ann Bridges joins the Heartland Research Fellow Linnea Lueken to discuss the green energy revolution many democrats desire, but do not understand. Renewable energy production requires rare Earth minerals, something the Biden administration does not want to ramp up. Bridges explains how the environmental left wants green policies “both ways.” They want all electric vehicles and renewable energy, but refuse to mine for the critical minerals these technologies require. Bridges and Lueken discuss the General Mining Law of 1872. They explain why people think the General Mining Law is outdated, whether it needs to be changed, and how the law fits into the desires of the environmental left.

Energy is the lifeblood of the modern world. Yet, so few people understand the process behind turning on the lights, fueling a car, and getting goods delivered across the globe. That's why The Heartland Institute's Linnea Lueken created our new series "Energy Explained." Oil and gas take the center stage for the inaugural episode. Learn about their history, price, and how the modern world would cease to function without oil and gas.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Chris Talgo, and Nate Myers present episode 338 of the In The Tank Podcast. On this episode, the ITT crew talks about the idea that the democratic establishment is ready to send Biden and Kamala Harris packing. Also, in light of the brewing energy crisis, rising gas prices, and prolonged supply chain disruptions, it appears as though the ruling class in more interested in preparing us to live with less as opposed to increasing our standard of living.

Russia's influence in the energy market goes past exports of oil. Under the direction of Putin, Russia has funded green activists to prevent fracking and the use of fossil fuels. Putin wants other nations reliant on Russian oil, strengthening Russia's global influence. This clip comes from our In The Tank podcast.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Linnea Lueken, and the Center of the American Experiment’s Isaac Orr present episode 336 of the In The Tank Podcast, streamed LIVE as it is every Thursday at noon CT. On this episode, the ITT crew talks the rise in gas prices and the Biden Administration’s contradictory responses to the increases.

Heartland Institute Senior Fellow and Director Steve Milloy, the founder of JunkScience.com, was on Fox News @ Night the other day to talk about the Biden-caused energy crisis. Milloy, who was part of President Trump's EPA transition team, pointed out that EVERYTHING the Biden administration has done so far has made energy prices — including at the pump — go higher. Why? In tribute to its "hoax of a climate agenda." Milloy also points out exactly how the Biden administration has been lying about the Keystone XL pipeline. The Biden administration has also, in violation of a court order, has put a hold on new federal and oil gas leases.
