June 17, 2022
LIVE at noon CT on Friday, June 17: The Heartland Institute’s James Taylor, Anthony Watts, and Linnea Lueken cover the heat wave that gripped much of the United States this week. Are the world’s hottest cities really becoming uninhabitable because of man-caused climate change? The answer is “no,” and the climate and energy experts at Heartland will explain why. We will also cover “climate anxiety” among our misinformed youth, William Shatner crying about the planet he viewed from space, Joe Biden’s schizophrenic energy policy and messaging, and whether humans are to blame for the Great Salt Lake getting lower. Tune in LIVE and participate in the chat. We’ll put you on screen and answer your questions.

The catastrophic climate change narrative is built on the idea that temperatures are rising at uncontrollable rates due to human greenhouse gas emissions. The reported temperatures come from surface stations across the globe. For the last few weeks, Anthony Watts has travelled across the country observing the quality of these stations, and the results are shocking. Check out Climate Change Roundtable live every Friday at 12pm CT on YouTube, Rumble, and Twitter.

As Spring turns into Summer, the climate alarmists come into full bloom. LIVE at noon CT today on Climate Change Roundtable ep15, The Heartland Institute's Jim Lakely, H. Sterling Burnett, and Linnea Lueken talk about how the media hypes up allergy and tornado season every spring, and every summer brings "unprecedented" heat, droughts, and wildfires. And, of course, it's all the fault of humans. How ridiculous is that? We'll go over the facts.

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 They explain why people think the General Mining Law is outdated, whether it needs to be changed, and how the law fits into the desires of the environmental left.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. History of oil and gas: - https://www.apga.org/apgamainsite/aboutus/facts/history-of-natural-gas - https://ektinteractive.com/history-of-oil/ - https://aoghs.org/offshore-history/offshore-oil-history/

The corporate media frequently runs headlines claiming it's the "hottest year on record." This claim is more than just misleading. It's flat out wrong. Anthony Watts explains how the surface temperature record is filled with dirty data that results in higher temperatures being reported than what exist in reality.

Governments across the globe reference the results of numerous climate models to defend the need for centralized climate action. This is problematic. The majority of climate models often overpredict the rate and degree of warming the Earth will undergo, resulting in policies that are wholly unnecessary while infringing upon economic and individual liberty. Steve Milloy, Anthony Watts, Linnea Lueken, and Andy Singer discuss the climate model issue in this episode of Climate Change Roundtable, aired live every Friday at noon CT.

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 JunkScience.com’s Steve Milloy present episode 337 of the In The Tank Podcast. On this episode, the ITT crew discusses the question “is the climate change agenda dead?” In light of rising gas and energy prices, it looks as though the climate change agenda is being put on the back burner.
