Hurricane Ian Isn't Proof of Anthropogenic Climate Change

As expected, the corporate media latched onto Hurricane Ian to advance the false narrative of anthropogenic, catastrophic climate change. Rather than dedicate airtime to informing the public on key developments, alarmists are capitalizing on this devastating weather event to scare the public into submission. On today's episode of Climate Change Roundtable, the panel covers reporting from the New York Times, CNN, and MSNBC and then contrasts it with objective data to highlight the rampant misinformation behind climate alarmism.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Chris Talgo present episode 365 of the In The Tank Podcast. There have been a couple stories that have popped up recently that might point to the fact that the climate cult is falling apart. From Al Gore calling out corporations for "greenwashing" to Rashida Tlaib lashing out at bankers for not cutting off fossil fuel financing, it seems like the "greenies" are turning on each other. Also, YouTube denied our attempt at monetizing our channel, claiming our content is "harmful."

In Exploring Energy ep3, Linnea Lueken covers the ins and outs of the United States' use of biofuels. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates blending biofuels into gasoline, imposing higher costs on Americans in the process. In 2022 alone, the EPA's mandate requires blending 20.63 billion gallons of conventional biofuels, including ethanol, into the nation's fuel pool.

Immediately after Senate passage, the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” was praised in the corporate media and among activists on the left as being the most-significant climate action the U.S. government in our history. But just like the bill won't improve our runaway inflation rate, it will also do absolutely nothing to improve our weather or decrease the global temperature by the end of the century. After about $400 billion more in taxpayer subsidies for green energy, the temperature might decrease by between about three-hundredths (0.028F) of a degree and nine-ten thousandths (0.0009F) of a degree. Maybe. On this edition of Climate Change Roundtable, The Heartland Institute's H. Sterling Burnett, Linnea Lueken, and Steve Milloy join Host Jim Lakely to discuss the "climate fighting" aspects of the latest Washington boondoggle spending bill. Just how bad is it?

Democrats failed to pass sweeping legislation remaking America under the guise of a climate emergency. Thus, they turned to Joe Biden to enact a swath of executive orders to force their desires on all Americans. Biden did not declare a climate emergency, but did vow to do everything he can using executive orders and the power of the executive branch to advance his alarmist agenda. But more importantly, climate science lost a true warrior this week, Dr. Patrick Michaels. Dr. Michaels was a trailblazer in objective climate science and source of inspiration for researchers in pursuit of the truth.

The Heartland Institute's Jim Lakely, Chris Talgo, and S.T. Karnick talk about the growing possibility that President Biden will officially declare a "climate emergency," seizing broad powers to shove the Green New Deal down our throats. Biden's climate speech in Massachusetts on Wednesday was a mess, and didn't go that far, but what if he does? The In The Tank crew discuss on episode #355 of the podcast. We also cover the one-year anniversary of Biden assuring America that rising inflation was only "temporary," and how Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is glad gas prices are high, all the better to get people into electric vehicles. Speaking of those, a real-world test of an electric Ford F-150 towing a trailer went poorly ... as anyone with a brain would have suspected.

The president could even use the power to curtail the movement of fossil fuels on pipelines, trains and ships.

Americans across the country are feeling the effects of self-inflicted natural gas shortages. Joe Biden and the Democrat party want to blame Russia, but the reality is that anti-energy policies put in place by the Biden administration pushed America into this costly hole. Linnea Lueken, research fellow on Climate and Environmental Policy at The Heartland Institute, discusses the facts, history, and policy surrounding liquefied natural gas (LNG). Simply put, LNG is essential to American energy sovereignty, lower electricity costs, and the capacity to support our allies abroad.

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.
