The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Nate Myers are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 292 of the In the Tank Podcast. The climate alarmist activist group, the Extinction Rebellion, has been targeting the Biden Administration, arguing they are not taking climate change serious enough. The ITT crew discusses the XR as well as a new report from the Center of the American Experiment about the Vacant Land Myth and why Wind and Solar energy projects are doomed to fail.

Heartland Director Steve Milloy, proprietor of JunkScience.com, joined "The Ingraham Angle" on Fox News Thursday to talk about President Biden's climate summit on Earth Day. "There is a reason why Earth Day and Lenin's birthday are on the same day," he said. "This is just a totalitarian power grab." The world's poor will suffer most under Biden's plans.

In this preview of Heartland’s 14th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-14) on Oct. 15-17 in Las Vegas, the Heritage Foundation’s Kevin Dayaratna, Ph.D., gave a brief presentation on his new paper with Ross McKitrick and Patrick Michaels on climate sensitivity, agricultural productivity and the social cost of carbon. https://climateconference.heartland.org/ This event was live-streamed at 3 p.m. ET on April 22, 2021. About Kevin Dayaratna: https://www.heritage.org/staff/kevin-d-dayaratna In my research at Heritage, I have extensively examined the integrated assessment models used to estimate the social cost of carbon (SCC) that have been used as a basis for regulating the energy sector of our economy. In particular, I have examined their robustness to a variety of assumptions, including specification of a discount rate, time horizon, and an equilibrium climate sensitivity distribution and found that these models are highly sensitive to reasonable changes to these assumptions and thus highly prone to user manipulation. In this research (co-authored with Ross McKitrick and Pat Michaels) published in the peer reviewed journal Environmental Economics and Policy Studies, we examine yet another assumption in one of the integrated assessment models - the agricultural productivity component of the FUND model. We find that this assumption is based on outdated research and vastly understated. Under a variety of reasonable adjustments to this aspect of the model, however, the FUND model results in a net zero or negative SCC, suggesting that there may be effectively zero or perhaps even net benefits due to a moderate amount of climate change.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Nate Myers present episode 291 of the In the Tank Podcast. Today's topics: Earth Day and COVID fears perpetuated by the media. Is Earth Day effective? Will the left eventually embrace population control? Will the “pause” of the J&J vaccine discourage people from getting vaccinated? The ITT crew discuss these questions and more.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins and the Center of the American Experiment's Isaac Orr present episode 290 of the In the Tank Podcast. The guys discuss the latest media expose on CNN by James O'Keefe of Project Veritas. After successfully taking down Trump and promoting COVID panic across America, CNN's next planned media panic will be on climate change. The ITT crew also give a primer on what climate realists actually believe, what climate alarmists claim is happening to the planet, and how it all ties into the Great Reset. All this, and more, will be addressed at Heartland's 14th International Conference on Climate Change in October. Want to attend?
