SCOTUS Limits EPA Authority

July 15, 2022
James Taylor, president of The Heartland Institute, joins WTTW's Chicago Tonight to discuss the Supreme Court's recent ruling that the EPA does not have the authority to limit power companies carbon dioxide emissions. The ruling is a massive victory on multiple fronts. First, it scales back the EPA's power it wrongfully operated with. The EPA is a tool the deep state uses to strip rights away from Americans. Second, CO2 is not a pollutant. Acting as if it's the main factor in climate change, a natural process, is flat out incorrect. James Taylor sets the record straight to the other panelists on the program. Armed with actual data, Taylor explains why this was such a good move by the Supreme Court.

The corporate media is predictably latching onto the wildfire at Yosemite Park as another example of climate change in action. You'd think the fact that a person started this fire would be deterrence enough, but no. The media will take any opportunity they can to push the climate alarmism narrative. Join Andy Singer, Linnea Lueken, H. Sterling Burnett, and Anthony Watts at 12pm CT every Friday for a live discussion of the week's most prevalent climate change stories.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Chris Talgo present episode 354 of the In The Tank Podcast. A new poll, recently conducted by Rasmussen Reports, shows some disturbing results about Democrats positions on the Supreme Court and the Constitution. The ITT crew breaks down the numbers and discusses what they mean for our country. Also, do we have to endure high gas and energy prices to protect democracy? That seems to be the message from the elites at the World Economic Forum.

The Biden administration is releasing around one million barrels of oil per day from the United States Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). The move is designed to ease Americans' suffering at the pump, suffering the Biden administration solely blames on Russia. The Heartland Institute's Andy Singer, Linnea Lueken, Anthony Watts, and H. Sterling Burnett discuss the dwindling levels of the SPR as well as other stories the corporate media refuses to cover in this week's episode of Climate Change Roundtable.

The Heartland Institute's flagship In the Tank Podcast covers the secret White House meetings with BlackRock -- one of the most-powerful investment firms on earth with $10 TRILLION in assets under its control. How much political clout is it wielding, and to what ends? Hint: A lot, and nothing good. ​ We also talk about the farmer strike in the Netherlands over climate regulations that are making it nearly impossible to grow food, the underreported story of how "green farming" is causing violent unrest over a lack of food in Sri Lanka, how natural gas is being called "green" now by the European Union soon, and HUGE wins for school choice that could change our public school system forever.

Fresh off the heels of the Roe vs. Wade decision, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) just neutered the runaway powers the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claimed to have. Referencing the Clean Air Act, the EPA has enacted regulations, fines, and other indirect means to essentially create quasi-legislation outside of the bounds of congress. This power wielded by the EPA was never granted and is supposed to reside within those who United States citizens elect to congress. Instead, Americans fell victim to wildly overbearing regulations enacted by unelected bureaucrats. Heartland's Linnea Lueken, Anthony Watts, and H. Sterling Burnett join guest host Jim Lakely to discuss the bombshell ruling. Join us every Friday at 12pm CT for live episodes of Climate Change Roundtable.

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.
