The Mainstream Media Is Wrong AGAIN on Climate Change

In our seventh in this series previewing The Heartland Institute's 14th International Conference on Climate Change -- Oct. 15-17 in Las Vegas -- join us LIVE on YouTube Thursday, August 19 at 10:30 a.m. ET (9:30 a.m. CT) as Derrick Hollie, president of Reaching America, gives a sneak peek of his presentation. In this preview, Hollie will discuss "How Biden’s Energy Policy Harms the Poor." An overwhelming share of the public (81%) believes that it is critical to maintain U.S. energy independence and not rely on foreign oil. Such an agreement is exceedingly rare in a polarized country. It is heartening to see Americans of all political stripes and ideologies embrace energy independence and reject reliance on foreign countries. Unfortunately, the new Biden administration has taken every step imaginable to reduce America’s hard-fought energy independence – from canceling the Keystone XL pipeline, to banning oil and gas exploration everywhere it can. The result of Biden’s “green” energy agenda will be more California-style blackouts and higher prices to heat and cool your home, fill your gas tank, and purchase anything that needs to be shipped by truck (which is just about everything you buy). Derrick Hollie has testified before Congress several times on the need for policies that counter energy policy, one of the least-talked about economic strains on the poorest Americans.

The United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) on climate change earlier this week. The "Summary for Policymakers" section of the report continues to blame humanity for many observed climate trends. Mainstream media sources have jumped on AR6 as reason to blame humanity for climate change. A CBS NEWS headline reads "Island nations react to devastating U.N. climate change report: 'We are on the edge of extinction.'" H. Sterling Burnett is the host of the "Environment & Climate News" podcast for The Heartland Institute. He is also a Heartland senior fellow on environmental policy and the managing editor of Environment & Climate News. Burnett brings on two more experts for the discussion.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Chris Talgo and special guest Steve Milloy of discuss the latest alarmist climate report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The so-called "AR6 Report" is getting a ton of attention in the media, and all the coverage is gloom and doom. But is that really the case? What does the report really say, and is there a climate crisis caused by human activity? And, if there is, what can/should we do about it?

Chuck Schumer must regret his recent words. He said COVID-19 "was horrible" while calling for future action on climate change. These words stand in stark contrast to the words from Joe Biden and other liberal politicians across the country. Chuck Schumer also stated that climate change will be worse than COVID-19 ever was within a few short years. Hundred of thousands died from COVID-19 in the United States. Are we years away from a climate apocalypse? Chuck Schumer definitely wished he could take these words back.

As The Heartland Institute is getting ready for our big climate conference in Las Vegas October 15-17 (ICCC-14), we wanted to offer you some sneak previews of what the program will look like. And how better to do that than to invite our speakers to give previews of the presentations they are preparing? In our sixth in this series, join us LIVE on YouTube Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. ET (1:00 p.m. CT) as Dr. Patrick Michaels, Senior Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and the CO2 Coalition, gives a sneak peek of his Las Vegas presentation. In this preview, Michaels will discuss "Climate Models vs. Reality." ABOUT PATRICK MICHAELS' PRESENTATION Even the legacy mega journals, such as Nature and, more recently, Science, are now carrying articles documenting that the newest generation of climate models, known as CMIP-6, are generally supplied with the wrong input data, with completely unrealistic future emission levels. As a result, they are predicting far too much warming for recent and future decades. Further, even with better input, the models continue to overpredict warming. The same recent Science article dramatically exaggerated observed temperature changes in the past decade. In reality, we inhabit a modestly warming planet, where the causes are a mix of internal and human-related inputs. But the greening of the earth, which is especially concentrated over the world’s tropical rainforests and high-latitude land areas of the Northern Hemisphere, is almost entirely of human origin. There is also little credible evidence for increasingly violent weather, and much more evidence that increasing weather damages are a result of rising property values and population density, especially in highly desired coastal regions.
