In 2019, Google held a highly exclusive multi-day event at the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort in Sicily. The event was about fighting climate change. The main issue with this is that the guests arrived in over 100 private jets, were moved around in luxury supercars, and lived in utter extravagance. Climate Realism's Andy Singer scoured the internet to find information about the event. Despite the NDAs guests and employees had to sign, the information is out there. Learn about what these global elites do while preaching to you about climate change.

In our second in this series of previews of Heartland's 14th International Conference on Climate Change in Las Vegas in October (https://climateconference.heartland.org/), Climate Depot's Marc Morano joined us for a live-stream on May 11 for a sneak peek of his planned presentation. Morano talked about his new book, "Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal is even worse than you think." Defund the police to fight climate change? Ban meat? Eat insects? Ban automobiles? Morano laid out the threats faced by The Green New Deal. Morano explained the COVID-climate connection and how the progressives are using COVID-19 lockdowns as the precedent for coming climate lockdowns. Morano talked about how this may be the left’s ticket to a Great Reset in America. Are you ready for daily "climate change" death tolls? Morano explained how activists want to add climate change as a cause of death to death certificates. If you really care about the environment, government policy would be the opposite of what the UN and the Green New Deal propose. Marc shows how free markets, economic prosperity, technological revolution, and wealth result in the cleanest environments.

Christina Herrin, government relations manager of health policy at The Heartland Institute, interviews Justin Goodman of the White Coat Waste Project.

The discussion focuses on federal agency spending, transparency, cutting red-tape and the need to end tax payer dollars going to government run experiments on animals.

The media is back to reporting on the "so-called" climate crisis. This time, the media claims CO2 levels are the highest they've been in 3.6 million years. Disaster must be on the way. The main problem is that temperatures are relatively low despite the fact that CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere are so high. It blows up their whole catastrophic anthropogenic climate change narrative.

John Kerry finally told the truth. We could cut our carbon emissions to net-zero and it still won't change a thing. If it's worthless, why cut carbon dioxide emissions at all?
