Heartland's Donald Kendal and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 230 of the In The Tank Podcast. The New Hampshire primary has brought a little more resolution to the Democratic Presidential candidate landscape.

Naomi Seibt, a 19-year-old German YouTube personality and influencer, has joined The Heartland Institute's Arthur B. Robinson Center on Climate and Environmental Policy. Naomi will be working on communicating the climate realism message to her generation – which has marinated in apocalyptic nonsense their whole lives – for audiences in both in Europe and the United States.

Unlike the global legacy media’s favorite young climate communicator, Greta Thunberg, Naomi doesn’t want you to “panic.” She wants you to “think” – the way she did to free herself from the climate alarmist indoctrination.
As she says in this video introducing herself on Heartland’s YouTube Channel:
“I’ve got very good news for you. The world is not ending because of climate change. In fact, 12 years from now we will still be around casually taking photos on our iPhone 18s. …
“We are currently being force-fed a very dystopian agenda of climate alarmism that tells us that we as humans are destroying the planet. And that the young people, especially, have no future – that the animals are dying, that we are ruining nature.
“I really believe that many [members of left-wing environmental groups] have good intentions, that they are genuinely scared of the world ending, and that they are scared that their parents and grandparents are ruining the planet. It’s breaking relationships. It’s breaking up families. And we at The Heartland Institute, we want to spread truth about the science behind climate realism, which is essentially the opposite of climate alarmism.
“Many people are now actually developing mental disorders and referring to them as eco-anxiety and eco-depression. I believe it’s important that we act now and change this entire mainstream narrative of fear-mongering and climate alarmism, because it’s basically just holding us hostage in our own brains.
“Don’t let an agenda that is trying to depict you as an energy-sucking leech on the planet get into your brain and take away all of your passionate spirit.
“I don’t want you to panic. I want you to think.”
Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 229 of the In The Tank Podcast. The Iowa Caucus debacle continues to roll on and the news about the coronavirus is still pouring in. The In The Tank crew weighs in on both topics. In the latter half of the podcast, they discuss a new report from the Heartland Institute titled “Protecting the Environment from the Green New Deal.” Proponents of plans like the Green New Deal often fail to consider the massive environmental implications of transitioning to wind and solar energy production.
After the Democratic Party's disastrous night in Iowa, socialists everywhere are wondering whether there's a conspiracy to keep Bernie off the ticket in November. And is there any reason for Americans to believe the same people who can't build a well-functioning app should control our entire economy and health care system? Donald Kendal and Justin Haskins answer these questions and more on this episode of the podcast.
Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Ed Hudgins in episode 228 of the In The Tank Podcast. A second, third, and fourth Bernie Sanders campaign staffer has been caught saying radical and extreme things. This extremism is being fueled by the perceived need to take immediate action to save the planet. But, how high is the social cost of carbon dioxide? The In The Tank crew takes a look at a new study that shows we may be benefitting from a gradual warming environment. In the second half, Ed Hudgins joins the show to discuss the potential ramifications of increased automation and artificial intelligence in society and the economy.
Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 227 of the In The Tank Podcast. They discuss how the Doomsday Clock has been set to 100 seconds, Elizabeth Warren getting called out by an "angry dad" over her college loan forgiveness plan, and how Trump told the elite assembled at the World Economic Forum in Davos to ignore the “prophets of doom” on the climate. The In The Tank crew gives their take on all these issues and more in this week’s episode.

President Trump traveled to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week and he had a lot of good economic news from the United States to share: record low unemployment, millions of new jobs, a booming energy sector, a new trade deal with China and a replacement for NAFTA. Trump also, remarkably, took on the “prophets of [climate] doom and their predictions of the apocalypse,” which have failed to come true for more than 50 years.
Director of Communications Jim Lakely and Research Director Ed Hudgins break down some highlights from Trump’s economic speech, and how he was the only voice of reason at a conference filled with climate alarmists.
Heartland Institute President Frank Lasée was on WTTW's "Chicago Tonight" program on January 21, 2020 to debate Chicago Alderman Matt Martin on his resolution declaring a "climate emergency" in the city of Chicago. "Chicago Tonight" is the local PBS affiliate's flagship news program.
Frank pointed out that forcing Chicago to undertake expensive measures to "fight climate change" are not just unnecessary, but an egregious waste of resources for a city running nearly a $1 billion budget deficit. He also debunked the claim that carbon dioxide is a "pollutant" and that changes in the level of Lake Michigan has anything to do with human activity.
