The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Chris Talgo, and Cameron Sholty present episode 364 of the In The Tank Podcast. In a huge win for free speech, a Circuit Court struck down a challenge of a Texas law that seeks to prevent big tech censorship. Heartland Government Relations Director Cameron Sholty joins the show to talk about this victory. Also, Biden says the pandemic is over. We say "duh," but many others are angry.

For decades, climate alarmists have been warning of impending doom from climate change. Such admonitions go back as far as 1989, when a senior U.N. official announced that "entire nations would be wiped off the face of the Earth due to sea level rise." Of course that hasn't happened, and neither has any other predicted disaster since. Yet that hasn't stopped new predictions from being made. One of the favorite disaster scenarios is a "climate tipping point", where supposedly Earth's conditions reach a point where they flip flop from stable to chaos. This past week, a rash of stories have been circulated in the media on the topic due to a recent study that predicts 20 climate tipping points in Earth's future. Our Climate Change Roundtable team explores whether these are fact or fiction.

After a solid couple of years of violence directed at the right wing, Joe Biden has come out strongly against the opposite. Ignore Antifa violence. Ignore the fact that a republican congressman was shot. Ignore the multiple attacks against Rand Paul. It's right wing violence we should fear. Well, Biden is wrong, and this seems like a blatant attempt to stir up true anger. These are dangerous times.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Chris Talgo present episode 363 of the In The Tank Podcast. Despite continued high inflation numbers, stock market drops, and a shaky housing market, the Biden Administration thought is was a good time to celebrate the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. Also, major credit card companies have taken action that will essentially create a national gun registry.

It's no secret that renewable energy is nowhere near as reliable as traditional forms of energy. When the wind doesn't blow or sun doesn't shine, the lights turn off. Californians deal with rolling blackouts regularly. Texans lost power during a record breaking winter storm, costing lives. Are global leaders abandoning the next generation in favor of virtue signaling how green they are? Or, is reality beginning to set in? Andy Singer, Anthony Watts, H. Sterling Burnett, and Linnea Lueken discuss recent events regarding the use of renewables in today's episode of Climate Change Roundtable.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 362 of the In The Tank Podcast. President Joe Biden is seemingly taking on a new "tough guy" persona. The ITT crew discusses whether this new "Dark Brandon" persona is going to lead to an increased push for agenda items during his next two years in office. Will Biden more aggressively push for climate action, or gun control measures, or health care policy?

Notice: There were some internet issues early on in this broadcast. We discuss the media's coverage on hurricanes while it's resolved, but skip ahead to get back to the meat of the discussion! The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicted an active hurricane season earlier this year. Up until now, this hasn't been the case, but there's still time for this to change. Stanley Goldenberg is on NOAA's team that produces seasonal hurricane outlooks. He joins the program to discuss why this hurricane season was predicted to be active, what we should expect moving forwards, and how these predictions are made.

The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 361 of the In The Tank Podcast. Following California’s lead, several other states have signed on to a plan to ban the sale of gas-powered cars by 2035. Similar plans have been proposed in the U.K. and elsewhere. While the plan aims to replace these vehicles with an electric option, the ITT crew questions whether this is part of a larger plan to completely destroy the idea of a personal automobile. Also, in response to Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan, China has announced they are suspending cooperation the world in the fight against climate change.
