The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 379 of the In The Tank Podcast. With the start of a new year, climate alarmism has been given center stage. 60 Minutes recently ran a segment about the looming population doomsday. The segment, featuring noted doomsayer Paul Ehrlich, promoted dire warnings like “humanity is unsustainable,” and how we are “in the midst of sixth mass extinction.” Also, the UN convened a conference on biodiversity a few weeks ago where world leaders agreed to a bunch of principles which could have major implications.
