Heartland’s Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 254 of the In The Tank Podcast. It appears as though Joe Biden picked his VP and it is Kamala Harris.

Or should we use this as an opportunity to push for School Choice options? And last, the ITT crew discusses a policy proposal that is getting more attention – the federal jobs guarantee.

 

After getting sidetracked on a conversation about COVID-19 and a weird Andrew Cuomo poster, the ITT crew discusses Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards.

With each passing week, we hear about another story about “cancel culture.” Each case is seemingly crazier than the last. But what is “cancel culture?” At what point do we cross over from boycotts and criticism to “cancel culture?”

The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and The Center for the American Experiment’s Isaac Orr are joined by Michael Shellenberger in episode 250 of the In The Tank Podcast.

Shellenberger is on the show to talk about his “controversial” new book “Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All.” The book destroys the climate alarmist narrative that the world is coming to an end and that wind and solar are the future of energy in the United States. He also discusses how climate alarmism has become the new secular religion that he once observed, and his journey to the side of reason, science, and realism.
