The Heartland Institute podcast featuring scientists, authors, and policy experts who take the non-alarmist, climate-realist position on environment and energy policy.
Evidence Against a Climate Crisis
Anthony Watts, senior fellow for environment and climate at The Heartland Institute, joins the Chris Berg Show to discuss the mountain of evidence indicating there’s no climate crisis. Watts talks about the inaccuracies that plague climate models. He then discusses how the temperature record is based on flawed data.
96% of U.S. Climate Data Is Corrupted
A new bombshell report found that 96% of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) temperature stations produce corrupted data due to purposeful placement in man-made hot spots. These stations fail to meet the published standards deemed "acceptable" by NOAA itself.
This nationwide study follows up widespread corruption and heat biases found at NOAA stations in 2009, and the heat-bias distortion problem is even worse now.
The report eviscerates the media's narrative that the Earth is seeing runaway global warming. Has the Earth warmed over the last 20 years? Yes. Has it warmed to the degree the media claims? No. And most importantly, is it catastrophic? Absolutely not.
Anthony Watts, director of the study, joins the Shaun Thompson Show to discuss his findings.
The Official U.S. Surface Temperature Record Remains Fatally Flawed (Guest: Anthony Watts)
The temperature data sets used in official government reports making alarming claims about rapidly rising temperatures and dangerous climate change come from a fatally flawed network of weather stations. More than 96 percent of the stations surveyed fail to meet the National Weather Service’s requirements for quality measurements. As a result, the official temperature record is biased, being more than twice as hot as records from the U.S. Climate Reference Network. If we can't trust the temperature records, which is supposed to be the driving force for dangerous climate change, why should we trust the predictions of worsening extreme weather made by government agencies?
Al Gore’s Scare Stories Fall on Deaf Ears
After years of appearing as an “expert,” the public knows Al Gore spews false prediction after false prediction on climate change. He then labels those who expose how often he’s wrong as buffoons or terrorists. Gore is using scare stories to profit and gain power, and he’s doing it by trying to terrify the public.
H. Sterling Burnett, director of Heartland’s Arthur B. Robinson Center on Environment and Climate, joins The John Steigerwald Show to discuss how Al Gore got rich of climate fearmongering.
Socialism Will Not Win Despite the Current Energy/Supply Crises (Guest: Jay Lehr)
America's current energy and food crises are not the unintentional results of misguided policies. Rather, the crises are the deliberate result of policies imposed to turn people into serfs, giving global elites more control over peoples' lives. Elites want regular people to beg for ever more government help.
Fortunately, the people will eventually wake up. New technology and open markets will result in the removal of bad rulers, and thus, improved lives. The pendulum will swing back to freedom for a while. But we must fear protect freedom when authoritarianism creeps in.
Biden and Company Created Today’s Energy Crisis, ESG Is Exacerbating It (Guest: Gary Stone)
The statements made by the Biden administration and Congressional Democrats about the fossil fuel industry's dim future created the energy crisis plaguing the nation. Policies implemented that damage the industry reinforce and exacerbate the issue. Proposed corporate and government ESG mandates are the cherry on top. As Gary Stone of Five States Energy explains, America has the energy to be independent and prosperous. The only thing holding its production back is alarmist climate rhetoric and policies adopted to end fossil fuel use in the name of fighting climate change and establishment of a new world order.
Burnett Is a Problem
Sterling Burnett is a smart guy but his interview skills, while much better than when he started, are still weak. He speaks too fast. He mumbles or drops his volume as he asks questions and speaks making it difficult to understand him. As do so many interviewers these days, he interrupts his interviewees after he asks them questions, asks a simple question then adds a longer question and provides his own answer to the question before allowing his interlocutor to answer the initial question, and often pontificates about the subject at hand rather than allowing the interviewee to answer. I listen to these podcasts to listen to the expert or scientist, not Sterling. If Sterling wants to express his opinions or his expertise, he should host a solo show without a guest or have a guest but frame the episode as a conversation between equals. The podcasts always provide good, useful, educational information. The interviewer gets in the way, though.
4 stars for the podcast (there is always room for improvement). 2 stars for Sterling’s interview technique.
I am shocked that iTunes would have such ignorance broadcast on their platform. This kind of misinformation is dangerous and iTunes should remove this podcast immediately.
Yikes. These people are uninformed and are contributing to the demise of America.
