Climate Fatalism: How Green New Deal Policies Hurt the Planet & the Poor, with Dr. Bjorn Lomborg
1 hr 11 min

Dr. Bjorn Lomborg joins us to continue the conversation on rational environmentalism which we left off with Michael Shellenberger. What are the second order effects of climate change policies, like the ones we find in the Green New Deal, on poor communities and developing countries? How do these policies - counterintuitively - actually hurt the environment more than doing nothing? And what are the 21st century solutions humanity should pursue to propel everybody into safer, cleaner societies?

Dr. Bjorn Lomborg is president of the Copenhagen Consensus Center and visiting professor at Copenhagen Business School. The Copenhagen Consensus Center is a think-tank that researches the smartest ways to do good. For this work, Lomborg was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world. His most recent book is "False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet." Follow Dr. Lomborg on Twitter at @BjornLomborg.

PODCAST SUMMARY HOUR 1: Guest host Derek A. Hunter of 680 WCBM AM, Baltimore, and The Derek Hunter Podcast debuts filling in for Rush. Derek is a senior columnist at Townhall and author of "Outrage, Inc.: How the Liberal Mob Ruined Science, Journalism, and Hollywood." Hypocrite politicians fly for Thanksgiving while commanding us to stay at home. Anti-Thanksgiving protests in Portland. There are fewer Klansman than the average attendance for a WNBA game, says SPL. Schools feeding kids teaches government dependence. This country is not over. Derek: "If I can rise to this chair from where I started in Detroit, anyone can succeed in America." Blue states say rooting out COVID payment fraud isn't a big priority. Trump is heading to Georgia, aiming to hold those two Senate seats. Where's the voter fraud news?  PODCAST SUMMARY HOUR 2: State Rep. Greg Rothman of Pennsylvania calls to discuss the election. Derek A. Hunter of 680 WCBM and The Derek Hunter Podcast, senior columnist at Townhall and author of "Outrage, Inc.: How the Liberal Mob Ruined Science, Journalism, and Hollywood," on Open Line Friday. The election seems suspicious; doing nothing is the danger. Leftists like Michael Moore, Chris Hayes, and George Costanza were all for electors switching in 2016. How many illegal votes and illegal alien murders are too many for leftists? Trump didn't do anything to the press; Obama did. Civil calls with liberals!  PODCAST SUMMARY HOUR 3: Author Derek A. Hunter of 680 WCBM and The Derek Hunter Podcast (as well as a former roofer). Find Rush @RealRLimbaugh and the guest host @DerekAHunter. Let's see some proof that Biden drew more enthusiasm than Obama. Supreme Court with ACB slaps down Cuomo attempt to limit freedom of religion, assembly for churches and synagogues. It took Cuomo two months to rescind his killer nursing home rules. Study shows the disastrous toll of shutdowns, but teachers unions love 'em. WaPo: Virtual learning forcing mothers, not fathers, to stay home. A lost generation of learning. The pardon of Gen. Michael Flynn exposes Judge Sullivan as a disgrace to the bench. Remember the Clinton-Gore China money scandals, and how Bush 43 let it slide? Clinton selling Mark Rich a pardon was fine! Obama also settled scores for Bush. Why do we think Biden won't? Should Trump issue a blanket pardon to his entire administration just for fun? The left's message is: This country sucks, and you don't have a chance. Obama's parents abandoned him and he became president, but somehow the country doesn't give you a chance?
