Climate Fatalism: How Green New Deal Policies Hurt the Planet & the Poor, with Dr. Bjorn Lomborg
Play episode · 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.

Mark Levin Audio Rewind - 10/23/20
On Friday's Mark Levin Show, President Trump drew out lie after lie from former VP Joe Biden at last night's debate. Trump brilliantly called Biden to the carpet for not implementing any of his grandiose plans when he had the opportunity to implement them during his 47 years in public office. Then, the most glaring fact-check was when Biden claimed that he's never called to end fracking and challenged Trump to put the video of him saying it on his website. Trump tweeted it. Biden's 110-page manifesto known as the unity task force document on his campaign website was taken to task. The radical energy plan, co-authored by Rep. AOC, will cripple our economy and dramatically raise costs. It will also destroy our energy-production capacity. Later, former President Barack Obama lied more than 36 times saying that people who had health insurance would be able to keep it. This was false. Yet, Joe Biden told that same lie at the final presidential debate and it went unchecked by the moderator. Plus, one question that was obviously missing from the debate was the one regarding any formal denial of the Hunter Biden laptop. Biden won't say that it's not Hunter's laptop, and even Hunter has come forward to deny that it's his. This is the most corrupt media in American history. Afterward, Senator Lindsey Graham joins the show to discuss the 100 million-dollar attack on his campaign. Graham has fought hard to support Trump and now the DNC is after him. Finally, Senate candidate Daniel Gade calls in with an update on his campaign against Mark Warner, his military service, and how he's being outspent by the Democrats.
