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 - 10/19/20
On Monday's Mark Levin Show, the media says President Trump's character is defective, even though there are Presidents that have used the FBI against newspapers and political opponents in the past. Yet, people criticize President Trump for Tweeting. In fact, our 2nd President John Adams jailed his dissenters, and JFK used the IRS and FBI to go after political opponents. LBJ took it a step further using the CIA against critics. Still, critics are obsessed with Trump's Tweets. Then, just two weeks before an election Dr. Fauci was on 60 minutes to hurt President Trump's chances. Fauci and Biden oversaw the Swine Flu pandemic and way more people were infected than with coronavirus. While the coronavirus is more deadly it hasn't spread as much as the Swine Flu did, and if it were just as lethal the casualties on Biden's watch would have been catastrophic. Even VP Biden's then Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, says that Obama and Biden dodged a bullet concerning the lethality of the disease. Later, Hunter Biden isn't the issue, Joe Biden's lies to the American people are the issue. The left inside of the media rushes to cover Biden by ignoring the story. Even the US Director of National Intelligence has stated that the information found on Hunter Biden's laptop is not part of any Russian disinformation campaign. John Ratcliffe added that politicians like Adam Schiff are politicizing the intelligence community to lie and cover-up for Joe and Hunter Biden. Biden has a history of lying that cost him an earlier run for the presidency and he has kept up the lies for 47 years. Afterward, Sen. Steve Daines calls in to discuss what's at stake in the Montana US Senate race. Finally, House candidate Yvette Harrell calls with an update on her campaign for New Mexico's 2nd congressional district.
