The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or IPCC has issued a new report and the collective climate alarmists are doing what they always do – forecasting doom unless we do something drastic. John flies solo for today's podcast, looking at not only the latest climate code red but past predictions of planetary doom that have predictably gone unrealized. There is some sound science in the new report, but the media latch on to all of the dire and crazy predictions. John shows the severe cutbacks recommended in the report in order to save the planet. Politics has distorted the science so much so that we cannot even debate the reality of these cutbacks.
In his speech before a sparse joint session of Congress, Joe Biden uttered the following unscripted words on climate change, "If we do everything perfectly, it's not going to ultimately matter." Well, if that is the case, why are we spending trillions of dollars in taxpayer money to try and fix it? Joining us today is Steve Milloy, Founder of the climate information website JunkScience.com. He points out that even though apparently their solutions won't matter, they are still pushing forward with them to the point where instead of Covid lockdowns, we will have climate lockdowns. So if it won't work, why do it? The answer just may be about ultimate control over everything.
I know, I know, it's election day, but we don't know the outcome yet, so let's talk about the consequences behind green energy. Joining us is environmental consultant Steve Milloy (junkscience.com), founder and publisher of JunkScience.com. He looks at the realities of eliminating fossil fuels and going with green energy. Some of the metals used in green energy are mined by children in horrible conditions. The technology is very expensive and itself cannot survive without fossil fuels. So we have to be smart about how we approach this and think of the consequences before moving forward. Sound environmentalism has to be based on sound science and sound economics.
