Environmental consultant Rich Trzupek, one of Heartland’s policy advisors on energy and the environment, was on the nationally syndicated Dennis Prager Show today to talk about his new Encounter Broadside, How the EPA’s Green Tyranny is Stifling America. He could hardly have been on a better show.
Prager is a long-time public advocate for real science and sensible policy on the environment — and is especially adept at framing moral arguments for climate realism. He’s a real hero in the public debate.
Rich joined Heartland’s stable of advisors late last year immediately after we hosted him in Chicago for a lecture on his book, Regulators Gone Wild: How the EPA is Ruining American Industry.
In May, just after we put on our Seventh International Conference on Climate Change, The Economist magazine called Heartland “the world’s most prominent think tank promoting skepticism about man-made climate change.” We consider that a high honor.
I’m a long-time listener of the Dennis Prager Show and a Pragertopia subscriber — a status I recommend to anyone interested in some of the smartest talk radio around. I thanked Prager and his producers tonight via email for having Rich on the show. And I encouraged him to lean on Heartland to bring the truth to his audience with some of the most authoritative sources for climate realism in the world — Rich, among them.
