Heartland Institute Science Director Jay Lehr was a guest on WIBW radio in Topeka, Kansas to react to Barack Obama’s speech on climate change. Jay was a great guest for host Kelly Lenz because for years Jay has been on a constant speaking tour to farm groups in rural areas of the U.S. and Canada about energy and the environment.
Lenz’s interview with Jay touched on “green energy” — including wind farms, which Jay says will be regrettable and idle lawn ornaments across the country soon — coal-powered power plants, the Keystone XL pipeline, his recent conversation about energy policy with Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, hydraulic fracturing for natural gas (fracking), and much more.
