John Nothdurft and Donny Kendal present episode #115 of the In The Tank Podcast. This weekly podcast features (as always) interviews, debates, and roundtable discussions that explore the work of think tanks across the country. The show is available for download as part of the Heartland Daily Podcast every Friday. Today’s podcast features input from Director of Communications Jim Lakely, Director of Publications Sam Karnick, as well as work from the Tax Foundation.
Policybot Featured Work of the Week
With the help of Jim Lakely and Sam Karnick, Donny and John discuss a recently released article from NBC News titled “Science Proves Kids are Bad for Earth. Morality Suggests We Stop Having Them.” This anti-human approach to stopping potential global warming comes as a shock to some on the panel.
They also talk about a report co-authored by the same author of the above article titled “Population Engineering and the Fight against Climate Change.” This creepy and downright frightening report outlines policy prescriptions that could be instituted to slow or reverse the growth in the world population. The paper recommends policies starting with “providing adequate education and health care” to the poorest citizens to initiating population control propaganda in the effort to curb fertility rates in the developed world.
Other Think Tank Works
Donny, John and Jim then talk about the recent developments in the tax reform battle. The Tax Foundation released a few analyses that show what the money the average family can expect save if and when the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is passed.
