Hello! In this edition of the In the Tank Podcast, Isaac is joined by Donny "Give me Free Stuff" Kendal, and Jim Lakely of The Heartland Institute.

Study participants were given the option of having the earth flooded by massive tidal waves or listening to virtue-signaling, smarmy lectures by environmentalists for the next decade. Over 87% of respondents selected, "Bring on the tidal wave." A few people said they'd rather take the lectures, but after hearing a few minutes of the lectures, quickly changed their minds. Several respondents rushed straight to the ocean, arms outstretched, and asked...
