11/29 Hunter Biden Calls GOP Bluff & Oil-Soaked COP28 w/ Kate Aronoff

November 29, 2023

It’s Hump Day! Sam speaks with Kate Aronoff, staff writer focusing on climate at the New Republic, to discuss the upcoming COP28 climate summit. First, Sam runs through updates on Israel and Hamas’ tenuous truce, Saudi Arabia-Iran relations, growing aid for Gaza, the potential for the US conditioning aid to Israel, the martyrdom of George Santos, Nikki Haley’s big Koch endorsement, and challenges to Iowa’s right-wing legislation, before diving into the absurdity of the GOP now refusing to hold public testimony over the Biden Crime Family investigation. Kate Aranoff and Sam then dive into the UN’s Conference of Parties (COP), an international meet and greet on climate change with both state and private actors invited, which has seen the signing of documents like the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement, and its problematic (and unsurprising) relationship with major state and private actors involved in the production of fossil fuels. After parsing through some major examples – and why they genuinely represent the UN’s goals in “solving” climate change – Aranoff wraps up by assessing the future (and future corruption) of the Conference of Parties.

And in the Fun Half: Sam discusses the Senate’s growing drive for conditioning aid to Israel amid the IDF’s losing PR battle (due to outrageous war crimes), Ryan from Wisconsin helps Sam parse through the USDA’s official updates on fruit hardiness, a Canadian caller tackles Canada’s role in thwarting Maine’s Pine Tree Power initiative, and Mike Johnson and Fox try to speak for the facts of the Hunter Biden case. Sam also parses through the recent discourse around Joe Biden’s economy, Jeremy Boering and Tim Pool try to solve racism via a purge-like catharsis, and Tom from Chicago brings the Daily Wire’s newest film into the conversation. Robbie from St. Louis pitches a potential media literacy campaign, plus, your calls and IMs!
