Have you ever wondered why some of the biggest problems we face, from illegal immigration to global warming to poverty never seem to get fixed?
Take poverty, for example. Over the last forty years, America’s ten poorest cities all had one simple thing in common but self-serving politicians will never tell you what that is (or explain how easy it would be to change): Glenn Beck will (see Chapter 20).
Global warming is another issue that’s ripe with lies, distortion and hidden agendas. For example, how many times have you heard that carbon dioxide is responsible for huge natural disasters that have killed millions of people? The truth is, it’s actually the other way around: as CO2 has increased, deaths from extreme weather have decreased. Bet you’ll never see that in Al Gore’s slideshow.
But while An Inconvenient Book solves serious problems, it never takes itself too seriously. That’s why you’ll find Glenn’s rants on tipping, dating, and parenting right alongside chapters on the income gap, child molesters, and the United Nations (although it’s pretty hard to take the comedy out of the U.N.).
After 22 chapters, you’ll be shocked and saddened at how political correctness, special interests, and outright stupidity have trumped common sense. Unfortunately, you’ll probably still be laughing too hard to do anything about it.
