Glenn Beck: Obama wants your thermostat

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We’ll restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama’s passion for everything science.

GLENN: The climate czar, Carol Browner, wants your thermostat. Thank God for science — no, I’m sorry. Got to put science back in her place. Thank science for science. We the American people can now rest easy. Obama’s climate czar, not kidding, not making it up, somebody he appoints as a czar is a former leader in the Socialist International group, a group that advocates one world government, that Carol Browner. Carol Browner is out there giving media interviews now and compared to how clumsy the Obama administration looks on the economy, they are crystal clear on the environment. Czar Browner enlightened the readers of U.S. News and World Report, a fantastic magazine that people may or may not read, U.S. News and World Report questioned: How much have attitudes shifted on climate change? Stu, can you give me the real answer? Give me that tomorrow, will you? I’d like the real answers on these. How much have attitudes shifted on climate change? Czar Browner says, I think first of all that the science has just become incredibly clear that the impacts are real, that they will be real and we need to do something right away. We need to make sure that we’re moving electricity in the smartest way — listen to this — and using the most cost effective electricity at the right time of day. Eventually we can get to a system where an electric company will be able to hold back some of the power so that your air conditioner won’t operate at its peak.

Do you remember when the people that were all around Obama said that people like me were crazy and just conspiracy theorists and, oh, well, you’re just, they’re never going to try to control the thermostat in your home; that’s crazy. Only in an emergency. Quote: Eventually we can get to a system where an electric company will be able to hold back some of the power so maybe your air conditioner won’t operate at its peak. Can’t wait for that. I can’t wait for the 97 degree day in August when Czar Browner in Washington decides it’s in my country’s best interest to make sure I’m not cooling my house. And, of course, they are going to know which houses are sufficiently cooled and, you know, when they cut them back, when they cut back the power, nothing could wrong there like in 2003 when 30,000 people died in a two-week heat wave. Nothing like that could happen. I mean, the government is definitely going to know which houses have old people in them and need them to be cooler and which ones don’t have old people. They are going to need to know, they will know exactly which ones have little children in them as well or people who just got out of the hospital or whatever, they’ll know that because they are going to control all of our medical records and they will know exactly who’s in the house. Oh, and by the way, if you want to sell your house, they are also going to have your fingerprints as well. So they will know exactly who is where. There’s no way the government would turn down the air conditioning at the wrong place and kill someone. I mean, you know, that just doesn’t — the only thing that has become incredibly clear on the science of climate change is that they can’t decide whether to call it global warming or call it climate change. She also says we need to do something, which means of course we need to implement one of my favorite socialist ideas, cap and trade, which is already failing in Europe. Quote: There’s a long history of the government making decisions and creating opportun ities for business — there is a long history of the government making decisions and creating opportunities for businesses, and I think you’ve got a growing number of businesses in this arena that understand that. Yes, yes, businesses realize what big overreaching governments do to them and that’s why they are preparing for the taxation onslaught by hemorrhaging jobs like crazy. Of course, the big, big, big corporations like GE, well, they’ve put their lobbyists in gear. So they know that you’re not going to pass anything that will hurt them, but everybody else. Czar Browner saved the best for last, though. She gave us a glimpse into our glorious future under her socialism where government knows better than you.
