Speaking in Washington before a meeting with Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius started the countdown to “climate chaos.”
“We have 500 days to avoid the climate chaos,” Fabius said in French.
After Kerry asked if Fabius would like to say anything in English, he spoke briefly about Iran, Syria, and Ukraine before returning to the climate change topic.
“And very important issues, issue of climate change, climate chaos,” the foreign minister said. “And we have – as I said, we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos, and I know that President Obama and John Kerry himself are committed on this subject and I’m sure that with them, with a lot of other friends, we shall be able to reach success on this very important matter.”
On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to Fabius’ dire warning – explaining that we must point out the lunacy of the climate change fear mongers in order to ensure these arguments do not gain credence.
“The French foreign minister has started the countdown Tuesday to the climate change disaster… You laugh, but your days are numbered,” Glenn said. “I want a countdown clock on the show. I want to be able to [illustrate] 499 days to climate chaos. And I mean this sincerely… We could put this up on GlennBeck.com.”
As Stu pointed out, the left has spent years criticizing and mocking Glenn for what they consider to be his doomsday, apocalyptic approach, and yet you don’t see anyone poking fun at the French Foreign Minister starting a countdown to global chaos.
“This is what they used to do to you. They used to say, ‘He's apocalyptic.’ ‘He's doom and gloom,’” Stu explained. “When these guys can come out and say all of civilization is at an immediate risk – Al Gore was saying it's already here. So I don't know where this guy gets his optimistic timeline of 500 days. I would say this guy is a ‘flat earther’ compared to what Al Gore was saying the other day. He was saying it's already here, it's already happening.”
Glenn explained the global warming, climate change, climate chaos argument has been relatively successful over the years because the message – whether it is true or not – is constantly reinforced until people have no choice but to accept it.
“Why doesn't anybody think that this is effective? You just keep saying it enough and people will believe it. You just keep saying it enough and people will [believe it],” Glenn said. “People don't push back anymore. People don't mock them… If you don't make it into a joke, it becomes real.”
Whether it is with your children at home or your colleagues at work, people must begin to point out the insanity of this climate argument before it becomes commonplace.
“If you you don't make it into a joke in your own home with your own kids, it will become real. They're going to school and they are hearing this nonsense,” Glenn concluded. “Climate chaos? What are you talking about? Explain what happened to the damn dinosaurs. Explain what happened to the ice age. Climate chaos? Where was man during the ice age? Where was he? Was he in his SUV? Was he using too many fossil fuels? No. How exactly did this happen? Climate chaos? Mock them.”
