‘It’s not warming. It’s dying’: Glenn reacts to the latest climate change campaign

We are all familiar with the iconic ‘I love NY’ logo featuring the red heart. Milton Glaser is the graphic designer behind the seminal insignia, and his latest design is perhaps best described as simplistic.

As The Verge reports, Glaser has created an image of “a gradient green and black orb” that is supposed to represent the earth. Why? To raise awareness for climate change, of course.

The logo is part of a new campaign with the mantra: “It’s not warming. It’s dying.” According to the website, this is “the most important fact on earth,” and supporters can order buttons featuring the orb design.

“Send $5, we'll send you 5 buttons.
Wear one, give the others to those you love,” the site reads. “All proceeds go to distributing more buttons.
Even politicians will understand.
#itsnotwarming”

Below is a screenshot of the logo and catch phrase:

In an interview with Dezeen, Glaser said he hopes this campaign will have people “acknowledging what is real” when it comes to climate change.

"There is no more significant issue on earth than its survival," Glaser told Dezeen. "The questions is, 'how can anyone not be involved?'"

On radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Stu wondered if the subtlety of the design would ultimately hinder the campaign’s effectiveness.

“Now, what's unique about this button is it doesn't have any words or letters on it at all. It's just a black button with a little bit of green on the bottom,” Glenn observed. “It's not even like, ‘Ask me about my black and green button.’ It's just like a black and green button that nobody will ask you about… It looks like a mood button.”

“People will avoid you because they think you have a bad mood,” Pat quipped.

When you consider full on “climate chaos” is less than a year away, Glenn believes the hyperbolic nature of Glaser’s rhetoric is spot on.

“I think it works: ‘It's not warming. It's dying,’” Glenn concluded sarcastically. “Now, I don't think that's hyperbole. No, it's frighteningly accurate. Come on.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
