REPORT: Horses Will Be the Size of Cats, Because Climate Change

Walt Disney was a true visionary, a man ahead of his time. According to the Daily Mail, climate scientists say it is, after all, going to be a small world. Heat will cause mammals to shrink in size, making animals like the horse as small as a cat. Glenn excitedly pondered the possibilities.

RELATED: Could Climate Change Cause Humans and Animals to Shrink?

"If we can stay our size --- we have to figure out how to stay our size --- because we could get monkeys and sell them as a barrel of monkeys as the actually monkeys. Wouldn't that be cool if you could sell for kids, the actual barrel of monkeys?"

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

GLENN: This comes from the Daily Mail or telegraph. Scientists are now saying, because of -- I'm not making this up -- scientists are now saying, because of global warming, mammals will shrink, and in this article they speak about horses the size of cats. I'm not making this up. Look it up yourself. Mammals, the size -- horses the size of cats.

PAT: There are some benefits to that. It would end all rodeos. Are a thing of the past.

GLENN: Whoa. That why you're a science denier? Because you want to end all rodeos?

PAT: I'm working on it.

GLENN: I worry about about the rodeos. I like the rodeos.

STU: What about the rodeos --

PAT: The horses would be too small.

STU: You can't ride it anymore at your current size. But wouldn't we also shrink? I mean why wouldn't we shrink too? I think at the same pace.

GLENN: Now, this is -- why did you bring this up, because you're such a pessimist? If you look at this, if we and the animals shrink, we now have plenty of space for the people that are going to be born on the -- for space for them to live. Think of the farm size that people the size of horses need.

STU: That's true.

GLENN: People the size of cats, or we would be the size of pugs -- no, we would have to be smaller than the pug. If the horses were the size of cats --

PAT: We'd be about the size of mice. Maybe? That opens up a lot of room on the planet.

GLENN: Are you kidding me? That may be God's plan. There is, like, God wouldn't have made us if -- we're going to run out of space. There it is. We shrink.

PAT: We shrink.

JEFFY: I don't know about you, but even if we don't shrink, I'm not walking. I'm going to find something else to ride. I'm going to find some other species to ride.

STU: I'm surprised you would be so antiwalking. It's so against your character.

(Laughter.)

GLENN: I think it would be great. I hope I can stay big. I'm going to put myself -- Walt Disney may be the only person who doesn't shrink in size.

STU: Because he's frozen.

GLENN: He's frozen.

PAT: He would melt.

GLENN: It would be like land of the giants or the small -- whatever. Gulliver's Travels, except it would be Walt Disney. The freezer would open up, and be -- everybody would be small. That would be cool, because it's a small world after all.

STU: He was telling us in advance!

GLENN: He knew in advance.

STU: And people will mock this and say it's silly that horses will be the size of cats and it's a scare tactic, but the science is solid on this. Think about it. Shrinky-dinks. What happens? You put them in the oven, and they shrink. It's about as good evidence as you're going to have on this, and I think it proves the point.

PAT: When you cook meat, doesn't it shrink?

STU: Weight before cooking --

GLENN: I think horses the size of cats would be cool.

JEFFY: I think so too.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. If we can stay our size, we have to figure out how to stay our size. Because we could get monkeys and sell them as a barrel of monkeys as the actually monkeys. Wouldn't that be cool if you could sell for kids, the actual barrel of monkeys?

PAT: That they're real, they're actually monkeys.

GLENN: Plastic monkeys. What?

JEFFY: Wasn't that one of the original Toy Story plans?

GLENN: Right. They were real monkeys. And who made that? Disney! Oh, my gosh. He was telling us.

STU: They were telling us in advance. That's incredible.

(Laughter.)

This might be fun for children but not as much fun for the monkeys. However, would it be fun for children if children were that small? That's the issue. You got to solve that. And --

GLENN: -- children, small monkeys. Small monkeys would be fun.

STU: You know how we do this? We have air conditioning. We stay, nice 72 degrees, and at the same time.

GLENN: We're heating the planet up.

STU: And making it worse with global warming.

GLENN: To they would be smaller monkeys. We do not want monkeys the size of ants.

STU: No. They'll be all over the place.

GLENN: And would not be able to get them. They would in your hair and crawling out over everything. You need monkeys the size of mice.

STU: I'm worried about bugs becoming nanotechnology.

PAT: It's mammals, not bugs. The bugs are fine.

GLENN: Imagine a praying mantis/monkey fight.

STU: Wait a minute. This is horrible. They're going to stay the same size.

GLENN: Wait. Think of the movies we could make, all of those movies that need, like, the little claymation things. If we had actual monkeys and spires remain the same size. A spider/monkey fight would be unbelievable.

STU: Think this out. If the spiders are a giant size to humans, that in real life, not just in the movies, they're giant size to humans, they rule the earth. If they don't shrink and we do, we're screwed. They're already all over the place.

GLENN: That is the case too.

STU: We're dead.

GLENN: Only mammals shrink.

STU: It's the shrinky-dink principle. Well nope in science.

GLENN: And fish would rule the world.

STU: Fish would rule the world?

GLENN: Fish, and they would rule the under -- the water --

STU: They already rule the seas. They're already there.

GLENN: Come on. You can take on a fish.

STU: A fish. One monkey, or one horse trampled a person. However, horses aren't taking over the planet.

JEFFY: But the whales are becoming supergroups.

GLENN: Maybe the whales know. We'll learn that this week too that scientists are saying that supergroups of whales are starting to gather. Maybe they know. That we are going to be the size of monkeys, which will be the size of mice.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: And we ride to our death in the sees.

PAT: I think we've explored just about every possibility now.

(Laughter.)

GLENN: How -- seriously. How did they write that story? In the Daily Mail?

PAT: So ridiculous.

GLENN: How do scientists actually come out and say, horses the size of cats? With a straight face. Come on.

PAT: Even if you go at 4 degrees as they're predicting in the next hundred years. It's not going to happen. That is not going to happen. You're not going to have horses the size of cats.

GLENN: Really? Are you -- are you a scientist?

PAT: Yes. On this --

JEFFY: Not tomorrow.

GLENN: Listen about a 0.7 degree temperature change for a thousand or maybe 5,000 years.

JEFFY: Now what?

GLENN: Who will be laughing then?

The Truth Behind the 5G Airline Hysteria | Brendan Carr | Ep 130

The rollout of 5G has begun across the country … except at airports. Rumors are everywhere that the new 5G networks could cause massive — and deadly — disruptions to air traffic. But is this a factual fear, or does it belong in the same bucket as the billion other conspiracy theories surrounding 5G? Population control, invisible propaganda, hundreds of birds that die all at once, wavelengths that microwave your brain ... And what about the less far-fetched concerns about what 5G could usher in: Increased Big Tech monitoring, ESG scores, the metaverse? Since President Biden isn’t doing anything to calm America’s fears, Glenn sits down with FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr to cut through the noise and separate fact from fiction. Yes, Carr explains, there is a lot to be concerned about. But he also details why he’s so optimistic about the potential a 5G-powered world could have.

WATCH: The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Explaining Washington’s rumored FORCED QUARANTINE law

Despite what the mainstream media may say, on January 12 Glenn DID fact-check a claim he made on Tucker Carlson about a rumored Washington law that could force citizens to quarantine or isolate. In this clip, Glenn clarifies his original statement, explaining that the law in question has been on Washington books since 2003 and therefore is NOT a result of the COVID pandemic. But Glenn also explains the more concerning context he — and those in the mainstream media — missed too: the fact that this law didn’t seem too farfetched for Washington citizens should be VERY concerning to us all.

Follow THESE 8 STEPS so we can REVIVE our republic

It’s a new year, and every new year comes with New Year's resolutions. This is when we resolve to lose weight, join a gym, or finally read those books on our shelves. For many of us, the New Year's resolution has become a kind of joke, because deep down, we know the new diet won’t stick and that reading a book a day isn’t really sustainable. The real issue is that we usually create resolutions that are too idealistic and broad, like, “Be healthy.” When it comes time to deliver on those resolutions, we don’t know what to do, so we quit.

But the idea of resolutions is still a good one. It is good to set new and better goals for ourselves. The secret is keeping them attainable.

You will hear many people, like me, tell you that 2022 is the year to save the American republic. Well, that is a great idea, but what do we actually DO to make that happen?

I know this audience is already resolved to save America, so I want to offer you some specific, actionable ways to do that.

Here are some “Practical Steps to Revive the Republic.” It is by no means a fully comprehensive list. We will find a broad array of ways to save our nation. This list is a jumping-off point for the New Year for folks like us who love this country.

Practical Steps to Revive the Republic

1. Get married and have a family.

Mother Teresa said, “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”

Family is the first system of government we enter. It is where we are taught the virtues necessary for self-government. Children denied love and guidance when they are young struggle to successfully enter society, let alone the reality of their own lives. We call them “mal-adjusted.”

Ronald Reagan addressed the nation in 1986, saying:

“Consider, for example, that the philosopher-historians Will and Ariel Durant called the family ‘the nucleus of civilization.’ They understood that all those aspects of civilized life that we most deeply cherish — freedom, the rule of law, economic prosperity and opportunity — that all these depend upon the strength and integrity of the family. If you think about it, you'll see that it's in the family that we must all learn the fundamental lesson of life — right and wrong, respect for others, self-discipline, the importance of knowledge, and, yes, a sense of our own self-worth. All of our lives, it's the love of our families that sustains us when times are hard. And it is perhaps above all to provide for our children that we work and save.

“Some have suggested that in today's world, the family has somehow become less important. Well, I can't help thinking just the opposite: that when so much around us is whispering the little lie that we should live only for the moment and for ourselves, it's more important than ever for our families to affirm an older and more lasting set of values.”

If you are concerned about the fall of the American republic, remember that liberty is always just a generation away from success or demise, and the children we raise make all of the difference.

2. Tell the truth.

“When you have something to say, silence is a lie.” –Jordan B. Peterson

Lying is really easy. It seems to take the mess of the present and push it into the future. But lying makes the world like a mine field of constructed reality – one wrong step and it will all blow up. To maintain a lie costs the liar in consciousness, attention, and productivity. Enough lies make you useless. Useless people have very little capacity for self-government.

In 2021, we rightly pointed out, “The media lies!” “The politicians lie!” “The doctors lie!” “The celebrities lie!”

But if we lie too, can we expect better from them? If we are silent in the face of lies, when we KNOW they are lies, then how can we expect things to improve?

If we each agreed to stop lying and to tell the truth today, can you imagine how much better tomorrow could be? Theodore Dalrymple, the pen name of the English writer and psychiatrist, said it perfectly: “When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.” We have to embrace and promote a way of life worthy of liberty – and that starts with me, you, and all of us.

3. Study history and read old books.

There is nothing new under the sun. It’s likely that the struggles of today were deliberated years ago by our ancestors. Perhaps they have some good ideas worth considering. We won’t know unless we study them. The American system of government was revolutionary not because the founders were somehow superhuman (although God was clearly with them) but because they embraced the lessons of the past. If you think practically, looking at the future is impossible, but moving into the future, regardless of where you look, is inevitable. The only concrete information we have is in the past. If you are being presented with a “new idea,” check with the past first to see how that idea will play out. If you love the American republic, study it. If you want to navigate the future, read old books.

4. Own. Don’t rent.

Many of us likely watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” over the holidays. This movie makes an explicit case for the correlation between home ownership and human dignity. The greedy villain. Mr. Potter, wants to keep the people of the town in his rental apartments and is threatened by the movie's protagonist, George Bailey, whose Bailey Building and Loan business is helping people own their own homes.

Home ownership matters. Not only does it set you on the path toward true self-reliance and out of the grips of the “Mr. Potters” of the world, but it also creates local buy-in, which makes our communities stronger. A 2001 Harvard study found:

“Strong and consistent evidence indicates that homeowners are more likely to:

a) be satisfied with their homes and neighborhoods;

b) participate in voluntary and political activities; and

c) stay in their homes longer, contributing to neighborhood stability.

To be metaphorical: It turns out that when we put down roots, we care more about the local soil. But right now, we are seeing the death of home ownership in exchange for perpetual renting. Even people with the financial capacity to buy a home are forgoing it for the ease of renting. But if we want to save our republic, we have to tend to our local communities. We have to take ownership over where we live.

Before our Declaration spoke about “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” John Locke was talking about the natural rights of life, liberty, and property. When he said “property,” he was talking about the holistic ownership a man can have over his destiny. The right to own property is about self-determination. In essence, it is about the right to own yourself – to own your destiny.

If you can buy a home, do it. If not, take on the mentality of a homeowner in your community, not a passerby.

Whenever possible, own, don’t rent.

5. Dump the tea into the sea.

Over the past two years, the government has grabbed at power like a drunken man in a strip club, losing all decorum, restraint, and sense of place in the greater society. But what is more disturbing is that we complied. After “15 days to slow the spread,” we stayed unnecessarily locked down physically, emotionally, and financially for almost two years.

Remember the last time kings tried to hold us down? I’m not saying to turn to violence. I am saying we should just start saying “no” to the government overreach – PEACEFULLY, respectfully, and deliberately.

Thomas Jefferson said, “The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive.”

Maybe the lovers of the American republic need to start getting into, as the left loves to say, “good trouble.”

6. Know your rights AND your responsibilities.

We all love talking about our rights. In fact, the word “rights” is being conflated with a narcissistic tendency to think we deserve the whole world to conform to our way of life. Yet our inalienable rights are eroded every day. If you haven’t read our founding documents, now is the time. We can’t protect rights that we can’t define or are ignorant of. But along with rights come responsibilities. We are accustomed to turning to the government to solve everything – to heal all of our “boo-boos.” It’s reflexive at this point.

“There are so many poor people ... I’ll call my senator!”

Yes, the government has a role in general welfare, but the government is bad at solving most problems. I would love to hear a politician, when asked about an issue, say, “Yes, I agree that is a problem, but the government should not be the one to solve it.”

Can you imagine?

There are plenty of issues in our communities – plenty of people who need help. We have to start helping them. Knowing the government will “help the poor” and lock them in cycles of poverty, we need to develop other solutions in our own communities. There are many important issues to address. We have forgotten whose job it is to address them. When we fail to love our neighbors, the government steps in as a poor and destructive substitute.

7. Say “republic” more than “democracy.”

You can’t turn on the news without someone telling you about the fragility of our “democracy.” In President Biden's Inauguration Day speech, he broke the record for the number of times the word “democracy” was used in an inaugural address. When politicians call for abolishing the Electoral College, they call it “undemocratic.” A Pew Research study found that 58% of U.S. adults think the Constitution should be amended so that the presidential candidate who receives the most votes nationwide wins. This would no doubt make America more democratic. But America is not a democracy. We don’t live in a democracy for good reason. The founders understood that “majority” does not mean “right.” That isn’t to say our founders didn't infuse our system with the best of the democratic values, but they ultimately decided in favor of a new system – a very delicate order of checks and balances and delegated power and representation. This was to provide protection against the whims of faction or, as we call it today, “the mob.” It’s the leaders of our modern mob who love to exchange the word republic, which is what we really are, for democracy. Words have meanings. Many young Americans believe they live in a democracy. When discussing America, make sure to use the word republic.

Federalist No. 10

From this view of the subject it may be concluded that a pure democracy, by which I mean a society consisting of a small number of citizens, who assemble and administer the government in person, can admit of no cure for the mischiefs of faction. A common passion or interest will, in almost every case, be felt by a majority of the whole; a communication and concert result from the form of government itself; and there is nothing to check the inducements to sacrifice the weaker party or an obnoxious individual. Hence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths. Theoretic politicians, who have patronized this species of government, have erroneously supposed that by reducing mankind to a perfect equality in their political rights, they would, at the same time, be perfectly equalized and assimilated in their possessions, their opinions, and their passions. A republic, by which I mean a government in which the scheme of representation takes place, opens a different prospect, and promises the cure for which we are seeking.

8. Learn from people you disagree with.

Perhaps this needs no explanation. We have so much we can learn from each other in the honest pursuit of truth. Our forefathers didn’t ensure our freedoms of conscience and association for nothing.

Here's how the conversation went on radio Thursday:
