Island Mayor Explains Natural Erosion, Al Gore Gives Warped 'Science'

A commercial crabber of more than 50 years recently stumped Al Gore with a question about climate change.

“If sea level rise is occurring, why am I not seeing signs of it?” James “Ooker” Eskridge, a longtime crabber who is also mayor of Tangier Island, asked Gore at a CNN town hall on climate change. Tangier Island in Chesapeake Bay is gradually disappearing, something that Eskridge credited to ordinary erosion, not the rapidly rising sea levels predicated by climate change activists.

On radio Wednesday, Glenn listened to the Q&A fail and talked about other examples of erosion that occur in nature --- naturally.

“The cliffs of Dover weren’t always cliffs,” Glenn pointed out. Erosion is part of the natural world, not an environmental crisis. Cliffs erode, and rocks are turned into sand by the ocean. “That’s erosion,” he said.

Another example of erosion is the Grand Canyon, which was formed as the Colorado River gradually wore away the landscape, Stu noted.

“If only Al were here 150 million years ago!” Co-host Pat Gray joked.

GLENN: So I want to go to two places that people look to for credibility. And I just want to ask you: Which one has more credibility? Because I can't decide.

He's contestant number one. He used to be a vice president. He used to -- he and his wife used to lead an activist group against the -- the evils of rap lyrics. And now he's all about climate change. And here he is going to talk to a guy who is a 50-year crabber who has lived on the Chesapeake Bay. Now, what they're arguing about, so you know, is has sea level risen?

Now, just so you can put this into context, Al Gore claims that, yes, the sea level is rising. And we're all going to die of a fiery drowning death very soon.

PAT: It will be both fiery and downing --

GLENN: Both. It will be all of it.

PAT: It will. Uh-huh.

GLENN: It will be blizzard snows --

PAT: And drought.

GLENN: -- and -- and record heat. Okay? Both of them willing happening to us. And it will be a horrible, grisly death, all because of global climate change. And already -- sea levels have already risen an alarming rate. Now, what is that alarming rate? I want you to know. The width, the thinness of a dime is how much we're talking about in the rise of the sea level -- the thinness of a dime, which scientists have been able to measure by satellite, to tell us via satellite that the sea level has risen, the thinness of a dime. Now, here's a guy --

PAT: Right.

GLENN: A crabber. I mean, what does he know. And a mayor.

PAT: He's lived on this island in the Chesapeake Bay for 50 years. But come on.

GLENN: He's now able to talk to contestant number one. Yes, let me reveal him. He's the one, he's the only, Al Gore.

VOICE: I'm a commercial crabber, and I've been working the Chesapeake Bay for 50-plus years. And I have a crab house business out on the water. And water level is the same as it was when the place was built in 1970.

I'm not a scientist. But I'm a keen observer. And if sea level rise is occurring, why am I not seeing signs of it? I mean, our island is disappearing, but it's because of erosion and not sea level rise. Plus, we get a sea wall. We will lose our island. But back to the question, why am I not seeing signs of the sea level rise.

AL: What do you think the erosion is due to, Mayor?

VOICE: Wave action, storms.

AL: Has that increased any?

VOICE: Not really.

AL: So you're losing the island even though the waves haven't increased?

VOICE: Yes. This erosion has been going on since Captain John Smith discovered the island and named it. And it's gotten to our doorstep now and we focus on it more.

AL: Well, arguments about the science aren't necessarily going to be of any comfort to you. And I'm sorry for what you're going through.

GLENN: Okay. So stop for a second. Before I get to this, I just want you to know. You know, they're seeing erosion. What do you think that's caused by?

PAT: Waves.

GLENN: Waves.

PAT: Waves, you know.

GLENN: You know, I don't know if you know this, Al. But the cliffs of Dover weren't always cliffs. I know that's hard to understand, but it appears as though those cliffs have eroded. You know, sand wasn't always sand. It was rock. The black sand? That's because the land was volcanic rock. That's what makes it black.

Pink sand? Because it was coral. It wasn't always like that.

PAT: I'm telling you though, that's how dangerous this is.

GLENN: Coral was not always -- it's not pink sand. Look at the pretty pink sand. There were rocks. Waves beat over it for millions of years and break it down in various -- that's erosion.

PAT: Hmm.

GLENN: But...

STU: If we don't do something, we may have a hole that may turn into a canyon that may turn into a Grand Canyon.

PAT: If we don't stop the Colorado River, damn it, there's going to be a big hole in the ground.

GLENN: Wow. Wow.

STU: And look what happened.

PAT: If only Al were here 150 years ago, darn it.

STU: He's not quite that old.

GLENN: Okay. So now, he goes into his science explanation.

AL: Your neighbor is on Tangier Island. I read about you in the paper. There was an article in the Washington Post, I believe, after President Trump called you up. And won't necessarily do you any good to tell you that the scientists do say that the sea level is rising in the Chesapeake Bay and that you've lost about two-thirds of your island.

PAT: So what I'm telling you is -- and this may be a little bit demeaning, but you're too stupid to know you're being demeaned. You don't know what you're talking about.

GLENN: Right. And, by the way, that's a quote -- you know, it's a little demeaning to say this to them, but they're too stupid to understand.

PAT: To know they've been demeaned.

GLENN: That's a quote from Al Gore.

The thinness of a dime, the rise of sea level which, boy, that's a tough margin, huh? That margin of error is less than the thinness of a dime. That, yes, that's the reason why you've lost two-thirds of your island.

PAT: Of his island.

GLENN: Two-thirds of your island. And I just want you to know that experts agree.

PAT: Jeez.

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air — until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

BIGGER than Tiananmen Square? Here's what the China protests are REALLY about

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
