‘Climate Denial’ a Crime? Canada Investigated 3 Groups Accused of Making These Claims

Are we closer to a world where questioning climate change is illegal?

A Canadian agency spent more than a year investigating three organizations accused of “denying mainstream climate science.” An environmental group had complained about Friends of Science, the International Climate Science Coalition, and the Heartland Institute. The organizations were accused of making “misleading” claims, including pointing to the sun as a huge factor in climate change and saying that carbon dioxide isn’t a pollutant.

While the government has stopped poking around for now, the investigation could start up again if more people bring forward information, AKA accuses the groups of being “climate deniers.”

Pat and Stu looked at the Orwellian story and then discussed some easily debunked points about global warming using some handy hurricane data from the past 50 years.

PAT: Do you know in Canada, they're also investigating climate denial? People who deny climate change are going to be investigated now.

So there's -- there's another thing that's coming to fruition.

JEFFY: You're darn right it is.

PAT: Is this politically correct viewpoint is now so entrenched, that if you don't subscribe to it, you could be investigated by law enforcement and perhaps eventually arrested and charged with it. It's just not that outrageous to think that could happen now.

JEFFY: It is not.

PAT: You better get on board with climate change, or we're going to put you in jail.

JEFFY: You pooh-pooh the congressmen and the senators that are crazy, and they say that at town halls, and they say that these people -- that it should happen. You say, eh, that will never happen. It's coming. They're going to try.

STU: Well, and here's the thing: If you actually go by the definition of, let's say Al Gore, you're going to find not just evil conservatives like ourselves, but the overwhelming majority of the people in the United States of America.

PAT: Right.

STU: Because what you have to believe, if you are Al Gore is not only is climate change happening. You have to believe that it is almost entirely or entirely man made. You also have to believe that it is catastrophic. And you also must believe that the government must take massive action to control the energy supply here in the United States. Because even if you believe the first three and you get to that last one, you say, you know what, I just think maybe the free market would be best at this. Or, maybe we should just like look at some -- you know, hopefully these companies can innovate. And we can create that.

PAT: Denier! Denier!

STU: You're a denier, unless you say absolutely without question to all of those things. For example, you also have to say that hurricanes are becoming more frequent, even though the science itself says they're becoming less frequent. Even though that's going on. Even though the NOAA actually says -- NOAA says that there is no indication in the last 120 years of any increase when it comes to hurricanes, at all, that is tied to man-made climate change, you still have to believe the opposite of those scientists.

PAT: Isn't there something we can do about NOAA? Can we not shut down that organization?

JEFFY: Or start telling people the truth. Can we, I don't know, bomb the organization?

STU: Is it Breitbart or is it NOAA? These bastards. It's so incredible.

PAT: It is. Because you could be reasonable and say, "Sure. I agree it's a little warmer than it was. But that's happened a million times." Well, that, you're a denier. You could also say, I think it's happened. And it's our fault.

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: However, it's a good thing because there's going to be more food that grows because it's a little bit warmer. And it's not a problem. You're still a denier. That's not enough. You have to go with the catastrophic thing. And you also have to agree to --

STU: With the government action to solve the catastrophic thing. Because if you believe catastrophic consequences, but believe we should do something else about it, you're also a denier.

And, again, when it comes to the hurricanes -- because this is what happened. Stevie Wonder did this, right? Stevie Wonder was on stage at this hurricane benefit and tied hurricanes to man made global warming.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: We now have 50 years of global hurricane data. There is no trend in the frequency or number of storms that reach hurricane force. This is from the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at NOAA. Which I know you want to shut down NOAA. But listen to them for just a moment. Because I know everybody -- I know when I see Pat, a lot of times, he'll open his computer. I'll be standing behind him, and his home page will open up. It's almost always the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory.

PAT: It's my home page.

STU: It is your home page. You have -- when you email Pat, you can email him at Pat@GeophysicalFluidDynamicsLaboratory.net.

PAT: There's an ampersand in there. I don't know why. I don't know why.

(laughter)

STU: But it says -- this is a report they released -- not in 1912. Not 15 years ago. Not ten years ago, but August 31st of this year, as we led up to Hurricane Harvey and Irma --

PAT: Oh, my gosh, Stu, that's pathetic. How old were you August 31st of this year? Come on now.

STU: The same age I am currently. That's how old. Because it was just a few days ago. Okay?

STU: Oh.

JEFFY: Are you trying to make the case that Stevie Wonder saw this?

PAT: He did not see it.

STU: I don't think he did see it. He didn't see it. You know why? Because he doesn't choose to read the Geophysical Fluid Laboratory -- the Dynamics Laboratory material. It's not one of his main sources. That's why he can't see it. There may be another reason too. I don't know.

PAT: He should have them as his home page, like I have.

STU: There you go.

This is what they wrote: In summary, neither our model projections for the 21st century, nor our analysis of trends in the Atlantic hurricane and tropical storm counts over the past 120 years support the notion that greenhouse gas-induced warming leads to large increases in either tropical storm or overall hurricane numbers in the Atlantic.

I don't know how -- they are saying not only does it not confirm it, it's not consensus. They're saying, it does not support the notion.

JEFFY: Period. Yeah.

STU: Period.

PAT: And yet, we're the freaks. We're the haters. We're the irresponsible people who deny science.

STU: Yeah. And what do you like that, when there's an investigation going on? Because Al Gore tells you that you have to believe that there's going to be more brutal storms. And these people that keep coming out saying, "Oh, well, look, it's obvious. Look at these hurricanes. You got both Irma and you got Harvey. It's terrible. Of course you got to believe global warming."

So we believe the last few weeks, but not the last 12 years? It's insane. They will jump through any hoop to prove this right. And because they know if people believe it and people come along on this -- and I think the younger generations show real signs that they do believe a lot of these things, and if they believe it, they will be able to control everything. They will be able to control every piece of the economic landscape in the United States of America. Because once you control power, you can do anything. If you can push around century like that, and you can justify any change in regulation based on the idea that global has to be solved and we're the only ones that can solve it, man, that's a lot of power.

It's the same thing we're seeing with this stuff with Title 9 at colleges with these rape accusations. And Betsy DeVos did a speech about this. And she made all these crazy claims about all these, you know -- kids were going through this in college. And all these crazy rape accusations. Every one of them that she made happened. All the crazy stories she made happened. And it's because we have accepted, generally speaking, as a society, this society that 90 percent of men that go to college are rapists. So because there's a, quote, unquote, rape culture, you can justify any action. Of course, we all want to stop brutal rapes. Of course, we do. So you can justify any action. Any dismissal of First Amendment rights of do you process. Any of that can be dismissed. Because we have this much larger thing that we have to address. Which is our rape culture. Or global warming. Whatever it is. Once you get those things set in motion, you can do anything with them. And that is the plan of the left. I do think there are scientists who believe this could be bad. I do think there's a lot of people who do think that it could be bad. I do think there's some evidence that shows that we have warmed.

PAT: It's not 97 percent, though, I'll tell you that.

STU: It's certainly not 97 percent. Also, Al Gore does not care if that's true. He does not care if one scientist believes it's accurate. He does this because he wants control and to personally enrich himself at this point. But, yes, he probably does believe it. But it's immaterial to what he's doing. He just wants to be able to control large swaths of the United States economy. And not him personally. But his movement.

PAT: You know what I think this diatribe of yours is all about?

STU: What?

PAT: Jealousy. I think you're jealous that is talented enough to write something as beautiful as this.

VOICE: One thin September soon, a floating continent disappears in the midnight sun. Vapors rise, as fever settles on an acid sea. Neptune's bones dissolve. Snow glides from the mountain. Ice fathers floods for a season. Hard rain comes quickly. Then dirt is parched. Kindling is placed in the forest for the lightning celebration. Unknown creatures take their leave unmourned. Horses ready their stirrups. Passion seeks heroes and friends. The bell on the city on the hill is rung. The shepherd cries, the hour of choosing has arrived. Here are your tools.

PAT: Here are your tools.

STU: That is one of the worst things I've ever heard in my entire life.

I cannot believe a person would go on television and say those words in that order that way.

JEFFY: And got praised for it, by the way.

PAT: Oh, listen to this.

VOICE: I'm so glad you read that. That was really --

VOICE: Thanks for asking me.

VOICE: I'm happy to hear --

JEFFY: Thank you for asking me.

PAT: And he went home and he wept.

JEFFY: No one ever asked me to say these words in public before. Thank you.

'The Handmaid's Tale' got it right, just with the wrong religion

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images

Just in case The Handmaid's Tale's heavy-handed message wasn't already heavy-handed enough, a recent episode made it clear there's always room for further hysteria. Particularly, in relation to depictions of a “patriarchal society" run by Christian doctrine and determined by men — oh those dastardly men.

RELATED: Christian privilege is the new white privilege

The show appropriates Margaret Atwood of the same name, depicting a totalitarian society led by Christian doctrine in which women's bodies are controlled, and they have no rights. The story sounds familiar, but not in the same way Atwood and the show's creators have so smugly assumed.

Just as tone-deaf as 4th wave feminism itself, and tone-deaf in all the exact same places. Most notably, the show's heavy-handed indignation toward Christianity. Toward the patriarchy. Toward conservatives and traditional values. And just like 4th wave feminism, the show completely overlooks the irony at play. Because there is a part of the world where women and children are being raped and mutilated. In fact, in this very real place, the women or girls are often imprisoned, even executed, for being raped, and they are mutilated in unspeakable ways.

Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life.

There is a place, a very real place, where women are forced to cover their entire bodies with giant tarp-like blankets, which is all the more brutal given the endless heat of this place. There is a place where women literally have one-third of the rights of men, a place where women are legally, socially and culturally worth less than men.

They cannot drive cars. They cannot be outside alone. They cannot divorce, they cannot even choose who they marry and often, they are forcibly married at a young age.

They are raped. A lot. Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life. This is the life of tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of women. And, I'll tell you, their religion isn't Christianity.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

RELATED: Changes in technology can be cause for concern, but THIS is amazing

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.
