Science Writer Points out What We're All Thinking About Climate Change Experts

What’s going on?

It’s not just you – this winter has been unusually frigid. The low temperatures are making some climate change experts nervous because they kind of contradict the whole idea that the planet is warming.

How cold are we talking?

This winter has been so cold that in some cases, it’s turned deadly. The Associated Press has reported at least 12 deaths from the extreme cold. Some Georgia residents recently saw icicles for the first time, and Florida State University closed its Tallahassee campus because of the severe cold threat.

What’s the connection to climate change?

Australian science writer Joanne Nova recently wrote a tongue-in-cheek article pointing out that to climate change advocates, “this extreme cold is just weather, but all heat waves are climate change.” Why do global warming experts point to every heat wave as evidence while trying to ignore unusually cold winters that don’t fit their argument?

“Why don't you ever say [it’s just weather] about a heat wave?” Pat asked on today’s show while filling in for Glenn. He compared it to last year when people tried to say Hurricanes Harvey and Irma were evidence of climate change, ignoring the previous hurricane-free 12 years.

PAT: You know, we were just talking about the cold that has gripped about 90 percent of the country. In fact, 90 percent on New Year's Day -- 90 percent of the nation didn't get to the freezing level, didn't get to 32. That is crazy.

JEFFY: That sure is.

PAT: That, of course, that means global warming to the global warming scientists. An Australian science writer has just -- she wrote this article and she noticed what I think many of us have noticed for years now. She said, for the radical climate crowd, extreme cold is just weather. But all heat we've seen are climate change. Isn't that the truth?

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: While heat waves and extreme weather events are routinely pointed to as indications of global warming trends, the coldest weather in over a century that we're having right now, eh, that's the natural variability of the weather cycle. Yeah, things change. Of course, it's going to get cold sometimes. That's what we tell you about the heat. Why don't you ever say that about a heat wave?

Well, yeah, that happens. It always happens. We've always had heat waves. It's why some of the records we have are from 1932. But every single -- like you mentioned, we used to be told all the time, oh, don't confuse weather with climate. Because you can't do that. So any weather-related event like a storm or a heat wave, that's just one day or a couple of day cycle thing. But climate is over a period of time.

Then all of a sudden every single heat wave that happened, see. Science. It's global warming. Every hurricane that happened. See, that's global warming.

JEFFY: There it is. There it is.

PAT: Then they fell silent during the 12 years of no hurricanes hitting the US mainland.

And then all of a sudden, a few do. And, of course, that's global warming.

Just unreal.

Glenn responds to COVID advisor suggesting Americans should’ve sacrificed more

Former senior COVID advisor for the Biden administration, Andy Slavitt, said during an interview with CBS' 'This Morning' on Monday that he believes Americans could have 'sacrificed a little bit more' during the pandemic. So, was losing 40 percent of American small businesses or skyrocketing depression among teens not sacrifice enough?!

Bill O’Reilly: ‘INSANE’ how badly Kamala & Biden handled border crisis

Vice President Kamala Harris — tasked by President Biden to handle the current border crisis — is currently on, what Bill O'Reilly calls, 'the befuddlement tour.' So not only has Joe Biden ruined the border situation beyond repair, O'Reilly explains, he's now also chosen somebody who seemingly is incapable of solving problems to fix the problem. O'Reilly says it's 'INSANE' how badly they've handled this situation and that it's time for Americans to take a stand, show the government some backlash, and finally say 'enough!'

Biden's Hostile Takeover: The Great Reset of America

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.
