Glenn Beck: Global Warming Petition Project


See the actual petition and signatures...

GLENN: 888-727-BECK. 888-727-BECK. I want to switch gears here for just a second because there's new information coming out now about the Oregon treaty. This is a treaty that was originally signed by I think 17,000 scientists. Signed by about 17,000 scientists and it was basically saying, you know, let's not get into any kind of Kyoto treaty and CO2 may actually be good. Signed by 17,000. There were discrepancies in it. They were like, oh, look, there were some fake names and there's some, what was it, fake names and repeats. Not true. There was a Perry Mason there, but the scientist name is really Perry Mason. There was Michael Fox, but it wasn't Michael J. Fox. It was really a scientist named Michael Fox. And who was the third one, Stu? Oh, yeah, and -- what did you say? Yeah, it was a Spice Girl and that was the only one that was on there that shouldn't have been.

Well, there's some new news on this treaty that has been signed by 17,000, and Art is not with us. Art has been dropped.

STU: Looks like we lost him.

GLENN: So let's get Art back on the phone.

STU: This is typical, it's the typical sort of throw the baby out with the bathwater. You've got all these scientists who have looked at this information and have signed onto this petition. It's just thrown away because there's one fake name on it. You know, it's typical to try to demean the other side.

GLENN: So he is -- Arthur Robinson carries out laboratory research on the deamidation of peptides and proteins which I almost got into. I was thinking I was going to do that or this, but I was really into the peptide analytical research.

STU: It was broadcasting or the peptides?

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: I mean, don't -- I don't want to say anything but, you know, you chose wrong.

GLENN: Is this guy --

STU: He's on now.

GLENN: Oh, he's on now? Art? Art?

ROBINSON: Yes.

GLENN: Arthur, how are you, sir?

ROBINSON: Fine, how are you?

GLENN: Very good. Glad to have you on the program. Tell me the new information here about how many signatures now are part of the treaty?

ROBINSON: Well, we have 31,000 signatures. 9,000 of them have Ph.D. degrees in the relevant sciences and they make two statements. One: That there is no convincing scientific evidence that humans are causing any climate change and that it would be a big mistake to make treaties and agreements to limit carbon dioxide emissions. In fact, they state that carbon dioxide emissions are good for the environment because they stimulate the growth of plants and lead to more plants and animals.

GLENN: See, that's the only thing I haven't understood because when I was growing up, we learned in school that carbon dioxide, we breathe it out and the trees breathe it in. That it was --

ROBINSON: That's right.

GLENN: -- kind of a circle of life thing.

ROBINSON: That's right. And the increase, the increase in the -- the most important substances for life are carbon dioxide, water and oxygen. And when you increase the carbon dioxide, you fertilize plants, you get tree growth, the rainforests are growing faster, American forests are growing faster, all the plants around us are growing measure ably faster. There are thousands of research papers showing this. And this, we believe, is a good environmental effect. And since there's no climate effect that's been observed of any kind, this is really good for the planet. It's an unexpected gift from the Industrial Revolution.

GLENN: Hold it just a second. I have never heard any place ever before that American forests are growing faster, that the rainforests are growing -- never. Have you, Stu? Have you ever heard that on any media source ever before? Where do you get that information?

ROBINSON: The media doesn't talk about it. I get it from the research literature at the petitionproject.org. You'll see the review article that this is based upon and we have 31,000 scientists, including 9,000 Ph.D.s who have signed the petition based on it because they know it's true. This is well known research. It's just that you don't hear it in the media because it's not something they want the people to know.

GLENN: I was explaining to my daughter. She's in college and she said, "Dad, tell me about cap and trade." She said, "Why are we doing that? How does it help?" I said, it doesn't help, honey, it's redistributing wealth. That's all it is. It is a way for governments to earn money. It is a tax. That's all it is. Is there anything to cap and trade at all? Is there anything to these selling of the carbon units to cap the amount of carbon that is in the atmosphere?

ROBINSON: Yes, it's one of the most egregious attempts at infringement on human rights that we've been faced with. People have a right to access to the technology that makes their lives possible and prosperous, and this is an attempt to extract that technology, to remove some of that technology, to decrease the energy available to them and all technology is based on energy. This thing will lower the prosperity of the American people and in countries where people just have enough technology to stay alive, it will cause some of them to lose their lives, many of them.

GLENN: You know, we hear from the IPCC report that there's a lot of people that have signed it but then they didn't agree with all of it, just a little bit of it, et cetera, et cetera. Do scientists --

ROBINSON: That's right.

GLENN: To sign this petition, you've got 31,000 signatures on it now. Do you have to agree with all of it or just some of it?

ROBINSON: All of it, exactly. The petition is exactly the same for everyone. You have to agree with every word. There are 15 times more competent scientists in the relevant fields that have signed this petition than participate in the United Nations process, as they call it. And the people who participate in the United Nations process do not have the right of veto power over what is printed. In other words, things are printed under their name which they don't agree with. The UN decides what will be printed and it rejects about half the comments made by the scientists themselves whom they represent produced the document. So they have perhaps 900 to 1,000 Ph.D.s involved in this, actually about 600 whom they say are so involved that they share the peace prize with them. Well, we have 9,000. You don't do science by vote, but you certainly don't run around saying you have a consensus when the preponderance of scientific opinion is in the opposite direction.

GLENN: Where can people read the petition and where can they see the names of the scientists?

ROBINSON: It's at petitionproject.org, petitionproject.org.

GLENN: Art, do you think this is going to make a difference? Do you think there's anything that can stop the insanity at this point?

ROBINSON: Well, I hope it does. Ultimately the American people will have to -- you know, their prosperity will be diminished as the crazinesses go on and the only thing that could reverse it is if they realize the truth and demand action to get industry off the back and get going with the regulation, taxation and so forth.

GLENN: Thank you.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
