Glenn Beck: Ice Vanishing?

GLENN: Stu, have you seen the map on global warming for the melting of the ice?

STU: Yes, I have.

GLENN: Okay, here's the headline. I don't have it in front of me. Do you happen to have the headline in front of you? It's like, no ice this summer on the North Pole.

STU: Yes, something like that.

GLENN: Okay. And it talks about how there's just record ice melts. It's just never, ever been like this ever before. No ice this summer at the North Pole. Okay. Then if you click on through it, you will see a chart. Now, maybe I'm reading this wrong, Stu, and you're our in-house global warming expert. Maybe I'm reading this wrong but doesn't the chart show from 1970 to today the average melting of the ice, right?

STU: Yeah. And, of course, obviously it melts every year at generally the same pace.

GLENN: Okay. Then I think it was last year, was the bottom line last year?

STU: Yeah, the bottom line, the yellow line would be last year.

GLENN: Okay. Last year it melted at a faster rate but it still paralleled the line but it was slightly below it.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: This year it's in between the top line and the bottom line.

STU: Yeah. And the top line is the average from 1970 now into 2000.

GLENN: Right. And today for some reason everybody's freaking out that it is melting faster than ever before when their own chart shows that it's not melting faster than ever before. It's melting less than it did last year. And just slightly under the average. It's incredible.

STU: Yeah. But that's -- it's panic time, Glenn. Even though this is one of the cooler years we've had. This is not a particularly warm year over the last, what, ten? I mean, it's much cooler than in '98 and it's been about flat for the last seven or eight years. And we are looking at the -- I was looking at another article about the temperatures this year. We're within the margin of error of temperature of 1940. So I mean, you know, --

GLENN: It's unbelievable. Anywhere in this article -- because I didn't finish reading it -- anywhere in this article did it talk about record ice levels on the South Pole?

STU: I have not seen that yet.

GLENN: No.

STU: And we pulled it up and I've read about half of it. But it's certainly not -- I mean, you know, it's not a big headline. This is -- you know, you have two things where you have record ice at the South Pole and you have a lower ice than normal on the North Pole. And what are you going to promote? You are going to promote in big block letters that the ice is going to go away in the North Pole because it just, it's just scarier. An extra inch of ice is what?

GLENN: If you look at the polls, at least I saw them in England, I would imagine here, have you seen any polls that show this? Over in England the number of people that believe manmade global warming is smaller than it was three years ago.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: More and more people are saying this is nothing with you bullcrap and yet you are not seeing a reflection of that at all in the media, at all.

STU: Well, what we're seeing is the end of the hype and it's a major -- since An Inconvenient Truth basically up until now, you've seen an incredible exponential growth in the hype and the trendiness of quote/unquote being green. I mean, you look. Even oil companies, the only thing they talk about is being green. It's so -- it's just permeated every part of the media and society and you look at -- I was reading an article, I want to say it was in one of these, you know, cutting edge magazines. You know, I think it was GQ or one of these sort of things with, by the way, Gisele on the cover, fantastic. But talking about when we're not sure when exactly we cross the line on the trendiness of being green and we never -- we don't remember exactly when it got ridiculous, but it definitely is. I mean, that doesn't mean that they disagree with global warming or any of that stuff but you get past that and people are naturally skeptical of idiot politicians claiming catastrophe. This is what they do all the time.

GLENN: My daughter came into my office yesterday. I was changing out some of the books in my office. I'm trying to get rid of some and I've taken books out and there's a book on global cooling and it's from the 1970s, "Can you survive the coming ice age." She said, dad, what is that from? And I said, from the 1970s. She said, you're kidding me. And I said, no, I love it. It's fantastic. Can you survive the coming ice age, the global cooling scare. She said, you've got to be kidding me. I said, no, this has been going on forever. It's cooling, then it's hot. Now it's just changing. Now it's just global climate change. We are so arrogant and that is the -- that is, you know what? The problem is arrogance, the arrogance of Obama changing the presidential seal. The arrogance to think that you are not -- that the office of the President of the United States, that you deserve it, you can do whatever you want there, that you're bigger than that. Or at least you fit that. You should be humbled when you walk into that office every single day. The arrogance of those who say the debate is over. It's not over. But the other side, the extreme left -- I'm not talking about regular Democrats. The extreme left, what they're doing is shutting down all dissenting voices. That is called fascism, and Barack Obama, he is the epitome of what that extreme left has been looking for.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
