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.

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
