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.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
