GLENN BECK PROGRAM
GLENN: Did you see the paper today, you know, the Earth, one third of all animal and plant species is going to be dead. The planet is dying and we're running out of time and Al Gore and the IPCC has come out with a new report. This is the same science that they used last time. This is just an update of the report that they've already issued over and over that, this is it; final warning; running out of time.
London Times, or is it the Telegraph, today says that the only solution is taxes. That's it. Taxes. Wow. Is that a frightening thing, global taxes. Let me tell you what global warming is. The Earth is getting warmer. The Earth has always gotten warmer and then it has gotten warmer and then it has gotten colder. For instance, "Time" magazine wrote in 1924 about global warming -- I'm sorry, global cooling. And then in '39 it was global warming. And then in '74 it was global cooling and then it's warming again. The "New York Times" did the same thing, 1924, stories all about global cooling. 35, global warming. '75, global cooling. Today it's warming again. It happens over and over and over again, but they have so captured the imagination and the fear of people that we're all going to be wiped off the face of the planet and it is a lie! It is a lie! But don't take my word for it. I'm going to give you just the phrases from the environmentalists that should open your mind and open up your eyes and be able to arm you with being able to save the open-minded people that are left, the ones that have been duped, the ones who don't know. They are all good intentioned but they are being useful idiots. Let me give you some of them.
This comes from Canada's former environmental minister, Christine Stewart. Quote: Climate change provides the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.
Excuse me? Climate change is the greatest chance to bring justice and equality in the world? How is that, Christine Stewart? Quote, same person. This is the former environmentalist of Canada. Quote: No matter if the science is all phony, there is still collateral environmental benefits to global warming policies.
Quote, Stephen Schneider: To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have. Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest.
Who is Stephen Schneider? He was the lead UN IPCC report author and climate alarmist. In 2007 he is still a major role. In fact, Stu, correct me. I don't want to get this one wrong. Still the lead guy in this latest?
STU: He was a lead author, yeah. This is also one of the guys who authored one of the original reports that started the global cooling scare of the Seventies, still one of the lead guys.
GLENN: Dave Foreman, founder of Earth First: Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on Earth, social and environmental. Jacques Chirac: Kyoto is the first component of an authentic global governance. Prince Philip, World Wildlife Federation, which, World Wildlife, WWF, that's why it's WWE, these guys. Prince Philip: If I were reincarnated, I would come back, return to the Earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels. This comes from George Monbiot, environmental author last year: Every time someone dies as a result of floods in Bangladesh airline executives should be dragged out of office and concerned. Helen Cox, Union of Concerned Scientists, free enterprise really means rich people get richer. They have freedom to exploit and psychologically rape their fellow human beings in the process. Capitalism is destroying the Earth. Every time you turn on an electric outlet, you are making another brainless baby. Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund: The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We cannot let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization we have in the U.S. we must stop third world countries right where they are.
This is the goal of the environmental movement, to stop America, to stop development, to stop the Third World, to redistribute the wealth, to take your money and give it to an organization that can better decide how it should be distributed. It is the global movement for justice and equality. Now, that's not what your neighbor thinks that has the, you know, Go Green and, you know, the Prius or whatever. That's not what they think, but that's the truth and at some point Americans have got to unite and stand with the truth. There is no dismissing these comments.
By the way, you want these comments? These are just a few of them in the first chapter, the only chapter about global warming, but the first chapter of "An Inconvenient Book." You've got to spread this news because gang, no pun intended, they are turning up the heat. They know that the time to strike is now, the time to get these treaties through are now. I don't care if it's a Republican or Democrat. The Republicans are starting to go down this road because so many Americans have been co-opted into this lie that the Republicans are going to have absolutely no spine and they're going to go right along with it. This is a plot from the far, far left, and you have no idea. Do we have the audio of John Edwards from this weekend where he said this is going to cause great pain, higher energy prices, higher gas prices, higher food prices, we're going to pay higher taxes but we've got to do it and there may be more on the horizon that we don't even know but we've got to do it. You have no concept of what is right around the corner, and what is right around the corner is the loss of sovereignty. It is about the destruction of the United States of America.
And then one piece that doesn't fit. I'm going to do a commercial here and then we're going to come back and I'm going to tell you about Hugo Chavez and what he's up to. Something isn't right. He's selling all of his oil for refineries and all of his oil interests, pipelines and everything else in the United States. He's selling them to us. Why? He's also taking all of the surpluses and he's selling them to China. What does Chavez know that we don't know? You might see this story buried in the middle of the paper and you'll see it as good news for U.S. gas companies: Marathon buying new refineries from Chavez. Why, at this time, when this is the time to buy, not to sell, is he selling all of his interests here in the United States.
