Glenn Beck: Spotlight on (idiot) scientists

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We'll restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama for everything science.

GLENN: That's right. You know, this program has won all kinds of awards and medals and everything, statues, and we just, we were just presented the Swedish black hole award, which was great, but it sucked all the presenters right into the award which was kind of tragic. You would think the scientists would have figured that one out. But let's not get bogged down in those facts. You know, most people, we do this segment because most people who listen are, you know, conservative or common sense and they don't understand all this crazy science thing that Obama was talking about. So every day at this time we'll help the President fix science back into her rightful place.

For example, there are too many Canadian geese in states like Connecticut. Wait a minute, hang on just a second. Canadian geese, aren't those the ones that were sucked into that airplane just -- let's not get sidetracked on that. Let's just stay to the facts. Too many Canadian geese in states like Connecticut. Estimates are -- scientific estimates -- 40,000 Canadian geese in the state, primarily in the Southwestern region, which would be where all the airports are. They have the perfect combination of foraging food, nesting and covering habitat in the state. They also don't have many natural predators left in Connecticut. This is where science steps in and creates a predator. Scientists are now recommending, well, not just murdering the geese. I mean, that's what simple minded people -- you and I, we just go grab a shotgun. Let's go have some geese! No, it's, we need science to help us on that. So is the science-approved method of controlling the geese population in the state of Connecticut? Local environmental activists are urging local residents, especially those with waterfront property, to do their part in controlling the geese population through geese family planning, quote/unquote. Not only is family planning an economic stimulus we learned last week from President Obama, it's also the right way to control geese. How are you to help out with family planning of geese? No, no, Mr. Unscientific, not little tiny geese condoms but here's what you need to do. According to science... to reduce their long-term growth rate, you need to locate their nests and oil their eggs. This is what they are asking now in the State of Connecticut for citizens to do, especially those with waterfront property. You locate their nests and oil their eggs. How do you oil geese eggs? One, register with the Fish and Wildlife Service; two, get permission of any private property owners; three, get an approved scientist. I think we have to use the Yellow Pages for that one. Four, bring a dog to scare away the geese; five, try the float test. If an egg submerged in water sinks, it means it's been incubated for less than 13 days and the chick has not matured. So the egg is allowed to be oiled. If the egg floats -- I think then what's inside of the egg is a witch and you have to burn it at the stake. Oh, no, I'm sorry! Sorry, that was just me, the crazy unscientific conservative figuring, there goes my nonscience again. The real answer, of course, is forced geese abortion. How? You bring a spray bottle filled with corn oil. Then you spray it all over the egg. Remember, quoting, it only takes a small amount of oil to prevent the gases from diffusing through the pores of the egg which will cause the embryo to die of asphyxiation. Once you've murdered the embryo -- I'm sorry, not being scientific again. Once you have frozen the embryo to death, you will officially be a scientist!

VOICE: You've been listening to Spotlight on Science, exclusively heard on the Glenn Beck program. America's number one source for science and science-related items.

GLENN: Man, I am so glad, I am so glad that we are finally going to fix science back in her rightful place. Thank you, President Obama.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

RESTORING HOPE: Join Glenn live from Standing Rock Ranch to restore the American covenant

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
