Glenn Beck: Spotlight on Science - Global cooling



Did you know?


There used to be a scientific consensus that the earth was about to enter a period of 'global cooling'. Read this 1975 Newsweek Article on Global Cooling (PDF)

GLENN: That's right, science can solve everything. That's why we've got to rush to solve global warming. The Science and Public Policy Institute. Sounds official. It's got the word "Science" in it. I bet Al Gore and Barack Obama are immediately going, "Wait, wait, wait, Science and Public Policy Institute? That's got to be good." They've released a report on global warming in the past decade. Honestly, I don't even know who these people are except I think they probably did this just to piss Al Gore off. And that's not very nice. Don't mess with Father Nature.

First of all, they point out that the rise in CO2 during the Bush administration halves the UN IPCC projection. Wait a minute, what? It's half as much as the IPCC report said it would be? Uh-oh. And that also throughout the eight years of George Bush's presidency, there was a down trend in global temperature at a rate equivalent to 1.1 degrees Celsius per century. Shhh, don't point that out. Quiet. Keep it to yourself. They say the IPCC projected a rise of 2.4 to 5.3 degrees Celsius per century but since 1980 it's rising at only 1.5 degrees. That's weird. That's far lower than even the low end of their projections. But don't question science! Shhh, quiet. Al Gore is going to hear you, you flat earther. The Accumulated Cyclone Energy index which, I get that paper every day, it's at a 24-month running sum of monthly energy levels in all hurricanes, typhoons and tropical cyclones. The Accumulated Cyclone Energy index hit a 30-year low in October 2008. Wait a minute, hang on just a second. I thought -- oh, it's going to be hurricanes and cyclones and witches and houses are going to be sucked up into tornadoes. I mean, all this is well and good, but this is one I think is a little over the line because I personally, this could throw Al Gore into a deep depression and I don't want him sad. If the Earth has a temperature and Al Gore is sad, won't we all die in a fiery flood?

Since Al Gore's climate movie Inconvenient Truth was launched in January 2005, global cooling has occurred at the equivalent of 11 degrees Fahrenheit, 6 degrees Celsius per century. Quick! Everybody grab a coat, a hat and some gloves because it could -- if it continues -- get very, very cold! Looks like the best thing that ever happened to global warming was Al Gore's movie, quite honestly. Maybe it was all the hot air in it, which was kind of funny because until all the fossils, you know, were entrenched in an icy grave, I mean, you know, I don't -- I didn't see the big SUVs that all the dinosaurs were -- but now the fossils are -- you know, I just thought of something. We're going to be the fossils, holy cow, in an icy grave. Oh, that's not going to be funny. Yeah, but let's laugh in the meantime, shall we?

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.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
