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?

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.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
