Glenn Beck: Solar panels being blocked by...environmentalists?

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

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

VOICE: The series dedicated to President Obama's passion for everything science.

GLENN: That's right. Our Spotlight on Science. We've heard over and over again there's a wonderful consensus going around the world of science, global warming is real, we're all going to die in some sort of fiery flood if we don't do something and don't do it now. Well, if we don't get off our addiction to big bad oil, we're going to be cannibals in an hour. Well, I don't know if an hour. I think Ted Turner said in 10 years. We need to instead use renewable energy sources like wind and solar, right? Wouldn't that be great? I believe it was some crazy lunatic on the radio that said don't buy into that because they will never let you do it. There are lots of places that, you know, work well for soaking up the sun and harnessing the wind like California's Mojave desert. So when some projects are proposed to do just that, harness the renewable energy right there in California, you know, the leader of the fruits and nuts, the hippies are all excited. Right? Well, they would except they've got a couple of concerns, you know, about the desert and man being in the desert with a solar panel. Senator Dianne Feinstein said that putting solar and wind facilities on a parcel of 500,000 desert acres would violate the spirit of what conservationists had intended when they donated so much of the land to the public. So what's the big uproar from the conservationists? "There's a concern over what the projects might do to the aesthetics of the region." Oh, the aesthetics, the desert, all the sand and the dust and the (making wind noises) and the sun. Oh, you mean the place where if you stay out too long, you'll die. Maybe if you put a windmill there, you'll have a chance of a maintenance guy walking by you as you are dying of thirst. And the other concern would be conservationists are now worried about the tortoise population. Quote: It would do great harm to the region's desert population, the desert's tortoises. David Myers, executive director of The Wildlands Conservancy. Energy independence, unless, of course, we hurt the tortoise. "This is just what happens when you jump into bed with environmentalist nut jobs. It's impossible to please them. You never will. Stop trying to please them." These are the same people who say we are literally going to die if we don't stop burning all of this evil oil and putting all the evil carbon into the air. We will literally die! But don't do anything because it might hurt the tortoise. Excuse me, but screw the tortoise if we're all going to die.

When advancements are made in technology, they choose the tortoise population over the human population. Even the governator is annoyed. He said if we can't put solar plants in the Mojave desert, I don't know where the hell we could put them. Oh, I'm sure they know where you can put those solar panels. You learning anything, around, anything? Maybe hopping into bed with these people just isn't a workable idea, you know, that the environmentalists are wildly wrong when they're causing someone named Arnold Schwarzenegger to go, "Wait a minute. I'm not sure if this really works anymore."

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: I find myself agreeing with Arnold Schwarzenegger? What? I didn't even think that was possible, but it was.

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
