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.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."
