GLENN: Hang on, I just have to put my beakers down for just a second. I know that I'm a fear monger. I know that I'm a crazy man. I know, I get it. When I say, you know, socialism seems to be coming our way, I know it takes, you know, about a year before, you know, it actually happens and Newsweek magazine writes we're all socialists now. I know I'm a fear monger when I say, gee, you don't want to give these guys any more power because they will just do whatever they want and railroad you. This is crazy. Let's put science back in her rightful place. I've got some fabulous news. People, people, we've got a show to do!
Al Gore is making a sequel. It's a new book called Our Choice. It's solutions to climate change, and it's being published on recycled paper. Why doesn't he just use a Kindle and just skip the whole paper thing? Oh, where does he get the inspiration to just keep us all updated like this? Oh, I've got to tell you, one of two places. The first one is, oh, I don't know, stepping outside in late March 2009, celebrating spring by scraping the ice off our cars, hands going numb from the cold. I don't think I need gloves in the springtime. Anyway... or, Al Gore gets the inspiration from his buddy, James Hansen at NASA. James Hansen is the oh, so interesting, oh, so fabulous, oh, so always accurate, never fudging any numbers, and he has the oh, so interesting job title of climate modeler. Ooh, that sounds fancy. I wonder if he has beakers. Hanson, the NASA employee, has now come out and said that direct action is the only way to tackle soaring carbon emissions.
You know, it's funny. I mean, I'm the one that people are saying, you know, something terrible's going to happen. I'm going to be the guy who causes something awful to happen to the president or militia groups or whatever because I'm telling you, read history. But the climate modeler guy from NASA can call for direct action and no one says a word. Hanson says, and I'm quoting: The Democratic process doesn't quite seem to be working, end quote. The Democratic process is supposed to be one person, one vote. Too bad we're a republic, huh? It turns out that our money is talking louder than the votes. Hmmm. Now, hang on just a second. I just want to -- I'm not a NASA scientist, but I'm a thinker. The Democratic process, do you mean like the Democratic process where you bypass a global warming debate, where you just say that debate is over, that kind of, "Everybody has a part in it"? Or is it the Democratic process that shows time after time, poll after poll global warming is at or near the bottom of people's priority list? Maybe, Mr. Hanson, just maybe the Democratic process is working and people aren't buying into the fear mongering tactics from the environmentalist freaks. Get 'em! They believe in a flat Earth. Get 'em! But then again, I don't have a set of beakers or anything. I'm not a climate modeler. So what do I know?
