Glenn Beck: What's in a climate bill?

GLENN: Did you know that some people actually think our government's completely honest efforts at controlling global temperatures has something to do with socialism? That's crazy. I hate those people. Anyway, it's not like they're trying to micromanage every aspect of our lives from Washington or anything like that. This is from the Wall Street Journal about the new climate bill. Kids, kids! The new climate bill is here! This bill is oddly silent on some pretty big issues but willing to wade into the regulatory minutia that it just doesn't aim to curb greenhouse gas emissions. The bill also aims to curb electric consumption by people who just want to unwind after work. The 648 page bill that nobody's going to read did not dedicate a single line to addressing big picture questions such as how carbon emission permits are going to be distributed or what are you going to do with all the money you're making off of cap and trade. We'll get to that later. 648 pages. Huh. And no one in that time to address the two important parts of Cap'n trade. I'd like to make that into the new Cap'n Crunch with blueberries, Cap'n trade. In fact, the emission permit distribution was one of the main reasons for the failure of the European system which, of course, was only implemented because the previous system had also failed. And isn't it odd that $2 trillion coming into the government and yet no word on how they're going to spend that $2 trillion. That's not suspicious. I just want to make that clear.

So what's in the 648 pages? Well, the bill's authors took the time to dictate new efficiency standards in excruciating detail. For instance, if you are planning on putting a slanted roof on a house who's going to put a slanted roof on their house? That's crazy talk! If you're planning on putting a new slanted roof on your house, get ready for one standard for initial solar reflectants for fiberglass asphalt shingle roofing and a different standard for all the other types of shingles. Or take your light fixture. The bill found 10 pages just for portable lighting, 10 pages. Lighting... in your house. Portable, not what you have in the if you're curious, that means a new raft of standards for things like artwork fixtures and, yes, those are the lights affixed to the bottom or top of a picture frame. Regulation on those now, for the environment. I mean, but just the picture frame things... and then 10 other pages. One subsection is dedicated to something called portable electric spas. "Is that the hot tub they're talking about?" I think so. Sensing that middle America's populous rage is secretly dictated at new energy consumption of hot tubs, the bill laid down the law. In its own way it says effective January 1, 2012, portable electric spas shall not have a normalized standby power greater than 5(V2/3) watts, where V equals the fill volume in gallons. Oh. Well, for a minute there I thought you were getting a little fancy here with my hot tub. Are you ready for the government to tell you how shiny your shingles will be, how brightly your paintings will be lit, how bright your hot tub can be? No.

Let me ask you this. Why is it you hate the Earth so very much?

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

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.
