Glenn Beck: Science -It's just that easy to be green!

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

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

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

GLENN: In order to put science in her rightful place, maybe we should revisit history way, way back before the Earth was on fire. Scientists believe that it was freezing and on its way to becoming an earthcicle. So in order to rectify the situation, they proposed sprinkling tons and tons of ash onto the ice caps. Soon after scientists feared the disappearance of the great coral reef. Scientific solutions, dump old worn tires, tires. Yeah, tires into the ocean. Scientists said put tires, old ones into the ocean to save the reef. Weird. Didn't work out, so strange. So now we're on to global warming and climate change, which was warming but now it's cooling. So now it's just changing. But anyway, that's a different story. The plan now is we've got to stop the Earth from changing somehow or another. So the list goes on and on for ways to be green. For example, if we want to save the Earth, we have to put air in our tires, recycle, plant trees, go organic, wear cotton or hemp, reduce our carbon footprint, you know, the usual. And then if we really love the planet, we should get rid of all cars altogether, not have so many children, not eat meat and, of course, pretty much view humans as a cancer, nonexistent species. Other than that, no biggie.

What would you do if you found something that would be the equivalent of taking all of the cars in the world off the road for 11 years? I mean, if you were green, you'd be on board, right? Taking all of the cars on planet Earth off the road for 11 years? My goodness. Wow. Well, what is it that could do that? Steven Chu, the U.S. secretary of energy and Nobel Prize winning scientist said yesterday that making roofs and pavements white or light colored he also thinks it would be helpful if applied to cars would help reduce global warming by both conserving energy and reflecting sunlight back into space. Besides, if aliens ever attack, they will be like, ooh, I can't even see that planet, it's so shiny. So if I make my roof white, it will be the equivalent of taking every car off the road for 11 years. When sunlight is reflected off a white or light colored surface, much of that light will pass through the atmosphere and back into space, unlike the infrared radiation emitted from the Earth's warmed up surface, which is blocked by greenhouse gases and causes global warming. So remember this next time your town or your state wants to do something green and they express it in the number of cars taken off the road. If we just paint, it would be the same as taking all of the cars in the entire world off the road for 11 years. I got good news for you. Lots of paint. And it's cheap. Energy, not so cheap. I mean, if this is true and, you know, it is from a fancy no bell and Obama approved scientist, why are we having the cap and trade and the hybrids and the government mileage mandates? Why wouldn't we be mandating that everybody get on your roof and paint your house white on the top. Everybody wear a white hat! Only white cars! Why aren't we doing that, you know? Why isn't Nancy Pelosi saying, "We are going to make this government more green by making our roofs more white!" It's almost, almost like there might be another agenda going on besides the green thing.

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.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

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!"
