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.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
