Glenn Beck: Spotlight on Science - true global warming

GLENN: I'm confused, and I usually am, I know, but why do we keep doing the stories, you know, the science is settled on how global warming happened? I mean, why ‑‑ apparently word is out that there was a runaway spurt of global warming 55 million years ago that turned Earth into a hothouse. Hang on. A runaway spurt of global warming 55 million years that turned Earth into a hothouse. The planet surface temperature blasted upwards between 5 and 9 degrees Celsius ‑‑ that's 9 and 16.2 degrees Fahrenheit ‑‑ in just a few thousand years. On a side note the article explains manmade global warming, A/K/A what we're supposedly experiencing now is driven mainly by the burning of oil, gas and coal and has amounted to around .8 degrees Celsius, 1.2 Fahrenheit over the past century. You may recognize that as less than the 16.2 degrees that the Earth did all by its lonesome. And no one knows how or why.

My first thought obviously was those damn SUVs that they drove 55 million years ago. You know, they were run on ‑‑ they must have been huge gas guzzlers. Can you imagine packing a family of six ‑‑ that's when families were six. They would have six, eight, twelve children a long time ago. Can you imagine having twelve dinosaurs in one SUV? Goodness. Wait a minute, how would they take the dinosaur, squeeze him into oil and then put it into the SUV so the other dinosaurs ‑‑ oh, my goodness, Soylent Green. Citgo, it's dinosaurs! Oh, and the fact that Citgo didn't exist, we didn't exist, SUVs didn't exist 55 million years ago. So we have no idea. But it had to be some sort of manmade greenhouse gas, 55 million years ago. What seems clear is that a huge amount of heat‑trapping greenhouse gases natural ‑‑ I'm quoting ‑‑ natural as opposed to manmade were disgorged in a very short time.

So hang on just a second. Greenhouse gases can be natural? What? Who knew? I just thought we were, you know, we were the ones responsible. It was people that were just lighting a barbecue grill underneath all the thermometers from actually is part of the problem and cause of the temperature rise in some areas, but I digress. You would actually have to read things to be able to know that. So why are we learning this now? The never changing science on global warming sure is a changin'.

A trio of Earth scientists led by Richard Zeebe of the University of Hawaii tried to account for the carbon that was spewed out during the PETM ‑‑ that's what scientists call it when we're talking to you lay people. It's actually the Palaeocene‑Eocene Thermal Maximum, which is my favorite maximum, that and Maximum Ride. That James Patterson is fabulous. I'm not even going to bother with all of the scientific jargon here for you because... I'm going to pretend I don't understand it because I'm not a scientist, but I am a thinker. But probably the real reason is I'm, you know, it will change by the time I finish explaining it. So this is all you need to know from the article. Here it is. Our results imply a fundamental gap in our understanding about the amplitude of global warming. Hold on just a second. Quoting again from ‑‑ just say scientists.

PAT: Scientists!

GLENN: Thank you. Our results imply a fundamental gap in our understanding about the amplitude of global warming associated with a large and abrupt climate perturbations. This gap needs to be filled, this gap needs to be filled to confidently predict future climate change, which is weird because I'm pretty sure you were confident predicting the future of global warming. I'm sorry, global climate change. But who am I trying to be consistent? Clearly I'm not a scientist. I mean, carbon for everybody.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
