Glenn Beck: Gore not sweating ClimateGate



Video: Al Gore on Andrea Mitchell

PAT: Well, Al Gore's infallible and he stuck to that yesterday. In the Andrea Mitchell interview here's some of what Al Gore had to say.

GORE: The global warming deniers persist in this era of unreality. After all, the entire North polar icecap which has been there for most of the last three million years is disappearing before our eyes.

PAT: Right before our eyes.

GORE: 40%'s already gone. The rest is expected to go completely within the next decade. What do they think is causing this? The mountain glaciers in every region of the world are melting, many of them at an accelerated rate, threatening drinking supplies, drinking water supplies and agricultural water supplies. We have these record storms, droughts, floods, fires.

STU: Record lows even?

GORE: Three lows in the American West, climate refugees beginning now, expected to rise to the hundreds of millions unless we take action.

PAT: Where are the climate refugees?

STU: Oh, my I can't tell you how many climate refugees showed up at my house last night.

PAT: At your house? They are all there? Really?

STU: They are all there in the backyard. That's where they live. They leave the climate from down the street and they take refuge in my backyard because I'm high ground, Pat. I can

PAT: Everything around you's underwater?

STU: In let's say 10,000 years when the waters rise 20 feet, I'm going to be the only house above water. And that's why the climate refugees have gathered at my home.

PAT: Will you care in 10,000 years?

STU: Well, you know what, I care about the Earth. I care about our children, our children's children, our children's children's children. Not so much about the children's children's children but the children's children's children's children.

PAT: So you'll care for a while, the first 1500 to 2,000 years you'll care.

STU: Right. But after that, screw them.

PAT: Now, I know you've done a lot of studying, too, and I've looked into it, too, but is there anything to 40% of the polar ice caps disappeared?

STU: Well, you know

PAT: 40% has already disappeared. It's gone.

STU: You know, I've been trying to track this stat down. I always find it fascinating to look back and trace what they've done. I mean, anyone can throw it out there and you could say, all right, 40%, that's not right. But to go back and find the thought process they used to justify bringing this up on a national talk show I always find to be interesting. Looking I mean, I think what he's talking about is the sea ice extent, and you look at this and if you measure it like, because 40% sounds like this big thing. But I mean, it goes from, you know, it drops I'd say I'm just looking at the chart off the top of my head here, dropped 60% by itself from winter to summer. I mean, that's what it does. It melts and it goes back up.

PAT: That's just normal process.

STU: Right. So I think what he's doing is he is picking the absolute lowest number, like the lowest point on the chart where this, where the sea ice melt is would be most significant percentage wise. So instead of picking it at the top of the peak where it would be like 10%, you go to the very bottom of the peak and find the lowest possible point so that will extend it. I still can't get a 40% reading yet.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: But I can at least get, I can get into the double digits. Indiana find a little bit higher than that. I'm trying to, you know, e mail around to some of the sort of scientists we go back and forth with. I can't find it.

PAT: And then in ten years the polar icecap will be completely gone? Where do they get this madness?

STU: They predict this every year.

PAT: I know.

STU: If you remember, this past

PAT: They said by summer.

STU: And they said this for several years. One of, I'm trying to think, was it this year or was it last year that a boat tried to go all the way through because they said, there's not going to be any ice, so we could boat through. And then they just got surrounded by ice and stuck in the middle of the ice.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

STU: I mean, they say this every single year. As you know, there's it's always catastrophe. But the bottom line is what Al Gore's talking about, even if he were true, does not prove his point.

PAT: No, it doesn't.

STU: We acknowledge that there's been

PAT: There's volcanic activity, there's all kinds of things at play. What do they think it is? It could be anything, Al! The sun! I hate to bring this up but there's a two million degree burning orb in the sky. The sun!

STU: We do believe that there's been a .7 degrees temperature warm in 100 years.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: That's something we do believe, that's something that scientists believe.

PAT: Although hasn't that been wiped out already in the last several or has it?

STU: I would say no. It's still level gone up. As I think what you're pointing to is the cooling that has happened over the past, you know, give or take eleven years.

PAT: Yes.

STU: Which is, it's not, it's still higher than it was 100 years ago. It has lost some of the overall gain from 1998. But the bottom line here, though, is the fight is not about whether the temperature has risen or that the majority of the warming has been up in the polar region.

PAT: It's about what's causing it.

STU: It's about what's causing it.

PAT: And what can we do about it even if we are causing it. And your stupid proposals don't fix it. Not even close, even if everything you say is true.

STU: If you get past all this other stuff and you accept all that's what I loved about, we had the guys on from super freakonomics.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And they are not acting skeptical to any scientific finding whatsoever. They are accepting everything Al Gore's says

PAT: They would say that.

STU: Exactly. And they just look at it as what's the best solution? What makes sense for our country, our future, our children's children's children's children, all of those people that we're supposed to care about and making sense of sort of policy arrangement. And when you look at it that way, you can't find any rational path to what Al Gore says.

PAT: Absolutely none. After he said this, I was doing some searching. I couldn't find any like you, I couldn't find any backing for the 40% is already gone claim. The closest I came to finding anything about 40% is that about according to some Seattle scientists they say about 40% of the ice that usually blankets the top of the world during summer will be gone by 2050. So it's another one of those dire predictions that if we don't act now, blah, blah blah, this will happen.

STU: Right, all based on models that plug in Al Gore's theory.

PAT: Exactly. All based on models, none of which predicted the current cooling trend.

STU: No.

PAT: Not one of them predicted the current cooling trend.

STU: A lot of this has to do with it's interesting because Al Gore says it in that clip you just played, which is, I don't know what it is I can't do it like you. I don't know what it is. If it's not this, tell me what it is. Well, that's not science.

PAT: No, it's not.

STU: That's guessing, okay? When you don't know what the cause of something is and you just apply the cause you think it might be, that's a guess!

PAT: Yes.

STU: That's a guesstimate.

PAT: Well, and he does that all the time. He did that on what show was he on when he did the million degree Earth thing? Was it Conan O'Brien a couple of weeks ago when he said this:

O'BRIEN: Is this a viable solution, geothermal?

GORE: It definitely is, and it's a relatively new one. People think about geothermal energy, when they think about it at all, in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places.

PAT: Bubbling up.

GORE: But two kilometers or so down, in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks because the interior of the Earth is extremely hot, several million degrees.

PAT: Several million degrees!

STU: Million degrees!

PAT: The rocks a couple of miles down in the Earth are hotter than the surface of the sun!

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: That is news. I don't know why that didn't go out everywhere to science journals because that's news.

STU: I can't even imagine what that would do to the 57 states if that were true.

PAT: Let alone, you know, the, the moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter.

STU: Seriously.

PAT: Come on!

STU: I think at that point Saturn would be like a tropical locale with this scenario.

PAT: Several million degrees. The sun is two million when you go two miles out, I think because the surface is like 11,000 degrees or something. But then it mixes with the atmosphere and causes this reaction that creates a two million degree temperature a couple of miles out from the sun. And then that spreads through the solar system. The center of the Earth is about 12,000 degrees. 12,000.

STU: Well, look, you

PAT: Not millions.

STU: I mean, you can spin your numbers.

PAT: It's not even close.

STU: You can spin your numbers all you want, but 12,000 and 2 million are basically the same.

PAT: All right, I stand corrected.

STU: I mean, those numbers, look, there's a few other zeroes on there.

PAT: Yes, right.

STU: But zeroes as we know have no value. So

PAT: Who's counting. Who's counting.

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
