Glenn: Um, yes, indeed. Hello and welcome back to the program. So, Al Gore yesterday decides to retract -- do we have the actual audio of him saying -- gee, you can probably just do it, Pat. The ice is going to all melt and the Arctic temperature is going to be --
Pat: Glenn, some of the models suggest to Dr. Mozlowski that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap during the summer months could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.
Pat: Completely ice-free within five to seven years.
Glenn: That's incredible.
Pat: Isn't it?
Glenn: In fact, it's so incredible it's not believable and not true. So, here is -- Dr. Mozlowski said, it is unclear how this figure is arrived at. I would never try to predict the likelihood of anything as exact as this. So, he came right out and said, I don't know where he got that. I've never said any such thing. All right. And Al Gore expanded --
Pat: Al Gore later said the --
Glenn: His usual response is, the debate is over and that guy's a flat earther.
Stu: Right. Or he wouldn't respond to it.
Glenn: I'm not going to respond to questions. Those are ridiculous questions.
Pat: But unfortunately Mr. Gore's office later termed by Dr. Mozlowski as a ballpark figure, several years ago in a conversation with me, Al Gore.
Glenn: Okay. So, in a conversation several years ago, according to Al Gore's recollection, this was thrown out.
Glenn: Okay. So, he has retracted what we showed you last night as being complete nonsense. Now, question: Why? Good news. A couple of reasons. A, you; B, media. I think the scientists are under such incredible pressure right now with climategate and everything else that they -- I mean, I know people who believe in the science of global warming and hate Al Gore, scientists who have said, no, you're wrong, but Al Gore is just as wrong. What Al Gore is doing is wrong, blah blah blah blah blah. So, I think the scientists are under so much pressure that they can no longer stand by and say, well, at least he's kind of doing something -- he's pushing the -- I don't think they can do that anymore because they know they're the ones that are going to be, you know, strapped to the pilary. You know? They're the ones. And so I think they're going to throw Al Gore under the bus. The other thing is the pressure from you. You have started to push back hard enough to where you've said -- and you see it in the poll numbers -- I don't believe it and I'm not taking it anymore. And so they're -- they want to correct the easy ones, the ones that don't -- like, for instance, the hockey stick will never be corrected by Al Gore, never, because that's too iconic. The minute he says the hockey stick is dumb, well, then, you're done, you're done, because that's what made you, the hockey stick. Right?
Glenn: So, they'll take care of the easy ones. So, they say, we correct our mistakes when we find them.
Pat: Uh-huh. Yeah.
Glenn: You do now the other thing is you are going to see a, I think, a tactic, not really a change but an increase. I think you are going to find yourself under attack even more. I mean, we've talked about this on the program before. They need to make an example. What does a bully do? I was talking to a friend of mine last night and I said I remember the eighth grade. We had a new teacher, Sister Margaret, and she was new to the school and there was a bully that had been in our class since, you know, first grade and his name was Troy and he was just a bully and everybody was afraid of Troy. Well, Sister Margaret didn't know who true was and Troy, more importantly, didn't know who he was -- who she was. She said, knock it off, first day, knock it off. He said, really? Make me. Go to the principal's office. No. I'm not going to. Yes, you are, even if I have to drag you there desk and all myself, by the hair. Well, he said, you would never do it. She did. She did. She dragged him, big, heavy metal desk, by the hair to the back of the room and she said, so, are you willing to walk the rest of your way, because I can take you the rest of way if you want. We never heard a peep out of Troy again. She set the example. We're all thinking, could you not have shown up maybe seven years before? Never heard a peep from him again. She set an example.
Pat: Glenn Beck suggests dragging Al Gore by the hair.
Glenn: No. What I'm suggesting is Al Gore and his minions and those in Congress are going to start dragging you by the hair. Anybody who is speaking out, they must make an example out of the people they are deeming the bullies. They're deeming the bullies the tea party goers, me, everybody else. What if they are really correct? And what they are going to do is if they can -- nobody messed with Sister Margaret. After that nobody messed with her. I just want you to know that that in the bully book, that's the way it works.
