Glenn Beck: No consensus?

GLENN: I want to start with this. If the science, if it really is truly about science, wouldn't we maybe stop the global warming train at this point? Wouldn't we just take a pause and say action wait a minute, hang on.

There's too many things that are happening now in global warming that show that this is a massive fraud. Phil Jones, the head of the climate research unit in East, is it Anglia University? Where is East Anglia University? Is that in London?

STU: U.K., yeah.

GLENN: This guy is a big guy, right, Stu? You've been our climate kind of guy on the program?

STU: Yeah. He's one of the guys that came up with the baseline.

GLENN: The hockey stick thing.

STU: Yeah, he contributed to that. He wasn't that guy's from University of Penn but, you know, this is one of the guys who keeps major records of the temperature going back in history. I mean, and this is, of course, what they judge all this stuff on.

GLENN: Okay. So Phil Jones is the head of climate research. He has given an incredible interview. He has admitted now that the warming of the late 20th century, the warming that alarmists claim is so unprecedented and therefore must be mandated is indistinguishable to the warming between 1860 and 1880, 1910 and 1940, before CO2 was a significant factor. Indistinguishable.

STU: Right. So before there was any of our crazy SUVs affecting the climate, twice in the last 130 years the exact same thing as they're complaining about now has occurred.

GLENN: He admits now that the temperature readings of only 130 years ago are more uncertain because of sparser coverage of temperature stations. I mean

STU: So they're hedging yeah.

GLENN: How do you even I mean, we've been saying this for years. Where were the thermometers 1,000 years ago? "Well, we can go and..." well, what does this mean for the estimates going back thousands and thousands of years?

STU: Yeah, when you're hedging your bets essentially on over 100 years ago, slightly over 100 years ago and complaining about their accuracy then, how can you be complaining about, you know, all these changes that have supposedly happened thousands and thousands of years ago.

GLENN: I'm going to bring Pat in in just a second to talk about what the president is now doing, what John Kerry is now doing. All these people are moving forward. I'm going to talk about political ramifications here in a second. But we're not done with the, just the admissions in this one interview. He now admits that there has been no statistically significant warming since 1995.

Let me say it again. There has been no statistically significant warming for 15 years. He admits that there has been global cooling since 2002, though not at a statistically significant pace. He admits that this might not have been the warmest period of the last 1,000 years, the central argument on the hockey stick graph.

STU: That's one of the most amazing ones in the entire interview because this is I mean, this is deconstructing everything that Al Gore talked about in his movie. There was initially this period that was supposed to be warm that got erased as they went through. It used to be the common knowledge of all climate scientists and that got erased over the years. I mean, when Michael Mann, the guy you were talking about with the hockey stick graph said, oh, no, no, it was completely flat this entire time, has only risen recently. Well, he is saying right here that there's still significant debate going on about that. If that's true, that's a huge admission.

GLENN: Huge. He admits that there is much debate over whether the medieval warm period was global in nature as opposed to only the northern hemisphere. If it was global, then obviously the late 20th century warmth would not be unprecedented. He admits that they don't actually know that man is responsible for global warming. They just can't explain it any other way. So they assume it's correct.

They can't explain it any other they can't explain what? That there hasn't been any warming since 1995? There's been no statistically significant warming? That the temperature readings of the 130 years ago are more sun yes or no, that the warming of the late 20th century is indistinguishable between 1860 and 1880, 1910 to 1940s warming? I mean, what, what are we trying to prove here? He admits that he asked a colleague to delete all e mails relating to the 2007 IPCC report.

Now, why would you do that? I mean, unless you think you're doing something wrong, why would you do that? There's no reason to you're doing history. You are the people saving the planet. Don't you think all of your records would be important? He admits to having trouble keeping track of information over the years and most importantly he admits that there is no consensus among climate scientists.

Now, where's Al Gore? This is amazing. Quote: I don't believe the vast majority of climate scientists think this. This is not my view. There is still much that needs to be undertaken to reduce uncertainties, not just for the future but for the instrumental past as well. So there's no consensus.

STU: Yeah, I was surprised to hear him say that the idea of a scientific consensus is not the position of the vast majority of climate scientists, the vast majority.

GLENN: So he thinks there's a consensus in the scientific community that there is no consensus.

STU: Yeah, that's the way to put it.


 

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
