PAT: Now the oil spill. We're getting some mixed coverage on this. First of all, we're hearing that a lot of it's missing. A lot of the oil spill has apparently been cleaned naturally.

STU: That's impossible, Pat!

PAT: I know.

STU: The evil oil company, irresponsible oil company just put all this oil into the ocean.

PAT: On purpose I'm sure.

STU: On purpose, I mean, why else? Because they wanted to hurt the planet and make children eat dirty fish.

PAT: Well, that's what oil companies do, Stu.

STU: Oh, they are so evil. They are almost as evil as whitey which we learned last hour is also evil.

PAT: Some of them are white.

STU: Oh, my.

PAT: Let's not forget that.

STU: Wow.

PAT: Which makes them double evil. White oil executives.

STU: They could be the most evil people on the planet

PAT: Oh, yeah.

STU: And there's been this weird thing that there's another side of this issue, although the consensus is clear here. There's another side of this issue that maybe companies try to do what's in their best interest, and what's in their best interest is not spilling millions of gallons of oil into water.

PAT: What? Nice Republican spin, Stu.

STU: I know. We all know what's true here.

PAT: You are such a shill.

STU: But there is the thought that perhaps people would act in their own best interest and in the interest of the people who are purchasing their products and do the right thing based on that.

PAT: You think they would rather put the oil in the water or in the gas tank of somebody driving around who had to pay for it? I love that.

STU: Because they would rather have they would rather be so lackadaisical that they would just let the oil seep into the water instead of getting it into your gas tank where they could make money off of it. Instead they would rather spend $30 billion to clean up the product they could have been profiting off of.

PAT: That's how evil they are.

STU: That's

PAT: They are willing to waste billions of dollars on their evilness, evilocity.

STU: Right.

PAT: Anyway, here's a statement by Carol Browner who is our energy czar and she said something I found pretty interesting.

BROWNER: But in the meantime what the scientists are telling us is that the vast majority of the oil has cleaned, it's been captured, it's been skimmed, it's been burned, Mother Nature has done its part.

PAT: What?

STU: Who?

BROWNER: And I think, you know, this is the testament to the response that we want. It's the largest environmental response in the history of our country.

PAT: But wait, Mother Nature has done her job?

STU: I thought she had nothing to do with these things.

PAT: As a matter of fact, I just saw a pie chart either yesterday or the day before that said Mother Nature has cleaned up by herself like 26 to 30% of this oil spill. So about a third of it you credit to Mother Nature and then man's efforts are for, 25% and then some of it's just ended up on shore and then, they don't know what's happened to some of it. So if Mother Nature can clean up hundreds of millions of gallons of oil.

STU: In a very short period of time.

PAT: Very short amount of time, but it can't clean up some CO2 in the atmosphere?

STU: No. Pat?

PAT: Is that what I'm

STU: I can't believe you are going into the denier.

PAT: I'm sorry. I've gone too far.

STU: Because just pointing out the fact that the planet has been around----

PAT: And the planet has taken care of itself through millennia of time.

STU: Right. Before humans were even around with their SUVs.

PAT: It was cleaning up CO2 right and left and then, you know, CO2 would come back and then it would go and then it would retreat and it comes back.

STU: And CO2 levels were much, much, much, much higher in the past.

PAT: Much higher.

STU: And many times didn't move at the same direction as the temperature.

PAT: But it's foolish to think that could happen now.

STU: That can't happen now.

PAT: I'm sorry.

STU: Look, if you want to point out the fact that the temperature has risen at the same pace two previous times in record just in the past 120 years at the same pace as it's been rising recently before man had really any impact on it, you could point that out and it would be true, but it would hurt the argument of the left. So we're just going to ignore that.

PAT: We'll ignore that. Shhh, you didn't say anything. Disregard that.

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."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
