|Free Audio: Global Warming Song by BluBird|
GLENN: Putting the radio back into Radio City, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. So glad that you have tuned in today. Dan, do we have the global warming song? It's been a while since we've done the global warming song and there's an awful lot of news on global warming, lot of news on global warming that is just too tremendous to pass up the opportunity to play the global warming song because I think this song really says it all. It's the song that I think when you hear the lyrics, you are like, wait a minute, I thought global warming might be a scam but no, no, no, now that I've heard this....
(Global warming song playing.)
GLENN: Stop the music! Because there's some very important news now. Over the weekend Sir Richard Branson took Virgin Atlantic Airlines and he flew it on biofuels. It was a few months ago I sat down for an hour with Richard Branson and he said, "I'm going to tell you I'm going to change the world. What I'm going to do, I'm going to change the world. I'm going to fly a jet plane on biofuel." I said, really? How are you making that? "All out of natural stuff, you know." I said, wow. Like, how are you making that? "Off natural stuff. Can't tell you now. You'll know about it soon. Watch for your local news, love." I said, all right. So I watch. It's fantastic. They flew a 747 -- well, actually it was to the a 747. It was an Airbus but a big Airbus. God forbid we use an American plane. They used a big Airbus and they put this synthetic fuel in it. Now, it was 80/20. It was 80% jet fuel and 20% -- and they flew it. They said it flew fine. In fact, they discovered that they could fly now a commercial jetliner with this particular mixture 60/40, 40% synthetic fuel. It's cleaner, you don't have to worry about oil. It's great. It's fantastic... or is it. The problem is he's making -- he got the fuel. The biofuel is made from some sort of a nut only found in the rainforest. Sir Richard Branson, I've never been knighted by the queen, but I am a thinker. You don't think that's going to piss off the environmentalists? I don't care how much CO2 you're not putting in the air. You're making it from a nut you get in the rainforest? What, are you crazy? I can't believe you even got away with this far. Can you imagine if some conservative said, "You know what, I bet there's a nut we could find on a tree in the rainforest. All we need to do is build a road and go start gathering up all them nuts in the rainforest." They would kill you! Well, not only was it made out of a nut in the rainforest, environmentalists already have protested because, they say, that doesn't go far enough. And he said, "But wait a minute. I can cut emissions down by 40%." Yeah, yeah. Even if you could -- and this is a quote from the environmental whackos out in England. Even if you could cut the emissions all the way down, use all biofuels, it's still not enough. Wait, I could use all biofuels and it's still not enough? Nope. We have to reduce air travel. This is -- I mean, Stu, do a Google search. I know I've read some place Bill Clinton saying something like the only really way to solve it is to stop or arrest the global economy, or something like that? Do you remember that?
STU: Not specifically but I'll look it -- yeah, he said slow down the economy.
GLENN: Slow down the economy.
GLENN: That's what it was, I've got to slow down the economy. No thank you. No thank you, uh-uh, no. "Well, we can slow down the economy but then we can bail everybody out that doesn't have a job anymore." Bill, let me ask you a question. Did you grow up behind a tree in the Brazilian rainforest, you nut! It won't work.
STU: Yeah, that's exactly what he said, Glenn. He said, "We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions because we have to save the planet for our grandchildren because..." and I'm adding this part, because the sun will kill us all. That's me.
STU: I'm adding that part, I want to be clear because I heard it in a song. But the first part of that is 100% accurate.
GLENN: Stu, talk me down from this tree. How do you not think that these people are intentionally bringing down our economy? How can you possibly think otherwise? Here's the former President saying we have to slow down our economy.
STU: I mean, you're honestly asking me how -- you're telling me that I'm the crazy person; how can I possibly not believe that everyone is trying to slow down and equalize our economy so we have one-world government?
GLENN: No, no, no. I know that sounds crazy.
STU: Do you?
GLENN: Oh, yeah, I absolutely do. Honestly.
STU: I just --
GLENN: Do you really think, do you really think I want to be this guy? Really?
STU: Because as you said, you said you had a theory you weren't ready to disclose. Let me think about that. Let me noodle that for just a second. Do I think that you're the guy who once --
GLENN: (Whistling). Do you know, Stu, do you think I think that makes me mainstream or popular for the long run in America? Do you think that makes me popular? Do you think I --
STU: Well, I think you think if you're right it would make you popular.
GLENN: And if I'm wrong?
STU: Well, I don't think you think you're wrong.
GLENN: Oh, come on.
STU: You committed to crazy stuff. You commit to crazy stuff all the time.
GLENN: What do I say all the time? "I hope I'm wrong."
STU: I'm sure you hope you're wrong but I don't think you think you're wrong.
GLENN: Yeah, I don't.
GLENN: No, but I mean, look. I didn't stumble onto this and go, oh, there's what I want. I am the opposite of most global warming activists. They don't care if they're right or wrong. It doesn't matter if they're wrong, oh, well, we've done good anyway.
STU: Yeah, the hard core activists certainly.
GLENN: They don't care. They don't care. And it makes them popular to be for it. This makes somebody a pariah and they certainly don't want to believe that people are intentionally orchestrating our economy. But I cannot -- you know, you listen to David Walker, the GAO guy. Here's the chief comptroller. "Explain it to me, David." You can explain how we are not going to be able to pay for anything by 2040.
Now, I saw another stat that came out this weekend that says 2028 it's over because everything's accelerating so rapidly. So tell me, are these people just so incredibly stupid, do they know exactly what they're doing? What's the answer? Or do they just, against all evidence, believe that they can just spend us into -- I mean, that doesn't make any sense. Think of that. In anybody's economy, spending more money when you have no more money, it doesn't -- it's not like a circle where, you know, genius and insanity are part of the same circle. It's not that circle. The economy doesn't work that way. It's a hole that just keeps going down. So tell me how these people think that we can do all of these things and survive in the economy. I don't believe they believe it. I believe they are moving us towards a social, socialist government. They are moving us into the exact position of Vladimir Putin. They are moving us into the exact position of China. They believe a benevolent dictator, a nationalized industry, a socialized country is the way of the future. They've believed it since Lincoln Steffens when he came back and said, "I have seen the future and it works; it's the Soviet Union." They believe it!
STU: I mean, I think maybe this is a different question than earlier, but I mean, if you are asking me do I think Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton look at this economy, "No, we don't have any money," are spending us into oblivion because they believe in a different society than what we currently have which is one that is based on some sort of higher --
STU: Yeah, socialism but based on, they think it's better morally and it's okay if it slows our economy.
GLENN: Yes, yes.
STU: All that's stuff I agree with.
GLENN: That's all I'm saying.
STU: Then I'm with you on that. That's not a conspiracy. That's --
GLENN: No, that's -- well, it was a conspiracy. I mean, when it was Fabian socialism, it was a conspiracy. But they've got a website out. The Fabian socialists have a website where they talk about it!
GLENN: I mean, it was a conspiracy at one point but it's not anymore. It's right out in the open. They believe that global government, the UN, et cetera, et cetera is the way it should be. And so they are taking us there.
STU: Yeah. I think, you know, there's different levels of it. Some of the people basically want us to move to a semi-socialist sort of, you know, where your taxes are just 70% and, you know, when they take most of your money but there's still some people that make -- you know, have nicer houses than other people and then there's that group and then there's the hard core group which I mean, again you look at the activists. There's no question what camp they're in.
GLENN: Yeah, yeah. And that's why there's no -- that's why the left wins in this election. John McCain will sign these giant global warming treaties. He'll sign them.
STU: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: He will give our sovereignty away under the guise of global warming.
STU: He's bragging about it at campaign events in the Republican primary.
GLENN: Yes. Hillary Clinton will do the same thing. Barack Obama will do not only that, he'll also, it was his bill. It passed. He'll sign it. The Global Poverty Act. This guy will take us to one-world government in the blink of an eye. But what they need to happen is they need people to be hungry. They need the New Deal. They've got to be able to have that hunger. If they have that hunger, they can scare people and they can move them and say, "Government, help me, help me, help me, I'm afraid." That's exactly what they're doing.
