Glenn Beck: Science not settled?


RELATED STORY

Ocean Cooling to Briefly Halt Global Warming, Researchers Say

Glenn:  I mean, there's just ‑‑ there's absolutely no common sense, but why would there be?  In a world where this could be the actual headline, I don't know who saw this on Drudge last night, ocean cooling to briefly help global warming.  This is one of the most amazing stories I have ever read in my life.  You know, I told you before I have a big box of things that I'm saving for my children, the history as it has happened as I have seen it, and what happens is I take the newspapers every day and I go and I say, if I see something that's important or a letter that comes in or whatever and I put it in the box and I'll write a little note or whatever and I save it and then someday, after I'm long gone, they can go through it on the throw it out or they can just look through and have some laughs on, Dad was crazy, wasn't he?

This one is getting a special ‑‑ I'm going to put this one in a Ziploc bag, just to make sure this one's not too brittle when they actually read it.  April 30th, parts of North America and Europe may naturally cool over the next decade.  What?  It may naturally cool?  I thought the earth we had screwed up its thermostat.  As shifting ocean currents temporarily blunt the global warming effect caused by mankind.  Average temperatures in areas such as California and France may drop over the next 10 years.

You know, out of all the places where the temperature should drop, it shouldn't be California and France.  This is going to be influenced by colder flows in the north Atlantic, this according to a report today in the institution based in Keel, Germany.  Temperatures worldwide may stabilize over the next 10 years.  The study was based on sea surface currents that move around the world and vary from decade to decade.  This regional cooling effect my temporarily neutral eyes the long‑term warming phenomena that caused by heat trapping greenhouse gases building up and the earth.  Those national climate variations could be stronger than the global warming trend over the next 10 years period.  Without knowing that, you might erroneously think that there is no global warming going on.

Hang on just a second.  The natural climate variations could be stronger than the global warming trend?

Stu:  Wait, now.  Glenn.  You misread that because the science is settled and the natural variations aren't going to factor in.  It's just going to warm‑up ‑‑

Glenn:  No.  I have it here.  This is from the research scientists at the Met Office Hadley Centre in UK.

Stu:  No, no.  I understand what you're saying.  I know the sources, but what I'm saying is that when ‑‑ natural variations have nothing to do with it.  Demands COT closes the globe to warm and it will continue to warm for the next ‑‑

Glenn:  No.  This is ‑‑ that was the accepted science.

Stu:  It was the consensus was settled.  There is no immediate to look at it anymore.

Glenn:  This is and this is now settled.

Stu:  It was settled yesterday.

Glenn:  No ‑‑ yeah.  This came out yesterday.

Stu:  But it was settled.  It wouldn't change.  So, yesterday's would be the same as today.

Glenn:  Stu, Stu, they were wrong the day before yesterday, but they're not right yesterday.  The day before yesterday.

Stu:  Uh‑huh.

Glenn:  All right?

Stu:  Right.

Glenn:  They were wrong.  So, the science is settled.  These are natural climate variations that are going to be stronger than the global warming trend, just for the next 10 years.

Stu:  But wait a minute.  There hasn't been any scientists out there.  They don't exist, who have been saying natural climate is really the force out there.

Glenn:  They do, but those are the people ‑‑ we never landed on the moon.  Those people said that natural variations might affect this.

Stu:  You're saying there were scientists saying this the entire time.

Glenn:  Those were cooks.

Stu:  But you're saying it's right and it's settled today.

Glenn:  They're still cooks.

Stu:  How are they cooks ‑‑

Glenn:  Excuse me.  Excuse me.  Stop questioning science.  Stu, have you read the IPCC report?

Stu:  I've read ‑‑

Glenn:  Have you read the report?

Stu:  Well, I haven't ‑‑

Glenn:  I think we have our answer there.  No need to listen to him.  If we don't experience warming over the next 10 years, that doesn't mean that the greenhouse gas warming is not with us.  It's just cooling and not warming, but the greenhouse warming will still be with us.

Stu:  So, if we didn't have greenhouse warming, it would be getting much cooler right now?  So, you're saying that right now we're being saved by big oil?

Glenn:  Long‑term climate changes in the north Atlantic religion affect the hurricane activity in the Atlantic.  Excuse me.  Don't we have a consensus now that hurricanes are not caused by global warming?  Didn't that just come out, as well?  Because they were trying to explain away why the hurricanes haven't been getting worse?

Stu:  Oh, no.  That's still the consensus.  That's still the scientific consensus.  Again, the hurricanes have been just taking a break for the past few years.

Glenn:  Right.  This would mean that the .3‑degree Celsius global average temperature rise which has been predicted for the next decade by the enter governmental panel on climate change may not happen.  This according to the Science Journal Nature.  It may not happen.  However, it will just pick right back up in about 10 years.  The effect of rising fossil fuel emissions will meet that warming will accelerate again after 2015, when the natural trends in the oceans veer back towards warming, according to the computer models.  So, their computer models never predicted this but don't worry.  Their computer models predict that after 10 years the computer models will be right.

Critical Race Theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."
