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.

TRUMP: The twilight hour of socialism has arrived

The other day, at Florida International University in Miami, facing large American and Venezuelan flags, President Trump gave a rousing speech in Miami, including this line, the "twilight hour of socialism has arrived."

Trump went on to say:

Socialism is about one thing only—power for the ruling class. They want the power to decide who wins and who loses, who's up and who's down…and even who lives and who dies.

He then repeated a phrase that helped define his State of the Union address this year:

America will never be a socialist country.

Fittingly, Fox News posted an article yesterday exposing the overlooked evils of Che dangers of socialism that all too often disappear behind a flashy design on a t-shirt.

  1. Guevara said he killed people without regard to guilt or innocence. In an interview, Guevara said, "in times of excessive tension we cannot proceed weakly. At the Sierra Maestra, we executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation; it has the obligation to triumph."
  2. Humberto Fontova, author of "Exposing the Real Che Guevara," told Fox that Guevara created system that put gay people in labor camps. "The regime that Che Guevara co-founded is the only one in modern history in the Western Hemisphere to have herded gays into forced labor camps."
  3. Guevara opposed a free press: "In 1959, leftist journalist José Pardo Llada reported that Guevara told him: 'We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press. Newspapers are instruments of the oligarchy.'"
  4. Guevara made racist statements: Guevara went on to write: "the black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving."

These are just some of the many historical examples of the failure of socialism. President Trump is right. If the frivolities of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Saunders catch on and spread, we could have an unbelievable problem on our hands.

Poor Jussie: His narrative is falling apart completely

Here's how the media works now: Find a story that confirms their narrative, run it constantly and relentlessly. When the real story comes out, minimize exposure of the correction. Repeat.

We're seeing this pattern play out over and over again.

Here are some of the knee-jerk reactions that the media had to this Jessie Smollett hoax, from Insider Edition, CNN, E! News, Headline News, CNBC, TMZ, to name a few:

And those are just the reactions on TV. It was just as bad, at times worse, in print and online. I'll give you one special example, however. Because, you know the situation is bad when TMZ is connecting the dots and seeing through this guy's story:

The sources say there were red flags from the get go. Cops were extremely suspicious when Jussie took them out to the area where he said he was attacked and pointed to an obscure camera saying how happy he was that the attack was on video. Turns out the camera was pointing in the wrong direction. Cops thought it was weird he knew the location of that camera. And there's this. We're told investigators didn't believe the 2 alleged attackers screamed 'This is MAGA country' because 'Not a single Trump supporter watches 'Empire.''

Here's the man himself, in an interview just days after the alleged beating…I'm sorry, the alleged "modern day lynching." Here he is in an interview with ABC News, complaining about people making up stuff:



Strong words, spoken by a man who, allegedly, created the whole narrative to begin with.

This compromise is an abomination

Zach Gibson/Getty Images

Three decades ago, "The Art of the Deal" made Donald Trump a household name. A lot has happened since then. But you can trace many of Trump's actions back to that book.

Art of the Deal:

In the end, you're measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish.

People laughed when he announced that he was running for President. And I mean that literally. Remember the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner when Obama roasted Trump, viciously, mocking the very idea that Trump could ever be President. Now, he's President.

You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.

This empire-building is a mark of Trump.

RELATED: 'Arrogant fool' Jim Acosta exposed MSM's dishonest border agenda — again.

The most recent example is the border wall. Yesterday, congress reached a compromise on funding for the border wall. Weeks of tense back-and-forth built up to that moment. At times, it seemed like neither side would budge. Trump stuck to his guns, the government shut down, Trump refused to budge, then, miraculously, the lights came back on again. The result was a compromise. Or at least that's how it appeared.

But really, Trump got what he wanted -- exactly what he wanted. He used the techniques he wrote about in The Art of the Deal:

My style of deal-making is quite simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I'm after.

From the start, he demanded $5.7 billion for construction of a border wall. It was a months' long tug-of-war that eventually resulted in yesterday's legislation, which would dedicate $1.4 billion. It would appear that that was what he was after all along. Moments before the vote, he did some last-minute pushing. A national emergency declaration, and suddenly the number is $8 billion.

Art of the Deal:

People think I'm a gambler. I've never gambled in my life. To me, a gambler is someone who plays slot machines. I prefer to own slot machines. It's a very good business being the house.

In a rare show of bipartisanship, Senate passed the legislation 83-16, and the House followed with 300-128. Today, Trump will sign the bill.

It's not even fair to call that a deal, really. A deal is what happens when you go to a car dealership, fully ready to buy a car, and the salesman says the right things. What Trump did is more like a car dealer selling an entire row of cars to someone who doesn't even have a licence. When Trump started, Democrats wouldn't even consider a wall, let alone pay for it.

Art of the Deal:

The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration—and a very effective form of promotion.

He started the wall on a chant, "Build the wall!" until he got what he wanted. He maneuvered like Don Draper, selling people something that they didn't even know they wanted, and convincing them that it is exactly what they've always needed.
