Glenn is back from a two week vacation, but it wasn’t all sunshine and roses. In fact, his time spent in both Scotland and London, England, showed him just how far Europe has succumbed to far-left policies. And some places, he says, may have moved beyond the United States: ‘No one is screaming freedom over there.’ In this clip, Glenn details 5 stories —like the 15 minute cities, the ‘Terra Carta,’ no air conditioning, and more — that taught him so much about the dire situation facing our neighbors across the sea…

GLENN: I think I want to start -- I think I want to start with what I learned over in Europe.
That takes us down the road of dark future even more.
ESG is -- is really, truly just the beginning.
I went over to Scotland, and London. For the last two weeks. It's been a week in Scotland. Met with the -- a wonderful couple of scholars over there.
I'll talk about later. And really, began to understand, A, how far Scotland has already gone.
Scotland, that's Braveheart. Freedom. No one is screaming freedom over there. They're already implementing 15-minute cities. Fifteen-minute cities. Are cities that are so bizarre.
Are cities where you walk. Where you don't drive. Everything that you want is within 15 minutes.
Because the car is going to be eliminated.
And I need that's hard to believe, but it is true.
And I'll lay this case out for you, as the show goes on.
But we are headed toward a zero carbon world. That's what they're pushing.
That will mean the end of almost everything as you know it.
They're implementing these 15 minute cities. Already, they're on the path to eliminate the airports. There will only be two airports in Great Britain one in Heathrow, that's in London. And the other I think in Glasgow up in Scotland. That's it. Everything else, you're going to have to take a train for. And it will have to be an electric plane.
Your cars and moving from city to city, is going away. This is so evident when you come over to England or Scotland. You see it already in play. The cars, the taxicabs are all being replaced by electric. And the cabbies hate it. Hate it.
First of all, we were over there. And it was 80 degrees.
There is no air-conditioning, to speak of. In -- in England or Scotland.
None. None. Now, normally, they have cooler temperatures.
But it's -- the exact same as it is in Seattle.
It reminded me so much of growing up in Seattle.
It's the same weather. And in the summer, you'll have really hot days. And that's why people have air-conditioning, in their cars and their homes, in Seattle.
Many days, you can just open up the windows. Because it gets cool at night. Same thing with London.
But it's 80 or 90.
And last summer or summer before, it was up at 100.
When you're in a city, baking at 100.
When you're at a theater or restaurant. You are seeing a show. And there are a thousand people, sitting on top of each other, in one room. It gets really hot, really fast.
And that's not just because they can't retrofit the buildings.
It's because air-conditioning is a thing of the past.
And when you say you can't retrofit the buildings, it was very interesting, because I went to Windsor castle.
That's the home where Charles and the Queen used to live.
It was the only place that felt like America. It had plenty of air-conditioning. You know how in some cities, especially New York, you're walking around on a really hot day? These stores will actually opening their doors, so when you're walking by on the sidewalk, you feel this push of cold air. It makes you want to go into the store, and get cool.
That's how they attract people. No.
Not in England. They don't do that. Except at the palace of the king. Who, by the way, I believe it was him or, you know, maybe one of his staff or sons. I don't know who it was. But the royal helicopter landed at Windsor castle. And I thought, that's interesting. You would think that helicopters would be a thing of the past. As would air-conditioning, if you truly cared about the planet. By the way, I learned this too.
I don't pay attention to England. Pat is here. You know the Magna Carta, what was that, Pat?
PAT: What was that? It's like the forerunner to our Constitution.
GLENN: Yeah. Right. It was the first document for the rights of?
GLENN: Man. Okay. Did you know that king Charles has introduced something new called the Terra Carta?
GLENN: Yeah. I didn't know that either. The Terra Carter.
GLENN: What is -- terra is Latin for? Earth.
PAT: Earth. Jeez.
GLENN: Earth. This is the rights of the earth charter, okay?
And they usurp the rights of man.
GLENN: So it --
GLENN: They say it goes hand in hand with the Magna Carta, but it doesn't. The earth has rights that cancel out some of man's rights.
Is this how far this is going. By the way, the White House has just approved and supports the new proposal, as do all of the key players in the UN.
They are already acting as if this is a done deal. But the United Nations has released now, and everyone seems to be on board. And it's coming at us like a freight train.
Our common agenda.
Our common agenda.
Now, can I ask, have -- have you voted for anybody at the UN?
Because I have never voted for anybody at the UN. They've never called me up, and said, hey. We're the UN.
We're doing a survey. We're coming up with a common agenda. What do you think? What should be on our agenda?
Because I think in America, they might have found. A lot of them would have said, to get rid of the United Nations.
But their common agenda is an expansion. And a major expansion of Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030.
Its foundation is essentially the great reset, but with several massive editions. Including, a plan to give the United Nations sweeping emergency powers.
You -- this is The Great Reset on steroids.
The -- I really -- I love the emergency powers. The emergency platform would give the United Nations, the ability to actively promote and drive an international response, that places the principles of equity and solidarity at the center of its work.
The UN, along with its stakeholders of the world, including academics, governments, private sector actors. Meaning, global corporations. And international finance institutions, will be there to ensure there's a unified global response to whatever that crisis might be.
Now, it's weird. Because I went to the -- I went to the London School of Economics. Which a lot of people will associate with Hayek, uh-huh. The London school of Economics should be associated with George Soros, okay?
I have some pictures I will show you, probably on television, this week. But I learned a lot. I learned a lot. And I went to the bookstore, and I just picked up a couple of books. These were all in the same section.
It seems to be the same series. One was hurricane season. One was just called emergency. And my favorite is: Drive your plow over the bones of the dead. That's one of my favorite. So I have some reading to do in front of me. They seem to be preparing for an emergency of some sort.
Now, they also in this, have a digital compact. A global digital compact. I'm quoting. Part of our common agenda proposal calls for massive public collection, use of data and global regulations. It also calls for a robust accountability criteria, and standards for digital platform and users to address disinformation, hate speech, and other harmful online content.
So, in other words, the UN is taking a role of governing speech online, including social media. Now, there's a ton, I could tell you about this.
But this is what we talk about in the book Dark Future. Sustainable and equitable rules for technology.
Now, we're telling you about the World Economic Forum. I'm telling you today, there is more information today out now from the United Nations that backs all of it up.
The one thing I learned -- I learned so much.
I learned so much.
One thing I learned is, the English are very concerned about the United States.
I had somebody behind the counter. I was talking to him. And he said, where are you from the states? I said, Texas. And he said, how are things? And I said, in the United States? And he said, yeah.
And I said, not as bad as you might think in some places. Worse than you would think in others.
And he said, we watched the news over here closely. Another couple of guys gathered around the counter, and they were looking at me and listening and nodding their heads. He said, we're very concerned about the future of America.
And I said, well, you should be.
But you should also be concerned for your future as well.
Because we're all connected now.
And I paid the bill.
And as I walked out, he looked at me. And it was so heartfelt, it was so odd.
He looked at me and he said, hey. Please be careful over there.
They're very concerned.
