A Question for Glenn Beck on Global Warming and Conspiracy
by Michael Boldin

by Michael Boldin: Raising
the Bar for Nullification
the impression that you consider the science behind global warming
to be inaccurate, and that the efforts to promote it include hiding
truth. A grand conspiracy, of sorts. On your TV show in November,
2009, you said:
Theres Jones, Mike, Keith, Gene and Caspar, whoever they
are. Potentially deleting emails supposedly about supposed science.
So why all the secrecy?
You went on:
emails. Hiding declines. Incorrect Data. Inadequate systems. Redefining
scientific peer reviews for their own uses. This is what appears
to be going on behind the scenes. And literally trillions of dollars
of policy decisions are being based on what these guys are telling
us. If your gut said wait a minute, this global warming
thing, it sounds like a scam well, I think youre
seeing it now
The whole story
sounds like a massive conspiracy to give the government an excuse
to pass cap and trade, to impose restrictions on business and individual
choice, to aggrandize themselves with more money and power. It wouldnt
really surprise me.
That is what
government does in the United States. In fact, its things
like this that made me realize that neither Democrats or Republicans
in D.C. had any respect for your freedom or for the Constitution.
That was a driving force behind launching the Tenth
Amendment Center, which I founded in mid-2006.
But, you know
what? Im not a detective, and I dont have time to study
the science, the clues, the mystery behind global warming or the
global warming swindle as many people call it. So, if you had me
on your TV show (sorry I wasnt available when your producers
asked last year, but I think my recommendation for a substitute
worked out great!), and asked me:
do you believe in this global warming scam, do you believe
what the mainstream scientists are telling us about global warming
yes or no!?
to answer this way:
heard a lot of reports from reputable people on both sides of that
issue. There are some very good arguments, and I think the American
people have not seen all of the evidence there, so I have not taken
a position on that. What I do know is this, I dont trust the
government to tell me the truth.
would you then say that you’re “writing me off” and “writing the
Tenth Amendment Center off” because I haven’t taken a position on
this – and that a better source for state sovereignty information
is now the Huffington Post?”
