Skip to comments.Meet kinder, gentler Glenn Beck: New 'global warming' believer
Posted on 02/22/2010 6:45:19 PM PST by Man50D
While polls show more people drifting away from acceptance of "global warming," the newest superstar among conservatives Glenn Beck is embracing it.
"You'd be an idiot not to notice the temperature change," he says. He also thinks it could be caused by man's activity.
At home, he's going green by using energy-saving products.
"I'm willing to do anything but use the CFLs," he says of compact fluorescent light bulbs. "I put them in once and couldn't stand the way they lit up the room."
The kinder, gentler, greener and warmer side of Beck, known as a firebrand conservative, came to light in an interview in USA Weekend.
Beck also has lots of friends on the other side of the political spectrum, he reveals. He calls George Clooney "a good, honest man." Beck says the two of them had an extended conversation about the genocide in Darfur.
"We came to an immediate, completely wholehearted agreement about the situation," Beck says. "That is, to put aside the politics and give troops what they need to protect people over there. He's a good, honest man who believes passionately about doing something about it."
Beck's personal publicist, Matt Hiltzik, is a Democratic power player who helped get Hillary Rodham Clinton elected to the U.S. Senate, says the magazine report.

What a freaking load of crap.
You’ve got to be kidding me.
As I said on another thread here over the weekend, Glenn Beck has jumped the shark. And I say that with no joy.
He believes in Global Warming, and apparently has never heard of Tip O’Neil. He’s a hump.
Looks like a BS hack job to me, but what do I know?
is this satire? no. i really want to know!
This may just do him in.
Beck took this USA Today article apart on his radio show. He said something along the lines that out of the ten “facts” reported about him, only four were true.
World Nut Daily AND USA Today strike again!
This isn’t real. It is WND.
It is. The other article this was taken from doesn’t match what this lying clowntard has to say.
Thanks for the information! I was about to invite Glenn down to Texas where we are supposed to get 4-6 inches of snow tomorrow.
Some of my friends think I'm crazy, but he struck me as a total phoney from day one and he still does!
Beck is embracing global warming when everyone else is backing off, even warmist moonbats? This can’t be true. If it is, Beck must be back on the whiskey and porn......not that there is anything wrong with that.
This is pretty thin gruel. Beck has had Lord Monckton on multiple times. He ain’t no global warming believer, best I can tell.
The actual article was posted here last week.
WND is just mad because Glenn rejects Farah’s birth certificate issue.
I used to read them when they were worth reading.
Which four; or which six. . .
"Republicans sold the American people out," Beck says. "I've always said I was a Reagan-style conservative. But I don't think Reagan was a real Republican. He just maintained some shared values."
Interesting. Just heard him say that he "LOVED" Ronald Reagan.
What is the truth here?
Hit piece. Read his book, listen to his show, or read his magazine, and you’ll know that he believes Global Warming is a load of garbage.
What about this clip from his show: Global Warming greatest scam in history
Because of WND? HA! Good one.
I think Glenn might be playin’ rope-a-dope....anyhoo, if he REALLY DOES believe this, it’ll be good: it’ll show the moonbats that the opposition side is NOT a monolithic mindset...
I don’t make my mind up based on what Glenn Beck says, or what Rush Limbaugh says, or what Dick Cheney says, or what Sarah Palin says....
OTOH, I do find myself pleased they agree with ME so much.
These trolls are pretty determined with this stuff. Between truthers and birthers, he’s got his hands full.
Glenn Beck HATES CFL’s. He took them OUT of his new house.
LIES LIES LIES
More lies to bash Beck with
This is not true. He specifically said he took the CFL’s out of his house because they are not bright enough.
Here’s the original trhread from USA today.
Garbage. Beck debunked this story on his radio show.
its not true
Beck is starting to lose me. First I heard about his rude behavior towards sarah palin. Now this.
And I’m not all gung ho about sarah being the next prez. But she is awesome in terms of her conservatism and her voting record. Beck is needing an ass whoopin before he ends up like bill oreilly.
I can see that you are very, very concerned about that.
I’m very concerned about your concern.
lies to do him in?
this is not true
WND is a bunch of crap. They have no credibility with me.
You’re welcome. The people on FR that don’t like Beck much just jump all over threads like this when they are blatantly not true. On his radio show, he said they got it all wrong when USA Today said he bought a house and installed CFL bulbs. In fact, he rented a house and took all of the CFL bulbs out. It’s amazing the amount of freepers who don’t even listen to Beck believe the State Run Media repeated by WND. I thought freepers were smarter than that.
its not true
One of his first shows was that hillarious segment on how to properly dispose of a CFL bulb. Hazmat suit, bull horn and all.
Quite frankly the wild lying from his detractors isn’t doing them any favors. Hell I’m a birther and I don’t want anything to do with most of them myself these days.
Oh now you see the light..
Half of the things USA Today wrote were LIES
Its fox tacking left. I am watching less and less.
He debunked the USA Today story quite thoroughly on his radio show. I guess you’re not a listener and get your info from the State Run Media.
I cannot believe people would buy the crap from the MSM
Uh, the story is false. Geez people!
I’m not interested in a flame war, Noob.
Glen Beck is a slithery character. I remember when he stated that he wanted all Ron Paul supporters rounded up and arrested because they were dangerous. Now, he's supposedly a liberatarian. Agree or disagree with the liberatarians, that's quite a flip-flop don't you think?
Beck has built up the trust of the conservatives by reporting on truthful matters. After setting them up, he then throws a curveball. Look at what he recently said about the birthers and how they were dangerous. He also claimed that they were going to physically attack the president. I'm not necessarily a birther, but I do find it odd that so much effort and money has been spent to cover O's records when a certificate could be provided for what, $10 or $20. I'm old enough to know that where there's smoke, there's a fire.
I like some of the exposure that Beck has reported. However, my spidey-sense tells me watch this guy. I personally believe that he is attempting to take control of the tea party movement. If he wants to be a part of the movement, fine, but he's not my leader.
Glenn Beck has been contaminated by Bill O’Reilly. Sucking up to him, hanging out with him, going on tour with him. What you see with Glen Beck is what Bill O’Reilly has been doing for years and it gets him high ratings
Glenn Beck is going for the ratings too....Thus all his lurches to the left. To broaden his appeal.
On radio Glenn also uses his callers as stooges. The caller gets in a line or two then gets flushed or the commercial break kicks in
