Even though FOX has taken to wondering where Florida's beaches are going(hint - they're under the rising waters), ex-CNN, ex-FOX employee Glenn Beck is still hotly denying climate change.

He's so completely against it that he will fire anyone behaving in a way that saves energy or reduces global warming.

On air, he asked a staffer to write a memo that threatened to fire anyone caught using one. The YouTube video of the moment was picked up by Grist.

"I'm dead serious," Beck said on his radio program, as his employees titter nervously. "I fire the person that starts to purchase fluorescent light bulbs, unless that is the only light bulb for a very specific reason, and I want to be cc'd on what that reason is." ...

“If anyone does anything in this company because of global warming, they’re fired,” he said.

I know that many will not care what Beck does or says, and fortunately more Americans are accepting that climate change is real.  Still, on this day when we are considering bombing Syria, I thought everyone could use a lighter note (pun intended).

On a more serious note, the UK seems to be pulling back from being willing to bomb Syria.  Many meetings have to be held. On the other hand there are now to USS carriers in the area.

I'm sure that will be covered in more depth by those with more knowledge in other diaries.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
