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 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).
"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.
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.
