Tell Glenn Beck to stop spreading global warming lies via the petition below.
Glenn Beck is a genius to some, and, well,… the opposite to others. But no matter what ideas come to his head, he needs to refrain from telling lies. Several global warming “skeptics” have come around recently and are changing their perspective on this critical topic, but Glenn Beck is one of a handful of media personalities who continue deny the clear science and continues to spread false information about global warming.
On April 23, Glenn Beck said “Cap-and-trade is the biggest socialist scam, totally discredited climate change industry and zero warming for over a decade.” Discredited climate change industry? Hardly. Climate scientists and their work have been firmly backed up by hundreds of the leading scientists in the world and some of the most prestigious and critical academic bodies in the world.
It’s time for Glenn Beck to cool it with his unsubstantiated claims.
As the introduction to a petition on Change.org, sponsored by the League of Conservation Voters, puts it:
Even though we have all just sweated through the hottest six months and the hottest ten years on record, Glenn Beck is still on the air attacking global warming science and the solutions to address the issue. And despite recent polls showing 65 percent of Americans support a comprehensive energy and climate bill, Beck is still trying to discredit the very scientists who have proven global warming is a significant threat to the planet…. Let’s set the record straight with Glenn Beck.
To help put the pressure on Beck to stop spitting out lies about global warming, sign the petition on Change.org now.
