Does Glenn Beck really believe in global warming?

Blogosphere on fire: 'Is this satire? I really want to know!'

That's just one of many questions bloggers and Glenn Beck fans are asking about a Feb. 21 interview story in a leading national Sunday-newspaper magazine that claims the newest superstar among conservatives "believes in global warming."

"You'd be an idiot not to notice the temperature change," Beck said, according to USA Weekend.

Writer Dennis McCafferty reported Beck also thinks global warming could be caused partly by man's activity. At home, he's going green by using energy-saving products, according to the report.

On his top-rated nationally syndicated morning radio show and Fox News Channel television program Beck has been a frequent critic of scientists and advocates such as Al Gore who contend man is causing catastrophic changes in the Earth's climate. Many Beck supporters say his record of opposition to global warming alarmism should speak for itself.

In response to some suggestions that a layer of pollution be released into the atmosphere to cool the earth and counteract global warming, Beck said in a 2007 segment on his show, "Welcome to Crazy Town, USA."

"I believe something is happening. I'm not sticking my head in the sand here. Global warming probably is having ... global climate change is real. It probably is natural," Beck said. He railed against Al Gore's proposed solutions to offset the purported effects global warming.

Rest of the article.


Ok, I didn't comment on the previous post because I thought that someone else would have said this. Glenn Beck isn't doing these things to "go green." He is doing them simply because he believes that it is good stewardship. Being good to the environment is not strictly an Environmentalist viewpoint. The Bible actually talks about us being good stewards to God's creation. The other difference between Glenn Beck and the Global Warming wackos is that he is not trying to force those lifestyle choices onto other people. In that interview all he said was that "I do this" and "I do that," not "You should do this" or "You ought to do that." Glenn Beck was actually very critical of anthropological Global Warming in the first chapter of An Inconvenient Book. I believe that USA Today's purpose of that article was to undermine Glenn Beck's position and make him look like a hypocrite. Unfortunately, based upon the discussion I am seeing here, they have most certainly succeeded.

We report you decide in this case. My take is Glenn Beck's answers varies upon whom he speaks with...

In other news, the Star and Tribune is reporting the wind mill industrial complex is concerned that non-working windmills might leave the public with the impression that windmills don't work very well.
