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?
