Global Warming Commentary / Beagle Rescue

About the show

In the first half, researcher and author Dr. Jerome Corsi discussed his latest work about global warming and climate change and why he believes alarming disinformation is being spread to manipulate the public into accepting environmental policies that are economically catastrophic. The Earth is 4.6 billion years old and has gone through countless climate cycles, including ice ages, and much of this is related to the path of our planet as it travels in an elliptical orbit around the sun, he said. "This has nothing to do with carbon dioxide or burning hydrocarbon fuels," Corsi remarked.

He contends that the science behind the 'Green New Deal' is not legitimate and is based on anti-industrial "Neo-Marxist" ideology (a reduced version of the deal currently has support among Democrats). The underlying agenda politically, he continued, is to try and eliminate capitalism, as well as reduce the overall population. Corsi characterized the work of the late mathematician and meteorologist Edward Lorenz as demonstrating that weather is chaotic and that most of the assumptions in climate modeling are not precise enough to yield accurate information. Regarding the recent heat waves and record-breaking temperatures, Corsi pointed toward data from the 1930s as another warming period in the US, and that in geological time the last few decades are too short of a period to judge cycles.


In the latter half, C2C's investigative reporter Cheryll Jones presented her interview with Sue Bell, founder of Homeward Trails Animal Rescue in Virginia, which has become a safe haven for processing around 4000 beagles rescued from a puppy breeding mill. Bell detailed the massive efforts to find loving homes for these dogs, after working quietly behind the scenes for months to aid in the project. The dogs were retrieved from the Envigo breeding facility in Cumberland, Virginia (since closed), which had long supplied beagles for medical and other research for the National Institute of Health. Many of the dogs at the breeding facility were found to be mistreated, hungry, sick, or even dead.

Called the biggest dog rescue of its kind, a groundbreaking undercover investigation by PETA along with the White Coat Waste Project helped spark this historic domino effect at multiple levels, Bell recounted. This combined effort, including federal, state, and local action, eventually paved the way for the rescue, medical care, and ongoing re-homing of the surviving beagles in what has been labeled "Beaglegate." The beagle breed is thought to be ideal for scientific research because of their size and demeanor, Bell explained to Cheryll. Those that have lived in labs existed in cages surrounded by other dogs, and didn't get to experience the outdoors, so people that adopt them will need patience and understanding, she added.
