Phil Valentine

Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Phil Valentine is one of the “Heavy Hundred” top talkers in America. From Nashville, North Carolina (via Raleigh and as a program director of a station in Greensboro) to Nashville, Tennessee’s SuperTalk 99.7WTN, he has been a widely successful top radio host all throughout his career. After only a year, he had one of the highest rated morning shows in Nashville. In 1991, WLAC-AM allowed him to substitute for a weekend program. The next Monday, they fired the current morning host and Phil was to be his replacement. He hosted the morning talk show on WLAC-AM and the afternoon music show on WLAC-FM.

On his new movie: An Inconsistent Truth: The Movie They Don’t Want You to See:

Indoctrination of our youth on the issue of global warming is coming to an end if filmmaker Phil Valentine has anything to say about it. His award-winning documentary, An Inconsistent Truth, calls out Al Gore on the lies and deception that have dominated the discussion since the release of An Inconvenient Truth in 2006 and Valentine is on a crusade to educate the world about the facts. Valentine’s film not only rights the wrongs of Gore’s film; it explores the culture that drives the global warming movement as well as its motivations.

Start of Interview with Phil Valentine

Jason Hartman: It’s my pleasure to welcome Phil Valentine to the show. He is a nationally syndicated radio talk show host and the award winning creator of The Inconsistent Truth. He’s also an author and newspaper columnist. You can probably tell by the title because it rings a bell and harkens back to An Inconvenient Truth, which I’m not sure how much truth there is in that Inconvenient Truth, but we’ll discuss and debate that here now. Phil, how are you?

Phil Valentine: I’m fine Jason, how are you?

Jason Hartman: Good, good. And it’s good to have you. You’re coming to us from Nashville, TN today, right?

Phil Valentine: I am in music city USA, absolutely.

Jason Hartman: Great town, great place. So hey, An Inconsistent Truth, this has been debated and debated and debated. And there are so many layers to this issue of climate change, global warming… we’ve certainly all noticed how they’ve changed the name of it actually from global warming to climate change when I guess the warming wasn’t really happening. Where do you want to start with this whole topic? I’ve got lots of questions for you.

Phil Valentine: Well first of all, there’s a huge myth out there that CO2 is a pollutant and I think that that’s where we start. They try to convince us that we’re polluting the world with CO2, and CO2 is not a pollutant. It’s what we take in, it’s what plants take in, it’s what we exhale with every breath. And it’s a ridiculous notion to think that something as simple as CO2 that is used in everyday photosynthesis of a plant, albeit political, but in order to get people to rally around this cry of banning it or trying to do something about it, they have to vilify it. And Al Gore has done a masterful job of shortening carbon dioxide to just carbon to make it sound like it’s some sinister, ugly, dirty thing like a lump of coal or something. So he’s done a masterful job at that.

He’s also done a great job at melding carbon dioxide and smog. A lot of people don’t know that the smog has sulfur dioxide and ground level ozone, those sorts of things, but it does not contain CO2. So people believe that they’re actually cleaning up the planet by doing something about CO2, when CO2 is odorless, it’s colorless, and actually beneficial to the planet.

Jason Hartman: I was going to say as soon as you said that, the plants sure seem to like it, and how can an environmentalist say plants are bad or anything that plants like would be bad. You know the whole concept of being a tree hugger – well what do trees breathe? They breathe CO2.

Phil Valentine: That’s right. But you see people that run greenhouses – they pump CO2 into their greenhouses about 2-3 times the atmospheric level because they know CO2 is a great thing for their plants. They grow faster, hardier, bigger. So we need CO2. Matter of fact if we had more CO2 on the planet, we would all be better off but they want you to believe that CO2 is harmful and that it’s causing global warming when in fact there’s absolutely no evidence of that whatsoever. And now we have the 73 climate model that they’ve been using for the last 30 years that have now been all, every one of them, debunked over the last 10-15 years. The temperatures have been flat, and every one of the climate models was wrong. It had it 2-3 degrees warmer than we are now. So at some point people have to start to realize that they’ve been bamboozled.

Jason Hartman: And you know Phil, this logic just naturally has to lead to a terrifying conclusion. And that’s that people are bad, and people exhale, so the best way to reduce the CO2 levels is to ban people, isn’t it?

Phil Valentine: Well that’s basically what they’ve said. At the heart of the global warming issue and the movement is a ban or doing something about the population. They say this all the time. Al Gore has even said this. I’m not saying that everybody who recycles is trying to kill all people, but they do think that people are a virus on the planet and we’ve got too many people and we need to do something about it. I would say if they want to do something about it, they should start with themselves.

Jason Hartman: That’s exactly what I would say. Wouldn’t a real environmentalist just believe in suicide?

Phil Valentine: Exactly. Jump off a cliff and save the planet.

Jason Hartman: It’s one less person exhaling CO2. When I first heard about the whole global warming debate, I was ignorant of it and now I’m fairy educated about it, but back when I first heard about it I thought that they were talking about carbon monoxide, what comes out of your exhaust pipe of your car. And that seemed like a logical argument to me. Certainly we all want less pollution, right? But why don’t they attack carbon monoxide? That’s sort of an obvious one. It seems like it would be hard to argue with.

Phil Valentine: Well that’s the whole point. We got converters and smoke stack scrubbers, and we have the technology that will turn carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. If you want a purposely combust engine, all you’re going to get is carbon dioxide. It is what you’re looking for if you’re looking for turning something that was bad into something good. All the science has been with the converters and everything else to turn all the notches stuff into carbon dioxide, so now that’s the end result, so they figured well, this is the end result. This is something we can tax and that we can make money off of, and basically that’s what it boiled down to. It’s all about making money and they’re making a ton of it.

Jason Hartman: Right, and when they are making money in this type of money making scheme it means it enslaves another party. It has to take money from someone else. This is not capitalism in its true sense by any means because it doesn’t add value to anybody else. It’s not a fair exchange of value. If I want to buy something from you, Phil, I will gladly give you my money, happily do it, because I get something that to me is of greater value. And that’s a free market – that’s valuable. But they’re making money in a way that is not a free market. It is slavery basically.

Phil Valentine: Right, well what they’re basically doing is they’re trying to transfer wealth from the producers to the non-producers. And that would be either from individuals or from companies or countries. Anybody or anything that is producing, they want to take away because any product of a productive, whatever it is whether it’s a company or whether it’s a country, is going to be CO2. Because when you’re expending energy, that’s what it is. So the countries that don’t emit a lot of CO2 aren’t really producing a whole lot by definition. So if you can take the money from the producer and give it to the non-producer, you’ve found a clever way of redistributing the wealth without anybody really knowing what it is. And in the movie we look at not only the science, but we look at the scientist behind it.

We have one scientist, Dr. John Christie, who is actually a lead author of the IPCC, which is what these guys point to as unanimously serving a belief in all this, but we wanted to go beyond that and look at the culture of what draws these people to believe in all this despite the evidence out there, despite you and me knowing that CO2 is not a pollutant, they believe it with every fiber of their being and that’s their reason why. So we explore that and we find that it’s all about guilt and people wanting to matter. People want to have an impact, to think that their life wasn’t in vain and they have something that they can look back on their life and say, oh yes I made a difference in this life.

So if you can make them feel guilt about so-called polluting the planet, and then give them a way to do something about it, oh man that’s just perfect. These folks then have a purpose in life and they can die happy. So it’s one of those basic things in life – people looking for a purpose and these folks like Al Gore have managed to tap into that and exploit it.

Jason Hartman: I agree with that. People will join a cause just to be part of a cause without much thinking about it. It’s like Eric Hoffer’s book The True Believer. It’s just like this blind, it’s the sheeple, it’s the sheeple.

Phil Valentine: That’s exactly right.

Jason Hartman: So, I guess I want to back way up on this whole issue and ask a very fundamental question here. My very fundamental question… let’s back way up. Let’s not talk about whether global warming is even true or false or whether it’s happening or not, or who’s causing it or how it’s happening if it is, but the first question that I think has to be asked Phil is one that I’m sure you’ve asked. Assuming it is true, is it even bad in the first place? Say that the earth is warming, say that they’re right and it is happening. Forget about the cause, it’s just happening however it is. Is it bad? Isn’t that the first question we have to ask?

Phil Valentine: Yeah, and we actually have scientists who are asked that in the movie, and they say of course not. Of course it’s not bad. We look at the medieval warm period – the medieval warm period, without boring your listeners too much, ran from about 900AD to about 1300-1350AD. And during the medieval warm period, that’s when the Vikings populated Greenland. They didn’t name Greenland that as a joke – the southern part of Greenland was very green. And the medieval warm period was about 3 1/2 -4 degrees warmer than it is now. That’s when in Europe all the cathedrals were built and life was good. It was in the little ice age that followed the medieval warm period, and that ran from 1350-1850, that we saw all sorts of disease and plagues and things like this, and the Vikings were killed off in Greenland because of the ice. So yes, absolutely. Warming is better. There is nothing to be afraid of even if it’s happening.

Jason Hartman: There are people starving around the world. If warming is occurring, doesn’t it make more land arable to where it can be farmed and produce food?

Phil Valentine: Sure, sure. And far more people are killed by the cold than they are by the warmth. So I think it is to me, if you’re wanting to help people out, which I’m a big believer in helping people out especially in these third world countries. In part of the movie we went to Kenya and we looked at what was going on over there and trying to get these people the electricity they need. And people were literally dying every day because they don’t have enough electricity, they don’t have enough ways to keep themselves alive. And these people say we don’t need to develop. You need to just stay just like you are. They have a right to develop just like we have a right to develop. And to deny them that right, which is going on with a lot of these countries, they’re standing in the way of any kind of energy development, they’re giving them a death sentence and I think that’s on purpose.

Jason Hartman: Well, let’s talk about some of the poverty it creates for already disadvantaged poor people. It makes the prices of everything rise, it makes the cost of supplies and medicine increase… delve into that a bit, will you?

Phil Valentine: Well, yeah any time you’re going to put a tax on something you’re going to increase the price of it. That’s just a give-in. And people understand this when they see the energy crisis go on. We’re looking at what’s going on now with the war on coal, with this Obama administration, where they have shut down a record number of [00:13:54] and they intend to shut down as many as they can before they’re out of office. When they do this, knowing that they get 40-50% of their power from coal, there has to be something there to replace it or you’re going to have to have rolling black outs or just long term black outs. They don’t seem to care about that. Not only do we have the blackouts, but it’s a supply and demand society. We’re a capitalist society which is the best society on earth. It’s how things prosper. But it also drives prices up when there is less supply, or more demand, less supply you’re going to see prices go through the roof.

So yes, the people are disproportionately affected by higher prices, certainly the poor folks out there, the very people that these people report to want to protect, now are the ones that are going to have trouble with being able to keep the lights on if in fact there is electricity after they get through with the country.

Jason Hartman: Even offshore when we look at… I remember seeing on piece about this, and that was an African village that was very disadvantaged, needing medicine, needing all kinds of stuff. They needed to keep a refrigerator running to keep certain medicines cold. And this movement, this global warming movement as fictitious as it may be, made it very difficult to do that. And just in amazing ways it’s so pervasive. It impacts everybody around the planet. I don’t remember the specifics about that story, but pretty amazing.

Phil Valentine: Well it is. And that’s the problem, is anything and everything that they plan to do to mitigate or to solve this problem is going to hurt the poor disproportionately because they’re the ones who are going to have to ultimately pay. They say well, we’re going to sock it to the oil companies. It’s like the price of doing business. I try to get people to understand this about taxes. If you got rid of corporate tax, which is a different discussion, but if you got rid of the corporate tax and people say the corporations should be paying taxes. I’m going…Corporations don’t pay taxes – it’s a pan through. It’s a pass through to the consumer. If we were to eliminate the corporate tax now, the money that has been corporate tax, they would lower the price to be more competitive and then all of them would follow suit.

So, conversely, if you add a tax to something or add a fee, it’s going to drive the price up. They’re naturally going to charge more for it. This is the cost of doing business. Whether it’s labor or the cost of the product they’re selling, the cost of getting it to the market and all of that, then they factor in a profit margin and that’s where the price is. Divide that by the number of product and that’s what the price it. The more you add to that equation the higher the price is going to be and the more you’re going to disproportionately affect the pool, especially when it comes to energy.

Jason Hartman: Yeah. I’ve always said that, that corporations are nothing more than pass through entities. So if you restrict them, if you make it more expensive by raising the minimum wage, by lopping all sorts of regulations on them, by lopping all sorts of labor laws on them, all they will do is pass that price down to the consumer. And look, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out. Anybody can see that it’s true and you can see it in the international trade debate, which there are some fair questions here, but conceptually we know it’s true. Before the rise of China and before we started offshoring a lot of this production and manufacturing, it was more expensive to make things in America. Because America of course has a lot more regulation and higher paid workers.

I’m not saying that’s all bad – this is a complex issue for sure. But conceptually you can certainly see that it’s true. And so now you can go to Walmart and you can fill up your house with very inexpensive stuff that’s of rather high quality frankly, I don’t know why people really bash these imports, I think they make great products. They make Apple products and everybody loves those.

But now, you have higher unemployment in the US so certainly it has its consequences, no question but you can see that we’ve outsourced the pollution to China. The unions have lost their footing in a large degree because of China. The labor laws, the complex, difficult labor and Osha regulations here we’ve just outsourced that to China and gotten rid of it, gotten around it. And so you love it as a consumer, and it makes it obvious that these are just pass through entities. Because they’re competitive. If the regulations go down, one company will always step out of line and sell the product for less to gain an advantage on the other one. Then the other ones will have to follow as well, and the prices will drop. If the regulation goes up, the burden goes up, the carbon tax goes up, they start to raise prices and the other ones have to follow to maintain their margins. It is just a simple fact of economics.

Phil Valentine: And if we’re at an economic disadvantage now, imagine if we had some kind of a carbon tax and they had to tack that on too. The problem with these folks is they don’t understand, nor do they appreciate or even like capitalism. And I think that’s a the root of the problem here. A lot of these folks that are behind this movement, and again I’m not saying everybody who has fallen for it, because there are a lot of folks who just don’t know any better, and that’s part of what this film is about is to get the word out so that people can educate themselves.

I understand falling prey to the news media and everything else going on. It’s a hard thing to overcome. But the fact of the matter is that the basic people that are behind all of this just don’t like the capitalist system very much. They think it needs to be destroyed. And one sure fire way to destroy it is to destroy the engine inside of capitalism, which is energy. And if they can destroy energy as Newt Gingrich said in our film, you destroy the oil industry, you destroy the people that are opposed to it. So that’s what they’re trying to do.

Jason Hartman: Right, and then you destroy people’s lives. So I would even go further than what you said. You said they don’t like capitalism – I think they don’t like people. And it’s the logical conclusion. It’s funny – they should almost be looking at history and revering these mass dictators that committed mass genocide. Those people lowered the carbon footprint, right?

Phil Valentine: Well it’s funny you should mention that because we have in the movie where they were praising Genghis Khan for killing off a million people or a hundred million, whatever it was. And they did a study on the carbon footprint, the environmental impact of Genghis Khan killing all those people off and how it helped the environment. And I said in the movie, I guess Hitler would have gotten a green ribbon had it not been for those polluting ovens. So yeah, anybody who kills a bunch of folks off, they seem to think that’s a great thing.

Jason Hartman: Oh, the environmental heroes. Maybe they can give them a posthumous Nobel Prize to Joseph Stalin and chairman Mao, right? This is just absurdity.

Phil Valentine: No kidding. But that’s the way they operate, and that’s the way they think. And a lot of people don’t realize that they are part of all of this by joining into this notion that we’re destroying the planet. They are helping these people with their ultimate goal, which is to destroy capitalism, and kill off a good amount of folks on the earth because they think that we’re a virus.

Jason Hartman: Wow. That is one scary thing. There’s an old saying about the environmental movement, and that is green trees have red roots. Have you heard that one?

Phil Valentine: No, I haven’t but I like it.

Jason Hartman: Red meaning communism.

Phil Valentine: Absolutely. One of our guys says we threw these people out the window red, they came back in through the front door green. And that’s exactly what it is.

Jason Hartman: Yeah, boy. That’s a scary thing. Well what other elements of this debate or of this issue should we discuss Phil?

Phil Valentine: I think we need to discuss the myths that are out there, because I think that’s what scares people. First of all, you have people say oh well we’re killing off polar bears. Polar bears are thriving. The polar bear population since the 1980s has actually exploded so there’s no problem with the polar bears. They think that all of the sea ice is melting when actually we’ve had, as we do cyclically on the planet, the arctic ice has been diminishing somewhat since we’ve had satellite readings since 1979, but we also knew the same thing was happening because of newspaper reports in the 1920s. And we have explorers who were up in the arctic in the 1950s that have submarines bobbing up and down in the Arctic Ocean in march in an iceless sea. We also know that this year there’s 60% more ice in the arctic than there was a year ago. So it is a fluctuating, cyclical, natural occurrence.

And at the same time nobody wants to talk about the south pole, because the south pole has actually been increasing in ice. It’s at record levels of ice. So if you add the two together, you come up with pretty much average for ice. There’s not an ice problem. And on top of that, the ice in the arctic is floating so when it melts it has enough induced sea level. So the sea levels aren’t rising. But they’re just trying to freak everybody else out about that. Hurricanes are not getting more intense or more frequent, they’re actually getting less so.

So all of these things that the environmentalists have been able to hang their hat on, all these things are falling to pieces and people are starting to realize. What we want to do with this movie is give people who understand common sense to come out of the closet, not be ashamed to say look, this doesn’t make sense. None of these [00:23:51] make sense, and we give them the ammunition to go forth and make their argument.

Jason Hartman: Well Phil, one of the points about the ice melting issue that has just blown my mind, when you talk about sea ice people believe this complete silliness. You’d think that they never had a glass of ice water before in their life. If you have a glass of ice water and you don’t drink it and you let the ice melt, the glass does not overflow.

Phil Valentine: That’s right.

Jason Hartman: They think because the ice melts, the oceans will rise. Now of course if the ice is on land and it melts and puts water into the ocean, that would be correct.

Phil Valentine: That’s the Antarctic. And we have record amounts of ice there. It’s not melting. It’s getting more plentiful. So you’ve got to understand that it’s the same amount of water on the planet, and if it’s frozen in snow… in Antarctica there’s less water out there to be in the ocean, so then none of this makes sense that the sea levels are rising. There’s no argument to be made for it, but again, they don’t care about logic, they don’t care about anything other than whatever fits their agenda, whatever it is they are trying to do. to me it is disingenuous when you’ve got somebody like Al Gore for 4 or 5 houses with a house boat, flying around in a private jet trying to tell the rest of us that we’re polluting too much and we need to lessen our carbon footprint.

Jason Hartman: Well let’s talk a little bit about the hypocrisy of Al Gore, who is the undisputed leader of this movement, who has become very wealthy by exploiting this and fear mongering. His electric bill is about 12 or 13 hundred dollars per month. That’s probably 12 or 13 times the average American I would assume to keep cool his big mansion. You look at Ariana Huffington who came out with a statement years ago that people should stop driving SUVs because they consume too much energy and she lives in an 88 square foot mansion. Well, that’s one of her mansions – I’m sure she has more of them.

But there’s no talk about the cost to heat and cool that and the energy it takes to maintain that and build it first of all, just the materials and the environmental impact of building these things. I was having this debate with one of my friends who’s liberal and believes in global warming. It was a very smart person by the way. It was kind of shocking that he would believe in this. He says, Jason come on, Al Gore is a world famous person. He’s not going to live in a shack. That’s unreasonable.

Phil Valentine: Oh, that’s right. But he doesn’t have to live in a 10 thousand square foot house. In the movie we actually go over his electricity bills. He started off using 20 times the power of the average national house. So he decided to green his home. He put in geothermal sort of thing. So now he’s only 10 times higher than the average national house. And when he did that he got some kind of a green award from some organization for being environmentally friendly. It’s ridiculous.

Jason Hartman: This is mind boggling. There is almost no legitimate attempt even to not be a hypocrite. If I were Al Gore, I would be worried about that criticism. I wouldn’t want people to call me a hypocrite. I would try to abide by the stuff I’m preaching. There’s not even really any attempt.

Phil Valentine: Well nobody calls him on it except for people like you and me and he doesn’t care about us. The people that follow him, the people who are obsessed with him, he is essentially the prophet of this cult, not one person in this cult is calling him on it. They’re like your friend – they make excuses for Al Gore. Well, he’s an important guy. Well, Ed Begley, Jr. is a very famous guy, very famous actor and he lives in a small house, recycles everything, drives electric cars. He’s actually living the life. There’s no reason why if you’re famous you have to live in five different houses.

Jason Hartman: Al Gore doesn’t drive a Prius, is that what you’re saying Phil?

Phil Valentine: Well he does have one. But Al Gore’s wife Tipper, when they were together, she also had a muscle car that they would ride around the neighborhood in, and actually we heard this from a very good source: Al would scrunch down in the passenger’s seat so nobody would see him as he drove away in this muscle car.

Jason Hartman: That’s unbelievable. It has always been amazing to me how people on the left are willing to tolerate these double standards by their elites. It’s like under communism you have this like elite class, and all of the little people, the hoi polloi, were just supposed to eke out a living and follow the dictates of their great leaders and the elite class who live in luxury and take, take, take from the rest. It’s amazing. I just don’t know how people in a society where you have – I don’t want to say a free press, but a semi-free press we certainly know from the Obama AP scandal recently here – how Obama like Nixon, I’ll give you one side on the right and one on the left – keeps an enemies list and uses the government to keep tabs on these people. Now everybody is under the thumb of the NSA obviously.

But how do they explain that? Why do they tolerate that? Like my friend saying, oh he’s a world class guy – he’s important. He’s not going to live in a shack. Well, he lives like a king. This is like a kingdom.

Phil Valentine: Well I’ll tell you what. Liberals, I have found out through my many years of studying this species, they think with their emotions and conservatives think with logic. So even the most intelligent people like your friend who’s obviously a smart guy, but when it comes to political issues or social issues, he puts his logical mind in neutral and goes to his emotional mind for answers because he wants to feel like he’s caring and cares about folks. And I would submit to you that conservatism is the most caring way to look after folks because it makes people insist that people be self-sufficient.

My wife and I were talking about this, we went to the see him this weekend and it was a great visit, but they were sort of rushing us out and she said I was watching some [00:30:55] reading something and they said you need to be able to judge how well you’ve done as a parent by how independent your children turn out to be. And so we were both taking that as sort of a compliment. Not that we had been bad parents and they don’t want to see us anymore, but now they’ve gotten to a point where they’re independent, they want to live their lives.

That’s what we want for everybody in American, is independence and you want to live your own life. You wouldn’t do this to your worst enemy, put them on all this welfare, make them dependent. But a lot of these people don’t understand the difference and they think these people are just too stupid to take care of themselves, but when you get the people like your friend he wants to feel like he’s caring about somebody. So the way to care about somebody is to take care of them so he lets his emotions kick in and he throws logic out the window. Logically we think about global warming as an issue and CO2 being a pollutant. Logically you can’t make that work, but emotionally, oh it just tugs at you that we’re destroying the planet so we’ve got to do something about it. That’s I think the problem. People are thinking too much with emotion.

Jason Hartman: Yeah, well that’s a good point. Phil give out your website and tell people where they can see the film.

Phil Valentine: Actually you can get it on Amazon.com if they prefer to do that. Or you can go to AnInconsistentTruth.com. That’s the website for the movie. You can see the scientists that we have and the links to their credentials and things like this and some other things. We have some YouTube videos about the movie, and you can order from there too but if you’d like to go straight to Amazon.com, that’d be fine too.

Jason Hartman: Fantastic. What else would you like people to know about this? I think what we want people to know about this and what we want people take away from this is that there’s no consensus. People have been bullied into believing that there’s a consensus and that there’s only one side to it. Once people see this movie, which by the way is fairly entertaining, it’s got the light moments and it’s got some funny stuff so I think people will enjoy it. But once you walk away from watching this movie, you’ll say there’s no way there’s a consensus. This issue is wide open. And that’s what we want to do. We want to keep this dialogue open. The best thing when it comes to any issue is to be able to evaluate both sides. They want to cut off our side because they know that when people see it, they’re going to believe it.

Phil Valentine: Yeah, that’s a very good point. Well, Phil Valentine thank you so much for joining us today and keep getting the word out there and telling people more about The Inconsistent Truth or actually I should say the proper title, An Inconsistent Truth. And this is important stuff to know regardless of which side you fall on now, you should know both sides of the debate obviously. That’s the only reasonable way, is to hear both sides of it. So Phil Valentine, thanks for joining us today.

Jason Hartman: Well thanks very much for having me.
