Beck Talks With ‘Firenado’ Filmmaker About Taking a Stand on Global Warming Beliefs
TheBlaze has brought you the stunning footage of the so called “firenado” — a whirling dust devil on fire shot in the Australian outback by filmmaker Chris Tangey. More recently we spoke with Tangey about how he was contacted (twice) by Al Gore’s team hoping to use the footage for climate change presentations.
Ultimately, Tangey researched climate change and knowing that this fire vortex was not the result of global warming, he told Gore’s representatives no.
On Friday, Glenn Beck hosted Tangey on his morning radio show where he explained the cirumstances of the tornado and what transpired with Gore’s Climate Reality Project.
After doing his research, Tangey said on the show, that he “came to the conclusion that I had to say no,” because the event of the fire whirl had nothing to do with global warming. Tangey describes it as a “highly localized event that really had nothing to do with weather let alone global warming.”
Listen to Tangey on Beck’s radio show where he describes the circumstances around the “firenado”:
Beck thanked Tangey for taking a stand for what he believed in.
“In the world where people will go for a fast buck, for you to be responsible for what you have is inspiring.”
