GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): When we’re talking about climate, you can’t just pick and choose one part of the earth, and go “Oh my god! Did you see the ice, there’s less ice here.” But then you find out, there’s more ice over here. They never tell you the measurements all around the globe.

Okay? No one is saying that climate isn’t changing. What we are saying is that the business model is a monumental grift.

HAROLD FORD JR. (CO-HOST): The climate has changed for the worse over the last 20 years. Can we --

GUTFELD: The problem is it's also changed for the better. In fact, if you want to look at the data --

FORD: Because there's not a place where there's more ice, I will just say that.

GUTFELD: No, but let's put it this way: More people die from cold weather than warm weather. So if you're just going to use the ultimate variable, which is lifespan, you would be happy if the planet gets slightly warmer because that makes areas more livable for people. People don't live in frozen areas. They live in warm areas. Sometimes it gets too hot, they got to get out.
