MICHAEL KNOWLES: Ironically, there was a study that came out of Carnegie Mellon University in 2015 which showed that meatless diets are actually far worse for the environment than the regular meat-filled diets. 

They increase emissions, they increase energy use, they increase water use, but none of that matters because the climate hysteria movement is not about science. 

If it were about science, it would be led by scientists rather than by politicians and a mentally ill Swedish child who is being exploited by her parents and by the international left. 

CHRIS HAHN: How dare you. 

KNOWLES: So, what you're seeing here is a political movement and a religious movement, and it's fulfilling religious and political goals of the left but it isn't doing very much for science. 

HARRIS FAULKNER (GUEST HOST): Chris, you had a visceral reaction to that. Go ahead.

HAHN: Yeah, I mean, you're a grown man and you're attacking a child. Shame on you. She's trying to do what she thinks is right -- 

KNOWLES: I'm not, I'm attacking the left for exploiting a mentally ill child.

HAHN: Relax, skinny boy. I got this. OK? You're attacking a child, you're a grown man.
