JESSE WATTERS (HOST): So it is a pyramid scheme, climate change. If you think about, you have the media, the politicians, and the academics at the top, and then at the bottom, you have all of us, the taxpayers. So academics realized early on that the more papers they put out saying that climate change was caused by humans and the world was going to blow up in two years if we don't do something about it, they were going to get more grant money from the politicians.

And so, the media takes these research papers and then they report them and then they get big ratings because everybody gets scared and everybody gets nervous, and then the politicians scare the heck out of you and said "Get rid of big oil," we need to go green, and then they throw all of our money around at all of their donors and all of their investors. 

So they're all making all of this money by telling us something that's not happening. We have this big climate change whistleblower on last night who said she's been ostracized because she reported that maybe the Earth is warming a little bit, but the human impact is really not much and the fact that it's warming, we got this. It's not Armageddon. And she has been smeared as a "denier" and all of her grants dried up and no one wants to talk to her in the scientific community anymore because that's when the money stops, if you start telling the truth.
