STEVE DOOCY: So Laura, the president's been over there talking climate change and he has linked it to terror. And if we want to stop terror we've got to cool down the planet.
ELISABETH HASSELBECK: Right. He said what greater rejection of those who would tear down our world than marshaling our best efforts to save it.
LAURA INGRAHAM: Yeah, and at least 4 percent of Americans agree with him. This is not, people are like this is about climate change, there's going to be some historic agreement. Let me just get everybody focused on what this really is. This entire effort in Paris is about setting up global rules of governance. Rules that will, if instituted -- which we know they won't be -- but if ever instituted would mean that we have less control over our own destiny as a country than we do today. Because Congress will have limited ability to change any treaty. Again, I don't think it's going to happen. But if these rules should go into place, we should expect the same compliance from countries like China that we get from China in deals like the World Trade Organization and the World Trade Organization Treaty. So, if people want less sovereignty in the United States, less independence, less oversight, our congressional authority to be meaningful, then we should all be excited about what's going on with 150 leaders in Paris. But this has nothing to do with terrorism. It has everything to do with bringing America's economy down, hurting the fossil fuel industry, etc., etc. One of the few sectors that's actually growing jobs and still paying people decent wages in the United States. So forgive me if I'm not all hot and bothered by the Paris events.
BRIAN KILMEADE: Yeah, and I'm sorry if I wasn't paying attention. I was looking up different SUVs I could buy because I'm like most of America. Our cars are getting bigger because gas prices are going lower. Nobody is paying attention.
