RUSH LIMBAUGH: Even among you leftists who listen daily, among those of you who listen to this program, you should be under no -- you should have no doubts that this is all a hoax and is all phony. I've given evidence for 25 years. And the proof that liberalism is an agenda rather than a series of honest concepts can be found in people's reaction to this. Let me try it a different way. What's going on in Paris is an attack on capitalism. And every one of you who support whatever is involved in climate change and limiting American and other Western nations' use of energy, you ought to be celebrating that, you're anti-capitalists. Energy is the lifeblood of capitalism. Oil is the fuel of the engine of freedom. It makes perfect sense that a bunch of leftists would oppose it. It makes perfect sense that a bunch of socialists would want to take issue with anything that demonstrates the success of capitalism. And energy is the lifeblood of freedom, energy, and it's the free flow of energy at market prices is the lifeblood of capitalism, of freedom and democracy the world over. And that is what they want to bring down. And the way they want to bring it down is by taxing energy to the point that people can't afford to use it. It's about weakening the United States and other Western democracies. Its about creating a lesser world under the guise of a fairer and more equitable world. Because there isn't any warming, and certainly no warming that can be laid at the feet of human beings. We're not warming, there hasn't been any in 20 years. And the temperature record that says there has been has probably been faked. Its one of the greatest scandals, it may be the biggest worldwide scandal, political scandal in world history. What has been done to the temperature record, how it's been altered and doctored to prove, quote unquote, that there has been warming. There hasn't been any.
