JEDEDIAH BILA (GUEST CO-HOST): I see this and I see, in my mind, kids being used as propaganda. Obviously this lawsuit has been a long time coming. This isn't something that just popped up overnight. Do they have any kind of case here though?
STEVE MILLOY (TRUMP EPA TRANSITION TEAM): Well, you're right. I mean, these are kids being used by adults as human shields to advance their political agenda. This is ideological child abuse. It's got nothing to do with the climate. It's about advancing a political cause. They have no case. You know, it may go a couple rounds in the ninth circus, which is, you know, more of a circus than a court. But, when it gets to the Supreme Court, I'm confident the Supreme Court will say this is a political question, that, if we are going to do anything on climate, it should be decided by Congress, not by the courts.
MILLOY: Even if you believe the junk science climate hysteria mantra, the United States is a very small part of global emissions. There's nothing the United States can do to change global climate or the weather. It's just ridiculous.
BILA: It seems to be a trend now, that particularly people on the left are using, which is that -- and it's not new, remember, you saw when Obamacare was signed in, you saw a child standing next to President Obama. But when it comes to climate issues, people on the left seem to be utilizing young people because they can then say, our future is at stake, it's very compelling if those politicians negate that or are dismissive.
