STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): It sounds like you don't think [the Green New Deal] plan is a good one. What's your major problem with it? 

PATRICK MOORE (AUTHOR): Well, it's a silly plan. That's why I suggested [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] was a pompous little twit. "Twit," meaning, "silly" in the British lexicon and, "pompous," meaning, "arrogant." She really rubbed me the wrong way when she said she's "the boss," because she can make up a proposal that's completely ridiculous and no one else did. And that is what's wrong about this. 

In fact, the whole climate crisis, as they call it, is not only fake news, it's fake science. There is no climate crisis. There is weather and climate all around the world. And, in fact, carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life. That's where the carbon comes from in carbon-based life, which is all life on land and in the sea. And, not only that, a little bit of warming would not be a bad thing for myself, being a Canadian, and the people in Russia wouldn't mind a little couple of degrees warmer either. 

DOOCY: But, Patrick, you know, there are so many scientists who have come out and say -- and have said that climate change is real. 

MOORE: Yes, of course climate change is real, it's been happening since the beginning of time, but it's not dangerous and it's not made by people. Climate change is a perfectly natural phenomenon.
