Rove: Climate Change Treaty ‘BS’ Because ‘We’ll All Be Dead’ By 2080
Why worry about what the world is like when we’re all dead?
“We’ll all be dead and very few people sitting in Paris will be alive at that point, I suspect, when we get to 2080,” he opined. “The United States has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions. It has done so, not because some international treaty, we have put the focus on energy efficiency, we’re a market economy, we’re a wealthy country that can afford to do this. And we have done it.”
“What we are now saying to emerging economies, ‘Keep your people poor, keep them in poverty because you cannot use cheap fuels, namely natural gas, coal and other fossil fuels to power your economy.’ And it’s ridiculous.”
