ECUADOR'S PRESIDENT RAFAEL CORREA: "An environmental debt needs to be paid." An international court for environmental justice should be set up. "It is not understandable that we have courts to force countries to pay financial debts but we do not have a court to enforce environmental debts."
ROBERT MUGABE, PRESIDENT OF ZIMBABWE: "Developed countries are being miserly ... they burden us for cleaning up the mess they have created."
'If anything, some say, the bloodshed could make countries more determined to reach a deal to address a problem that's widely seen as a factor that contributes to conflict. "There may be even more awareness of how important it is to address climate change, given the impact of climate change on the stability of countries," said Dutch climate envoy Michel Rentenaar.
Morano on Obama claiming a UN climate treaty will be a rebuke to ISIS: "Obama is essentially saying 'Take that ISIS, we are going to hamstring our economies, limit our growth, kill our jobs, destroy our energy sectors, and centrally plan our economy.' That will really show ISIS. They will run in fear."
President Obama declared Tuesday that next week’s climate change summit in Paris would be a “powerful rebuke” to terrorists, speaking alongside French President Francois Hollande at a joint news conference. “Next week, I will be joining President Hollande and world leaders in Paris for the global climate conference,” Obama said during his prepared remarks, which focused mostly on the efforts to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
“What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be, when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children,” he added.
Coleman: 'There is no significant man-made global warming now and there is little possibility -- almost zero possibility -- of any in the future. This is science gone bad. It has become political. It has become an environmental movement.
The Prince reminds me somewhat of Al Gore here in the U.S. -- a lifetime devoted to something that is science and they are not scientists. They have had the lemonade and drunk it fully. I am sure they believe and they are sincere, but they are dead wrong.'

UP: 'Increasingly warmer temperatures throughout the world may produce a trend toward dictatorial governments, in the opinion of Dr. Clarence A. Mills, professor of experimental medicine at the University of Cincinnati.
In fact, Dr. Mills believes that the rise to power of Adolf Hitler in German and Benito Mussolini in Italy may be due in part to the gradually warming temperature of the world. People are more docile and easily led in warm weather than in cold, Dr. Mills insists.
Dr. Mills is author of a theory that climate has a marked effect on human growth, stature, sex development and disease resistance."
