"Using Nordhaus’s model assumptions, if the World as a whole fulfilled the Paris Climate Agreement collectively with optimal policies, then the world would be worse off than if it did nothing. That is due to most countries pursuing little or no actual climate mitigation policies. Within this context, pursuing any costly climate mitigation policies will make a country worse off than doing nothing. Assuming political leaders have the best interests of their country at heart, and regardless of whether they regard climate change a problem, the optimal policy strategy is to impose as little costly policy as possible for maximum appearance of being virtuous, whilst doing the upmost to get other countries to pursue costly mitigation policies."

Wash Times: Climate Depot’s Marc Morano said the emails show that “climate activists have long planned on using schoolkids to agitate for their fear campaign and regulatory ‘solutions.’” ... “These kids have been indoctrinated in climate doomsday nonsense since kindergarten, and now they are being encouraged to skip school so that the federal government can ‘solve’ climate change,” Mr. Morano said in an email.Mr. Morano criticized the national exposure.

"Perry is a useful fool in wanting to help the Marxist plotter Occasional Cortex. And wanting to help China reduce its emissions is Children’s Crusade-level wishful thinking." He is a useful fool in wanting to help the Marxist plotter Occasional Cortex...The reason Donald Trump won the Republican nomination in 2016 was because the rest of the field were spineless invertebrates. One of the most spineless was Rick Perry."
"We depend on fossil fuels, because they exhibit five characteristics that result in their superiority over all other potential energy sources, including: power density (the amount of power produced divided by volume), widespread availability, storability, ease of transport, and cost."
