Florida Sen. Marco Rubio responded to ongoing international climate change negotiations, noting “even the scientists admit, we don’t believe it would make a dramatic impact anytime in the near future on any trends in the climate.”

“The United States has already significantly reduced carbon emissions in comparison to other countries in the world. All the growth in carbon emission over the next 30 years is going to come out of India and China and other developing countries. And they don’t intend to do anything about it no matter what document they are going to sign.”

“What deal has China ever followed through on?” Rubio posed. “They are not going to hamstring their economy.”

“I don’t think they are going to arrive at any measures that are going to solve any problem” in Paris, Rubio said.
