"We go to zero emissions in this country, and if China doesn't follow us, we're nowhere. We've just ruined our economy, and we're nowhere. We make mistakes here, and we have a real problem. We talk about that we should lead, then people will follow, but that's kind of silly. China's not going to follow us because we're the United States. . . . You say, 'Shut down your plants' -- well, that's going to be a short conversation. They've got $2 trillion invested in their plants and they still aren't feeding all their people. If we were China, we wouldn't shut our plants down either."
