Rivera, a correspondent-at-large for Fox News, called the deal “aspirational” and “idealistic.”

“You aspire for total control?” co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Rivera. “You aspire to support the people that don’t work?”

“No, you aspire to get rid of pollution, Brian,” Rivera replied. “You aspire to get rid of traffic. You aspire to make the world environmentally a place where it is sustainable.”

“There is evidence that something has to change to keep those temperatures from continuing to go up,” he added.
