  Robert Rowland (NI), blue-card answer. – You are dealing with a hypothetical which may or may not happen, that’s it and I can't prove that and you can’t. But what I can prove is that the climate policies are destroying jobs. Come up to places like Hartlepool, come to Scunthorpe, and you’ll see mass unemployment due to these artificially high carbon prices set by politicians and not by economists. And if you moved to the Green New Deal you’ll continue to see the erosion of jobs and manufacturing which will all be offshored to China. We now produce in the UK 1.1% of all CO2. We’ve offshored it to China.
