Can you guess who said this?

We’ve talked about Kyoto a lot. That’s been out there. It’s the big boogie man in the last few years. Kyoto is dead. Kyoto is absolutely dead. It’s not going to happen. We’re taking steps right now to reverse every piece of paper that EPA has put together where they could call CO2 a pollutant under the Clean Air Act. That’s going to be nailed down in the next few months … Now, having said that, mercury, in my opinion, is very Kyoto-like in its potential impacts. Mercury to me is the issue that scares me the most of the ones that are out there right now.
