(LAUGHTER)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

WATTERS: And you're in my world right now.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE 10: Oh, fabulous. I'm so happy to be here.

WATTERS: I don't buy that.

(LAUGHTER)

(END VIDEOTAPE)

O'REILLY: Yes, I'm not buying that either. Here's Watters.

(LAUGHTER)

Now, the first question, China is the world's biggest polluter, right.

WATTERS: Right. And then U.S., number two, and India, Japan, Russia.

O'REILLY: OK, those are the four.

WATTERS: Right.

O'REILLY: China, India, Japan -- I'm surprised by Japan.

WATTERS: Yes, they're big. They're number five.

O'REILLY: And they kill all the dolphins and sharks over there, too.

WATTERS: That's not very friendly.

O'REILLY: Yes, they're not. And Russia.

WATTERS: Russia is a big polluter.

O'REILLY: Big country, you know.

WATTERS: Yes, a lot of people.

O'REILLY: Where are we on that pollution list.

WATTERS: We're number two. I think China is about 10 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide.

O'REILLY: So, we're the second biggest polluter?

WATTERS: We're second but we're about half of China, so they're blowing us underwater.

O'REILLY: Still, we've got to get better at this.

WATTERS: Yes, we do.

O'REILLY: Now, on the global temperature rise --

WATTERS: Right, right.

O'REILLY: -- we had it on the screen -- it's almost flat in the first 35 years.

WATTERS: It's basically zero. Over the last 100 years, it's only about one percent increase. But Miller has a great fun about this.

He says, about 300 years ago, the guys that were using leeches and rubbing sticks together for fire, --

O'REILLY: Yes.

WATTERS: Do you trust those guys to get an accurate reading --

O'REILLY: To give you the accurate temperature in 1901.

WATTERS: Right.

O'REILLY: OK, but you know, they're all -- the polar bears, they're sweating up there in New Finland -- I mean, something.

And the final thing was biggest polluter, car and cow.

WATTERS: Yes.

O'REILLY: And the cow because of the flatulence.

WATTERS: The methane. It's 20 times as bad for the environment --

O'REILLY: Twenty times.

WATTERS: -- as carbon dioxide.

O'REILLY: It's cows.

WATTERS: That's right.

O'REILLY: What are we going to do with the cows.

WATTERS: Buy up all the beef like the guy said.

(LAUGHTER)

O'REILLY: Yes, buy up all the beef. Everybody was good out there except for the one guy who's a little out of it.

All right, Jesse Watters, everybody. We'll see him later on this week.
