Donald Trump shows why he is an all-around danger to all of the world. His response to the scientist on climate change and science is embarrassing.
Trump, the anti-science president who denies climate change
The problem with Donald Trump is that he does not know how much he does not know. And unfortunately, those who serve him are using that to get their will, climate change be-damned.
CNBC reported this new episode of national embarrassment as follows.
A California environmental official challenged President Donald Trump to believe and follow the science on climate change after Trump suggested that record-breaking temperatures in the state would cool down on their own.
“It’ll start getting cooler. You just watch,” Trump said after Wade Crowfoot, California’s secretary for natural resources, urged him and others not to “put our head in the sand” and simply ignore the warming climate.
Trump’s remark during a roundtable in McLellan Park, California, on the wildfires that have engulfed huge swaths of the state, generated laughs from some of the participants.
But Crowfoot responded: “I wish science agreed with you.”
Trump, with a smirk, shot back: “OK, well, I don’t think science knows, actually.”
The White House declined CNBC’s request for further comment on the president’s remarks.
Crowfoot tweeted later Monday: “It actually won’t get cooler Mr. President. #ClimateChangeIsReal.”
Remember, people are already voting. We do not need to be fearful, scared, or concerned. We just need to encourage most affected by this president, — which is most Americans — to vote.
