Fox's Tucker Carlson Responds To Obama’s Climate Change Order With Denialism (Video)
"Fox & Friends" reported on President Barack Obama’s executive order to elevate climate change policy and implement a task force to examine federal spending to protect cities from extreme weather events on Saturday morning.
“If you want to do something where the press won’t cover it you do it late at night on a Friday,” said “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Clayton Morris.
The Nov. 1 executive order gives the administration control over climate change policy establishes a "a high-level task force of state and local leaders to offer advice to the federal government."
“That means that the infrastructure related to forest fires, flooding, any sort of big storm is now going to be given over to seven governors, all Democrat by the way, except for one Republican governor from Guam, so all Democratic governors in charge of this, who will now be able to dole out money and force other businesses to change their structure based on climate change," said Morris.
Guam, as a small island, is highly vulnerable to climate change. Rising sea levels is sinking the island and there is no place on their island for refuge.
Co-host Tucker Carlson denied that global warming is actually real stating that he love "when congress pretends to be scientists."
“The truth is the climate hasn’t risen, temperatures have not risen in the past several years, they have gone down," said Carlson. He said "an emerging scientific consensus that we may be in for a period of global cooling caused not by greenhouse gases but by fluctuations in solar energy -- sun spots."
According to NASA there is no dispute among scientists that climate change exists and that human contribute to it.
“Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities, and most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position,” reports NASA. “The following is a partial list of these organizations, along with links to their published statements and a selection of related resources.”
Carlson said the president’s order is “not rooted in science.”
"What they don't know definitively is the truth,” Carlson said. “And no one wants to admit -- maybe there's some things they don't fully understand. Why not just admit that?"
