It’s very real

President Trump tweeted “It’s happened again,” referring to Amy Klobuchar’s “bad timing.” She spoke of climate change, while delivering a speech announcing her candidacy for the presidency, all while standing in the midst of a Minnesota snowstorm.

Amy tweeted back “Science is on my side Donald. Looking forward to debating you about Climate Change and many other issues.” Amy is right.

Our president is like “The Emperor Who Has No Clothes” concerning climate change. Every National Academy of Science throughout the world agrees that climate change is real, human caused, and is already a threat to civilization. Every scientific academy in major industrial nations and all scientific societies in the United States, to weigh in on the matter, agree as well.

There are roughly 10,000 peer-reviewed science publications in the world. Out of millions of papers in these publications, the infamous 3 percent “scientist” deniers have no published papers … based upon studies conducted in the field of climate science, no data collected, no experiments conducted – and no Nobel prize winners. Even the National Climate Assessment Reports issued by agencies the president oversees disagree with him.

Ignorance is our president’s only honest excuse. Climate change is not a hoax.
