Jake Tapper was interviewing Sen. Rand Paul concerning the President pulling out of the Paris Agreement.
Tapper was doing the best he could to try and get Rand Paul to admit that we should be concerned about climate change and that Scientists are right when they say it is concerning and that man causes it.
Rand Paul is sharp and knows his stuff because he actually reads things and doesn’t repeat political talking points like most Politicians do.
Needless to say, Senator Paul crushed Tapper with a verbal smack-down.
Rand Paul pointed out, “We should try to constrain pollution. We should try to control pollution. I think we’ve been doing that for 50 or 60 years. And I think we should continue. But your previous guest sounded like, my goodness, the sky is falling, mass extinction. Really? I don’t think we should be alarmists about this. The planet is 4.5 billion years old. We have gone through great extremes of climate change natural and now we may have man-made influence as well.”
Paul is right when he talks about climate change being real, but how much of it is caused by man and how much is nature? Why should be worried about something to the point where we make unfair international treaties that take away jobes when we are uncertain?
Paul went on to say, “But these people, the question I always ask the alarmists is how much is nature and how much is man?” he continued. “They act as if it’s a given that man is the only source of climate change. My goodness, the great climate changes in our history happened before the industrial revolution. So is there climate change could man have an impact? Yes, but let’s not be such alarmists that if we don’t sign the Paris accord that there’s going to be mass extinction? That’s a ridiculous statement.”
