NC Gov McCrory Asked About “Climate Change” In Wake Of Winter Storms
(WRAL) Appearing on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” Sunday to talk about the winter storm that shut down the state last week, Gov. Pat McCrory sidestepped a pointed question about his position on climate change.
The question from host Bob Schieffer came at the end of a segment on North Carolina’s response to the storm.
“Governor, a couple of years ago, you made a remark that caught a lot of people’s attention. You said that global warming is ‘in God’s hands,'” Schieffer said. “After what you’ve – going through this thing, do you still feel that way? Is there something we ought to be doing about it in the meantime?”
“I think someone took a chop off the total sentence there,” McCrory responded.: “I will say this: I feel that there’s always been climate change. The debate is, really, how much of it is man-made and how much will it cost to have any impact on climate change.
“My main argument is, let’s clean up the environment, and as mayor and now as governor, I’m spending my time cleaning our air, cleaning our water, cleaning the ground,” he continued. “I think that’s where the argument should be on both the left and the right, and if that has an impact on climate change, good. But I think that’s where the real argument should be, is doing what we can to clean up our environment.
“We also have to look for cost-effective ways to do it because, as governor, we’re walking that fine line of keeping our environment clean but also continuing economic recovery and making sure things like power are affordable for the consumer,” the governor concluded.
Amazing. North Carolina has suffered from many winter storms this year (like most of the states), and just saw one Wednesday that was brutal (but fortunately short lived in terms of effects) and Shieffer asked about “climate change”. But, then, these Warmist wankers actually believe that snow and cold and ice are caused by warmth. Now that is anti-science.
McCory makes a good point about focusing on real environmental issues such as clean air and water. But, this was all part of a greater focus by the media on “climate change” Sunday. I noted the exchange between Marsha Blackburn and Bill Nye on Meet The Press (Amy Ridenour has more detail on the exchange). McCrory was also asked similar questions on ABC’s This Week.
