Sarah Huckabee Sanders says that the federal government’s latest climate change report, which outlined how global warming will cost the United States hundreds of billions of dollars in damage, is “not based on facts.”
“The president is certainly leading on what matters most in this process and that’s on having clean air and clean water. In fact, the United States continues to be a leader on that front,” Sanders told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.
“Even Obama’s undersecretary for science didn’t believe the radical conclusions of the report that was released,” she added. “You have to look at the fact that this report is based on the most extreme modeled scenario which contradicts long-established trends. Modeling the climate is an extremely complicated science that is never exact.”
Sarah Sanders responds to Trump saying he doesn’t believe a federal report that climate change will impact the economy: “We think that this the most extreme version and it’s not based on facts … it’s based on modeling which is extremely hard to do” https://t.co/wcQ6ydSciD pic.twitter.com/EVCpomUHIY
