ICYMI: Former EPA Administrators Disagree with Obama Statement on Climate
June 18, 2014
In 2012, President Obama made a public statement about global temperatures that has since been proved to be untrue (here and here):
During today's Senate Environment & Public Works Subcommittee on Clean Air and Nuclear Safety hearing entitled, "Climate Change: The Need to Act Now," Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), the Subcommittee's top Republican, asked four former Administrators of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to raise their hand if they agreed with President Obama's statement. None of the four witnesses raised their hand, and all remained silent.
Sen. Sessions: "So, I would ask each of our former [EPA] Administrators if any of you agree that is an accurate statement [from President Obama] on climate. So if you do, raise your hand. Thank you. The record will reflect no one raised their hands."
