President Trump tackled global warming on CBS 60 Minutes … and got it right!

Marc Morano posted a point-by-point analysis at CFACT’s Climate Depot that reveals the President’s remarks were “scientifically, politically and economically accurate.”

Examples:

Lesley Stahl told the President: “I wish you could go to Greenland, watch these huge chunks of ice just falling into the ocean, raising the sea levels.”  President Trump responded: “And you don’t know whether or not that would have happened with or without man. You don’t know.”

Fact check: Greenland’s ice sheet has added just 0.39 of a centimeter to global sea levels since 1993. N. Greenland was warmer during the early 20th century (1920-1940) and during the Medieval Warm Period.

President Trump: “They say that we had hurricanes that were far worse than what we just had with Michael.”

Fact check: Even the UN IPCC reports concede that extreme weather has not increased.  Category 4+ hurricane landfaFact check: Trump right on climate on 60 Minutes 1lls have decreased over 70% since 1970.  Hurricane Michael followed a predictable natural pattern.

Lesley Stahl: “What about the scientists who say it’s worse than ever?”  President Trump: “You’d have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda.”

Fact check: The media touts the UN IPCC as the world’s “top scientists” — But who are they?  Activists. Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry says this about the latest UN IPCC report – “The IPCC still has not made a strong case for this massive investment to prevent 1.5C warming.”

The global warming campaign is riddled with propaganda, profiteering and waste.

It great to see a President who has finally figured it out!
