AP FACT CHECK: EPA chief sees good in warming, experts donít
ap ^ | 2/7/2018 | MICHAEL BIESECKER and SETH BORENSTEIN

WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the Environmental Protection Agency is again understating the threat posed by climate change, this time by suggesting that global warming may be a good thing for humanity.

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has championed the continued burning of fossil fuels while expressing doubt about the consensus of climate scientists that man-made carbon emissions are overwhelmingly the cause of record temperature increases observed around the world.

In an interview with KSNV-TV in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Pruitt made several statements that are undercut by the work of climate scientists, including those at his own agency.

The Associated Press shared a transcript of Pruitt’s remarks with top U.S. scientists, and a dozen of them faulted his understanding of science.

Asked for references to any climate data or scientific studies Pruitt was relying on, EPA spokesman Jahan Wilcox instead provided a link to a recent Fox News report questioning the accuracy of a statement made by former Vice President Al Gore in 2006.

Fake news presents itself as objective fact-checking.

Yeah, sure.

Some day the liberals might discover that there is no such thing as a ‘scientific consensus’.

Global warming: University professors want huge government grants and Democrats want total control over our lives.

You can’t grow corn, wheat and soybeans in the snow. That’s why they are experts

So the practice “snowbirds” have been engaging in of wintering in warmer environs will only doom them? There is after all much more than a two or three degree difference in the average temperatures between New York and Florida.

Still pushing this globalist corporate phony narrative. Anthropogenic global warming is inconsequential. The world was much warmer in the past. The Milankovitch cycle is the cause for climate cycles.

Hey, AP, are you on board for some global cooling? THINK before you answer.

AP and “fact check” should never be used simultaneously.

There are plenty of “experts” who wholeheartedly endorse what Pruitt is saying about CO2. For example:

Any “news” story with Seth Borenstein’s by-line is an automatic “don’t read” for me.
