Trump ally Lindsey Graham says president should 'admit climate change is real'
In response to a question about the president's environmental record, Graham said Trump should agree with the overwhelming scientific consensus that the planet is warming and come up with an aggressive response.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) questions Kelly Craft, President Trump's nominee to be Representative to the United Nations, during her nomination hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on June 19, 2019 in Washington, DC.

"I would encourage the president to look at the science, admit that climate change is real and come up with solutions that do not destroy the economy like the Green New Deal," the senator said, referring to the plan progressive Democrats have promoted to halt climate change.

"We will win the solution debate. But the only way you're going to win that debate is to admit you've got a problem."

Trump often mocks the science behind climate change and once referred to it as a "hoax" perpetrated by the Chinese to gain competitive advantage. He has instructed his administration to expand the development of carbon-emitting fossil fuels that contribute to a hotter planet. And he has rolled back previous efforts to reduce carbon emissions, including the Clean Power Plan that was a signature of President Barack Obama's efforts to confront the growing crisis.

Miss Lyndsey is such a "twit". He has to constantly attack Dems even on something as MONUMENTALLY important as "Climate Change".

What kind of an IDIOT does not believe in climate change? It is not about beliefs, it is Science.

 Unfortunately they don’t know that most of those computer models have inherent factual errors built into them or even if they do they simply won’t admit it.

You want to know about the science? 

1) It is unreliable.  The majority of the science behind the theory is 90% or less in terms of confidence level, which introduces huge amounts of error into any sort of hypothesis.

2) It ignores geologic history.  The geological record shows the Earth having been much warmer during the Jurassic period than it is currently and until an asteroid hit the Earth, life teemed on the planet.

3) It only focuses on blaming humans for a natural process.  The climate acts more like a pendulum than anything.  We are currently approaching the middle of an interglacial, and like a pendulum acceleration is greatest at the midpoint.  So, warming is going to be greatest when we actually reach the midpoint of the current interglacial and will start cooling at that point.

4) It relies on computer models which cannot predict the path of a single storm with any reliability, let alone what will happen within the next decade or century.

That is their vaunted science.  Take it from someone whom had Chemistry and computer programming training.  The moment anyone says anything is settled science, it means they are not a true scientist nor do they care about actual facts or data.  Science is always about questioning EVERYTHING about what is being proclaimed.  Heck, every day we are finding new things about the Universe we live in that actually shakes previously "settled science" like Einstein's Theory of Relativity.  Yet, these climate change zealots ignore those facts about science and rules of science to claim that 97% of "scientists" agree, when in fact in real science it should be 97% of scientists disagree!

Okay, prove the science.  I pointed out why the science, other than it being the YOUNGEST of the sciences, is not really up to par.  What are your credentials on science, the scientific method, and computer modelling?

Well the first step is acknowledging there is a problem.

Come on Lindsey. Trump is not going to tell the whole truth and neither are you...

Lindsey is a despicable self-loathing closet case who should resign immediately!

He lies about everything even who he really is so this should come as no surprise.

This comment proves that a number of people on the Left aren't as tolerant and inclusive of sexual orientations as they portray themselves to be. If they were, they would respect others' privacy.

Senator Lindsey Graham is a veteran who served with distinction (Colonel, Bronze Star) and has served our country in legislature. That's all that should concern us ... not what he does or doesn't do in private.

Jasper2529, you are absolutely correct. We who tend to favor the Left are so diverse that some of us may be "politically incorrect".

I know that I count myself among that group.

Well if that's the case-- what about John McCain (Peace Be Upon Him):

Why don't all victims of sexual assault come forward?

Why do you care?  I thought lefties wanted people to mind their own business about personal sexuality.

I certainly hope not. I am looking forward to the day that closet queen gets locked in a closet for good.

What an obnoxious kiss up. 

How does one go from being John McCain's sidearm to Trump's lackey?

Maybe he's not a liar-- rather, it could merely be "a negotiating tactic"?

There is actually some smart political advice in what Graham is saying.

come up with solutions that do not destroy the economy like the Green New Deal

Some package of proposals that acknowledges the changes and moves toward policies that steward the planet rather than just exploit it could be very profitable politically. When acknowledging climate change means you want to take away everyone's cars and airplanes, you're not going to see any movement on the issue. But that's mainly what the Left offers these days.

Something a little more modest could swing a lot of moderate voters to choose Republican next Fall. That could bring back the House as well as get Trump reelected.

I used to think Lindsey Graham was one of the senators that would work across party lines for the greater good but not anymore.  Since his master passed away he's turned into a lapdog to trump.

These days he just gives me whiplash.
