- After Monday’s debate Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s Vice President, came forward to talk about climate change.
- He went against everything Trump said and said that climate control is man-made and a serious concern.
- Mike Pence believes that we must, “…follow the science,” to move forward.
Climate change has always been a topic that is frequently talked about. It’s also one of those topics that people feel very passion about. You’re either going to find someone who supports it or is against it, there isn’t many in between.
This is true with Mike Pence, Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump’s Vice President pick. For those of us that watched the debate on Monday, we know what Trump’s stance is. So, you would assume that Pence would be toting the same flag and spreading their concepts on how to progress forward, right? That’s not what happened.
Pence came out Tuesday and said, “there’s no question,” that human activity affects the climate.
Back in 2012 Trump posted his views on climate control all over Twitter. One of his posts said, “concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” Although, he did later come out and say that he was kidding. Yet, he did it again in 2014, also on Twitter, with a comment about how climate control is a hoax. His post said, “Snowing in Texas and Louisiana, record setting freezing temperatures throughout the country and beyond. Global warming is an expensive hoax!”
Pence, alone on CNN said, “…let’s follow the science…What Donald Trump said was a hoax is that bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., can control the climate of the Earth. There’s no question that the activities that take place in this country and in countries around the world have some impact on the environment and some impact on climate.”
It may seem as though there is some rocky ground between the Presidential Candidate and his Vice President Elect.
