Climate Change Opinions of USA Candidates

The current leaders of the race to be the next President of the USA differ when it comes to the topic of Climate Change and Global Warming.

Democratic opinion on climate change

Bernie Sanders & Hilary Clinton have vastly different opinions on Climate Change compared to the other leading candidates.

Bernie Sanders: June 28 2015, Sen. Sanders tweeted, “The scientific
community has been extremely clear. We must take bold action to address climate change.”

Hillary Clinton: January 20, 2016, Sec. Clinton tweeted, “Climate change is real. It’s hurting our planet and our people. We can’t afford a president who ignores the science.”

Republican Climate Change

Donald Trump & Ted Cruz deny climate change & global warming.

Ted Cruz: June 2015 Yahoo interview with Katie Couric, “Climate change is a “pseudoscientific theory” satellite data shows there has been no significant recorded warming. None. When the satellites are measuring the temperature — it’s not happening.” Senator Cruz also said “climate change is being driven by politicians who want more control over our lives.”

Donald Trump: December 30, 2015 at a campaign rally in Hilton Head, South Carolina “So Obama is talking about all of this with the global warming and … a lot of it is a hoax. It’s a hoax. I mean, it’s a money making industry, okay? It’s a hoax.”

Clearly the list of international scientific bodies that affirm human-caused global climate change is significant. Even those scientific bodies that are engaged in the fossil fuel industry do not dispute human-caused global climate change, but have instead worded their official position statements on the subject to be Non-committal.
