Get your facts straight, Walker. Few "climatologists" doubt humanity's role in changing the climate; those who do doubt it raise questions about their professional competency.

This is a potentially disastrous development.

"[Senior Trump campaign advisor Bob] Walker, however, claimed that doubt over the role of human activity in climate change 'is a view shared by half the climatologists in the world. We need good science to tell us what the reality is and science could do that if politicians didn’t interfere with it.' ”
