GOP Arizona Governor ‘Skeptical’ That Climate Change Is Caused By Humans

April 30, 2015 4:54 p.m.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) said Thursday during a press conference that he believed in climate change but wasn’t convinced humans were responsible for causing it, the Arizona Capitol Times newspaper reported.

Ducey’s comments were made in response to Arizona’s long-term drought and the possibility that climate change is responsible for it, according to the paper.

“We just went through a great briefing of all the experts,” Ducey reportedly said. “They informed me that the climate is changing. … It’s going to get warmer here.”

“What I am skeptical about is what human activity has to do with it,” he said, according to the Capitol Times.
