President Obama called out Republican lawmakers who claim they aren’t scientists when asked if they believe climate change is man-made.
“I’ve heard some folks try to dodge the evidence by saying they’re not scientists that we don’t have enough information to act,” Obama said. “Well, I’m not a scientist, either. But you know what — I know a lot of really good scientists at NASA, and NOAA, and at our major universities. And the best scientists in the world are all telling us that our activities are changing the climate.”
Obama said he was “determined” to lead international action on climate change.
“I will not let this Congress endanger the health of our children by turning back the clock on our efforts,” he said.
