The Politico reported:
President Barack Obama lit into GOP climate change skeptics in a speech Wednesday night, delighting a crowd of 800 to 900 environmentalists in Washington’s Ronald Reagan Building.
He said Republicans in Congress are out of touch with the American public, who “don’t just say, ‘No, I don’t believe anything scientists say.’ Except — where? — in Congress. Folks will tell you climate change is a hoax or a fad or a plot — a liberal plot.”
Obama also took aim at Republicans for pleading ignorance on climate by saying they aren’t scientists…
…And he said young people largely support acting on climate change — citing his own daughters as an example.
“You talk to Malia, you talk to Sasha, you talk to your kids or your grandkids — this is something they get,” he said. “They don’t need a lot of persuading.”
