Obama: ‘We Might Cure Cancer,’ But if Temps Go up 2 Degrees It Won’t Matter
Thursday in Baton Rouge, LA. at a town hall, President Barack Obama said if climate change is not addressed, a cure for cancer would be meaningless.
Obama said, “But don’t think that this is not a problem for all of us. This is the main message I have. You know, we talked — that young lady was asking me about curing cancer. Well, we might cure cancer, but if temperatures have gone up two, three degrees around the planet, four degrees and oceans are rising, we got — we’re going to have more problems than medical science can cure. We have got to make that investment now and we can do it. Good question.”
