EPA Chief invokes God: ‘What in God’s name can anyone say to climate deniers that would make them figure it out?’


ADMINISTRATOR GINA MCCARTHY: “So, people have to start living a life that’s commensurate with reductions in greenhouse gases to the extent they can, but also as you said demand government to be responsive to this. But, I would waste no time with climate deniers. If they haven’t figured it out by now, what in God’s name can anyone say to them that would make them figure it out. The science is overwhelming. I don’t check out flat earth society, and I’m not talking to climate deniers. That’s it.”

ANDREW FREEDMAN: “I hear you.”

ADMINISTRATOR MCCARTHY: “Sorry. I know that I’m supposed to be for everybody but my patience has worn thin over eight years and twenty years before that talking about this issue.”

ANDREW FREEDMAN: “No, I hear you. I hear you.”
