GOP Pres. candidate Vivek Ramaswamy: ‘The Climate change agenda is a HOAX’

Business entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy said on the debate stage of the first GOP primary debate Wednesday night that the climate change agenda is a hoax. 

“I’m the only person on the stage who is not bought and paid for,” Ramaswamy said. “So I can say this. The climate change agenda is a hoax.”

This resulted in a round of boos from the audience. 

“The reality is the anti-carbon agenda is the wet blanket on our economy. And so the reality is more people are dying of bad climate change policies than they are of actual climate change,” he continued. 

Other candidates such as former Vice President Mike Pence and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley then interjected, resulting in multiple people speaking over each other. 

Haley said that climate change is real, but other countries such as China need to be held accountable for their contributions for it.
