Quigley: ‘I Wouldn’t Be Surprised’ if Trump Tries ‘To Suppress’ Climate Change Report

‘As you suggested, during the campaign the president called climate change a Chinese hoax’

EXCERPT:

QUIGLEY: "I wouldn’t be surprised if they attempted to suppress it, unfortunately. Look, it’s a familiar pattern. As you suggested, during the campaign the President called climate change a Chinese hoax. This in spite of the fact that beyond this individual study, there are over 12,000 peer-reviewed scientific studies that say climate change is real and that man contributes to it. The Trump Administration cannot be allowed to suppress pure science. I challenge Secretary Pruitt to a public debate on climate change anytime, anywhere he wants to do this. So, I share these scientists' concern, and it’s our role to make sure the public knows what we’re really dealing with here."
