Republicans ‘have denied climate change’

SMIKLEY: "They have to contend with things they have put forth. If they are talking about reforming for example flood insurance programs, and we see that this is going to happen more and more and more sadly because of climate change, but they’ve denied climate change. So how do they reconcile the need to focus on policies and sharpen them with the philosophical positions that have been some things that the Republicans have taken up as of late."
