Graham: If Elected, I’ll ‘Address Climate Change’ in a ‘Business Friendly Way’

‘I do believe the climate change is real’

GRAHAM: “Here’s a question you need to ask everybody running as a Republican: what is the environmental policy of the Republican policy? When I ask that question, I get a blank stare. We don’t have an environmental policy. We have an energy policy. If I’m president of the United States, we’re going to address climate change, CO2 emissions in a business-friendly way. We’re going to find oil and gas that we own because we’re going to use fossil fuels for a long time to come, but it’s okay to set lower carbon targets. I do believe that climate change is real. I want a business solution to that problem –“

BASH: “Man-made climate change?”

GRAHAM: “Yes, I do. Absolutely. When 90 percent of the doctors tell you you’ve got a problem, do you listen to the one? At the end of the day, I do believe that the CO2 emission problem all over the world is hurting our environment. But the solution is a pro-business solution to a lower-carbon economy.”
