Rubio Stays Ambiguous on Climate Change Solutions

Posted April 21, 2015 at 5:00am

Stephen Stromberg argues that presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has been “strategically evasive” about addressing climate change.  

“Rubio’s suggestion that ‘some’ people — scientists? policymakers?underpants gnomes? — are ‘trying to make’ us worry more than we should allows him to play to climate-science-is-a-hoax conspiracy theorists without explicitly endorsing their wackiness. But it also emphasizes the fact that Rubio hasn’t explained what the proper degree of alarm is — and, from there, what to do about it.”
