Larry Bell: Climate Change 'Is One of Obama's Legacy Policies'

By    |   Friday, 10 Jul 2015 08:01 PM

Climate change is one of President Barack Obama's "legacy policies," but the American public isn't at all convinced, according to scientist and professor Larry Bell.

In an interview with "The Hard Line" host Ed Berliner on Newsmax TV Friday, University of Houston's Bell also said GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has a point with his skepticism of climate change.

"Trump is partly right in the sense that there's just an enormous amount of profiteering on the fear, and the notion that there's this looming crisis is absolutely nonsensical," Bell said.

He also noted Trump's concern with China's role in the debate, saying the Chinese have benefitted from the "propaganda… because they didn't have to comply with the Kyoto Protocol" on reducing greenhouse gases emissions.

"There's an awful lot of nonsense out there," he added.

Bell predicted the Obama administration will try to make climate change an issue even in the 2016 White House race.

"This is one of Obama's legacy policies so they're going to push the heck out of it," Bell said.

"Right now the public's pretty indifferent. If you look at the list of priorities the public has, this is a dead last."

Bell said there's no question "that climate changes… it just hasn't changed recently."

"According to satellite records, there's been no statistical warming now in 18 years which means that students in high school today have never known global warming," he noted.

"So far a lot of people are predicting we're going to have continued cooling based upon the solar activity which has been very low during this cycle," he added. "It looks like we're going to another cycle which isn't about the heat of the sun, it has to do with the effects of the sun on cloud cover and some other issues."
