Mike Huckabee says despite constant hammering about climate change, Americans are not very worried.

"Polls consistently show that despite constant media fearmongering over climate change being a bigger danger than ISIS, a nuclear Iran and Alec Baldwin's temper put together, most Americans just aren't that concerned," the former Arkansas governor wrote Tuesday on his Facebook page.

"Maybe it's because if you've been alive long enough, you've seen so many apocalyptic predictions come and go (remember when tuna became an $80-a-can rare delicacy in the 1980s? Me, neither.) And yet the world is still here, there are still fish in the sea.

"And the $9 million oceanfront mansion [former Vice President] Al Gore bought with the money he made off of scary predictions of rising sea levels is still as dry as one of his speeches.

With that in mind, Huckabee, a former GOP presidential candidate who supports Donald Trump, says another "failed prediction" has just collapsed.

"Manmade global warming was supposed to have melted away the entire Arctic Ice Cap by 2016 … In fact, Arctic ice cover has grown to over 2.9 million square miles, a 31 percent increase since 2012," Huckabee writes.

"Neither I nor anyone I know 'denies' climate change. We just question the expertise of those who want to destroy our economy to avert their apocalyptic weather predictions for the next century when they can't even get the weekend forecast right."
