Rand Paul Slams Hillary Clinton On Climate Change

By    |   Friday, 05 Sep 2014 01:06 PM

Sen. Ran Paul slammed potential 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton on Fox News for comments she made stating that climate change was the greatest threat to the United States.

The former secretary of State addressed an annual meeting of the National Clean Energy Summit on Thursday, where she called climate change "the most consequential urgent sweeping collection of challenges we face" as a nation and in the world, the Associated Press reported.

"No matter what the deniers try to assert, sea levels are rising. Ice caps are melting. Storms, droughts, and wildfires are wreaking havoc," Clinton said.

Paul, a Kentucky Republican who is also considering a run for the White House in 2016, questioned Clinton's understanding of the threat radical terrorists, such as the Islamist State (ISIS), posed to the United States.

"I don't think we want a commander-in-chief who's battling climate change, instead of terrorism. She's also been out there saying ISIS is not a threat to America. Those, I think, were her exact words.

"I would say that for her to be out there saying the biggest threat to our safety and to our well being is climate change, I think is goes to the heart of the matter of whether or not she has the wisdom to lead the country, which I think it's obvious that she doesn't," Paul told "America's Newsroom" on Friday.
