Jeb Bush: Capitalism Can Solve Global Warming, Not Gov’t.

WASHINGTON — Likely Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Wednesday that while he acknowledges “the climate is changing,” he’s not clear on the extent to which human activity may be causing those changes. “I don’t think the science is clear of what percentage is man-made and what percentage is natural. In the interview, Bush criticized the “hard-core left” for politicizing the global warming debate to the point where anyone who disagrees with activists is labeled things like anti-science. “The problem is climate change has been co-opted by the hard-core left and if you don’t march to their beat perfectly then you’re a denier,” Bush said. As NASA explains, scientists are able to observe the increased concentrations of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases, and they’re able to distinguish current warming trends from historic, natural temperature shifts. Ninety-seven percent of peer-reviewed studies agree with this conclusion that human activity is causing global warming, as do the country’s leading scientific bodies — including the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Chemical Society, U.S. Bush also criticized President Barack Obama’s commencement speech to the United States Coast Guard Academy on Wednesday, in which the president argued that climate change is a national security threat.
