Former Entourage actor Adrian Grenier, who previously referred to capitalism as oppressive, is attacking Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump for his tweets on global warming.
“It’s extremely destructive,” Grenier told The New York Daily News of past statements made on Twitter by Trump, who has described climate change as “bulls—t,” among other things.
Trump has previously tweeted:
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

NBC News just called it the great freeze – coldest weather in years. Is our country still spending money on the GLOBAL WARMING HOAX?

Any and all weather events are used by the GLOBAL WARMING HOAXSTERS to justify higher taxes to save our planet! They don't believe it $$$$!

Grenier described Trump as “extremely short-sighted,” and stated, “Climate change is real.”
“We shouldn’t be arguing about whether or not it’s real,” he said. We should be arguing about how we’re going to make the world less polluted.”
The actor and environmental activist also told the Daily News, “I don’t even know why we’re paying attention. I mean, look, the naysayers out there are so far and few between.”
Grenier concluded: “The question is, how are we going to improve our lives – our quality of life – for people around the world?”
