Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a candidate for the 2016 GOP nomination, spoke on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” on NBC about climate change and questioned its validity after the view on it has changed from global freezing in the early 1970s.
“I know that when I was in college I was being taught that if we didn’t act very quickly, that we were going to be entering a global freezing. Go back and look at the covers of Time and Newsweek from the early ’70s. And were told that if we didn’t do something by 1980, we’d be popsicles. Now we’re told that we’re all burning up. Science is not as settled on that as it is on some things.”
Huckabee, also unsettled on climate change, stated in his 2007 campaign, “climate change is here, it’s real.”
