Trump Just Promoted Quote Calling Climate Crisis 'Fake'

President Trump on Tuesday again dismissed the climate crisis.

President Trump on Tuesday promoted a quote that calls the climate crisis "fake."  "Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace: 'The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it's Fake Science.

There is no climate crisis, there's weather and climate all around the world, and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life.'

@foxandfriends Wow!" Trump wrote in a tweet. Greenpeace USA was quick to correct the record, writing: "Patrick Moore was not a co-founder of Greenpeace.

He does not represent Greenpeace.

He is a paid lobbyist, not an independent source.

His statements about @AOC & the #GreenNewDeal have nothing to do with our positions." This is not the first time Trump has questioned the science relating to climate change. "In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded," Trump wrote on January 28.

"In coming days, expected to get even colder.

People can't last outside even for minutes.

What the hell is going on with Global Waming [sic]?

Please come back fast, we need you!" "Be careful and try staying in your house," he wrote in another tweet on January 20.

"Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold.

Amazing how big this system is.

Wouldn't be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!" Over the years, Trump has posted many messages on the matter.

Just months prior, he had tweeted: "Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS - Whatever happened to Global Warming?" The president has long expressed skepticism about climate change, dismissing it in the past as a "hoax." "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive," he tweeted in 2012.
