VIA| GOP front-runner Donald Trump, a thoroughbred New Yorker, does not see eye-to-eye with his city’s numerous “global warming will kill us” fear-mongers.
In defending this controversial stance, Trump pointed to the inconsistency of climate change fanatics, who in the 1920s and 1970s warned about global cooling but who now lament incessantly over so-called global warming.
“They call it all sorts of different things,” Trump noted. “Perhaps there’s a minor effect, but I’m not a big believer in man-made climate change.”

Trump then made a startling pivot and brought up the form of “climate change” that concerns him most.
“The biggest risk to the world, to me — I know President Obama thought it was climate change — to me the biggest risk is nuclear weapons,” he said. “That’s — that is climate change.”
This was a slick reference to the Cold War, which spawned many fears over a potential “nuclear winter,” in which the devastating effects of a nuclear war would effectively decimate the environment and could make the planet virtually uninhabitable.
“The biggest risk for this world and this country is nuclear weapons, the power of nuclear weapons,” Trump continued, noting that we don’t know who is trying to get them, who already has them or who intends to use them.

We definitely know who will soon have them, however, courtesy President Barack Obama, who signed a poorly conceived deal with the rogue nation of Iran last year that practically guaranteed it will have nuclear weapons within 10 or so years. For a guy who whines nonstop about global warming, it sounds like Obama and all his liberal buddies in New York City could use a lesson from Trump on what real climate change looks like.
