Climate Change Daily Vid Nov 11 2017: Kathleen Hartnett White struggles

Kathleen Hartnett White struggles to answer basic questions posed by the Senate committee on environment and public works on Thursday. Hartnett White, Trump’s nominee for the environmental quality council chair, had difficulty answering questions from Senators Ben Cardin and Sheldon Whitehouse on green house emissions and climate science

Kathleen Hartnett White has said the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) ignores natural causes of climate change. She has also argued that Carbon Dioxide has been wrongfully regulated as a pollutant.

October 19, 2016 Speaking with Ars Technica, in her role as a Trump campaign advisor, Kathleen Hartnett White suggested the IPCC has ignored natural causes of climate change:
 “[The IPCC] never really takes on an explanation of how the other variables in climate affect climate. […] It never takes on the Sun. There are a number of very, very senior atmospheric physicists—one I think of in particular, Fritz Varenholt, who wrote a book called The Neglected Sun. As a scientist, he's just appalled that better knowledge about the role of the Sun would not be a part of the science.”
Hartnett White discussed Donald Trump's plans to revive the coal industry. [20] “[Trump]'s very much for clean air and clean water” Hartnett White said.
“But the better home for considering this discussion about carbon dioxide and climate is in the Department of Energy.”  According to Hartnett White, climate change concerns “are really a discussion about energy, not really a discussion about environmental protection.” She described CO2 regulations as “the killer for coal.” 
Speaking of the Clean Air Act's regulation of CO2, Hartnett White said that the Clean Air Act
“was never designed to control a pollutant that ubiquitous that has no adverse environmental impacts on people.” She said that “Carbon dioxide has no adverse impact in the air we breath at all. It's a harmless trace gas that is actually an essential nutrient for plants.”

Lord Nicholas Stern

Today’s young people can and should hold their parents’ generation to account for their present actions. They can elicit an emotional response that can motivate action. If thinking about the lives of unborn future generations seems too abstract to motivate you to act, try instead looking a young child or grandchild in the eye and asking yourself what sort of future you are leaving for them. There is something that, on reflection, many adults would surely find repugnant in the idea that they will leave their children a damaged planet that will radically affect their life possibilities.

Kiribati President Anote Tong

"…I remember I had been trying to convince him to visit Kiribati and he did in 2011. He came to Kiribati and I remember he went to visit one of these communities that was flooded every time there is very high tides and there was this young boy who stepped up to the Secretary General and said Mr. Secretary General, you are a very important man you know, is there something that you can do to ensure I will have a future, that I will have a home. And the Secretary General came back and he said Mr. President I have been listening to you at the General Assembly but I never truly understood what it was you trying to communicate but now I do and I feel and I understand I would do everything that I can”
