WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s nominee to be United Nations ambassador publicly broke with the White House over climate change on Wednesday, calling it a “real risk” and promising to take the issue seriously if confirmed to the high-profile diplomatic position.
The statement by Kelly Knight Craft – made during a contentious Senate confirmation hearing – marked a sharp reversal from her previous comments, in which she said she believed “both sides” of the science on climate change.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Climate change needs to be addressed as it poses real risk to our planet,” Craft, the U.S. ambassador to Canada, said in opening remarks before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
