CNN Anchor Declares: ‘Climate Change Is Real,’ Skeptics ‘Ridiculous’

Earlier this week, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and former CNN science reporter Miles O’Brien slammed CNN for giving equal time to science deniers. Well, it appears that at least one person at CNN was listening, because this morning CNN anchor Carol Costello stated declaratively that “climate change is real” and slamming the partisan motives of climate change deniers.

Costello used Pat Sajak‘s Twitter trolling as a jumping-off point, calling it “ridiculous” and “easy to laugh off,” except for how powerful people like Marco Rubio keep raising questions about climate science.

Costello brought on two reverends to discuss the subject and remarked, “Climate change deniers aren’t listening to science or they’re not reading the Bible. They’re denying global warming for purely political reasons, right?”
