Will on climate change report: 'Scientists are not saints in white laboratory smocks'

 

George Will told viewers Tuesday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that "scientists are not saints in white laboratory smocks" after the White House released a National Climate Assessment report concluding that the effects of global warming are harming the nation.

"There is a sociology of science. Scientists are not saints in white laboratory smocks. They've got interests like everybody else," the syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor said.

"If you want money from the biggest source of direct research in this country, the federal government, don't question its orthodoxy."

Will added that there is no evidence for the increase in extreme weather and cited a former vice president who was also big on climate change: "Al Gore, who in 2008, said by 2013, for those of you keeping score at home, that’s last year, the ice cap in The North Pole would be gone. It’s not."
