Fresh off a hot debate performance and amidst rising poll numbers, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain appeared on Fox News earlier this week, where he shared his thoughts on the climate crisis.
Referring to “most” conservatives, Cain said this:
They do not believe global warming is a crisis or a threat. Yes, it might be a little bit out there, but don't they see it as a crisis or a threat.
A new poll conducted by the Republican firm Public Opinion Strategies and released by the League of Conservation Voters just a few weeks ago suggests that Herman Cain may be out of touch with most conservatives on climate change. The poll found 55 percent of Republicans and 49 percent of Fox News viewers in support of EPA action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from sources like power plants, cars and factories.
