By Scott Winship February 13, 2018 07:48:01 As a former climate science denier, Scott Feldstein is now a leading expert on the heart disease pandemic.
But Feldstein was quick to point out that this is not his first time in the spotlight for denying climate science.
In the past, Feldstein has expressed skepticism about global warming and the science behind it.
In his new book, “Why We Won’t End Climate Change,” Feldstein argues that there is still a great deal of uncertainty surrounding climate change, which is one of the main reasons why we have not yet seen a meaningful slowdown in global warming.
Feldstein also argues that Trump administration policies are causing heart disease in the United States.
“This administration has made a mockery of the science,” Feldsteins said.
“They’ve made it their mission to deny the science that shows us the risk of climate change.
And they’re doing it with such a full-court press on it.
They’re going to be doing it for decades.”
Feldstein noted that Trump is not the first president to try to stymie scientific research.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump claimed the United Nations was funded by Russian oligarchs.
In response to this allegation, Feldsteines administration announced it would be cutting funding for the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
The Trump administration also cut funding for several international organizations including the United Kingdom’s World Meteorological Organization, the International Energy Agency, the United Arab Emirates’ National Institute for Applied Science, and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
In this way, Feldsties administration was effectively shutting down international organizations that are doing the hard work of communicating the science.
Feldstein says that these cuts will have a huge impact on climate change research and development in the U.S. He also notes that the Trump Administration has made it a top priority to slash the number of federal scientists.
“I think we have a very, very strong position in the country that climate change is real and we have to do something about it,” Feldsten said.
Feldstins claim that climate denial has affected how people view climate science and the research that goes into the scientific literature.
“It’s really, really hard for people to understand what the research is,” Feldstin said.
For instance, he said, when people see studies that are published in peer-reviewed journals, they often assume that they’re based on credible research.
“There are so many, and so many of these studies that don’t make the claim that there’s a consensus, they’re just like a bunch of crazy people.”
Feldsteis point of view is echoed by the American Heart Association, which said in a statement, “The American Heart Foundation is a strong supporter of the scientific community and the scientific process, and believes that the public should be able to make informed decisions about whether to invest in research and health care, and should not be subjected to misinformation.”
Feldsten is the executive director of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE), a group that has been working on developing and implementing policies that would help combat the rising costs of fossil fuels.
Feldsten says the American Coal Association has also expressed concerns about the Trump Trump administration and climate denial.
The American Coal Coalition, in a letter sent to the White House in April, said, “While the administration has expressed concern over climate denial and has pledged to protect our industry, there are many unanswered questions regarding the Trump agenda and his administration’s plans to roll back protections for clean energy, including carbon capture and storage, and renewable energy.”
Feldstie said that ACCCE and other organizations that have worked on policies to reduce the effects of climate denial are working hard to address these concerns.
Felds views on the Trump campaign are similar to those of the Heart Association.
He says that when he started his research into climate change in 2009, he was not convinced.
“At that time, I thought climate change was a bunch o’ baloney and that I’d never see any meaningful slowdown, and it was just going to get worse and worse,” Feldston said.
When he learned that the White the Trump had won, he decided to run for Congress.
Feldston’s campaign website states that Feldstein plans to work to make sure that the American people are informed about the science and that climate science is properly understood.
Feldsts views on climate science differ from those of other members of Congress, who have expressed skepticism that global warming is happening.
Feldtstein believes that there has been a slow-down in the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and that it is likely that global temperatures have been increasing.
He believes that this was caused by natural variability in the weather, which can be influenced by changes in the amount of carbon released by burning fossil fuels and other sources of carbon emissions. “You know
