Ex-French President Questions “Global Warming”

Man alone is not responsible for climate change and the world has far bigger problems than “global warming,” said former French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

“Climate has been changing for four billion years,” Sarkozy, who’s running for president again, told business leaders at the Institut de l’enterprise on Wednesday. “Sahara has become a desert, it isn’t because of industry.”

“You need to be as arrogant as men are to believe we changed the climate.”

The former president seems to have changed his mind; in 2007 he warned that “we cannot ignore the climate challenge,” but despite that statement, French media reported that he rarely discussed “global warming” while president.

This is the first time he was openly skeptical about “man-made climate change.”

Interestingly, Sarkozy is running again for president amid the extreme backlash against President François Hollande for calling on France to embrace Islam.

Sarkozy’s statement shows the influence Donald Trump already has over world politics; Trump, a skeptic himself, is making it safe for other political candidates to openly question “global warming” pushed by politicians and government-funded scientists.

“Sarkozy… can see the ocean of votes in speaking out against political correctness,” reported JoNova. “He has watched the rise of Marine Le Pen and of Donald Trump.”

“The game has changed.”
