CNN’s Tapper: ‘The Republican Party ... Acts as if Climate Change Is Not Real’
‘I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the fact that many experts say that the storm is more intense, because of climate change

TAPPER: Hurricane Irma as it hits Florida I would be remiss if I didn't mention the fact that many experts say that the storm is more intense, because of climate change.

Back in 2012 when Hurricane Sandy and then super storm Sandy, your daughter, Meghan McCain, tweeted, "So are we still going to go with climate change not being real, fellow Republicans?"

The Republican Party, as you know, generally speaking, acts as if climate change is not real. There are exceptions, you, your daughter, Meghan, the Republican mayor of Miami. But generally speaking, the president, the governor of Florida, et cetera, act as if it's not real even though the overwhelming scientific consensus is that it's real and it's man made.

Why?
