Carly Fiorina participated in a rural town hall meeting in Des Moines, Iowa, where she held a discussion with participants on policies that impact rural America.

“There’s so many examples of where science is quoted, but science is twisted,” Fiorina told the crowd, citing global warming as an example where this occurs.

“Even all the scientists who agree that climate change is real and man-made, also agree that a single nation acting alone can’t make any difference at all. And they all agree that with current technology, to make an infinitesimal difference would take a global effort, coordinated over three decades, and costing trillions of dollars. What are the chances of that happening? Zero. And yet, that part of the science is never described.”

“In other words,” Fiorina added. “It’s so often true that science is quoted, but in fact what’s being pushed is ideology.”

Fiorina consistently calls for “innovation over regulation” to address climate change.
