South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham posed a rhetorical question at a town hall meeting in North Conway, New Hampshire.

“What would the world be like if we had to rely less on fossil fuels coming from people who hate our guts?”

The long shot presidential candidate also told potential New Hampshire voters that he believes “climate change is real.”

“The question is, do CO2 emissions that come from smokestacks and millions of cars and trucks throughout the planet burning gas and fossil fuels in general, do they create greenhouse gas effects that trap heat? I think they do.”

Earlier in the week, Graham detailed at the No Labels convention a suite of options for addressing the climate problem.
