On Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade claimed that President Obama “did not bring up climate change” in his convention speech last night:
In fact, Obama said that his energy plan “will continue to reduce the carbon pollution that is heating our planet because climate change is not a hoax. More droughts and floods and wildfires are not a joke. They are a threat to our children's future and in this election you can do something about it.”
Many who have been critical of Obama for not prioritizing climate legislation were glad to see him acknowledge the threats climate change poses in a major speech. But Fox continues to criticize an imaginary Obama and treat climate change as a punch line.
