Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “downplayed climate change as a longstanding trend, suggesting that that modern societies could adapt to a changing environment, possibly with people moving to different places,” CNN reports.
Said Pompeo: “The climate’s been changing a long time. There’s always changes that take place.”
He added: “Societies reorganize, we move to different places, we develop technology and innovation. I am convinced, I am convinced that we will do the things necessary as the climate changes.”
