Fox host tells kids to doubt climate science because there were ‘no humans with cars’ after ice age

Last week, conservative media accused Portland Public Schools of enacting a book ban over its plan to “abandon the use of any adopted text material that is found to express doubt about the severity of the climate crisis or its root in human activities.”


“There are still scientists, believe it or not, out there who say we still have to look at the data,” Montgomery continued. “And it’s impossible to predict how the climate is going to change over hundreds or thousands or years.”


“So, getting out of the ice age — how did the Earth warm up after the ice age?” Watters opined. “There were no humans there with cars and factories. I mean, how did things warm up?”


“I should be teaching these courses,” he added. “These aren’t that hard. It gets hot, it gets cold. This spring has been freezing. It’s not getting warmer. It seems like it’s getting colder. Am I wrong?”


Fox News producer and occasional host Jesse Watters suggested on Monday that man-made climate change was likely a hoax because there were no “humans with cars” to generate greenhouse gasses at the end of the last ice age.
