    Of course “Climate change is a fact.”

    It has been for the past 4.5 billion years.

    Saying “Climate change is a fact” is meaningless in the context of to what degree climate change is natural vs. anthropogenic and whether policy changes can make any noticeable difference.

      Apparently not everyone agrees with you including, in this case, Sen. Tim Scott.
