Presidential hopeful Nicolas Sarkozy reckons that climate change is not caused by man and that the world has far bigger problems on its hands than global warming. Nicolas Sarkozy, who is fighting to regain the presidency that he lost to François Hollande in 2012, has finally come out of the closet as a climate skeptic. Speaking in front of business leaders Sarkozy, a candidate for Les Republicains party primary in November, told them that man alone was not to blame for climate change. “Climate has been changing for four billion years,” the former president said according to AFP. “Sahara has become a desert, it isn’t because of industry. You need to be as arrogant as men are to believe we changed the climate.” —The Local, 15 September 2016
Nicolas Sarkozy, the centre-right candidate for the Presidential elections in 2017, said that “humans were not the only ones responsible” for climate change. “Much is said about climate change; it is very interesting, but the climate has been changing for 4.5 billion years. Mankind is not solely responsible for this change” said the former French President according to comments reported by AFP’s Gerald Darmanin. “I’d rather we talk about a more important issues.” —Le Figaro, 14 September 2016
