O'Rourke on climate change


Speaking to an Iowa audience about the threat of climate change last week, Democratic presidential contender Beto O’Rourke said, “we have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis.”

Associated Press fact checkers described his remarks as “faux facts” in an analysis published over the weekend, saying he “misrepresented the science on global warming” from last year’s report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). But O’Rourke is right, and the AP is wrong.
