President Donald Trump's new ambassador to Canada is getting destroyed for a 2017 interview she gave about climate science.
An interview with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), U.S. Ambassador Kelly Craft explained that she believes in "both sides of the science" surrounding climate change.
"I think that both sides have their own results, from their studies, and I appreciate and I respect both sides of the science," Craft said.
She noted that President Donald Trump's approach to climate change might be different than Canada's but that both want to "better our environment and to maintain the environment."
Trump has said that he doesn't believe in climate change, to believing it was caused by China and most recently that he might believe in it, but disagrees humans are responsible for an increase in carbon emissions. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau believes in climate science and that humans should do their part to cut their carbon footprint.
Craft's husband, Joe Craft, owns Alliance Resource Partners, a billion-dollar coal company that donated more than $2 million to Trump's presidential campaign. The company is the third-largest coal producer in the eastern United States.
