EPA chief: Carbon dioxide isn’t a ‘primary contributor’ to global warming

The head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said Thursday that he does not believe carbon dioxide is a “primary contributor” to climate change.

“I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there’s tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact. So no, I would not agree that it’s a primary contributor to the global warming that we see,” Scott Pruitt said on CNBC Thursday morning from an oil industry conference in Houston, where he plans to speak.

“But we don’t know that yet … we need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis,” Pruitt continued.
