Explanation: Bias and Misrepresentation
On October 16, 2018, Vice President Mike Pence misrepresented scientific research on the causes of climate change. He told reporters:
“As the president has said, the climate is changing, but what the causes of that are, are yet to be seen.”
In fact, however, scientific research establishes that anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are the primary drivers of climate change.
