"Scaramucci Once Called Climate Change Denial ‘Disheartening.’"

"Before he was an adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump, Anthony Scaramucci, the president’s new White House communications director, lamented that some people did not accept the consensus among climate scientists that human activity was warming Earth.

It was 'disheartening' that so many people dismissed climate change as a 'hoax,' Scaramucci tweeted. ...

Among those 'many people' of course was then-presidential candidate Trump, who famously tweeted that the concept of global warming was a hoax fabricated by China."
