Interior head: 'I Haven't Lost Any Sleep' over record carbon levels

Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, a former oil and gas lobbyist, was pressed to explain how climate could factor into future land management decisions.

Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., asked Bernhardt if he was concerned about rising global greenhouse gas emissions. Data obtained Friday by the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii showed those levels reached 415 parts per million, the highest carbon dioxide levels ever found in the atmosphere in recorded human history.

Asked how he’d rate his personal concern about those reports on a scale of 1 to 10, he stated plainly: “I haven’t lost any sleep over it.”

A November report from 13 federal agencies found severe climate change as predicted by scientists would have devastating impacts on the U.S. economy. Another report earlier last year from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned that unless significant action happens soon, global average temperatures could rise to levels that could trigger a multitude of environmental and humanitarian crises.
