Sect. Of Defense agrees with climate change.

Defense Secretary James Mattis Breaks With Other Cabinet Members On Climate Change | The Huffington Post

One of trumps's cabinet has at least half a brain.

This portion of the statements my Mattis are pretty easy to find. Mattis never contradicted Trump or Pruitt:

Quote:
Shaheen: “I understand that while you were commander of U.S. Joint Forces Command you signed off on a document called the Joint Operating Environment, which listed climate change as one of the security threats the military will face in the next quarter-century. Do you believe climate change is a security threat?”

Mattis: “Climate change can be a driver of instability, and the Department of Defense must pay attention to potential adverse impacts generated by this phenomenon.”

Shaheen: “General Mattis, how should the military prepare to address this threat?”

Mattis: “As I noted above, climate change is a challenge that requires a broader, whole-of government response. If confirmed, I will ensure that the Department of Defense plays its appropriate role within such a response by addressing national security aspects.”

Mattis: “I agree that the effects of a changing climate — such as increased maritime access to the Arctic, rising sea levels, desertification, among others — impact our security situation. I will ensure that the department continues to be prepared to conduct operations today and in the future, and that we are prepared to address the effects of a changing climate on our threat assessments, resources, and readiness.”

Sooner or later every human being on the face of this planet is confronted with tough questions. One of the toughest and most common is the infamous loaded question, “When did you stop beating your wife?” which implies that you have indeed been beating your wife. How do you answer without agreeing with the implication? How do you not answer without appearing evasive?

Courtroom dramas often include a scene where an antagonistic prosecutor points his finger at a defendant and asks accusatorially, “Why did you kill your partner?” implying that the person — who has pleaded not guilty — did kill the partner. Or “What did you do with the gun?” implying that the person did possess the murder weapon.

This is known as a false assumption and there is only one way to handle such a question: Just apply the noted anti-drug slogan, and say, “No.” The defendant should say, “I did not kill my partner.” The business person should deny the false assumption. And if anyone ever asks you when you stopped beating your wife, simply rebut the fallacy by saying, “I never started.”
