The new U.S. ambassador to Canada says that when it comes to climate change she believes in "both sides of the science."

Kelly Craft, who took up her position Monday, told the CBC's Rosemary Barton she appreciated all of the scientific evidence on climate change.

"I think that both sides have their own results, from their studies, and I appreciate and I respect both sides of the science," Craft told Barton.

She also said that while U.S. President Donald Trump's approach to climate change is different from the government of Canada's, both the U.S. and Canada have the same goal: to "better our environment and to maintain the environment."


I could say so many things, none of which would be kind. Ms. Craft, go back to your Republican fundraising job.

We have to respect and believe both sides - to be fair and balanced

Must be real science versus alternative redumbliCON science. Only the best and brightest blondes for the drumpf administration.

8. Does she have a doctorate in Physics?

Whether she does or not, she needs to explain to us morons how the Arctic ice is melting while at the same time, it isn't.

12. "Craft's husband, billionaire coal-mining magnate Joe Craft ..."

Ah. That explains why she was appointed, and why she brainlessly screws things up. She's even incompetent at the evil PR.

Her Wikipedia page is lacking in any achievements beyond her BA degree. It seems her daughter has already achieved more than her:

Knight Craft studied at the University of Kentucky and earned a Bachelor of Arts. She married David Moross, CEO of a private equity firm, and within one year became mother to Mia Moross, who is now a businesswoman who sells antique jewelry. Knight Craft later had another daughter, Jane Brady Knight, with her second husband, Judd Knight, an orthodontist.

Joseph Craft, her current husband, owns a billion-dollar coal company, Alliance Resource Partners. Joseph has expressed skepticism on climate change to a local newspaper, though no friends or family members commented on Kelly’s position. In an interview with CBC this week, Knight Craft said she respects “both sides of the science” on climate change.

Her daughter is running a business. The ambassador doesn't appear to have worked in any notable job since graduating - nothing anyone feels worth mentioning, anyway.
