On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young welcome Dr. Bonner Cohen, an environment scholar, to address the controversy of global warming. Cohen explains the truth about climate change in terms of the big picture of Earth’s history. They discuss the problem with blaming climate change on the actions of humans and reveal the financial motivations behind the “green” movement.
