This is an old tactic. "Some people say..." Who said that? You? Not you? Somebody else? No one ever said that?

They made a whole movie about this back in 2003, 2004 (2002?) it was called Outfoxed.

Trump Undoing Climate Protections - The Fate Of the Planet Is At Stake

Just as global warming appears to be reaching a dangerous new phase, Donald Trump has begun dismantling what little climate protections we do have.

West Virginia miners or the coal barons who've robbed their state blind?
