Governor Ron DeSantis dismisses climate change concerns; promotes oil drilling

Gov. Ron DeSantis dismissed fears about climate change plunging the planet into crisis Wednesday during an event in Texas where he rolled out an energy policy platform focused on developing latest sources of fossil fuels.
