RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory went on two national talk shows Sunday to talk about climate change and the winter storms that have iced over the state in the past two weeks.
On both "Face the Nation" and "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," McCrory was asked about his comments while running for governor in 2008 that he doesn't get caught up in the global warming debate because he thinks it's in God's hands.
McCrory said Sunday he thinks there has always been climate change. But instead of focusing on global warming, the governor says people should concentrate on keeping the air and water clean.
McCrory also said environmental protection is a delicate balancing act with economic development and affordable power.
