Supreme Court candidate Amy Coney Barrett declined to say whether she accepts the science of climate change, questioned by Kamala Harris, saying she lacks the expertise to be sure and calling it a subject too controversial.On Wednesday, Barrett framed the recognition of man-made climate change as a matter of policy, not science, when pressed during her confirmation hearing by the Democratic Senator from California.

Barrett said Harris, the Democratic vice-presidential candidate and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was trying to get her to express an opinion “on a very controversial issue of public debate, and I will not do that.”
