Former President Barack Obama admitted “we can’t ascribe any particular” weather event to climate change during a discussion in Calgary, Canada on Tuesday.

The moderator of the event asked Obama for his opinion on how we can have “a better conversation about energy.”

“All of us are going to have to recognize that there are trade-offs involved with how we live, how our economy is structured, and the world we’re going to be passing on to our kids and our grandkids. And nobody is exempt from that conversation,” Obama said.

“The fact of the matter is that oil and gas have powered the industrial revolution, have powered Canada’s economy, the U.S. economy, and have powered the world,” Obama said. “It has been an extraordinary run and is still the cheapest means for us to power all the things that we do.”

“It is indisputable that the planet is getting warmer. It is indisputable that, although we can’t ascribe any particular event, weather event to rising temperatures, at the current pace that we are on the scale of tragedy that will consume humanity is something that we have not seen in perhaps recorded history if we don’t do something about it,” Obama added.

Obama continued his answer by going on to highlight several extreme effects that scientists predict could negatively impact humanity, resulting in massive amounts of deaths around the world because of climate change.

YouTube user eddiehosa posted Obama’s full 10-minute answer on their channel and it can be viewed here.
