Donald Trump has revealed Texas Governor Greg Abbott is ‘absolutely’ on his shortlist of potential running mates after their trip to the border on Thursday.

The Republican presidential frontrunner’s list of possible vice president’s is growing – with Senator Tim Scott, Ben Carson, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and Rep. Elise Stefanik in the frame.

Others believed to be in the frame after Vivek RamaswamyFlorida Governor Ron DeSantis, Rep. Byron Donalds and Trump’s former press secretary-turned Governor of Arkansas Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

But the former president, 77, added another name to the list overnight as he heads full steam to a general election rematch with President Joe Biden in November.

‘Absolutely, he is,’ Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity of Abbott in an interview with him near Eagle Pass.

Trump then praised Scott, considered one of the favorites to be picked, and wouldn’t reveal if there were any other candidates he was considered.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
