Marco Rubio: I Don’t Agree With Scientists On Climate Change Because Derp
Climate change isn’t coming, it’s already here and will only worsen, according to reports. That includes flooding, wildfires and drought,depending on where you live. But never mind all that facty stuff. On Sunday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said he doesn’t believe that human activity is behind climate change.
Rubio said on ABC’s ‘This Week,’ “I don’t agree with the notion that some are putting out there, including scientists, that somehow there are actions we can take today that would actually have an impact on what’s happening in our climate.”
He went on to sciencesplain, “Our climate is always changing. And what they have chosen to do is take a handful of decades of research and say that this is now evidence of a longer-term trend that’s directly and almost solely attributable to manmade activity, I do not agree with that.”
ABC’s Jonathan Karl asked, “But let me get this straight, you do not think that human activity, its production of CO2, has caused warming to our planet?”
Rubio remarked, “I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it. That’s what I do not — and I do not believe that the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it. Except it will destroy our economy,” Rubio responded.”
In December of 2012, Rubio said, “Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to answer that. It’s one of the great mysteries.”
