Marco Rubio: I’m Ready to Be President, and Climate Change Is a Hoax
Speaking today on ABC’s This Week, Marco Rubio announced that he’s “ready to be President,” in between ranting about Benghazi, of course. And to prove what a marvelous leader he would be, Rubio says all those scientists are just wrong. Never mind the stupid eggheads, Rubio knows the truth: man-made climate change is a hoax.
Good grief. If you need any more evidence that anti-science craziness is deeply ingrained in the Republican Party, here’s one of their front-runners for the Presidency completely denying the mountains of scientific evidence for human-caused climate change.
RUBIO: 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, 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 man-made activity. I do not agree with that.
I don’t know of any era in world history where the climate has been stable. Climate is always evolving and natural disasters have always existed.
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.
