Sen. Rubio: ‘No Consensus on the Sensitivity of the Climate’
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was on “The O’Reilly Factor” to discuss some controversial comments that he made about climate change.
“I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”
Rubio told Bill O’Reilly that the climate is always changing, but it’s not clear how much of that is due to humans.
“There is no consensus on the sensitivity of the climate – how much is it changing and how much of it is directly attributable to human carbon emission. There’s no consensus on that which is why the models vary so greatly, which is why despite 17 years of dramatic increases in carbon production by humans, surface temperatures in the earth have stabilized,” he said.
Rubio said that none of the liberal proposals would do anything about the problem. He said the laws that liberals want to impose would destroy our economy and have no impact due to polluting countries like China and India.
Rubio also weighed in on the Obama administration’s response to issues, like the VA scandal. He said the White House has a systematic problem with governing and is more concerned with what the administration will say instead of what it will do about an issue. He said the White House is also quick to dismiss GOP criticism as a partisan attack.
