GOP Global Warming And Climate Denier Seeks To Chair House Science Committee

GOP Climate Denier Seeks To Chair House Science Committee

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) dismissed climate change research as “junk science” and sings the praises of offshore oil rigs.

Now, the Republican congressman is angling to be the chair of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee if Republicans maintain control of Congress after November, according to Roll Call.

In 2008, during a speech where he lambasted the “onslaught of nonsense being foisted upon humankind in the name of man-made global warming,” Rohrabacher went on to suggest “dinosaur flatulence” may have been responsible for previous changes in global temperatures.
