Marco Rubio says that climate change is a natural occurrence, and that human activity is not causing the dramatic climate changes.  Rubio also does not believe that the laws that that are being proposed to mitigate climate change will have any impact – except that they will destroy our economy. Transcript follows:

This week the White House released a dramatic new report on the dangers of climate change.


Reporter: Do you agree with the science on this? I mean how big a threat is climate change?

Marco 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 was 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.

Reporter: You don’t by that?

Rubio:  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.

Reporter: But let me get this straight.  You do not think that human activity – the production of CO2 – has caused warming to our planet?

Rubio: I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it.  And, I do not believe that the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it – except, it will destroy our economy.

    Oh come on, really? “climate change is a natural occurrence, and that human activity is not causing the dramatic climate changes.” I’m not sure what planet you’re on, but I’m on the one where the oceans are acidifying at their fastest for 300 million years, where the creatures are dying off at over 100 species a day, where over 50% of the trees have gone since the beginning of the industrial revolution just 200 years ago, where the north polar ice is so thin, they can now get the oil from under it and where dangerous pockets of methane are now being released because of it. And you’re saying this has no effect on the climate? Perhaps on Venus where the surface temperature is 400 Centigrade!

    Look, this is what the proponents of climate change don’t get when comments like these are made. He and those who think similarly are trying to balance the biased and agenda driven info. started, primarily, by Al Gore and the subsidized scientists who stand to gain something, not for the general good, but for themselves. Yes, there are man-made actions that are detrimental to our planet but they are puny compared to the true forces of nature. Take his comments and let them balance what the other side is putting out because that info. may also be filled with some untruths. Remember, so much of the news nowadays is not impartial.
