On Friday, February 8, Erika Bolstad of the left-wing McClatchy Newspapers wrote that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was “anti-science” for doubting manmade global climate change, an advocacy project that was made famous by ex- Vice President Al Gore, who recently sold his Current TV Network to oil producers in Qatar.
In her piece, Bolstad wrote:
…Rubio doesn’t think much of climate change, one of the other hot political topics of the moment. That puts the 41-year-old Rubio squarely in the anti-science wing of his party and among a shrinking number of Americans with doubts about global warming.
The Florida senator this week in an interview questioned whether “man-made activity” is contributing most to global warming, and he suggested there’s reasonable debate on whether there’s “significant scientific consensus” on the human role. He also questioned whether there’s anything the government can do to make a difference.
