Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio in a new interview says
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.
PolitiFact looks at the evidence, and says that Rubio is lying.
What is ironic is that Rubio represents Florida, a state that is particularly vulnerable to climate change. Research shows that Miami and Tampa will almost certainly be flooded by rising sea levels, brought on by rapid melting of the Antarctic ice sheets. I wonder what that will do to Florida’s economy.
And hypocritically, even though Rubio seems willing to deny the vast amount of science behind climate change, he seems only too willing to make claims without any evidence at all that doing something about it will destroy our economy.
