Pennsylvania State Senator Scott Wagner came out as a climate science denier when giving a keynote address for natural gas advocates. According to WITF’s Katie Meyer:
[Scott Wagner] also took the stance that climate change is probably happening, though–citing scientifically unsound evidence–he maintained that the US shouldn’t worry too much about emissions.
“I haven’t been in a science class in a long time, but the earth moves closer to the sun every year–you know the rotation of the earth,” Wagner said. “We’re moving closer to the sun.”
He added, “We have more people…you know, humans have warm bodies. So is heat coming off? Things are changing…but I think we are, as a society, doing the best we can.”
This is convenient for someone who has made millions owning various trash hauling companies that relied on fleets of fossil fuel diesel burning trucks.
