Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL) on Monday cited the extinction of the dinosaurs as proof that man-made global warming was a hoax.
During an interview on MSNBC, host Richard Lui asked Miller if the Republican Party was going to lose votes because of people like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who recently insisted that scientists were wrong about human activity causing climate change.
“Yes, the climate is changing. But it has been doing that for centuries,” Miller added. “And for us to say that it is a settled argument right now, I think, again, is a foolish argument to make because there are scientists on both sides of the issue that say that it is not settled.”
“But man made, isn’t that the question?” Lui pressed.
“But then, why did the dinosaurs go extinct?” Miller shot back in frustration. “Were there men that were causing — were there cars running around at that point that were causing global warming? No. The climate has changed since Earth was created.”
Some might beg to differ.
