Rep. Rohrabacher, you should immediately apologize to all Californians for dismissing the growing threat of wildfires in our state, and calling climate change "a total fraud." If you are unwilling to accept the vast scientific consensus on climate change you should immediately resign your position on the House Science Committee.
