Testimony of global warming skeptic irks some senators | Q13 FOX News
Easterbrook argued that the planet’s temperature has fluctuated up and down over several hundred years and that for the last decade the Earth has actually been cooling.
“There’s no correlation between CO2 going up and global warming,” he said.
State Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-Island County, who helped sponsor the recent climate bill, was clearly frustrated by Easterbrook’s testimony.
“Ninety-five percent of the peer-reviewed data very clearly states [?!] climate change is real, it’s happening, it’s human caused,” Ranker said. “To have a bold discussion about the facts is ridiculous.”
