House Republican says it’s ‘arrogant’ to link humans to climate change

Oh I bet this is a big deal on liberal blogs who are probably decrying this Republican as anti-science. But I post this because I’m glad Rep. Todd Rokita from Indiana made these comments, standing up to the Climate Change racket, and I want to draw attention to him:

HUFFPO – Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Ind.) said Friday that he does not believe humans are responsible for climate change, according to The Purdue Exponent.

“I think it’s arrogant that we think as people that we can somehow change the climate of the whole earth when science is telling us that there’s a cycle to all this,” Rokita said in an interview with the college paper after a town hall meeting in Lebanon, Ind. “And that cycle was occurring before the industrial revolution and I suspect will occur way into the future.”

When asked by a constituent about government subsidies for renewable energy sources like wind and solar, Rokita said that he respects “God’s green earth,” but that the private market should decide which energy sources receive funding.
