Former Pennsylvania Republican senator Rick Santorum (pictured)compared scientists convinced of climate change to those who once called the world flat.
“I always have problems when people come up and say the science is settled,” Santorum said. “That’s what they said about the world being flat. When someone says the science is settled you’re not a scientist, because scientists never say the science is settled.”
He added: “The idea that the science is settled, to me, tells me that this is political science, not real science.”
