Speaking to a group of supporters this weekend, Rep. Dana Rohrbacher (R-CA) completely dismissed global warming, rebuking belief in its negative effects as part of a greater plot by “liberals” to institute “global government.”
The Nation first reported on the remarks this weekend, which arose as Rorhbacker responded to California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer‘s comments that the recent slew of wildfires are the result of global warming.
“Just so you know, global warming is a total fraud,” Rohrbacher told the Newport Mesa Tea Party, explaining his belief that belief in anthropogenic climate change is part of a greater plot: “You’ve got liberals who get elected at the local level want state government to do the work and let them make the decisions. Then, at the state level, they want the federal government to do it. And at the federal government, they want to create global government to control all of our lives.”
He continued on with more warnings for his audience:
“That’s what the game plan is. It’s step by step by step, more and bigger control over our lives by higher levels of government. And global warming is that strategy in spades. Our freedom to make our choices on transportation and everything else? No, that’s gotta be done by a government official who, by the way, probably comes from Nigeria because he’s a UN government official, not a US government official.”
