And that cycle was occurring before the industrial revolution and I suspect will occur way into the future.”
The Huffington Post, which picked up the quote, adds that Rokita was one of the recipients of Organizing for Action’s “Climate Denier Awards” earlier this month. Perhaps instead of a unicorn trophy, he would have benefitted more from a science textbook.
