Rohrabacher: Global warming is a liberal plot to "create global government"

The House Science Committee member said climate change is a "total fraud"

Speaking to a very receptive crowd at a town hall last Thursday, senior House Science Committee member congressman Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., delivered a decidedly unscientific rant on global warming as a "total fraud."

The federal government wants "to create global government to control all our lives," Rohrabacher explained, and the made-up threat of global warming is their way of taking our freedom. Complicit are the scientists who use their loads of research money to "intimidate people who disagree with their attempt to frighten all of us into changing our lives and giving up our freedoms to make choices.”

Who's making those choices? According to Rohrabacher, a government official who, by the way, "probably comes from Nigeria" via the United Nations.

Frightening, indeed.

Watch the congressman pontificate on Mars and the military industrial complex and do a spot-on imitation of Arnold Schwarzenegger:
