Pennsylvania State Senator Scott Wagner (R, York) said this last week, talking about why climate change is happening:
"I haven't been in a science class in a long time, but the earth moves closer to the sun every year--you know the rotation of the earth. We're moving closer to the sun." [WITF-FM, Harrisburg, 3/28/17]
Then he added another original theory:
"We have more people...you know, humans have warm bodies. So, is heat coming off?”
The only thing that is true in what he said is that he hasn’t been in a science class in a long time.
Help us give Wagner a good basic education.
We’re going to send Wagner back to school. We’ve identified some good basic science classes at his local community college. And we’re going to offer to pay his tuition and buy his books.
Will you help us send Wagner back to school? Chip in $5 or more.
If he doesn’t accept our offer, we’ll find other ways to make sure he gets an education on climate change and other issues. We’ll call him, send him emails, visit his office and take other direct actions.
