California Guv Trolls Climate-Denying Carson With Copy Of UN Report
"After Ben Carson this week dismissed those who believe in climate change and claimed that there is not significant evidence to back it up, California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) took it upon himself to provide Carson with some reading material on the science behind climate change."
"The governor sent Carson a flash drive with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's report on the science along with a letter urging Carson to read it, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Brown notes in the letter that the UN report "assessed over 30,000 scientific papers and was written by more than 800 scientists" and concluded that human beings contribute to climate change.
"Please use your considerable intelligence to review this material," Brown concluded in the letter. "Climate change is much bigger than partisan politics."
