Sen. Roger Wicker – ‘Tolerance’ needed for different climate change views

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) said Thursday that people should be more open minded to differing opinions on climate change.

“At the very least, I think it’s time for some tolerance in the public discourse regarding the many scientific viewpoints on climate change. Respect should be shown to those who have done the research and come to a different conclusion,” Wicker said during a Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing on climate science.

The consensus in the scientific community is that climate change is occurring, and that humans contribute to it.
