Rep. Thomas Massie challenged President Obama to roll out the proof that humans have played a hand in climate change.
After devoting scant attention to climate change during his re-election campaign, President Obama pivoted sharply on the issue during his inauguration speech and promised to make addressing the threat of global warming a major priority in his second term.
"As somebody with a science-type background, I took offense at that," Mr. Massie told reporters Tuesday at a forum of congressional conservatives. "I would challenge him to show us the linkage — the undeniable linkage — between droughts and the change of the weather, and some kind of human activity."
Rep. Thomas Massie, Kentucky Republican and an MIT graduate, said Tuesday he was disappointed that Mr. Obama blamed droughts on "human activity" and accused some of "denying the evidence of scientists" in his inaugural address.
