CUOMO: But you don’t accept the science. Let me just move on to something else, though, which is—

CUOMO (talking simultaneously): You said you don’t know. I’m saying the scientific community does.
SCARAMUCCI: But you’re saying that you do, and you’re saying the scientific community knows, and I’m saying people have gotten things wrong throughout the 5,500-year history of our planet.
CUOMO (simultaneously): I think you have to distinguish between predictions and the fundamental proposition.SCARAMUCCI (simultaneously, correcting his last statement): Human history, I should say
