In 2017, Pennsylvania State Senator Scott Wagner (R) (now a candidate for Pennsylvania governor) explained his understanding of global warming: 'We're moving closer to the sun.'
Mr. Wagner made this comment and others as he keynoted an event for natural gas advocates in Harrisburg according to Penn Live.
> "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," Wagner, a York County state senator, said, according to StateImpact Pennsylvania. "We're moving closer to the sun."
> He added, according to StateImpact's Katie Meyer, that, "We have more people. You know, humans have warm bodies. So is heat coming off? Things are changing, but I think we are, as a society, doing the best we can."
Recently, Wagner said he wanted to stomp his opponent's face with golf cleats.
