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."
