John Boehner: "I'm Not Qualified To Debate Science Over Climate Change"

John Boehner says he's not a scientist.

House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday that he's "not qualified to debate the science over climate change" while slamming the Obama Administration proposed plans to deal with rising global temperatures.

"Listen, I'm not qualified to debate the science over climate change," Boehner said. "I am astute to understand that every proposal that has come out of this administration to deal with climate change involves hurting our economy and killing American jobs. That can't be the prescription for dealing with changes to our climate."

According to NASA, 97% of scientists agree on climate change being due to human activity.

Boehner has in the past called the Obama Administration's climate change action plans "absolutely crazy" and has questioned whether climate change was man-made in the past.
