Anti-science quotable: Rep. Dana Rohrabacher #sciencematters

 repcalif

One of the big battles early on was about flouridation of the water. Remember that? Flouridation of the water. Well, I don’t know whether or not flouridating the water helps people’s teeth become better or not. I don’t know that. But I do know that in this country we should be the ones who are deciding what we put into our bodies one way or the other, not the federal government or the local government, putting flouride into our water.

Remember acid rain…ACID RAIN!!! … Thank god we had Ronald Reagan to stop that nonsense. So acid rain was going to come and destroy all the trees and destroy the rivers and the ponds and the infrastructure of our country’s gonna be disintegrating, because of acid rain. And he (Reagan) stood firm and said no… and basically it became a non-issue.

-Representative Dana Rohrabacher (48th District of California) at the Heartland Institute’s International Conference on Climate Change. Video of his speech here, including denial of ozone depletion as well.

Wikipedia on acid rain and water flouridation and Ozone layer with citations. Vice.com article further explaining how far from reality this anti-science babble is.
