He further added, “You know it used to be it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.”
He said that his denier position about the climate change places him alongside the 17th century scientist Galileo Galilei, who is also considered to be denying the mainstream knowledge of his day.
He says just as Galileo took the minority view that the scientific method should be trusted over Catholic Church.
He is also following his lines and he is taking the minority view that human-caused climate change is not happening.
Galileo who discovered that it is the Earth which rotates around the sun, was excommunicates from the Church for his views.
