Stance on Climate Change
"The evidence is powerful, straightforward, and damning. NASA satellite instruments precisely measuring global temperatures show absolutely no warming during the past the past 10 years." 
"Without a doubt, the warming of the past 100 years has been a welcome respite from a long and deadly Little Ice Age. The possibility that humans may have contributed to the recent warming does not make it any less welcome." 
"A primary reason why we are involved in climate change is [that] assertions of a global warming crisis are being utilized to impose restrictions on the economy, on free choices across the economy," he said in a recent interview.
"To that extent, we want to make sure that the science justifies these restrictions on free markets and on individual liberty, and the best evidence indicates that the science does not justify these restrictions, so that's why we are involved," he added.
