Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH-07) 

Climate change denier

"With the recent reports that the data used regarding climate change that data was based on faulty, biased and unsubstantiated science, it is clear that science has not been able to document what is happening and if human activity is causing a problem or not. Many scientists are on both sides of this issue and the proponents of climate change have not substantiated their findings based on sound science."
