Brown sent a letter to Carson on Thursday citing California’s debilitating drought as one example of man-made climate change.

“Please use your considerable intelligence to review this material,” Brown wrote in the letter, according to CNN. “Climate change is much bigger than partisan politics.”
 
He also included a flash drive containing a U.N. report on the subject.
 
Carson had said there is no “overwhelming science that the things that are going on are man-caused and not naturally caused” earlier this week.
 
Carson’s communications director Doug Watts told CNN the campaign had not received the letter when asked for comment Saturday.
 
Watts did say that Carson is not a “climate denier,” saying he preferred “climate questioner.”
 
“He has a different standard of persuasion and proof,” Watts said. “Nothing more. He questions [climate change] and cares about the environment.”
 
“He could be persuaded,” he added.
