Sanders mocks House Science Committee for tweeting Breitbart article
Sen. Bernie Sanders took to Twitter on Thursday to mock the GOP-controlled House Science Committee for sharing a Breitbart article on climate change science.
The Vermont independent and former presidential candidate took issue with a climate change-denying article sent out by the panel earlier in the afternoon.

The diss, whether from Sanders himself, or an aide, was applauded on Twitter.

The Breitbart article, titled “Global Temperatures Plunge. Icy Silence from Climate Alarmists,” denied climate change and said the Earth is actually cooling. Sanders has been an outspoken advocate of climate policy and has expressed frustration with President-elect Donald Trump’s view of climate change — that it is an anti-business hoax.
