Draft summary for the individual at Wikipedia
In April 2016, Matt Gaetz was paraphrased as saying "there is no denying the planet is warming, but more needs to be done to determine whether it's a natural cycle of warming and cooling or if humans are irreversibly harming the planet," (1). He opposes funding the Green Climate Fund, saying "we need to focus on priorities in our country before looking to solve problems elsewhere," (2).
