Brit Hume calls them on it:

Who’s right? Let’s roll the tape.
KARL: Miami, Tampa, are two of the cities that are most threatened by climate change. So putting aside your disagreement with what to do about it, do you agree with the science on this? I mean, how big a threat is climate change?
RUBIO: I don’t agree with the notion that some are putting out there, including scientists, that somehow, there are actions that we can take today that would actually have an impact on what’s happening in our climate. Our climate is always changing. And what they have chosen to do is take a handful of decades of research and say that this is now evidence of a longer term trend that’s directly and almost solely attributable to manmade activity. I do not agree with that.
KARL: You don’t buy that.
RUBIO: I don’t know of any era in history where climate has been stable. Climate is always evolving and natural disasters have always existed.
KARL: Let me get this straight. You do not think that human activity, the production of CO2 has caused warming to our planet?
RUBIO: I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it. That’s what I do not — And I do not believe that the laws we pass will do anything about it. Except it will destroy our economy.
Who’s right? Brit Hume is right.
