“Everybody has an opinion on it and I probably don’t believe that it’s man made. I believe, you know, that weather elements are controlled by other things.”

- Context: Prior to her on energy at the Western Governors Association, Gov. Brewer was asked about her thoughts on climate change, to which she responded that she “probably” didn’t believe it was man made. This contradicts the scientific consensus within the academic community on anthropogenic, or man made, climate change. In 2011, Brewer issued an executive order pulling Arizona out of the Western Climate Initiative, a multi-state attempt to limit green house gas emissions.
