Hillary Clinton’s campaign is out with a new video panning the Republican presidential field as “mad scientists” who deny the effects of climate change.

 

The new spot centers on the use of the phrase “I’m not a scientist” by Republican candidates when discussing climate change.

 

“Faced with the threat of climate change, Republicans repeat one chilling phrase: I am not a scientist,” the spot says, before running down instances where former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), former Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas), and Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) all said the line.

 

“Feel the terror as they deny established science,” the video continues, as video of former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.), and Donald Trump all push back against the idea that humans cause global warming or that there’s action that can be taken to prevent it.

 

“And the scariest part? One of these mad (not a) scientists could be president,” the ad closes.
