Third Eye Blind Guitarist Takes Marco Rubio To Task On Climate Change

Guitarist Stephan Jenkins sat down with Rolling Stone after the last GOP debate and gave Marco Rubio a piece of his mind.

"Marco Rubio says, 'I'm not a scientist,'" notes Jenkins, referring to Rubio's infamous remark to GQ in 2012, in response to the question "How old do you think the Earth is?"

Jenkins goes on: "Sen. Rubio, I'm not a scientist either. In my case, I'm a rhythm guitarist. But I did take science in high school. And I'd be embarrassed, as you should be, for not actually understanding what global climate change is, and how it is clearly affected by men. So if I may, I'd just like to explain it to him real quick."

Jenkins then succinctly describes the basic premise of global climate change – how it's happening, and why.

"Now you know," Jenkins tells Rubio after his mini science lecture. "And I'm famous enough to know that somebody in your staff is a Third Eye Blind fan, and that you've been told this shit."
