California's "fire seasons" have become a major concern and many believe that climate change is a factor. While the general consensus among scientists is that the climate is changing, leading to a drastic disruption in weather patterns, one famous conservative has a different take on the issue.

Hollywood or "famous people" in the entertainment industry often get labeled as liberals right out of the gate, but that's not always the case. Taking to his Twitter feed, the host of ABC's Wheel of Fortune, Pat Sajak decided to go on a mini Twitter sized rant against climate change, stated that people who believe in global warming are "Unpatriotic Racists."

"Pat Sajak -@patsajak

I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.

10:38 PM - 19 May 2014"

Nearly 97 percent of scientists believe that climate change is not only happening, but that humans are contributing in a negative way. Conservatives seem to deny science at every turn, or at least when anti-science lobbyists throw money in their direction. Pat Sajek, like Rep. Marco Rubio (R-FL) earlier this week, want Americans to trust their word over that of trusted scientists who specialize in the field.
