But Sajak also voiced skepticism about global warming as far back as 2007 in a column for the conservative website Human Events, arguing that “a large (and growing) segment” of researchers were doing the same. To date, an overwhelming majority of studies on the matter have concluded that the planet’s changing climate patterns are cause for concern.
Sajak, who wrote for the site between 2007 and 2013, expressed similar sarcasm about global warming earlier this month, albeit in slightly more neutral terms:
Very hot weather: "We're all going to die!" Very cold weather: "There's a difference between climate & weather, moron!"
