An adviser on the Trump transition team turned heads Wednesday when he likened modern climate science to the ancient belief that the Earth was flat.
“I know that the current president believes that human beings are affecting the climate,” Anthony Scaramucci, a member of the president-elect’s presidential transition team executive committee, said Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day” program. “There are scientists that believe that that’s not happening.”

Scaramucci, a founder of SkyBridge Capital and co-host of Fox Business Network’s program “Wall Street Week,” appeared on the program Wednesday morning to discuss the incoming administration’s stance on climate change and the transition team’s recent request for the names of Energy Department employees who have worked on issues related to climate change.
