California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) sent Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson a letter over the retired neurosurgeon's claim that there is "no overwhelming science" indicating global warming is caused by man.
Carson made the comment in a recent interview with the San Francisco Chronicle conducted while he visited The Golden State.
"I hope you've enjoyed your visit to the Golden State. It's come to my attention that while you were here you said the following regarding climate science," Brown wrote Carson before quoting the presidential candidate's global warming claim.

Brown told Carson that he had included a USB flash drive "with the complete United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change" report, noting it's one of many studies that indicate climate change is caused by man's actions.
"These aren't just words. The consequences are real," Brown wrote.
The Democratic governor added, "Please use your considerable intelligence to review this material. Climate change is much bigger than partisan politics."
TheBlaze reached out to Carson's campaign for comment, but had not heard back by the time of publication.
