Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says the left is hypocritical when it comes to scientific consensus.

Appearing Wednesday on Sean Hannity's radio show, Rubio said that liberals who label him a climate-change denier cite "settled science" on the issue. But they are not so settled when it comes to the abortion issue.

"Let me give you a bit of settled science that they’ll never admit to. The science is settled, it’s not even a consensus, it is a unanimity, that human life begins at conception," Rubio told Hannity. "So I hope the next time that someone wags their finger about science, they’ll ask one of these leaders on the left: 'Do you agree with the consensus of science that human life begins at conception?'"

"That is a proven fact," Rubio said. "That’s a scientific consensus they conveniently choose to ignore."

Rubio most recently came under fire after an appearance Sunday on ABC's "This Week."  Rubio told ABC's Jonathan Karl that climate is often changing, but it can't all be blamed on human activity.
