New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Thursday let off some steam about the Republican presidential field, complaining that some candidates are skeptical of the science surrounding issues like global warming.

“We have presidential candidates who don’t believe in science,” Bloomberg said at a Columbia University economic forum, the New York Daily News reports. “I mean, just think about it, can you imagine a company of any size in the world where the CEO said ‘oh I don’t believe in science’ and that person surviving to the end of that day? Are you kidding me? It’s mind-boggling!”

The mayor declined to say which specific candidates he was talking about. “I don’t know,” he said. “You can check the presidential candidates’ speeches.”

Most of the GOP field has expressed skepticism about the significance of man-made global warming.
