What?… You mean polar bears are not falling from the sky?
This is so confusing.
Over two months ago, Mitt Romney told a New Hampshire audience, “I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that.” But, the world has changed since then and suddenly Romney finds himself in second place. Hence, the sudden junk science epiphany.
Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, in danger of losing his 2012 Republican primary front-runner status, on Wednesday he would not place restrictions on carbon emissions if elected.
Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, also said he does not know if human activity is the primary cause of climate change and does not favor spending heavily on climate solutions.
Asked about global warming at a town hall meeting in Lebanon, New Hampshire, Romney said he believed the world is getting hotter and humans contribute in some way to the change — but could not judge to what extent.
“Do I think the world’s getting hotter? Yeah, I don’t know that but I think that it is,” he said. “I don’t know if it’s mostly caused by humans.”
“What I’m not willing to do is spend trillions of dollars on something I don’t know the answer to.”
At least, he says he won’t blow trillions on this lunacy.
Meanwhile, Rick Perry says global warming is a hoax based scientists manipulating the data.
