Where does he stand?

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been applauded by Al Gore for his stance on global warming. He has been getting advice from Obama’s scientific adviser, super greenie John Holdren. Now he’s trying to paint himself as a skeptic.

“I don’t speak for the scientific community, of course, but I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that,” he said. “I can’t prove that, but I believe based on what I read that the world is getting warmer.

“No. 2, I believe that humans contribute to that,” Romney continued. “I don’t know how much our contribution is to that, because I know there’s been periods of greater heat and warmth than in the past, but I believe we contribute to that. And so I think it’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may well be significant contributors to the climate change and global warming that you’re seeing.”

He looks quite uncomfortable discussing this topic.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    Apparently 58% of Americans are not aware that Mitt Romney is a member of the Mormon Cult. The Mormons believe that they are going to all be gods. It is a core tenet of their beliefs. Who needs another wanna be god as President, wasn’t Obama’s Messiah act enough?

    Has the US reached the bottom of the barrel yet?
