"I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that." - Mitt Romney. "The world is getting warmer": Romney
First off, global warming SHOULD NOT be a religion. What Mitt BELIEVES is irrelevant. Facts matter. If the earth is truly getting warmer, it is not, there is absolutely no proof that mankind has anything to do with it. In fact, even if man wanted to change the global climate, how could he?
The sun plays the biggest role in the earth's climate. And if you buy into the illogical view that CO2 is evil, by far, the largest CO2 emitters are the oceans, which make up 75% of the planet surface. Man, who only lives in any appreciable density on less than 10% of the earth surface - and even less from a volume standpoint, has virtually no influence on GLOBAL climate.
Even IF man was responsible for climate change, the solutions pushed by the global warming Nazis would do nothing except further destroy the economy. We cannot run a modern economy on windmills, solar panels, hope and change. You need power - oil, coal, gas and nuclear to drive the economic engine. As we have seen throughout Europe, and very much so in Spain, a "green" economy equals a stagnant, if not dying economy. Can the US economy get any worse - Yes It Can!
Romney has already made the bold move to cling to his health care debacle in Massachusetts (RomneyCare), which as luck would have it, was the model used for Obamacare - the worst legislation ever to come out of Washington.
I feel bad for the guy. He has campaigned so hard for so many election cycles, and is the darling of the GOP bigwigs. But his campaign for Conservatives was going nowhere before. And now with this foolish position on "global warming" established, his campaign for the GOP nomination is DOA.
I'm still thinking he has a chance as a Democrat though.
