Recently, various media outlets have reported on Romneys statement in which he expressed support for global warming: I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that. This despite the last two winters being among the coldest in recent history and the recent evidence revealing pro-global warming scientists to have made fraudulent claims and suppressed contrary views. Romney also called for America to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases, which, will, of course entail massive new government programs despite air quality in the United States being among the cleanest in the world.
I have always argued that Romneys long history of promoting liberal causes make him unfit as the GOP nominee and that should he win, his lack of a consistent worldview would set the party back decades. But the Romney is a conservative myth has become so entrenched that when people hear about his global warming views, theyre surprised. But Romney has always held liberal views on the environment hes just downplayed them for the last five years and hoped no one would notice.
Most voters seem unaware of that Romney ran for Governor on a global warming platform. In 2004, Governor Romney initiated the Massachusetts Climate Protection Plan which just about every New England free market group attacked due to the harmful effects the plan would have upon the states economy. This plan morphed into a larger regional plan called the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), that Romney and ten other liberal Northeastern governors signed. The goal of the pact was to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by ten percent by 2019. This pact, of course, assumed the global warming theory was scientific fact and to carry it out its wide-ranging dictates, Romney hired Douglas Foy, a radical environmental activist.

rinos are like weeds,, they keep coming back.
There is no doubt Romney will try to pass some sort of “common sense” earth cooling plan. There are a very large number of RINOs and others who do not understand that even spending trillions of dollars will have no effect on temperature whether one believes the skeptics or the alarmists. CO2 is not a problem, but if it was, it is not a solvable problem.
No kiddin!!! He's right in there with the GovernMental EnvironMental knot-heads that think we should squander more trillions until we get the air STERILE!!!
Oh! And the water, too!!!
