Romney’s climate-change flip-flop
Mitt Romney is playing a game on Tea Party Republicans in an effort to win their votes in the primaries. But with the advent of the information age and its comprehensive records of what each candidate says, Mr. Romney may get tripped up.
He recently told an audience in Pittsburgh, “My view is that we don’t know what’s causing climate change on this planet.” It’s hard to reconcile this statement with an earlier one he made: “I believe, based on what I read, that the world is getting warmer. And number two, I believe that humans contribute to this.”
Which is it, Mitt? Or does it depend on the crowd you’re playing to?
What happens in the presidential election, when the Republican anti-climatechange stance isn’t the defining factor? Will we get to see Romney do another one of his flip-flops? RON LOWE Nevada City, Calif.
