“I be­lieve that cli­mate change is oc­cur­ring — the re­duc­tion in the size of global ice caps is hard to ig­nore. I also be­lieve that hu­man ac­tiv­ity is a con­tribut­ing fac­tor. Sci­en­tists are nearly unan­i­mous in lay­ing the blame for ris­ing tem­per­a­tures on green­house gas emis­sions,” pres­i­den­tial hopeful Mitt Rom­ney re­cently told the world in “No Apol­ogy: The Case for Amer­i­can Great­ness,” his re­cently re­leased mem­oir.

That didn’t go over so well with global warm­ing skep­tics. But Al Gore? He’s pleased.

“Good for Mitt Rom­ney — though we’ve long passed the point where weak lip ser­vice is enough on the cli­mate cri­sis. While other Repub­li­cans are run­ning from the truth, he is stick­ing to his guns in the face of the anti-science wing of the Repub­li­can Party,” Mr. Gore says.

“Wave bye-bye to the nom­i­na­tion,” coun­ters Marc Mo­rano, founder of the watch­dog news site Cli­mate De­pot.
