Proving once again that being politically conservative doesn’t have to mean denying that problems exist, Mitt Romney has reaffirmed his stance that humans are causing significant climate change. Read all about it in The Boston Globe.
It looks like Romney and Huntsman are the only Republican presidential hopefuls who haven’t jumped with both feet into the contrarian camp. I expect waffling from politicians, and both Romney (especially Romney) and Huntsman have done their share. But moving into anti-science-anti-reality just to mollify the slack-jawed-loud-mouthed wing of the party is going beyond the pale, for me. I’m glad the two Mormons in the race have the integrity not to go there, at least. Hopefully they can help move the debate over to what should be done, rather than whether there is really a problem.
