I would tell him that when sites like this one start patting him on the back, it is time to stop and think
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is now officially in the race and is out and about meeting the voters in New Hampshire. These unscripted interactions are when we get to really see what a candidate thinks (or at least watch him or her squirm when asked the uncomfortable questions). For many candidates, questions about climate change unfortunately fall into the uncomfortable category. But today Romney went on record saying that there is anthropogenic climate change and that we need to act.
Really Mitt, really? Here is the rub Mitt, see, your economic policies, and business experience are your strongest suit. But when you start saying things like this people might start to question your authenticity
I don’t speak for the scientific community, of course, but I believe the world’s getting warmer. I can’t prove that, but I believe based on what I read that the world is getting warmer. And number two, I believe that humans contribute to that. I don’t know how much our contribution is to that, because I know that there have been periods of greater heat and warmth in the past but I believe we contribute to that. And so I think it’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may well be significant contributors to the climate change and the global warming that you’re seeing.
Now, Mitt, I might just be a blogger, but I am smart enough to realize that the folks who buy into the BS that The Church of Al Gore is pushing are never ever going to vote for you. So, if this is pandering for votes, it will fail miserably. Not to mention that it cuts into your credibility as a pro-business guy, not to mention that whole Romneycare thing.
There is also another problem here Mitt, the evidence is growing that man-made warming is, well BS! As my buddy Steve points out
Uhhh, first the entire globe is not warming Mitt. All you need to do is look around you.
Here are temperature measurements from the Danish Meteorological Institute taken in the Arctic above the 80th parallel. And guess what, nothing is changing.
And in 1958:
So Mitt, do yourself a favor throw your advisers off that campaign you just launched. Stop pandering to wacky Leftists who hate cats and would not vote for you if Hell froze over, which they likely think is happening anyway, and focus on your strength Mitt.
