COOL ON ROMNEY

Global warming skeptics continue to chastise Republican presidential hopefuls for supporting Al Gore-style climate alarmism. Sharp-eyed critics at ClimateDepot.com already have labeled Newt Gingrich, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Jon Hunstman Jr. as global-warming sympathizers, based on their public statements. Now it’s Mitt Romney’s turn.

“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,” Mr.. Romney said in “No Apology: The Case for American Greatness,” his recently released memoir.

“This statement obviously doesn’t bode well for the prospect that Romney would rein in the EPA and its endangerment finding and economy-killing greenhouse gas regulations. We now have Gingrich, Christie, Huntsman and Romney unable to grasp the basics of the climate con job,” says Marc Morano, founder of the watchdog group

“We must not tolerate the same pathetic George W. Bush strategy of accepting the alleged man-made global warming science but rejecting so-called solutions’,” Mr.. Morano adds.
