Mitt Romney & His Puzzling Views On Climate Change

Global warmist Romney has flip-flopped since running for president.

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has had numerous positions on climate change, carbon dioxide and global warming over the years.

His most recent views seem conservative, but as governor of Massachusetts, his views were in line with Al Gore’s views.

Human Events columnist Deroy Murdock recently outlined some of these “hot and cold” positions on global warming from the man who wishes to be President of the United States.

Murdock notes:

In 2004, Romney launched the Massachusetts Climate Protection Plan, “a coordinated statewide response to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the climate,” as his office described it.

Romney’s December 7, 2005 press release announced that “strict state limitations on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power plants take effect on January 1, 2006.”

“These carbon emission limits will provide real and immediate progress in the battle to improve our environment,” Romney said. This red tape, the communiqué noted, is designed to lower emissions of nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, and mercury from power plant smokestacks.” Furthermore, the experts whom Romney consulted “include John Holden [sic]…at Harvard University.”

“Romney (or his staff) was misled by John ‘Holden’ [sic], a rabid environmentalist and collaborator of the notorious Paul Ehrlich. John Holdren is now Obama’s science adviser,” says Dr. S. Fred Singer, Ph.D., a University of Virginia professor emeritus of physics and environmental science and the U.S. Weather Satellite Service’s founding director. “They consider CO2 a pollutant and mention it along with sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and mercury — all real pollutants, injurious to human health. Clearly, they had no clue about the science.”
“No one would choose such a green course, enlist such advisors, and then suddenly reverse himself,” the Cato Institute’s Dr. Patrick Michaels, Ph.D., tells me. “As president, Romney will revert to his more familiar green self.”

  1. The truth is Romney has over the past 6-8 years been on all sides of most issues that at least conservatives care about, and he has become progressively more conservative as the conservative movement has grown. Of course the same can be said but to a much lesser extent for the other candidates .However there is no question about the constitutionality of the other candidates to my knowledge. It would be a bitter pill for him to become the Republican candidate and be the same nature of fraud the damocrats foisted on the Republic. I do not question his loyalty to the nation. I have to question his committment to the Constitution since he is running for a constitutional office for which he is apparently not qualified , his not being a "natural born citizen" as required by Article II , Section 1 of the Constitution, in that both his father and his grandfather were Born Mexicans, His father was not born on US soil, he therefore cannot be a 'natural born' citizen! At least we now know why neither he nor the RINO establishment wanted to challenge the Constitutional eligibility of the Obamanation. They wanted to take advantage of the ignorance of the electorate to get by with the same scam!
