Romney: On Second Thought, Maybe Humans Aren’t the Cause of Climate Change… Mostly

Over two months ago, Mitt Romney told a New Hampshire audience, “I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that.” Al Gore offered praise and polar bears rejoiced.

At some point between that early June day and now, Romney had a scientific or political epiphany that caused him to tweak his position:

He was asked about global warming at a town hall meeting in Lebanon, New Hampshire, and said he believed the world is getting hotter and humans contribute in some way to the change.

“Do I think the world’s getting hotter? Yeah, I don’t know that but I think that it is,” he said. “I don’t know if it’s mostly caused by humans.

“What I’m not willing to do is spend trillions of dollars on something I don’t know the answer to.”

It’s not an official anthropomorphic flip-flop yet because Romney’s still of the opinion that humans are causing the climate to change — it’s just a question of how much (or little). One thing’s for sure: Whether or not at some point Romney flat-out says humans aren’t the cause of climate change — or even declares himself a proud global warming denier — will directly correlate with his standing in the polls. That science is settled.
