Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney appears to be changing his tune on alleged “man-made global warming.”
In response to the former Massachusetts governor recently stating that he would not willing to spend trillions of dollars on global-warming research when he does not know whether it is mostly caused by humans, ClimateDepot.com executive editor Marc Morano says it sounds like a flip-flop.
“Mitt Romney has gone full-circle on this issue, and it will leave a lot of Republican voters scratching their heads [and wondering], Does he really mean this, or is it politically convenient?”
He has no doubt that Romney is feeling the pressure of a leading skeptic, Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Oklahoma), whom Morano calls a “defiant and proud climate skeptic.”
“This was hours after Senator Inhofe came out and said that Romney was ‘mushy’ on environmental issues, including global warming. And … Senator Inhofe had just endorsed Rick Perry,” Morano explains.
