Mitt Romney: Climate Change is Real and Humans Contribute

Climate change is a fraud and this won't get you in the WH, Mitt

Mitt Romney is not a climate change denier. As he considers a third presidential bid, Romney cited climate change as one of those issues that political leaders in Washington are failing to address.

“I’m one of those Republicans who thinks we are getting warmer and that we contribute to that,” he said Wednesday at an investment management conference in Utah, the Associated Press reported.

Although he gave no clues about a 2016 race, Romney outlined some of the issues that could be central to a campaign and listed climate change, poverty and education among them.

Climate change was not an issue at the forefront of the 2012 presidential race. Leaders of environmental groups and scientists noted that climate change was not a topic in the 2012 presidential debates.

Romney consistently has said he believes human activity contributes to global warming. In his 2010 book, No Apology, he wrote of this belief and added that he was “uncertain how much of the warming, however, is attributable to man and how much is attributable to factors out of control.”
