Unfortunately, he doesn’t walk back his globull warming beliefs, and, more importantly, his belief in legislation and regulation to “stop” globull warming
(Huffington Post) Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was pressed again Tuesday on one of the ghosts of his political past, when a notorious advertisement on climate change featuring him alongside then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was brought up on the campaign trail.
“The dumbest thing I’ve done in the last four years was sit on a couch with Nancy Pelosi,” Gingrich said, according to The Hill‘s Mike O’Brien. “I can’t defend it.”
In the ad, Gingrich and Pelosi share a seat on a sofa in front of the Capitol and declare that “the country must take action to address climate change.”
While Newt is (supposedly) against any sort of federal cap and trade system, he has yet to say, like Romney has, that he would nix any “climate change” legislation and regulations as president. Some people may not care too much about this, but, to my mind, the entire issue of “climate change” is about putting even more power and forcibly taken taxpayer money in the hands of government elites, giving them more control over our lives and the economy. None of the plans actually solve what the Warmists say is killing the Earth, merely supposedly slowing it.
This is a question Newt needs to answer.
