Mitt started to get the hang of skepticism and then screwed it up.
According to Politico:
Speaking at an event in Manchester, N.H., Romney criticized the Obama EPA for its push to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, and suggested the agency has its priorities in the wrong place.
“I’m all in favor of eliminating pollution,” Romney said. “Now I know there is also a movement to say that carbon dioxide should be guided or should be managed by the Environmental Protection Agency. I disagree with that.
“I exhale carbon dioxide,” he added. “I don’t want those guys following me around with a meter to see if I’m breathing too hard.”
But Romney then quickly slipped back into eco-alarmism:
“Clearly the role of governments, federal, state and local, is to protect our air and water. If we’re killing ourselves with mercury or other pollutants that affect our air, our water and our food supply, that’s something we have to address and cut back on those dangers,” Romney said.
Later, he added on mercury: “It’s a pollutant that obviously affects you in life and I very much support efforts to reduce the pollutants in our environment. They surely have an impact on our health.” [Emphasis added]
And surely you just lost your anti-green points for today.
