Skepticism about man-made climate change— once seen as a fairly fringe belief, now a pretty big topic of political debate — is increasingly the norm among Republican voters. A December 2009 Ipsos/McClatchy pollfound only 57 percent of GOP voters saying climate change was happening at all, and a 42 percent minority chalking it up to human activity.
In “No Apology,” Mitt Romney sets himself up in the shrinking “climate change is happening but we don’t need a carbon tax” camp.
I believe that climate change is occurring — the reduction in the size of global ice caps is hard to ignore. I also believe that human activity is a contributing factor.
Again, this issue is evolving so fast, with people like Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) becoming Tea Party folk heroes and sites like Pajamas Mediademanding that Al Gore return his Academy Award, that by the timeIowa caucus-goers come out, Romney might be in the deep minority of GOPers.
