Rick Santorum Knows How To Fix Global Warming.

In case anyone was wondering, Global Warming is a problem. It is a problem because people are poorly informed by the media and believe the “settled science.” This science consists of “known facts” designed to alarm us into making economically stupid decisions that give way too much power to dictatorial bureaucrats. But there is a way for us to save our beleaguered planet.

GOP Candidate Rick Santorum leads the way to environmental sanity and clearer air below.

SANTORUM: I believe the earth gets warmer, and I also believe the earth gets cooler, and I think history points out that it does that and that the idea that man through the production of CO2 which is a trace gas in the atmosphere and the manmade part of that trace gas is itself a trace gas is somehow responsible for climate change is, I think, just patently absurd when you consider all of the other factors, El Nino, La Nina, sunspots, you know, moisture in the air. There’s a variety of factors that contribute to the earth warming and cooling, and to me this is an opportunity for the left to create — it’s a beautifully concocted scheme because they know that the earth is gonna cool and warm. It’s been on a warming trend so they said, “Oh, let’s take advantage of that and say that we need the government to come in and regulate your life some more because it’s getting warmer,” just like they did in the seventies when it was getting cool, they needed the government to come in and regulate your life because it’s getting cooler. It’s just an excuse for more government control of your life, and I’ve never been for any scheme or even accepted the junk science behind the whole narrative.

Voters may not understand that Michael Mann cheated like The Old Chicago Black Sox on how he employed principal components analysis to build the Hockey Stick Curve. They may not get that Cap and Trade is actually worse than a Carbon Tax because it forces people to have to beg political leaders to issue them more carbon credits. Thus it acts to give corrupt politicians more chances to influence peddle.

But they do understand that governments invent new “disasters” and single out Big Business as a villain any time they want to ram some unpopular power grab down an electorate’s throat. Voters will get Santorum’s message because it tracks the history of progressive mendacity to advance the cause of meddlesome big government. Rick Santorum has the cure for Global Warming. If he successfully debunks its GOP supporters, his campaign will serve the American economy quite well.
