Rick Santorum on Climate Change: Talk to the Plants!

by at . Comments

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said yesterday that voters can trust his judgment on the environment ... and that climate change is baloney.

At the Gulf Coast Energy Summit in Biloxi, Mississippi, Santorum basically said that climate change is a liberal myth - in fact, plants are totally doing well!

"The dangers of carbon dioxide? Go tell that to a plant, how dangerous carbon dioxide is," he said. It's true. Plants eat that stuff up like it's their job!

Nice Rick Santorum Picture

"I didn't change as the climate changed," the ex-U.S. Senator added, seemingly likening Mitt Romney to ... the rising global temperatures he denies exist?

"I stood tall. Now the climate has changed and everyone's for drilling now. But please understand that when times were tough, they were not and I was."

In case it wasn't clear, Santorum said he stands alone in the GOP field as the opposite of President Obama on energy, calling global warming a "hoax."

On Saturday, an op-ed penned by Santorum on RedState (dot) com explained:

"The Washington Establishment would rather fight global warming than fight for American jobs ... President Obama and his administration have decided to wage war against global warming and thus against the American worker."

"Those living on or near the Gulf Coast in particular know the impact these extreme environmental positions can have on the region's economy."

What do you think: Is climate change real?

HAHAHAHA, "The dangers of carbon dioxide? Go tell that to a plant, how dangerous carbon dioxide is" Well why don't we all just live in the water. I mean the dangers of living in water? Go tell that to a fish, how dangerous water is.
