Another search and I did find a statement in "get the facts."

I guess it says something but, all I see is "it was dumb". I'm sorry my skepticism offends some. I also know that we can't have the perfect candidate. I voted my conscience at the caucus and will support our candidate no matter who it is.

I doubt your "skepticism" offends anyone, but I'm not sure about your sincerity.

Let me help you since you seem reluctant to both post what Newt said or listen to his points:

Q: So why did Newt do the ad with Nancy Pelosi in 2007 calling for action to address climate change?

Newt does not believe there is a settled scientific conclusion about whether industrial development has dramatically contributed to a warming of the atmosphere.

Through his entire career, Newt has supported pro-market, pro-entrepreneur, innovative solutions to our environmental challenges, which he believes are superior to the liberal pro-bureaucracy, pro-tax, pro-regulation approach to the environment.

Newt believes that conservatives cannot be absent from the conversation about the environment and instead that conservatives must offer and explain why conservative solutions are better. Unfortunately, the attempt to get that message out through the ad with Nancy Pelosi failed. On November 8, 2011, Newt told FOX News’ Bret Baier that doing that commercial with Pelosi was “probably the dumbest single thing I’ve ever done”.

Newt will continue to oppose the Democrats’ destructive cap-and-trade and carbon tax proposals, continue to support expanded domestic oil and gas drilling, and continue to fight for a fundamental replacement of the job-killing Environmental Protection Agency with an Environmental Solutions Agency.


I don't know if you are sincere in your opinion concerning Newt on this issue or not, but that seems like a pretty good explanation.
