Skip to comments.Santorum: Global warming is politics, not science (Finally someone to tell it like it is!)

Rick Santorum says President Barack Obama is pushing a radical environmental agenda that unwisely limits energy production and turns its back on science.
Santorum told voters in eastern Ohio on Monday that science is on the side of those who want to aggressively produce more oil and natural gas in America. He said the notion of global warming is not climate science but "political science."

A lot of Conservatives have been waiting a very long time for someone to stand up against this hoax, not sit on a couch or pass cap and trade in support of the hoax.
Now, keep it up for 3 or 4 days eh?
And watch out for the environmentalists... they are hard at work trying to shut down the fracking in northern PA. Which was a very hard hit economic area that has been turned into a boom area! But hey we can’t have that now can we? The dems need the welfare slaves.
I’m glad Santorum stood his ground on the global warming scam throughout. It was hard to do. Even President Bush gave in during his second term and signed onto it, but before ClimateGate the pressures to conform politically were immense.
It’s to his credit that he did so, even though that might have been just one more reason for his 2006 election rout. Santorum’s positions, and particularly his principles, haven’t changed since 2006, so it will be extremely interesting to see if the Pennsylvania voters’ opinion of his positions and principles have changed in six years. I’m betting that they have, and that they reward him for his steadfastness while everyone else, including President Bush, was caving in. We’ll see.
I guess I would have said :
global warming is not climate science but "politicized science."
Rick is right about this! Good to hear it from him. This is something that Mittens would never say. Its about power not saving anything—save Democrats and their stranglehold on the public treasury.
Finally, a politician who will speak honestly and intelligently about global warming fraud. It sure beats Newt sitting on the love seat with Nancy Pelosi to make TV ads promoting Al Gore’s scheme to take billions of dollars from taxpayers.
So refreshing! The left used the American people’s gullibility to sell snake oil to us. Newt was a part of the bull poop.
Here is what's coming to the USA, look out, they are after your uterus.
Are you ignorant? OR do you just knowing lie about Newt?
Gingrich position on Energy
Gingrich thinks that the Kyoto treaty is bad for the nation and the environment.
He would give incentives for renewable resources and conservation.
He would end the ‘scare tactics’ and drill in Alaska.
He supports eliminating the gas tax.
Uhhh I didn’t mean you directly dude. I said “people who hate Santorum”. But okay...
To pick a limited candidate who is a proven moderate, big government insider (Santorum) and who is also viewed by the average American as a radical Social Conservative with an agenda to cram his narrow social agenda down moderate America's throats. And who also, has no clear plan or even original ideas on how to fix the real problems we all face. Instead, he projects inconsequential Social issues.
Rush is playing Santorum clips on this issue. Santorum nails it.
I heard a clip of that and really liked it. Santorum needs to do more of this. He sounded good.
Exactly. People offended don’t like it because Santorum was right.
It is hard to speak about the foolishness of an issue like global warming if you have participated in pushing the notion.
Straight to the point, no wiggle room to say I was misquoted.
This is not the time to point out to the electorate that Global warming is a scam. We already know that. Especially “educating” the base, about something they already are aware of. Or making the issues about Abortion Gay marriage and the Biblical role of women.
Dude, this is why Santorum will lose to Obama in a landslide. He is boxing himself into a corner that the MSM will handily use against him, and it will have a devastating effect.
