Romney Bucks the Trend March 17, 2010 : 12:07 PM

Last week I wrote about the disappointing litmus test being foisted upon GOP candidates. In his new book, Mitt Romney bucks the trend, writing:

ā€œI believe that climate change is occurring ā€” the reduction in the size of global ice caps is hard to ignore. I also believe that human activity is a contributing factor.ā€

We can have disagreements about the solutions to this crisis, but we need to acknowledge fundamental truths. The science proving the existence of the climate crisis is not in question. That is where our debates about policy need to begin.
