Mitt Romney: Humans have Contributed to Climate Change
Breaking with his party loyalists on Friday in Manchester, New Hampshire, Mitt Romney spoke the words that environmentalists throughout the world praised, but that his own party denounced. While speaking at a town hall meeting, Romney stated, “I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that.”
I don't understand why people make statements such as this, because I do not believe that climate change is, or should ever be, a partisan issue. This is a global issue, not a Republican or Democrat issue. This is an issue that is of great importance to countries throughout the world. We are all affected by the actions of our predecessors and ourselves.
The fact that we, as Americans, invest so much time and money into making sure we all remain safely on our "sides" of the political aisle, rather than deal with monumental issues such as climate change truly speaks to our character.
I am a Democrat, but I applaud Mitt Romney for placing himself in the political crosshairs of his own party and speaking out about this very important issue.
