Mitt Romney reiterated his lukewarm belief in anthropogenic global warming at a December 17, 2011 town hall meeting at the Horry-Georgetown Technical College Grand Stand Campus in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
“I am not a scientist. I have not built a model of how the environment, the earth works,” Romney said, according to ABC News. “I think the Earth is getting warmer. I may be wrong. Number two, I think we contribute to that. Number three, I don’t know how much we contribute to that.”
The former Massachusetts Governor also chided fellow 2012 Republican presidential candidate and one time House Speaker Newt Gingrich for appearing alongside Nancy Pelosi in a 2008 television ad sponsored by Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection.
