The Rick Santorum campaign released a press statement on February 21 espousing Mitt Romney’s stance on climate change:

Mitt Romney, “I concur that climate change is beginning to affect our

natural resources and that now is the time to take action toward climate

protection.”

Mitt Romney, “I am convinced it’s good for business.”

Verona, PA – Radical environmentalists have made a living by scaring

people with the junk science of climate change.  Barack Obama has been

the Cap-and-Taxer In Chief, imposing onerous regulation after onerous

regulation on American industry while claiming to want to rebuild

America’s manufacturing base.  Likewise, Mitt Romney has fallen prey to

the rhetoric of the environmental left and, while serving as Governor,

imposed statewide cap-and-tax regulations on the Commonwealth of

Massachusetts.

Hogan Gidley, National Communications Director, said: “Government

healthcare mandates, the big bank bailout and governmental takeover of

religious freedoms are just a few of the issues where Mitt Romney has

joined Barack Obama. And now we find out that radical environmentalism

is no different. Governor Romney actually bought into and even supported

the radical environmentalist’s movement to pass job crushing cap and tax

legislation. Studies show that if Mitt Romney had his way, and his

legislation would’ve been passed nationwide – for Michigan – as many as

90,800 jobs would’ve been lost.

Rick Santorum has never bought into the radical left’s junk science, and

has instead stood by the revolutionary American doctrine based on free

people and free markets.  Rick Santorum has stood up for opening the

tundra of the North Slope of Alaska for drilling, exploring for natural

gas, and expediting the approval of the Keystone Pipeline.  The memory

of his coal-mining grandfather instilled in him the ideal that America

can use its bare hands to dig for greatness, and he firmly believes that

our industrial base can be great again.”
