Scratching at the tip of the ice burg...... The reporting on presidential campaigning is crud....this report is better than most.... a bit less "gottcha" than many reports.

I find it hard not to be cynical about news when it does not give any background.....what do climate scientist report... if climate change is real ...and caused by humans ...what are some of the consequences of equivocating....

Great to have a fair comment based on fact.

It is sad if Mitt's comments are based on political expediency. Perhaps they are based on conviction. Good to see he doesn't think that cap and trade is of much use. Perhaps someone should explain to him Tax and Dividend by Jim Hansen. Besides being very likely to be effective, it would be a real vote winner. That would really put the cat amongst the pigeons. Best , too, if he realizes that you don't have to invoke climate change to justify getting off fossil fuels
