Romney: Carbon isn’t a pollutant, not exactly, not quite
In New Hampshire, to an audience question about the EPA, Romney tries yet again to have it both ways but to move away from his own former stance about greenhouse gases:
“Do I support the EPA? In much of its mission yes, but in some of its mission no. The EPA getting into carbon footprints, and… [APPLAUSE] I think we may have made a mistake, we have made a mistake is what I believe, in saying that the EPA should regulate carbon emissions. I don’t think that was the intent of the original legislation, and I don’t think carbon is a pollutant in the sense of harming our bodies.”
In the sense of harming our bodies? So what does that mean, Mitt? That is truly some new height of weasel.
