Candidate Pawlenty on Climate Change: 'The Science Is Bad'
28 June 2011 4:46 pm
Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty has had a well-documented change of heart on climate change science. Today on the Fox and Friends morning show, the former Minnesota governor reiterated his shift from supporter to skeptic and took it one step further, saying the "science is bad."
A partial transcript after the jump.
Liberal blog ThinkProgress transcribed Pawlenty's comments:
PAWLENTY: I denounced it for a variety of reasons, one of which is the science is bad and it's in great dispute… I'm old enough to remember when people were predicting there was going to be the next ice age. Until recently people were worried as much about global cooling. There is climate change but the reality is the science indicates most of it, if not all of it, is caused by natural causes. And as to the potential human contribution to that, there's a great scientific dispute about that very issue.
