Mitt Romney was once a believer that the human race may be contributing to climate change. He quickly changed his position when it was politically beneficial to him and he became an opponent of his previous position. Now, he’s even questioning the Federal Government’s role in providing help to victims of natural disasters.
President Obama on the other hand has made his position known about climate change, and much of his policies including his push for clean energy reflects that belief. During his acceptance speech at the Republican National Conference, Mitt Romney chose his time in the spotlight to joke about Mr. Obama’s climate change belief. Stepping to the podium to deliver his speech, Romney claimed that “president Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans, and to heal the planet.” Romney then said, “my promise is to help you and your family.”
Maybe Romney should stop lying to the American people about helping our families, and realize that the planet demands our immediate attention. President Obama is paying attention and his policies reflect the need to invest more in clean energy. And after the recent hurricane Sandy that hit the east coast, we can see once again, that President Obama’s approach is right.
