Huntsman Has a New Position on Global Warming

by Greg Pollowitz

Jon “I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming” Huntsman now thinks the science is less than settled. Via Grist:

At an oil-sponsored event at the Heritage Foundation, presidential candidate Jon Huntsman reversed his prior defense of climate science. Huntsman, who famously mocked his fellow candidates for questioning global warming in August, was asked by NewsBusters blogger Lachlan Markey if humans contribute to climate change. Huntsman said that the “scientific community owes us more”:

I don’t know, I’m not a scientist, nor am I a physicist, but I would defer to science. . . . The scientific community owes us more in terms of a better description or explanation about what might lie beneath all of this. But there’s not information right now to formulate policies in terms of addressing it overall, primarily because it’s a global issue.

“Call me crazy,” but I think this is a flip-flop.
