Jon Huntsman on Global Warming

Huntsman tweets:

To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.

Which reminded me of the Simpsons episode where Homer is stuck on the monorail:

Marge : There’s a man here who says he can help you.

Homer : Is it Batman?

Marge : He’s a scientist.

Homer : Batman’s a scientist.

Marge : It’s not Batman!

Ramesh, rightly points out on Twitter:

Does Huntsman “trust scientists” on what the policy response to global warming should be? B/c that seems problematic.

With a follow up RT:

RT @Timodc He’s expressed the same view throughout campaign. Trusts scientists but we shouldnt be doing anything that will stifle growth

So we should trust the alarmist scientific community about stopping our use of oil, but not do anything that will cut our oil use as that would stifle growth? I guess this is why politicians get paid the big bucks.
