US Presidential Candidate Santorum Denies Global Warming [Video]

Rick Santorum

Wow, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, in an interview with Glenn Beck, has flat-out denied the existence of global warming. Previously, Santorum has also told Rush Limbaugh that global warming is “junk science”.

As you can see in the video below, Beck obviously enjoyed the interview experience. The crucial part of the interview went like this:

Beck: Oil?

Santorum: Drill. Everywhere.

Beck: Coal?

Santorum: Absolutely. Natural gas. We have huge stores. 263 years of oil at the current rate, almost 200 years of gas, and 300 years of coal.

Beck: What about global warming?

Santorum: There is no such thing as global warming. It is, in my opinion, there are hundreds of factors that cause the earth to warm and cool, and the trace gas, of which human participation in this trace gas is…

Wow, I sure hope this isn’t the future of the U.S. Mind you, the Obama Administration seems to be doing a pretty good job of encouraging the drilling for oil everywhere himself. The Obama Administration is expanding oil drilling in Alaska, and planning to drill for more In the Gulf.

As reported here, Al Gore has also recently criticized Obama for being unable to “present to the American people the magnitude of the climate crisis” or provide “a presidential venue for the scientific community… to bring the reality of science before the public.”

But this, this is on a whole other level.
