Flip-flop-flip. That’s the sound of Newt Gingrich on global warming BS (and a whole lot of other issues, like Obamacare).
Despite telling FOX News’ Bill O’Reilly that the global warming PSA he (Gingrich) did with then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was “one of the dumbest things I’ve done in recent years,” Gingrich will go back to endorsing the “climate change” BS . . . after the 2012 Presidential election. Timing is everything, and Gingrich will release his latest global warming book–a sequel to his 2007 “A Contract With the Earth”–when he no longer has to face voter scrutiny. Here are the details–sound like a conservative to you?:
Gingrich and Terry L. Maple have something of a sequel in the works to their 2007 book, “A Contract with The Earth,” tentatively titled “Environmental Entrepreneurs.” . . .
The new book is a collection of essays by various businesspeople and scientists to be edited and stitched together by Gingrich and, mostly, Maple, a former chief executive of the Palm Beach Zoo.
The author of a chapter on climate change is Katharine Hayhoe, an atmospheric scientist at Texas Tech whose work focuses on assessing the impact of climate change and communicating it to broader audiences, including those traditionally dubious of global warming, like Christian colleges.
Yup, let’s pimp the right on global warming, right? That’s the Newt philosophy.
The book “requires a good opening chapter that lays out the facts on global climate change . . .” Maple said in an email to Hayhoe in October 2007. “All that is needed from you is to provide a sense of what needs to happen. What is the window of opportunity and what does the science tell us about our chances for remediation?”
Like most climatologists, Hayhoe accepts the broad scientific consensus that the climate is changing and that humanity’s combustion of fossil fuels is the main reason for it.
Yay! Let’s see how this sells in Detroit and everywhere else where that bad ole’ human combustin’ is goin’ on.
At this pace, Maple said, his new book with Gingrich would probably be out in 2013, after the presidential election.
Like I said, timing is everything. One day, Newt’s pimping you on global warming, the next day he’s saying he made a mistake, when behind the scenes he’s editing a book promoting his initial global warming BS. Not in the White House or even with the nomination yet, and already he’s selling us out.
Hmmm . . . maybe Al Sharpton and the environmentalists can trust Newt Gingrich. We can’t.
