Mitt Romney: Humans contribute to global warming

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney broke with many in his party on Friday when he said he believes humans have contributed to global warming.

“I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that,” said at a New Hampshire town hall meeting, according to Reuters.

There is widespread consensus within the scientific community that the earth warming and that human beings are at least partially responsible. But many Republicans dispute that conclusion, including Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, the top Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

Inhofe has suggested that global warming is a hoax that “started in the United Nations and the ones in the United States who really grab a hold of this is the Hollywood elite.”
