Huntsman: “I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy”
Jon Huntsman has found himself a niche as Rick Perry’s science critic in chief.
A few hours after video hit the airwaves of Perry telling a young boy in New Hampshire that evolution was a “theory that’s out there,” his GOP presidential rival pounced.
“To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy,” Huntsman wrote on Twitter.
Perry has made several controversial comments related to science over the last two days in New Hampshire.
On Wednesday, Perry said climate change was a hoax cooked up by scientists who have a financial interest in keeping the issue alive.
