Obama and Romney Tackle 14 Top Science Questions
President Barack Obama, on climate change:
Climate change is the one of the biggest issues of this generation, and we have to meet this challenge by driving smart policies that lead to greater growth in clean energy generation and result in a range of economic and social benefits.
Mitt Romney, on “climate change”:
However, there remains a lack of scientific consensus on the issue — on the extent of the warming, the extent of the human contribution, and the severity of the risk — and I believe we must support continued debate and investigation within the scientific community.
Translation: President Obama wants to fix the climate, and Mitt wants to talk about the climate.
