What I found most interesting were the words of putative front-runner Rick Perry. NPR first ran a clip in which Perry said, “Scientists are coming forward and questioning the original idea that manmade global warming is what is causing the climate to change.”
Next was this clip from the candidate (Perry tripped up when getting the sentence out, which accounts for the words in brackets. You can listen to the statement for yourself.):
I don’t think, from my perspective, that I want America to be engaged in spending that much money on [a still] scientific theory that has not been proven and from my perspective is being put more and more into question.
