Mitt Romney on Wednesday got a big thumbs up for his stance on global warming from a source that likely won’t help him at all in the GOP primary: Al Gore.
The former vice president and Nobel Prize winner praised Romney for not heeding right-wing calls to reject the science behind climate change.
“Good for Mitt Romney — though we’ve long passed the point where weak lip-service is enough on the Climate Crisis,” Gore wrote on his blog. “While other Republicans are running from the truth, he is sticking to his guns in the face of the anti-science wing of the Republican Party.”
