    According to the Mother Nature Network, if Mitt Romney were to be the Republican candidate, in the area of climate change Romney appears to be waffling on the science behind it and  he has no problem advocating pro-climate initiatives with an economic benefit. Case in point: During a 2007 debate in Des Moines, Romney said, “Confronting climate change is going to help our economy because we’re going to invest in new technologies to get ourselves off of foreign oil, and as we get ourselves off of foreign oil, we also dramatically reduce our CO2 emissions. That’s good for the environment; it’s also good for our economy. Because $300 [billion] to $400 billion worth of oil a year from other people who use it against us, that’s bad for our economy; it’s also bad for the environment.”
