Is Cognitive Dissonance Fueling Conservative Denial of Climate Change?by Rania Khalek
“I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that,” were the words of GOP Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney in front of about 200 people at a town hall meeting in Manchester, New Hampshire. The former Massachusetts Governor went on to say, “It’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors.”

Romney’s statement wasn’t radical or controversial in least bit. So why did the right freak out and declare Romney’s statement to be “political suicide”?
