Mitt Romney said Wednesday night that he believes in global warming and that humans contribute to it.
“I’m one of those Republicans who thinks we are getting warmer and that we contribute to that,” said Romney at an investment management conference.
Romney added, “On both sides of the aisle, we just haven’t been able to take on and try and make progress on the major issues of the day.”
This is not the first time Romney has voiced his believe in man-made global warming. In his 2010 book he said, “Human activity is a contributing factor.”
Romney also discussed the need to combat income inequality.
“Let’s deal with poverty. Have done it? No. Let’s do it,” said Romney.
Romney is presently said to be considering a possible third run for the Republican presidential nomination.
