Toomey Disputes Man-Made Climate Change, Sounds Reasonable

More evidence that it pays to be a boring, hard-right candidate in an election season that contains Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell and Ken Buck, courtesy of The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent:

Case in point: Pennsylvania Senate candidate Pat Toomey. In a local radio interview on Friday, Toomey said the degree to which human activity is to blame for global warming is being “very much disputed” and “debated.” [...]

Right, but who, exactly, is doing the disputing and the debating here?

Toomey’s claim isn’t as out there as some Tea Partyers who say flatly that there’s no proof whatsoever that human activity has caused global warming. Toomey at least allows that this topic is up for debate. But Toomey’s claim that this is “very much disputed” is sharply at odds with scientific consensus, which holds that human activity is primarily responsible for global warming.

There was once a time when Toomey, a national figure on the verge of attaining a Senate seat, might grab headlines — of the sort he wouldn’t like — for promoting a view of climate science that is outside the mainstream of even the Republican Party. Now, however, by allowing for the idea of “debate” on the previously settled issue of a man-made role in climate change, he sounds downright reasonable compared to Angle’s assertion that global warming is a “mantra of the left” with no basis in “sound science.”
