Environmentalists Seek to Paint Buck as Inconsistent on Climate Change Stance

Environmentalists slammed Ken Buck, the Republican running for Senate in Colorado, today for “Buck-pedaling” on his stance on climate change, painting the candidate as inconsistent on the issue.

Buck suggested earlier this week that he agrees with Sen. James Inhofe’s (R-Okla.) view that global warming is a hoax, telling a supporters in Colorado, “Sen. Inhofe was the first person to stand up and say this global warming is the greatest hoax that has been perpetrated. The evidence just keeps supporting his view, and more and more people’s view, of what’s going on.” Buck, who is in a tight race with Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), has since revised those remarks.

Responding to Buck’s comments, League of Conservation Voters Senior Vice President for Public Affairs Tony Massaro told reporters today on a conference call that the candidate was “backpedaling, or Buck-pedaling,” from his climate positions. “We actually don’t know where he stands because he seems to stand in multiple places at one time depending on who he talks to,” Massaro said. “This is not a person who has consistent values and therefore doesn’t have any values.”

I called Buck’s campaign office got clarification on his position. Owen Loftis, Buck’s spokesperson said, “Ken believes climate change is occurring, but that it’s natural more than man-made.”

Buck has emerged as a top target for environmentalists as the midterm elections approach. Yesterday, the League of Conservation Voters released a web video criticizing him and the environmental group released a television ad targeting him today.
