The Relative Comment

Newt “believes” in the “environment”

leave a comment »

Apparently while being “pressed” by Glenn Beck on the issue of climate change, Presidential Candidate and wonky-self-serving-prognosticator Newt Gingrich said this:

“First, I believe in the environment in general,” Gingrich said. “Second, I think there is evidence on both sides of the climate change argument.”

What does that even mean, Newt? Are you saying you believe the environment exists in the way someone would say, “I do believe in God…in general…you know, just not in like, GOD god.”

Or that you “believe in” the environment, as you might believe in your family (probably not counting ex-wives), i.e. you believe the environment could do anything it sets its mind to?

I’m thinking this is a key distinction, worth parsing. Also, to your second point, you’re totally wrong.
