Romney silent on climate change

Romney silent on climate change

(1:05) When a heckler interrupted Mitt Romney calling "What about climate, that's what caused this monster storm...", he was shouted down and removed. As was the person who raised a banner that read "End Climate Silence".

What do you know? a hall full of idiots who chant 'U.S.A.' over and over instead of thinking about the issue raised. Clearly, they weren't affected by Sandy any more than Romney was, either financially, physically or emotionally. Republican head-up-the ass attitude.

The method the person used to make his point was inappropriate. This was a speech being given by a Presidential candidate and the forum was not open for questions at that time. The person was being disruptive so he had to be removed from the audience. Do you believe he should have been allowed to stay and disrupt the rest of the conversation that was going on? What about all the other people that were there to listen to what their candidate had to say? In America, we have freedom of speech; however, we do not have the freedom to barge into private or public venues and become a nuisance. If I were at a football game and I ran out into the field during half time with a banner saying anything, I'd be arrested. This has nothing to do with his particular question as much as it has to do with the inappropriateness of the delivery.

The reaction of the audience to chant what they did is meaningless. If Romney had dropped his pants and put a bucket over his head, they would likely have done the same. It has become a nonsensical default setting for groups of Americans who are scared, confused, happy, proud, or angry and it just makes them look silly.

I can agree that chanting USA was meaningless and took time away from his speech. I just wanted to go down on record for agreeing that removing the disruptive person was appropriate.

Removing the disruptive person was what you'd expect, from whichever party. It was that Romney said nothing about climate change afterwards that is the problem. Considering the seriousness of climate change, and how it relates to Hurricane Sandy, he should have said something. But he didn't because he doesn't know what to say, just as when he was asked 14 times about eliminating FEMA.

10 years from now when we are all freezing our backsides off....All you global warming disciples are gonna hanging your heads in shame for being persuaded by bull crap science that it was gonna happen. It is NOT happening and is NOT going to happen...we are in a cooling cycle, and it's gonna get a hell of a lot cooler before it warms up again...THE SUN drives our weather, Has done forever and will do forever. Humans have nothing to do with it.. Too bad you won't realize it until our governments have bled us dry to pay for their bogus money making schemes.

So mankind burns countless tons of fossil fuel, releasing into the atmosphere vast amounts of carbon dioxide (a proven greenhouse gas) which had been safely locked away underground for millenia. All this happens in a hundred or so years and you still don't make the connection with receding polar icecaps? You are a nincompoop of the first water.

Right. The amount of greenhouse gas we produce is small in comparison to what all the non-human animals on the world produce and other effects like volcanoes.

Romney will do more than ignore the climate once elected. NYC will see a 28 foot storm surge before this century is over.
