So if there was still any doubt, now we know what Mitt Romney and the Republicans think about climate change.
President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans — pauses for audience laughter, which he gets — and to heal the planet. MY promise is to help you and your family.
He might want to talk to those families who are currently getting hit by one of the worst droughts in US history.
But I keep wondering whether a Romney presidency might actually be better for the UN climate negotiations than Obama. With Romney, everyone would know not to expect anything from the US. While with Obama everyone keeps hoping that some major things might happen after all. Which ignores how deeply gridlocked the US domestic situation is.
