Has Santorum covered all his right-wing talking points on global warming? Let check:

  • The Earth gets warmer, the Earth gets cooler – history points out that it does that (Climate cycles!)
  • CO2 is a trace gas (Really? Who knew?)
  • There are many natural forcings to climate: El Nino, La Nina, sunspots, moisture in the air (though to be sure, Santorum didn’t use that fancy, schmancy phrase natural forcings)
  • It’s an opportunity for the left to control your life (By God, we’ll control them through climate change! Quick! Gas up the black helicopters!)
  • Climate science is junk science (Spoken like a true junk science aficionado)

Yep, it’s pretty much all there. Rick Santorum for president! Take that, Mitt Romney.
