Sen. John Sununu (R-NH) shared his remarkable views on climate and clean energy on Glenn Beck’s radio show:
BECK: All right. Talk to me a little bit about oil. Are you a global warming guy?
SUNUNU: Drill here, drill now.
He then launches into an anti-clean-energy rant (click here). Sununu has long been a global warming inactivist. But now that he is in the fight for his political life, Sununu says what he really believes to Beck while greenwashing his record in a public debate when the general public is listening (much as another Senator does recently, see “The greenwasher from Arizona has a record as dirty as the denier from Oklahoma“):
SUNUNU: I cosponsored legislation this past year with Tom Carper, bipartisan legislation, that would set restrictions not just on pollutants like mercury or sulfur or NOx, which causes ozone, but also limits on CO2 emissions. … I voted to move the climate change legislation forward on the Senate floor, because I think this is an important issue. [...]
QUESTION: Would you consider it a priority for you, global warming?
SUNUNU: Well a priority enough that I was the lead Republican on the piece of legislation that I cosponsored with Tom Carper.
