Two years ago, the Tea Party shock jock Glenn Beck mocked the idea of carbon dioxide pollution, exhaling and pronouncing, “Look at how much pollution I just put out.” Last Friday, former Massachusetts governor and Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney joined Beck’s anti-science crusade, confusing the burning of fossil fuels with human respiration. “Now I know there is also a movement to say that carbon dioxide should be guided or should be managed by the Environmental Protection Agency. I disagree with that,” he said at a Manchester, New Hampshire event, furthering his descent into denial. “I exhale carbon dioxide,” he continued. “I don’t want those guys following me around with a meter to see if I’m breathing too hard.”
