Hitting McCain on Global Warming

Mitt Romney issued a press release today hitting McCain on his support for measures to combat global warming. It's clearly in response to McCain's comments yesterday at a campaign event with Arnold Schwarzenegger in California. McCain attacked President Bush on climate change, saying that he viewed "the administration's record on global warming as terrible."

Romney, in his press release, countered:
"Unfortunately, some in the Republican Party are embracing the radical environmental ideas of the liberal left. As governor, I found that thoughtful environmentalism need not be anti-growth and anti-jobs. But Kyoto-style sweeping mandates, imposed unilaterally in the United States, would kill jobs, depress growth and shift manufacturing to the dirtiest developing nations.

"Republicans should never abandon pro-growth conservative principles in an effort to embrace the ideas of Al Gore. Instead of sweeping mandates, we must use America's power of innovation to develop alternative sources of energy and new technologies that use energy more efficiently."
