Dedicated to the balanced discussion of global warming
This is a continuation of my occasional series on the candidates for the next President of the United States of America. This article will focus on Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City. My source for this post is OnTheIssues which is an excellent source of information on political candidates. The authors of this article compiled various quotes from Mr. Giuliani over the years. I will only quote a few here and encourage you to click through to the original to read other quotes on the subject.
Q: If we sign Kyoto, wouldn’t then a lot of factories and jobs and investments just move offshore to China and India?
A: They would move offshore to China and India and it would have no impact on global warming. Whatever your scientific conclusion about global warming, whether it’s manmade or it isn’t or whatever, the reality is that if you don’t have restrictions on China, if you don’t have restrictions on India, our contribution, ultimately, is going to be minor. We could put all these restrictions on ourselves and have just as much arguable global warming if China, India, some of these other countries that are going to be contributing a lot more to this don’t become part of some kind of system to create alternatives.
We should get serious about why we haven’t licensed a new nuclear power plant in 30 years because people are afraid of nuclear power. I do security work for nuclear power. Nuclear power is dangerous, so is every other form of power, but nobody’s died from nuclear power. China is building 40 nuclear power plants. India just made a deal, so they can build nuclear power plants.
