A conservative columnist recently wrote that Jon Huntsman is not doing well in the GOP nomination battle because of failing to deny science like the other candidates. It looks like Huntsman is taking his advice to reject science and fit in better with conservative voters:
GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman shifted his position on global warming Tuesday, telling a conservative audience that there is “not enough information right now” on the issue to formulate policies.
In August, Huntsman drew attention and criticism from the right for tweeting that he believed scientists’ claims on global warming.
“To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy,” Huntsman wrote at the time.
But speaking at the Heritage Foundation, Huntsman veered to the right of his former position.
I wonder how long it will be before Huntsman speaks at the Discovery Institute and says he believes that evolution is only a theory and backs intelligent design as a valid alternative.
