Pawlenty's Record - WSJ.comIn April, Mr. Pawlenty delivered the remarks that probably best reveal his views on the environment. "It looks like we should have listened to President Carter," he told the Minnesota Climate Change Advisory Group. "He called us to action, and we should have listened. . . . Climate change is real. Human behavior is partly and may be a lot responsible. Those who don't think so are simply not right. We should not spend time on voices that say it's not real."
Pawlenty won't make it, he's too progressive, and the GOP base won't pick a guy that says "we should have listened to Carter".
