On Wednesday, Republican Presidential candidate/executioner extraordinaire Rick Perry told New Hampshire voters he does not believe in global warming. He made his comment at a breakfast in response to a question by someone who cited evidence from the National Academy of Sciences.

Perry’s home state of Texas releases more heat-trapping carbon dioxide than any other state in the country.

Meanwhile, some of Perry’s fellow nomination-seekers are not wholly unreasonable. Matt Romney and Jon Huntsman acknowledge the scientific evidence of global warming, even if they do not campaign on a platform of curbing it.

At the same breakfast, Perry stated the Federal Reserve would be committing a treasonous act to put more money into the United States economy, and he said he would not have signed the debt-ceiling compromise that avoided a national default.
