Giuliani on Global Warming

Or is it now called "Climate Change" to encompass both cooling and warming, whichever cycle we find ourselves in?

From ballotbox2008.com, Where the Republicans Stand: Global Warming:
[Giuliani] said that he does believe that global warming is happening and that, "The big question has always been how much of it is happening because of natural climate changes and how much of it is happening because of human intervention." He has made clear that: "the overwhelming number of scientists now believe that there is significant human cause. He also has mentioned that the issue shouldn't be an issue simply because we should be dealing with pollution anyway.

Giuliani has praised the Republican Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, for his environmental leadership, but stressed that he hasn't taken a look at the details of California's law to reduce emissions by 2010. "I generally agree with Gov. Schwarzenegger,'' he said. "He's a good friend and a progressive leader.'

You're talking about a lot of regulation and lot of resources confiscated (and you guys were shocked when Hilary wanted to confiscate oil profits). Y'all still want to elect this guy?

Yeah, what is up with this stuff. Newt came out big for global warming as well. However, we need to look through the politics on this stuff.

I think it is a good strategy politically to say you are concerned about global warming -even say that you believe in it, while at the same time promising not to regulate the economy in any meaningful way (as Newt did). In this way you can make sure the segment of the population - the Left's useful idiots - who are independent and have been swayed by the media on global warming will be satisfied. It's sad, but true.

Whether Guiliani supports world government or regulation for global warming is still unclear. However, if he believes that we need to regulate to fight global warming, I cannot support him.

I'm mildly curious: is there an issue on which Giuliani is good? (Don't say judges. We can't elect a president ONLY on the judge matter. Besides, look at Giuliani's Civil Liberties rating. You want that in a judge?)
