Santorum: Global Warming 'Not Scientifically Proven'

Following his comments on Saturday that President Obama’s policies are based on a “phony theology,” Rick Santorum said on Sunday that he was referencing Obama's capitulation to environmentalists on issues like global warning, which he said were “not scientifically proven.”

Speaking on CBS' Face the Nation, Santorum expressed his view that man should be "good stewards" of the Earth—but not necessarily serve the Earth.

 

"Man is here to use the resources and use them wisely, to care for the Earth, to be a steward of the Earth," he said. "We're not here to serve the Earth. The Earth is not the objective. Man is the objective."

Santorum added that the debate over global warming is problematic because it is "not scientifically proven," and "when you have a world view that elevates the Earth above man," you allow for government overreach.

"This is all an attempt to, you know, to centralize power and give more power to the government," he said.
