The Greening of Gingrich

In a heavily hyped debate – one that environmentalist Democrats hoped would be a “smack down” on Republicans — former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich disappointed them and conservatives alike when he declared that human activity was causing the Earth to warm. The concession was made in a debate on global warming with Sen. John Kerry (D.-Mass.) today on Capitol Hill that was sponsored by the Brookings Institution and the RAND Corporation.
