Earlier this week, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum dropped in on Rush Limbaugh's show and shared his belief that global warming is (of course) a liberal plot: "[T]he idea that man ... is somehow responsible for climate change is ... patently absurd. To me this is ... really a beautifully concocted scheme, because they know that the earth is gonna cool and warm. It's been on a warming trend so they said, 'Oh, let's take advantage of that and say that we need the government to come in and regulate your life some more because it's getting warmer.'"
