“The minute that the Republican Party becomes the party — the anti-science party, we have a huge problem. We lose a whole lot of people who would otherwise allow us to win the election in 2012. When we take a position that isn’t willing to embrace evolution, when we take a position that basically runs counter to what 98 of 100 climate scientists have said… about what is causing climate change and man’s contribution to it, I think we find ourselves on the wrong side of science, and, therefore, in a losing position.”

  • Context: In this ABC interview, Jon Huntsman talks about the 2012 presidential campaign, his fellow candidates, and the current state of the Republican Party. Jon Huntsman describes the United States as a “center-right” country and describes himself as being a “center-right” politician. He is very critical of the extreme and anti-science stances that seem to be prevalent amongst many conservatives.
