Kasich Befuddles The Public Over Stance On Global Warming



he told NBC News Sunday he didn’t want to “destroy people’s jobs based on some theory that’s not proven.”


Kasich told NBC’s Chuck Todd he believes humans have an impact on the environment, but cautioned against punitive regulations that could cripple the economy and kill jobs.


“Well, I think that man absolutely affects the environment. But as to whether, you know, what the impact is, the overall impact, I think that’s a legitimate debate.” Kasich said, touting his state’s environmental record. “So of course we have to be sensitive to it. But we don’t want to destroy people’s jobs based on some theory that’s not proven.”

“He believes it is real and that humans play a significant factor and we need to do something about it,” a Kasich campaign spokesman told Politico in an emailed response, regarding the governor’s position on man-made global warming.


Kasich’s campaign also pointed Politico to other recent interviews where the governor talked about global warming without questioning the science.

“I am a believer—my goodness, I am a Republican—I happen to believe there is a problem with climate change,” Kaisich said in 2012. “I don’t want to overreact to it, I can’t measure it all, but I respect the creation that the Lord has given us, and I want to make sure we protect it.”

Yes, GOP Pres. Candidate John Kasich Believes in Climate Change — But would NOT propose legislation

Kasich admits the environment “needs to be taken care of,” but quickly cautions that “it shouldn’t be worshipped,” calling that “pantheism.” And he goes on to say “the Pope saying we need to take care of the environment is good,” but again, makes a caveat, saying “I don’t agree with his conclusion that all of it is bad because of free enterprise because it’s lifted people out of poverty and he cares about the poor and so do I. So, I mean a nice warning about people to think about the environment.”
