Rudy Giuliani





Up until recently, Republicans have been associated with turning their heads and smoothly changing the subject whenever issues of Global Warming has come up. Rudolph Giuliani may be one of the first Republican candidates in the upcoming presidential election who takes a stand and speaks publicly on global warming issues. Giuliani says that he “definitely” believes in global warming, and continually praises Governor Schwarzenegger for being so progressive on the subject of global warming. According to a California newspaper, Giuliani was quoted on the topic of global warming saying "The big question has always been how much of it is happening because of natural climate changes and how much of it is happening because of human intervention.'' In the same article he bashes Al Gore for not “recommending solutions”. I searched and I searched and I still have yet to find a single published article, website, or journal where Giuliani offers up solutions for Global Warming. Maybe he is right in that Gore should be more explicit in saying what should be done about the issue, but Giuliani, while continually stating what a great job Schwarzenegger is doing on the subject of global warming, has yet to offer up any solutions himself. Because Republicans have typically avoided the subject of Global Warming all together until recently, it is a good thing that the former NYC Mayor is even giving thought to the subject publicly at all. Even by seeing what little Giuliani has to say on the matter is good news because it means that global warming and environmental issues all together are no longer predominantly democratic issues, but republican issues also.

Overall, Giuliani gets a C. Think back to high school—a C is average. You put in the right amount of effort, you said the right things, but it’s not quite A quality. He addresses the fact that global warming does in fact exist, but he doesn’t offer solutions or really state what a prevalent issue it has become. So Giuliani, sorry, but you’re average.

Check out these websites. The first is the article that I mentioned a lot from the California newspaper, and the second is a publication that gives all the important candidates positions on global warming. Interestingly enough, not much is to be said for Giuliani…
