Back in 2008, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich caught a lot of heat for participating in Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection advertising campaign in a TV commercial with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. He has since defended his decision to make the commercials.
However, nearly two years later with Democrats in control of Congress and the White House and moving aggressively on climate change legislation with draconian regulations on carbon emissions, Gingrich still maintains conservatives should have a voice in the debate. Speaking to a group of bloggers at the Heritage Foundation on April 13, Gingrich contended there’s still a need for a so-called green conservatism. I will have nothing to do with Gingrich and his Progressive Agenda. He is no better than the last four Presidents!
