What Happened To The Republican Consensus On Climate Change?

In May right-wing activist Marc Morano said Republican candidates "can believe in the science of global warming ... if you keep your mouth shut about it and you advocate no quote-unquote solution to the problem."

In the process, Giuliani warped the facts of recent investigations -- and numerous statements he has made in the past about terrorists, courts and the rule of law contradict his criticisms.
