When a man presses the White House contender on whether the issue "is a joke" to him, Romney says, "As a matter of fact, if you'd like to, I know you're filming, if you'd like to see my view on global warming, I wrote a book, and there's a chapter on global warming and you'll see what I think we can do to deal with it."
As Romney makes his way through a crowd, the exchange ends with Romney being asked, "What are you going to do to address global warming?"
As for the book referenced by Romney, the presidential candidate was presumably referring to No Apology, which was released in 2010. In the book, he writes:
It's impossible not to take a look at our current energy policies without considering the question of climate change. I believe that climate change is occurring -- the reduction in the size of global ice caps is hard to ignore. I also believe that human activity is a contributing factor.
I am uncertain how much of the warming, however, is attributable to man and how much is attributable to factors out of our control. I do not support radical feel-good policies like a unilateral U.S. cap-and-trade mandate. Such policies would have little effect on the climate but could cripple economic growth with devastating results for people across the planet...
