Elaine Marshall a Global Warming Skeptic?

Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, a Democrat, hopes to challenge Republican Sen. Richard Burr next year. Am I reading too much into this comment, per the Asheville Citizen-Times? Is Marshall a global warming skeptic? Her comment gives me hope that she hasn’t signed on to the myth that the science of climate change is settled.From the Asheville paper:

With climate change, Marshall said she didn’t know enough to comment about bill introduced by Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to cut carbon emissions by 20 percent by 2050.

Climate change was something to which the government should pay attention, but it might be too early to take large steps, she said.

“We have got to have good sound science before we start spending money,” she said.
