is Newt Gingrich a flip-flopping liar?

This ad which ran in early 2008 is part of the “We Can Solve It” global warming ad campaign sponsored by former Vice President Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection. Gingrich has spent a lot of time trying to explain why he participated in this ad campaign.
