Palin urges Obama to forgo Copenhagen visit
While religious climate elitists gather in Copenhagen worrying about "global warming" as they contribute to it by jetting in on their multiple carbon spewing planes and whisked around the city and the European continent on their numerous carbon spewing limousines, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) calmly sets forth the facts in an editorial in today's Washington Post .
Global warming theorists aren't advocating climate science she notes, they're advocating political science.
The revelation of appalling actions by so-called climate change experts allows the American public to finally understand the concerns so many of us have articulated on this issue.
"Climate-gate," as the e-mails and other documents from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia have become known, exposes a highly politicized scientific circle -- the same circle whose work underlies efforts at the Copenhagen climate change conference. The agenda-driven policies being pushed in Copenhagen won't change the weather, but they would change our economy for the worse.
In contrast, Palin states
I've always believed that policy should be based on sound science, not politics. As governor of Alaska, I took a stand against politicized science when I sued the federal government over its decision to list the polar bear as an endangered species despite the fact that the polar bear population had more than doubled.
Therefore, she continues
But while we recognize the occurrence of these natural, cyclical environmental trends, we can't say with assurance that man's activities cause weather changes.
And so the woman with real government experience offers some advice to her former community organizing opponent.
Without trustworthy science and with so much at stake, Americans should be wary about what comes out of this politicized conference. The president should boycott Copenhagen.
Ah but what does she know? While she can see Russia from her house and has past experience, her winning opponent can experience the (declining) adoration of the Europeans even while trashing his promise to "restore science to its rightful place." Which will he choose? Alas, we know the answer.
