Skip to comments.Sarah Palin: Mr. President: Boycott Copenhagen; Investigate Your Climate Change "Experts"
Posted on 12/03/2009 4:40:25 PM PST by euram
The presidents decision to attend the international climate conference in Copenhagen needs to be reconsidered in light of the unfolding Climategate scandal. The leaked e-mails involved in Climategate expose the unscientific behavior of leading climate scientists who deliberately destroyed records to block information requests, manipulated data to hide the decline in global temperatures, and conspired to silence the critics of man-made global warming. I support Senator James Inhofes call for a full investigation into this scandal. Because it involves many of the same personalities and entities behind the Copenhagen conference, Climategate calls into question many of the proposals being pushed there, including anything that would lead to a cap and tax plan.
Policy should be based on sound science, not snake oil. I took a stand against such snake oil 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 has increased. Ive never denied the reality of climate change; in fact, I was the first governor to create a subcabinet position to deal specifically with the issue. I saw the impact of changing weather patterns firsthand while serving as governor of our only Arctic state. But while we recognize the effects of changing water levels, erosion patterns, and glacial ice melt, we cannot primarily blame mans activities for the earths cyclical weather changes. The drastic economic measures being pushed by dogmatic environmentalists wont change the weather, but will dramatically change our economy for the worse.
Policy decisions require real science and real solutions, not junk science and doomsday scare tactics pushed by an environmental priesthood that capitalizes on the publics worry and makes them feel that owning an SUV is a sin against the planet. In his inaugural address, President Obama declared his intention to restore science to its rightful place. Boycotting Copenhagen while this scandal is thoroughly investigated would send a strong message that the United States government will not be a party to fraudulent scientific practices. Saying no to Copenhagen and cap and tax are first steps in restoring science to its rightful place.
- Sarah Palin
It won’t happen but he needs to investigate the carbon trading market while he’s at it. After all, he sat on the board at the Joyce Foundation when they gave the money that funded the opening of the Chicago climate exchange.
Sarah Palin is a Free Republic Lurker and she listens. She is right on the money here. So where are the rest of the Republicans? Where is Pawlenty?
Best collection of ClimateGate clips — send to friends!!
No wonder lefties hate her. She’s not afraid to say the truth.
The more I hear from this fine lady, the more I like her-!! She will get my vote-!
Go get ‘em Sarah!
I like the graphic at the top of that web page.
I see she read my post:
"ClimateGate will eventually make its way into the MSM and in retrospect Obama will look like an idiot for buying into a discredited theory. He might has well be going to a county fair to buy some snake oil."
If anyone else is inaugurated POTUS in January 2013, that individual will be, at best, the second best person for the job.
Palin’s sense of timing is amazing. She holds her fire for 12 days allows the story to work its way up over the internet. allows the Congress to act on it and also allows the media to try to bury it. And then unloads both barrels. Now she will make the Media cover it. +1,000,000 just got a wake up call on AGW from facebook. She is going to hammer this and make the media pound sand.
I’ve been waiting for our mainstream politicians to jump up and start throwing a fit about this whole scam, and aside from Inhofe, I’m still waiting.
It looks like its Inhofe and Palin. The others are still waiting to see which way the wind is going to blow.
Has anyone noticed that, while they keep claiming that Palin is bush-league, she is the one who keeps standing up and taking on the Obama fraudmachine while everyone else studies their shoes?
Ain’t she great...Madame President
Ain't she nice
Look her over once or twice
Now I ask you very confidentially
Ain't she nice?
Just cast an eye in her direction
Oh me, oh my, ain't that perfection
Besides her speeches, Sarah Palin is writing articles several times a week on the War in Iraq , Afghanistan and our need for victory, the unemployment and economy issues, on the bogus global warming and in support of
Sen Inhofe’s investigation of this., and other issues of International and Natinal concern.
The Palin bashers only wish they had a candidate half as
informed and would have supporters who would wait in line in 30 degree weather over night to see and hear their candidate.
so true. Those that said she should “leave the room” owe her an a big apology. She has done more to derail Obama than all the gop together
I LOVE how she smacks down Obama. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. She says how she feels. The media doesn’t even bring up Climategate because it proves that this whole “Global warming theory” is nothing but a bunch of BS. When Sarah becomes President in 2012, it would be an honor to attend the inauguration. She will make a GREAT President
RE: “The more I hear from this fine lady, the more I like her-!! She will get my vote-!”
Agree — I became convinced I was in her corner when viewing the on-the-road interview Greta Van Susteren did with her on the book tour — on the bus. She was great — had a lot to say of substance — I was impressed! Go Sarah!
I think she once mentioned that she lurks on a lot of Conservative sites, including C4P. She never mentioned FreeRepublic but some of her facebook posts make me believe she definitely lurks here
“We’re not worthy. We’re not worthy.”
Sarah, you’re one of us, a breath of fresh air. Keep it going! We love you! America is coming back!
saw a post on here by one freeper who mentioned freerepublic to her, and she said she did come here to her. Nothing official, but most freepers wouldn’t post something like that unless she said it, IMHO......
Hunter was all over this, even before the leaked e-mails.
She is brilliant.
You can add Sensenbrenner to that list and at least a few other Republican members of the House Energy committee that met yesterday. The list is small but growing. But I agree with your sentiment.
There is not going to be much new coming out on Climategate except possibly some analysis of the computer code. The story, IMHO, now turns to the question of what the MSM will do going forward - will they continue to spike the story, try to whitewash it or cover it honestly. Copenhagen plus Climategate could and should be a hoot. Will it be. We'll know next week.
But perhaps the more important question is what will the Republicans do. They have been handed a silver dagger to stick into the heart of the Obama administration and the Democrat party. Will they use it? I would like to be confident that they would. But I'm not. They do seem to be sitting back and waiting. Waiting. Waiting.
Indeed. You beat me to it with your comment. I was going to remark that more people will learn about climategate from this one Facebook post than have from all the mainstream/state-controlled media.
The Holy Anointed Savior of the world sees his house of cards falling down.

I can’t think of a single thing this goomba has done right. He’s a walking disaster area.
Jimmah Carter x10
We really aren't.
Thank you Sarah!!!
I see my short list starting to form.
DeMint, Inhofe, Palin...
And Hunter, if he wants it. He may think he has no chance. But once you eliminate the Repubs who bought into the globwarm conspiracy, and the ones who bought into universal healthcare, and the ones who are weak on the border, and the ones who haven’t figured out which side they’re on this early in the game (and are thereby disqualified from serious consideration) its a very short list. And with an incompetent marxian poser facing him from the other side, by all rights this shouldn’t be that tough.
what else would you expect from a man that bowls a 36?
Agreed. She has the intelligence, savvy and more importantly the common sense to govern.
On a personal note, I visited family over Thanksgiving. My sister dislikes Obama with a passion, but Sarah too. She’s been brainwashed by her wildlife federation membership who keep sending out requests for money to fight against her killing wildlife from helicopters. I told my sister that she is no longer governor, but she’s stubborn about stuff like that and still holds that grudge against her.
she said about the same thing in the charlie gibson interview last year.
Wonderful Madame Next President.
The carbon traders must be beaten back with the truth.
This house of cards must come down.
While the emails from the CRU are damning it is the
programming code complete with foot notes that proves
the so called research has no scientific value what so ever.
The graphs and data created by this fraud will be used
to initiate the greatest criminal transfer of wealth from the civilized
world and enslave the United States under a one world government
run by world socialist out of the United Nation.
Sarah Palin, you must run and win the next Presidential election.
I’m in love.
Your comment choked me up sir!
I'll start paying attention to him too, then...
...what will the Republicans do. They have been handed a silver dagger to stick into the heart of the Obama administration and the Democrat party. Will they use it?
They should be on the floor of the senate throwing furniture about now, on this, and on Holder's handling of the KSM trial, they should be demanding his removal from office. I keep saying, where is the senator who wants to be president? Because the guy who calls for Holder's removal, and makes it stick, is the next president, in my opinion.
They do seem to be sitting back and waiting. Waiting. Waiting.
Drives me nuts.
My short list is Hunter/DeMint/King/Pence/Palin, in that order. Hopefully, more than one of these will be running cause we are going to get a slug of RINOs too, like Mitt, Perry & Pawlenty. And wimps like Santorum.
Tell her what Palin said about AK wildlife in her book. That should win her over.
Palin said. “In AK there is plenty of room for all of AK wildlife....right next to the mashed potatoes...”
I was ROFLMAO when I read that one in her book
You should all read her tweets. Not only is she smacking him down on facebook, but on twitter as well.
Baffling/nonsensical:Obama’s talk of yet another debt-ridden “stimulus”pkg.Fight this 1, America, bc after last 1 unemploymnt rose,debt grew
Stand by for Facebook entry on Obama’s climate change “experts” & their latest shenanigans. Thank God “Climategate” truth is being revealed!
James Madison: Thomas, this Mrs. Palin appears to be quite an annoyance to the current leadership at times
Thomas Jefferson: ~smiling~ Indeed she does, Jemmy, indeed she does"
James Madison: Do you suppose she has a future in politics?
Thomas Jefferson: I suppose, Jemmy, for the sake of the United States, she had better
