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.
