(AP) ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin acknowledged Tuesday that global warming was harming her state but said stepped-up natural-gas production could mitigate its effects.
Speaking at a hearing before Interior Secretary Ken Salazar -- the third of several he is holding to consider renewed oil and gas leasing on the Outer Continental Shelf -- Palin said that relatively clean-burning natural gas could supplant dirtier fuels and slow the discharge of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
"We Alaskans are living with the changes that you are observing in Washington," she said. "The dramatic decreases in the extent of summer sea ice, increased coastal erosion, melting of permafrost, decrease in alpine glaciers and overall ecosystem changes are very real to us."

I simply WILL NOT vote for any imbecile who can’t examine evidence for HIM or HERSELF.
I may have to give up voting....
Say it ain’t so, Sarah.
Sarah! Et tu Brute?
I give up. They are all insane.
She is technically correct. As long as she doesn’t blame human emitted CO2 for it, that is.
Well, that’s disappointing, to say the least. The AGW hoax juggernaut keeps rolling over the formerly courageous. It’s bunk, people. You know it is. The proposed solutions are thinly masked power grabs. Get a spine.
Okay, one last Republican to believe in....Duncan Hunter.
After that, the GOP is utterly dead to me.
Well, I like the fact that she’s big on gas, it’s natural, it’s organic, comes right out of the ground!
Maybe she has already seccumbed to political expedient BS.
I do not believe in Global Warming. There is simply no evidence for it.
And I don’t care how many other people believe it.
It seems that she is an idiot after all.
I guess the ice export industry is really suffering.
I have no problem with people reporting observed periodic fluctuations in the earth’s temperature.
?!? What is she doing? She should have said get screwed. Oil and natural gas is owned by our state. We will put it to a vote in our state and let the citizens decide what we will develop.
AK was bought by the federal govt but can they just pass a state law where they will follow the 10th Amendment>
Seems she said it. Sad.
I wonder who got to her or what she read. I also wonder about the source.
