Sarah Palin - Climate change not caused by humans

Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is no friend of the environment. She does not believe that climate change is caused by human activity although she established a commission in Alaska to look at the impact of warming in Alaska. One of her most celebrated accomplishments as governor has been to sue the U.S. Department of Interior to overturn its May preliminary ruling to list the polar bear as a threatened animal. Palin is also a big supporter of expanded oil drilling in Alaska and offshore. The Republicans are playing a cynical game by enticing voters with the idea that drilling everywhere possible in the US will bring immediate relief at the gas pumps.

And speaking of oil prices, anyone notice that while the price of crude dropped to $100 a barrel yesterday, the price of gasoline (in Toronto anyway) rose about 13 cents a litre last night? Why? Because of a storm in the Gulf of Mexico that might disrupt oil production. Might.

And let's not forget that Stephen Harper is cut from the same conservative oil company cloth as Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, John McCain and Sarah Palin. "Drill, drill, drill, drill".
