Palin on Global Warming:

The Washington Post published an op-ed from Palin's shop (it's unclear how much, if any, she wrote herself). Of interest are the following excerpts: (emp add)
With the publication of damaging e-mails from a climate research center in Britain, the radical environmental movement appears to face a tipping point.

... revelation of appalling actions by so-called climate change experts ...

... e-mails reveal that leading climate "experts" deliberately destroyed records, manipulated data to "hide the decline" in global temperatures, and tried to silence their critics ...

I got clobbered for my actions by radical environmentalists nationwide ....

... instead of staying home from Copenhagen and sending a message that the United States will not be a party to fraudulent scientific practices, the president has upped the ante.
That's a lot of name-calling.

Also, this:
... any potential benefits of proposed emissions reduction policies are far outweighed by their economic costs.
If global warming moves along the expected trajectory, the costs of shifing the planet's infrastructure to adjust to the changes will be enormous.

UPDATE: Ambinder (!) takes a critical line-by-line look at what Palin wrote.


there is also video of her during a campaign speech proclaiming alaska knows better than other states that climate change is real.

Obama writes his own speeches? If he wrote op-eds, do you think he would write them himself?

DefensiveTroll is Defensive.

Obama was Editor of the Harvard Law Review and later Constitutional Law professor. He's used to writing.

Palin was a beauty-queen runner up, small-town mayor, and won Alaska with 114,000 votes. She's used to bullshitting her way through life.
