Climategate – Sensible Advice From Sarah Palin
Posted by Tory Aardvark
Former Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin has some sensible advice for Obama on her Facebook Page about the Copenhagen summit.
The president’s 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 Inhofe’s 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. I’ve 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 man’s activities for the earth’s cyclical weather changes. The drastic economic measures being pushed by dogmatic environmentalists won’t 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 public’s 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.”
The traditional left of centre Mainstream Media dont like Sarah Palin as was seen during the 2008 US Presidential campaign where every attempt was made to smear her, her family and her record as Governor of Alaska.
Unfortunately for the US Media Sarah Palin is a folk hero to large swathes of middle American and has the potential to be the next Ronald Regan, her comments on Climategate are considered, well balanced and reasonable.
There are many questions to be answered about the Climate Change data, the methodology the scientists used; enough questions that would make any sensible well balanced person step back and re-evaluate the data and the conclusions.
It seems to be mainly in Europe where there is this evangelical crusade to steam roller through a treaty based on fraudulent data led by Gordon Brown and the EUSSR who now own this country after the sell out of no referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.
The big question remains why do they want an agreement based on discredited data at any price?
