Say what? Palin pipeline?

The pipeline Palin is backing and trying to get build….

"This spring, the state of Alaska announced that it would sue the US Fish and Wildlife Service to block the addition to the endangered species list of Alaska’s polar bears—which, if their habitat were protected, might pose an obstacle to the pipeline and other development. She has also opposed protecting beluga whales in waters slated for oil and gas drilling (and she has backed a plan that allows the aerial hunting of bears and wolves). She is a steadfast booster of opening ANWR to drilling (a move that McCain opposes). And she has said that while she is concerned about climate change, "I’m not one though who would attribute it to being man-made."

Wow…is she really worried about our environment???
"Palin has said that she’s "unconvinced" human emissions are contributing to global warming. "Science will tell us," her spokesman said. "She thinks the jury’s still out." If by "jury" she means "the Bible," then yes, the jury is still out. But if "jury" means scientific consensus, then Palin needs to check out the IPCC’s site or pick up an issue of Nature.

Though Palin may not believe in global warming, she does believe that polar bears are just fine, thank you very much. She sued the federal government in an attempt to derail their delayed listing of polar bears as an endangered species. In addition, Palin is in favor of drilling vital polar bear habitat in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, maybe in part because her husband works for BP. I don’t know if Palin is motivated to support oil companies for love or for money. Either way, with her as Vice President, life will look even bleaker for those ice-dependent polar bears."

    In the world of Palin you can go around and see other countries from your town and you have foreign policy experience. You don’t know what the Bush doctrine is and you think being VP is a do nothing job.

    IF SHE CAN"T HANDLE TOUGH QUESTIONS THEN SHE IS NOT READY TO BE PRESIDENT.

    NO FOREIGN POLICY EXPERIENCE IS DANGEROUS!

    Global warming is a farce it is not true! Second of all we need to drill our own oil, and he husband no longer works for the oil company. Please post your sources.

    Palin is oil crazy

    If you were concerned for the environment, you’d be out there helping get this pipeline constructed asap. It’s a natural gas pipeline, which is the future of motor fuel. CNG is cleaner burning, and we got an s-load of it. Stop being so PC, and let’s get this thing built.

    Palin blew it last night with her comment of war with Russia,No sane American or European leader would ever ever ever give an answer like that. You do not get into hypotheticals about nuclear war. You just don’t. Palin references the Cold War. The only reason the Cold War stayed cold is because our leaders understood the stakes of getting things wrong and saying things that could lead to catastrophic nuclear war. During the Cuban Missile Crisis every word, every public statement, and any message that the Kennedy administration sent to the Soviets was checked, double checked, and triple checked to make sure it was sending precisely the right signal. This is what you are forced to do when you have thousands of nuclear weapons and so does your opponent. The stakes are simply too high. And yet there is a nominee for the vice presidency of the United States who may one day have her hand on the button and she is casually talking about potential catastrophic nuclear war.

    Barack Obama would never give that answer. Joe Biden would never give that answer. They would say that we don’t discuss those types of hypotheticals. That might sound like a cop out, but think of the Palin alternative and what kind of alarm bells that sets off in Moscow. Prescisely the type of alarm bells that could one day lead to mushroom clouds.

    If you knew anything about "science " you would understand that science has no concensus thats just a lib term to try to say they are telling the truth and there is no argument .Check out the latest World Climate Association which is run by the UN THE WORLD TEMP HAS DECREASED THE LAST 10 YEARS

    Building a pipeline and drilling offshore will not, as the media and Dems will have you beleive, result in mass environmental destruction. The impact will be quite minimal, especaily in comparison to the benefits.

    Alaskans want ANWR drilling, in their back yard – that should tell you something.

    And the global warming argument is still an argument – there is great doubt about if any why warming is occuring.

    By the way – Obama wants natural gas from domestic sources – where do you think that comes from? He may not know, but Sarah Palin does.

    Can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs

    Would you rather have 5 more whales, or energy independence and lower gas prices for all Americans?…Which will benefit HUMANS more?

    The ends justify the means

    Also, because of the protection of polar bears, their numbers have increased to the point that they no longer qualify for ‘endangered species’ status…Look that one up

    What are you talking about lady. She is fighting "Big Oil"………LMAO if that aint a joke I don’t know what is…..This Flalin lady is the biggest joke of all times.

    scientists (real ones) have proven 90% of this global warming is something earth goes through in so many cycles.

    liberal scientists trying to get more government grants to keep their pockets lined and jobs for themselves are the diehard, "americans are killing earth" crap

    I also believe that global warming is a natural phenomenon. If it is caused by man. then how come we have had many global warnings and cooling over the ages. I’m sure you have heard of the ice age for instance. Also from what I know Polar bears are doing just fine, thank you. The photo’s of polar bears looking for solid ice that have shown up everywhere just happen to have been shot at the end of summer. That is a normal thing. Perhaps someone who actually lives in Alaska is more in tune with what really is going on then some scientist that goes there on a 2 week trip. Also I’m very much in favor of drilling in ANWR. Have you actually seen what ANWR looks like? It is a waste land. Before the pipeline in Alaska was built, people said how devastating it would be to wildlife. Many protests followed. Guess what, the animals actually have done better since it was built and they happen to like the warmth that comes from the pipeline. I’m sorry you disagree, but that is why we have all different opinions about things.
