Just what we need: another denier in the White House

From The New Republic:

Astoundingly, Sarah Palin has denied that climate change is man-made–not in 1996, not in 1998, not in 2000, not in 2002, but in an interview posted on August 29, 2008.

In response to this question: “What is your take on global warming and how is it affecting our country?” Palin answered: “A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I’m not one though who would attribute it to being man-made.”

Oh mate. I wouldn’t care so much if it weren’t for the fact that both Labour and National politicians seem to constantly take their cues from these American turkeys.  She’s also quite keen on drilling large holes all over her own state of Alaska in the search for more oil to feed the addiction.  And, look, we’ve got politicians here wanting to do the same thing to the Great South Basin.
